O.k. Deep Shredder, It Is My Turn Now

You did a great job in the postmortem with your fast silicon brain. But mine is flesh and blood. That is slow and analog. So let's have a flesh and blood look at this position after 1.e4 c5 2.d4 cxd4 3.c3 dxc3 4.Nxc3 g6 5.Nf3 Bg7 6.Bc4 e6 7.O-O Qc7

(My opponent just has played Qc7)

It requires al real cascade of errors for not being able to punish this blunder of Black:
  • Behaving as if Qc7?? were a normal book move
  • Playing too fast in a critical situation
  • Playing too slowly in a quiet situation
  • Not having stored a basic opening pattern in the brain
  • Not exploiting important Morra Gambit resources
  • Overrating the attacking power of the Queen
  • Not having looked at all forcing moves

More about all these points later.

Deep Shredder played this? Are you sure? What are the settings?

I checked this out on Shredder 10 and he plays 1. e4 c5 2. d4 cxd4 3. c3 dxc3 4. Nxc3 g6 5.Nf3 Bg7 6. Bc4 e6 7. O-O Ne7.

This is a standard B21 ECO. Very odd. Either Deep Shredder has a bug or something is set wrong.

Oops misleading post. Just clarified it. It was my opponent who played. Deep Shredder just helps me in the postmortem.
