  Phony Benoni: I can understand why this game has no kibitzing. A couple of patzers, one of whom seems unable to move any piece but his king. Dull opening and middlegame. Even the final mate isn't good enough for a puzzle, since White has two different ways to finish Black off in two moves.

I don't even know why I'm bothering to comment on it.

Feb-03-17  Saniyat24: Funny Game...the Black Queen has only one move in the game, and after a lot of struggle the Black King could say hello to the White King...!

While I agree with your tongue in cheek overview, you overlooked one point: the position out of the opening looks as though someone took the pieces and dumped them across the board in random fashion. (laughs)
