    Why should white play Nb5 in step 8, instead of Qf4. Also black’s response in step 8 is also interesting, I thought Bxf3 would be more appropriate.

    8.Qf4 will be followed by 8…Qxf4 9.Bxf4 Bxd1 10.Kxd1 and black will have a gigantic material advantage
    If black plays Bxf3 after 8.Nb5 then white will continue with 9.Nxc7#.
    It would be better that this checkmate has been mentioned in the lesson above.

    I don’t think many good players would take the d-pawn as they feel that White gets too much development.
