  FSR: As <kiblitzer> suggested, the position after 7...g6?? would make a good Monday puzzle.

  perfidious: Black went Bass fishing and hooked himself a barracuda.

Why this is given the appellation 'Bishop's Opening' is beyond my understanding: after all, it is not as though the move order 1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 Nf6 3.Nc3 was used.

  FSR: <perfidious> Yes, I would call it a Vienna Game.
