  beenthere240: And this man wrote one of the classic books on chess openings (in which he made fun of "irregular" openings).
Apr-07-11  Monoceros: The scary thing is that this odd opening actually makes a tiny bit of sense for me. Fine gets to employ a Bird's setup only with a Knight maneuvered first to eye the troublesome e4 and g4 squares where Black can make trouble after the f-pawn push. But maybe Black didn't simply didn't play aggressively enough on the Kingside.
Apr-07-11  DanielBryant: Yeah, White's set up seems extremely solid, and Black has no obvious plan on that side of the board (nor on the queenside, as the knight on c6 constricts his options a bit).
Apr-07-11  hedgeh0g: Smells like early 20th century bullet chess to me.

  HeMateMe: You know, if Fink had cheated, than FIDE might have fined the Fink in Fine/Fink, who Fine felt SHOULD be fined, for being a fink in Fine/Fink, and that would have been fine with Fine, Fink being funked by FIDE.

fortunately, all was Fine and well.

Jul-07-17  PawnSac: < HeMateMe: > Are you trying to say Fine finely finked Fink the FIDE funker who frequently felt fairly flustered for favoring f files with fewer fractures? Thats freekin' fabulous!

  profK: After 8 moves Black looks absolutely fine, ie has a space advantage. 9...g6 looks a bit ordinary.

  TheFocus: "He's a fine player, isn't he?"

"Who, Fine? No, he's a fink."

"What about Fink?"

"Fink's a fine player."
