Slav defense: check out this continuation 1. d4 d5
2. c4 c6
3. Nc3 dxc4 (usually black plays Nf6)
4. a4 Nf6
5. e3 Na6?!
6. Bxc4 Nb4
7. Nf3 Bf5

which looks bad for white, but...

8. e4! Nxe4? (Bg6 was necessary)
9. Nxe4 Bxe4
10. Bxf7+ Kxf7
11. Ng5+ Kg6
12. Nxe4

Black fought hard, was eventually checkmated, and then accused me of cheating (this was on yahoo of course).

I do not can think that somebody can do cheating because if I like to play chess, what is the meaning of using a computer chess game?. This ask has two responsse:
- to play your program and your openent!!!. This method is bad because you do not play.
- is a programmer and need to try how won is his algorithm. Well this response have one ask, if the software that he is doing is based on IA and not on Points, this person for me is not a cheater is excellent.

I had saw the moves and I think that the game was for black, if black losed, black should had a very bad move on the rest.

Sorry for my english but I am a Spanish boy and I do not write english than I can read it.

hrm It looks quite natural and after Kg6 black is really in a bad position, considering Ra3, Qg4, the knight on e4 and blacks poor rooks, the not-in-game knight and his exposed king.
IF black plays Nb4 and Bf5 the answer e4 is natural and sometimes the only move. I do not know, what you opponent had in mind, perhaps he was just a bit angry, because his 3-move-plan did not work out...

Well, I think it's kind of obvious he was angry... had he played Bg6 (instead of Nxe4), white can continue 9. 0-0 e6 10. Qe2, activate the queen's bishop, and leave black's Knight on b4 looking kind of useless.

I think the mistake is instructive, however, because it shows how even a creative defense falls short if it doesn't obey the dummy rules of how to open a game, i.e. don't move a minor piece more than once until all your pieces are out; develop towards the center, etc.
