  FSR: You would Kraai too if it happened to you. (No, I'm not submitting that as a pun - too long.)

  perfidious: <FSR> Why not? After all, the lyrics went 'You'd cry too if it happened to you', etc. 'You'd Kraai too' seems enough to submit this.

By the way, White's behaviour in crushing his strong opponent so quickly could be described as rather Boorish-no respect at all.

  FSR: <perfidious> OK, you've persuaded me. :-)

Nov-09-18  Gouvaneur: 4...f5? is known to be refuted. And yes, compared to the King's Gambit, which people claim to be incorrect, 4...f5? really has a clear refutation.
Nov-10-18  Granny O Doul: Miles did try 4...f5 in an eventual rematch of his famous lost game to Walter Browne, and managed to draw the second time. Not to say the move shouldn't lose; maybe it should.
