|Jun-15-12|| ||GrahamClayton: Not content with one bad bishop, Black decides to play with two bad bishops!|
|Oct-02-15|| ||Phony Benoni: Black's position is so bad that zugzwang would be an improvement.|
|Oct-03-15|| ||perfidious: To put it mildly.|
|Jan-17-17|| ||ASchultz: ...Bg4 looks suspect if you don't want to take. It's hard to see how the lightsquared bishop doesn't get mired if it doesn't trade for the Nf5. That presents other problems, to be sure, but man. What a steamrolling. I'm going to try this against any pseudo benko I face in the future.|
|Jan-17-17|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Black resigns, down two minor pieces. What's that you say? He has a pair of Bishops? Where?|
4.Bg5 has had outstanding success vs. 3...b5, according to the database. 4...Qb6 seems the comparatively best response.
|Jan-17-17|| ||AlicesKnight: The Bishops have gone on an ecclesiastical retreat or has St. Martin founded his first monastery?|
|Jan-17-17|| ||Junbalansag: Bishops should be paragon of virtues and not be considered "bad"! The irony of it all is that they caused the king's doenfall! :)|
|Jan-17-17|| ||morfishine: This is "Game of the Day"????????|
|Jan-17-17|| ||kevin86: Black pieces are tied in knots!|
|Jan-17-17|| ||YetAnotherAmateur: I'm surprised no one called this "Being very un-Dudas"|
|Jan-17-17|| ||JohnBoy: The idea of locking in the bishops w 13.Ng3 is sweet.|
|Jan-17-17|| ||fm avari viraf: Rarely one sees both the Bishops juxtaposed in their coffins!|
|Jan-17-17|| ||whiteshark: <Only a good bishop can be sacrificed, a bad bishop can only be lost.> |
|Jan-17-17|| ||Robyn Hode: Let's see, I have two bad bishops. What should I do? I know! Trade off my only active piece!|
|Jan-17-17|| ||tamar: Zippety Dudas|
|Jan-17-17|| ||morfishine: One of the worst games showcased as "Game of the Day"|
Just what does "Game of the Day" mean anyways?
The most current dumb game title?
Or an actually instructive game?
This game fails at both of these minimum criteria

I liked the game. It's cool to see those black bishops stuck in the corner like that. It was a really bad position. So bad that it makes the game interesting.
This is one of those games, and we all play them from time to time, where everything goes wrong for black and white mops up. I bet patzers love seeing the mop up phase of this game because they have a tough time winning mop ups.
Speaking of patzers, I've come to realize that following blitz games on chess.com between two patzers (say, 1000-1200) can be really interesting and funny. You never know what's going to happen. It like watching a cockroach race.
