|Jul-18-06|| ||Zivildiener: <How come Short crushed Fritz 6 in '01 before and there wasn't a program (maybe Fritz 7 was out but this was in February) stronger than Fritz 6.>
afaik short crushed fritz 6 in tournament chess (loooong time settings) but lost against whoever (I follow the 'proofs' of a chess engine, it looks like it for me) in rapid chess with shorter time control....|
|Jul-18-06|| ||lopium: I would call this opening the suicide's one. Maybe as bad as the damocles with black. lol|
|Jul-18-06|| ||Sneaky: Here's an example of this opening actually working out for White -- S Williams vs M Simons, 1999|
|Jul-18-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: This reminds me of the <WannaBe> opening 1.e4 c5 2.Ke2?? :)|
|Jul-18-06|| ||Larsker: <This reminds me of the <WannaBe> opening 1.e4 c5 2.Ke2?? :)>|
I also like 1.e4 c5 2.0-0 - although some petty people complain about it.

|Jul-18-06|| ||A.Alekhine: A suicidal opening!|
|Jul-18-06|| ||Peligroso Patzer: In Andrew Soltis's very interesting book "Catalog of Chess Mistakes" at page 152 he gives a game (D. Brown vs. Kramer, Philadelphia 1976) that begins 1. f3 (!? per Soltis) e5 2. Kf2 (!? again per Soltis) that White wins in 38 moves. The primary lesson he seeks to impart from the game is a warning against an overconfident attitude. (Soltis speculates that Black must have imagined, after White's weird opening, that his [Black's] position "would win by itself".)|
|Jul-18-06|| ||GlennOliver: Does anyone please have the PGNs of those games of Short v. Fischer / unknown computer ?|
|Jul-18-06|| ||Fischeristhebest: <GlennOliver> http://www.chessbase.com/games/iccf...|
|Jul-18-06|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: I shall translate the pun to the croatian language: "seres" means "you are sh|tt|ng". So, "Are you you are sh|tt|ng?" Lovely.|
|Jul-18-06|| ||kevin86: I like the exchange variation of the Bird's opening:1 f4 e5 2 g3 exf4 3 gxf4 lol. We can call it the "for the birds opening"|
|Jul-18-06|| ||kevin86: "You Can't be Seres!"-Jay Macked and rowed-|
|Jul-18-06|| ||mistergore: yoyo this game sucks
|Jul-18-06|| ||psmith: <Fischeristhebest> The link you provided does not have any games against Short.|
|Jul-18-06|| ||Phony Benoni: <kevin86> Your "For the Birds Opening" reminds me of the "Bunko Gambit": 1.e4 Nc6 2.f4 f5 3.e5 g5!?. A brilliant positional concept, but with tactical weaknesses.|
|Jul-18-06|| ||mahmoudkubba: <Are You Seres?>: The say of the day might also means r u a mathematical series, r u a biological series, r u a chemical series ...etc HaHaHa|
|Jul-18-06|| ||patzer2: I suppose 1. f3?! is one of the worst opening moves White can make. It wastes tempo, obstructs the f1 Knight's development to it's ideal post at f3, and gives up the initiative on the first move.|
Still, despite being behind in development, White was in the game after nine moves. However White missed his chance to equalize with 10. f4 =, which allowed Black to play the positional pawn sacrifice 10...f4! with decisive advantage.
After the key followup moves 11...Qh4+ and 12...0-0, I'm sure the imminent destruction of White's Kingside was obvious to both players.
|Jul-18-06|| ||Sneaky: < I suppose 1. f3?! is one of the worst opening moves White can make.> Definitely among the worst, but in its defense, it does control e4. I'd rank it better than a4, h4 and worse than pretty much anything else.|
|Dec-04-06|| ||GlennOliver: Fischeristhebest,
Apologies for the delayed reply, and many thanks for the excellent link to the new Fischer games.
|Dec-04-06|| ||asip87: oh shyt.. never think of dat opening in my whole life... r u srius... gg anyway..|
|Dec-04-06|| ||RookFile: I actually know Chris, and have played him. I managed to win the game. However, today he is a master, and I don't play any more, so I'm sure he'd kill me in a game.|
|Apr-01-09|| ||whiteshark: <patzer2: <I suppose 1. f3?! is one of the worst opening moves White can make.>> I think it's often playble as 2.f3 after 1.d4.|
|Apr-11-09|| ||wigglyjack: lol I cant believe anyone commented on this game. Here is how it happened. It was the last round of a 12 round tournaments and the other players and I went out drinking the night before. I made some crack about playing 1.g4 and someone bet me some money that I wouldnt. The stakes went up as the openings got more rediculous. Finally it was decided that I would play the Home run attack. In the home run attack you play f2-e3-then Kf2-Ke3-Kd2-Ke1...first second third and home! My opponent prevented me from getting to second base though. By the terms of the bet I was then allowed to play what ever I wanted.|
Dont get drunk when deciding on what opening to play!
|Apr-11-09|| ||Jim Bartle: "My opponent prevented me from getting to second base though."|
I should think so. I would have called the arbiter long before second base.
