  FSR: Weirdly, the position after my fifth move could also have arisen from a sideline of Petroff's Defense: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Nxe5 Nc6? 4.Nxc6 dxc6 5.d3 Bc5. Of course 6.Bg5? was a lemon, and 8.Kg1?? an even worse one.

  whiteshark: <FSR> I found the following example given by Emanuel Lasker in his <Common sense of Chess>. Compared to your game he switched black's moves 6+7. ;)

"<1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. Nxe5 Nc6> Black evidently believes in the principle of quick development, and even neglects to take White's e-pawn, in order to gain time. <4. Nxc6 dxc6 5. d3 Bc5 6. Bg5> A mistake; he ought to guard against the threatened 6...Ng4 with 6. Be2. Now he is overtaken by a catastrophe.

  FSR: <whiteshark> Nice idea! Wish I'd tried that. I don't think I've ever managed to pull off Legal's Mate.

  FSR: I played it again in this game, although White held out a lot longer:

  perfidious: <FSR>, the star of today's game was definitely not White's light-squared bishop--then for good measure, he decided to immure one of his rooks while never developing the other!
