Feb-20-08  D.Observer: Semi-Epaulette?!
Aug-21-08  TheTamale: I've probably fallen for this myself at some point.

  whiteshark: You'd almost think ...for some unknown reason.
Dec-20-08  WhiteRook48: Is this guy related to NN?
Dec-24-08  WhiteRook48: rather than the King's Gambit Declined, this should be called the King's Gambit Accepted, since Black accepted White's gambit of the king.
Jul-21-10  jbtigerwolf: This game should actually get the record as the shortest tournament game, as a checkmate was completed.

whiterook48, it's not a KG Accepted, as that is when Black takes the pawn.

It's a King's Gambit Declined, where White has then straight away taken the pawn, capturing toward the centre (standard advice and 'good practise'!)... and from that moment, move 3, he's gone!

Finding stuff like this is really good. I can make 2...♗c4 my reply to KG now. If White doesn't know the trap and is not observant, he takes the pawn and Black has a point.

4.g3 ♕xe4+ 5.♗e2 ♕xh1 is awful.. 5...♕g2 and 6...♗f2# is too obvious: 6.d4. ♗ut 4.g3 ♕xe4+ 5.♕e2 ♕xh1 6.♘f3 traps the Black Queen for a minute... I think White has a playable game, especially if Black tries to finish him off quickly, but Black is still in the box seat.

  Nightsurfer: Amazing: Mr. Tchinenoff has decided to create a goof that is quite similar to Lindemann's catastrophe at Kiel 1893, please compare Lindemann vs Echtermeyer, 1893

Not even close. The players can agree to a draw after one move, or even no moves. http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches... Even adding the caveat that the game must have a decisive result, four moves is by no means the record. There are forfeits after one move, Pillsbury vs Von Bardeleben, 1895, or even zero moves, Fischer vs Spassky, 1972; Kramnik vs Topalov, 2006; E Shaposhnikov vs A Riazantsev, 2009 (among many others). One can even resign after one move. Fischer vs Panno, 1970. It is also possible to get a lost position after just three moves, and resign, Z Djordjevic vs M Kovacevic, 1984, or even to get mated in two, L Darling vs R Wood, 1983, or three moves, E Schiller vs H Pack, 1969; Lindemann vs Echtermeyer, 1893.

  Infohunter: Perhaps White, seeing what a gaffe he'd made with 3.fxe5, decided to end it quickly with 4.Ke2, rather than 4.g3, which loses "only" a Rook after 4...Qxe4+.
