  andrewjsacks: No, it is not true that Duckworth learned his openings on a space voyage to Mars.
May-06-12  King Death: <andrewjsacks> But where then? I remember this player and he came up with some weird stuff. In this game (W M Duckworth vs E Schiller, 1988) he goes up against a more "conventional" line in the Grob and doesn't have a good time there either.

  Phony Benoni: Played in the same round as F J Sanz Alonso vs W Shipman, 1983. Apparently, the players were trying to impress Korchnoi, who was playing in the tournament after his Candidates Match with Kasparov was cancelled.

You could have fooled me.

  morfishine: Eccentric minor piece play by Black. His LSB goes to <g4> then back to <c8>. His Queen Knight goes to <d7>, back to <b8>, then out normally to <c6> and finally <d4> Meanwhile, his hyper-active King Knight cycles thru <h6>, <f5>, <d6> <e8>, <c7> & <e6> where it delivers the crushing blow 32...Nxg5
