  hedgeh0g: It takes something special to lose an English Opening with White in 11 moves.

  Gilmoy: <4.Bb5+> drops tempi and returns the pawn. Then Black has almost Evans-like Bs with speedboats.

c4-e4 and dxc6 manages to create a hole at d3 <and> expose it to a fast double. It's as clockwork as the 5(. or ...)NxR# puzzle.

<7.Qc2?> must be the final nail: 7.Nf3 and White could castle and dig in vs. Bc5-Qb6-Ba6.

  perfidious: This gambit looks a mite dodgy, but in two games with the late Harry Lyman, I made no attempt at refutation, preferring to steer the game into positional channels with 3.Nc3, rather than head for tactical melees very much to my esteemed opponent's liking.

  hedgeh0g: <perfidious> Probably a prudent decision. The game will most likely veer into Anglo/Neo-Grünfeld territory, with White having the ability to adopt a variety of set-ups against Black's hypermodern formation.

Of course, Black can always insist on gambiting a pawn with 3...c6?!, but it's hardly advisable when White is so solid (not to mention the first-move advantage).

  perfidious: <hedgeh0g>: My memory these days is wretched, but I believe Harry did just that in both games and I won both fairly easily.
