A sneaky trap with the Morra

One of the quickest games played during last weekends NSW Open was this brevity executed by Shay Keinan. It is a trappy line in the Morra Gambit, and Black very helpfully walked right into it. While White is already on top as early as move 8, it is only the disastrous choice of  9. ... Kd7 (instead of 9. ... Rb8) that allows White to slam the door shut.
