  pawn52: If 9.c4 then 9...Bxc4#. A very good game.
Dec-07-04  Milo: 7.e4 looks to be the decisive error. 7.Qc1, 7.Bg5, 7.Bc1 or 7.Rh3 avoid mate. I think those are the only possibilities?

  tpstar: White got off to a bad start with 2. h3!? but the decisive error was 4. f3?! which created fatal weaknesses on the Kingside dark squares. Black should have played 5 ... e5! winning a Pawn (6. e3? Qh4+ 7. g3 Qxg3+ 8. Ke2 Ba6+ like the game) while still disrupting White's position. This is why we study openings - so you won't lose from an early a-salt.

  Whitehat1963: Muskietorz wasn't worth his weight in salt. (What a horrible pun!)
Mar-08-05  mack: It's a well guarded secret, but 2.h3 is actually the best move after 1.d4 Nf6.
Premium Chessgames Member
  azaris: At least it's a nice Boden's Mate.
Mar-08-05  Saruman: Would you like to have some TableSalt?
May-06-05  soberknight: Stop with the puns already: you're pouring Salt in an open wound! ;-)
Jul-12-05  fgh: White played badly here, and he lost quickly. He weakened the g3 square which almost always, is a suicide.
Premium Chessgames Member
  McCool: What was the point of moving the h-pawn twice? Muskietorz is a pretty bad player.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: This guy is the first of the Muskietorz, but where are the other two?

  whiteshark: I wonder if Black was Evelyn Salt who has been accused of being a Russian sleeper agent...
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <whiteshark> I dunno. If we assume that she is around the same age as Angelina Jolie (1975-), who plays her in the movie <Salt>, she would have been awfully young (-27 or so) at the time of this game.

  whiteshark: <FSR> Isn't that the prof that time-travelling is possible? :D
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <whiteshark> Now that neutrons can travel faster than the speed of light, nothing surprises me.
Nov-23-11  ughaibu: It's only Italian neutrons.

  Domdaniel: Didn't Mussolini get Italian neutrons to run on time?
Dec-17-14  john barleycorn: No, only the prontos.
