Jul-30-11  uscfratingmybyear: 3 fold coming=draw.
Jul-30-11  Beholder: <OneArmedScissor: 1. e4 then back to 1. d4 hmmmm>

<waustad: Then they briefly had e4 played when it was really d4. It was fixed.>

Giri played 1.e4, hoping for 1...e5.

Kramnik replied 1...c5!

Giri started crying.

Kramnik said, "There, there, kid. Don't cry. You can take that back if you want."

Giri played 1.d4 after that.

Perhaps you shouldn't try to squeeze your crap into a civilised site such as this one, considering you've just managed to violate chessgames.com's posting guideline #1.
