Dec-19-03  morphyvsfischer: someone lost to the worst first move... how embarassing...
Feb-17-04  Gurch: There's nothing wrong with 1. f3... better than 1. Na3 if you ask me.
Mar-07-04  haha: At the end white is too strong the past pawn. For black two castle can't be use well.
Mar-14-04  InspiredByMorphy: Black deserved to lose for not playing 3.d4 Whites 3.Nc3 asks to be punished. Lack of aggression.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Fine knew what he was doing. He transposed into a sometimes nasty little gambit of the Caro-Kann sometimes called the Fantasy Variation: 1.e4,c6; 2.d4,d5; 3.f3!? I agree with I.B.M. that 3...d4 needed to be played.
Aug-08-04  vonKrolock: probably 1...c5 or 1...e5 are more consistent as immediate attempt to refute this "Gedult Opening" - in a game Gedult-Wheeler, Trouville 1968, ocurred 1.f3 c5 2.e4 e5 3.Bc4 Nc6 4.d4 cxd4 5.f4!? d6 6.Nf3 Bg4 7.c3 (This sort of King's Gambit whith a tempo behind could hardly be called a remarkable achievement...)

  patzer2: Fine's 21. Rxe7+! initiaties a neat trapped piece combination.
Feb-24-09  WhiteRook48: I don't think 1. f3 is a Fine move

10.Nxd5! cxd5 11.Bc8 or 11.Bd2 with white advantage.
