Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-13-03  chessamateur: This is how you should not play the opening. (White)
Feb-11-04  boneheadcharles: Anyone seen the Crab Variation of the Ware Opening? It goes like 1. a4 e5 2. h4. Just look at that position. after 2. ...d5, or something to that effect, White has virtually no way to win. The guy who thought of calling moves like 1.a4 and 1.h4 as an actual opening has got to be some sort of a lunatic.
Apr-23-04  apprenticetocaissa: I wouldn't call them lunatics; how about unorthodox? I like the players that stray from the overanalyzed e4 and d4 openings.
Apr-24-04  acirce: You can stray from overanalyzed openings and still avoid obviously sucking moves.
Jun-28-05  InspiredByMorphy: 10.h3? loses . Since castling is no good on this move, I like the looks of 10.Ke2
May-18-10  Cushion: Ke2? Nxf7!
