Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-02-04  Knight13: Nxh4 is a blunder.
Nov-15-05  JYMMI: aff! warren lose the game because he wanted the pawn on g3 were protecting white against a mate with the queen so when he captured the rook, black had a free way to the mate
Mar-17-09  TheTamale: Let's see... this is the 120th Bill Wall opponent to fall for a variant of the Fool's Mate. He must have that effect on people.
Apr-11-09  FSR: One wonders if the move order was actually 4.g3? h5! 5.Nf3 h4! That would make a lot more sense. After 4.Nf3 (the move that the game score indicates was played), 4...h5? is a ridiculous move (4...g5 or 4...Nf6 is normal), which only makes sense if White obligingly plays 5.g3??
Apr-11-09  MaxxLange: 5 e4 seems normal and good after 5...h5?

<FSR> Your line does make more sense, but I've seen worse play in North Carolina tournaments :)

May-02-12  tim butler: I like this Warren. He plays like I do!
Mar-09-18  Korora: The Bird opening, leading to a Rook sac. The pun just makes itself.

But anyway, Warren should have pushed the d or e pawn instead of pawn-snatching.
