  fredthebear: 1.f3 is the worst first move in chess. Black's heart must have jumped when he saw White pick up the g-pawn for the second move, just missing Fool's Mate.

The interposition 22...Ne7 is a nice way to trip up the White queen!

  fredthebear: Wikipedia says... After 1.f3 e5 some players even continue with the nonsensical 2.Kf2, which is sometimes called the Fried Fox Attack, Wandering King Opening, The Hammerschlag, Tumbleweed, the Pork Chop Opening, or the Half Bird as it is often called in the United Kingdom, due to its opening move f3 being half that of the f4 employed in Bird's Opening.

1...f6 is the Barnes Defence, named after Thomas Barnes (18251874) of England, who once used it to defeat none other than the great Paul Morphy. It's true - FTB aint foolin' about that! Therefore, White's 1.f3 is sometimes called Barnes Opening as well as the names given above.
