  Benzol: According to <iron maiden> this is the shortest correspondence game on record.

Don't let <aragorn69> see it, he'll go spare.

Feb-22-04  Benjamin Lau: Lol, how does one know it's correspondence? What does SWE mean? Sweden? Aren't correspondence games designated with corr?
Feb-22-04  ughaibu: I think the shortest correspondence game went 1.e4 b6 2.Ba6 Bb7 3.Bb7, black had written "1....b6 2.any Bb7".
Feb-22-04  drukenknight: isnt there a kasparove game like this? Except I think it starts as Alekhine defense.

This type of thing really does occur lots of times in many opening systems. That's the problem. If you ask some MCO editor about something like this they will give you the main trap and the player just loses.

So they say here is the trap it occurs in ECO code A20 Libyan countergamit, alternate line 3a, bla bla bla....

But the trap recurs and recurs in all sorts of things. So, instead of studyying the particular piece pattern/move order in your head; you ask yourself: what is important about the situation in general?

Just that if the K moves forward you have to watch for mate because he's cut off on the d1/f1 squares like an epaulette mate?

WEll I mean maybe there's more but thats like all I can remember on that...What was that Kasparov game again? COuld he have moved the K forward or not?

Feb-22-04  Benjamin Lau: ughaibu, I've heard that story before too, but I couldn't find the game in the database. I think that the concept of "anything" is too much for the viewer to handle. ;)
Feb-22-04  iron maiden: Ben, ughaibu, and others, sorry about that mixup. The more well-known Tobor vs. Stamer, 1984, was the shortest decisive correspondence game on record. What happened was that I mixed up the two games; they are both in my "What not to Do in the First Three Moves" collection. An elementary blunder. Again, I apologize for the confusion.
Apr-06-04  Vischer: White should have played 3.fxe5 and if 3...Nxe5 4.d4 looks lood.
Apr-06-04  Vischer: *good
Apr-06-04  Vischer: oh nvm theres Qh4+
Apr-28-04  ruylopez900: a coome mistake in the KGD, though usually White plays fxe5...
May-08-04  azaris: Last night I thought I'd try KG and fell into this one. Oh well, back to the books for me.
Jun-22-05  Averageguy: <Vischer> 3.fxe5 allows 3...Qh4+! 4.Ke2 Qxe4+ 5.Kf2 Bc5+ with a tremendous attack for black.

  TheAlchemist: In Serbian and Croatian "guraj" means "push" (as an order). I guess this influenced White to push his pawn to f5.
Jun-22-05  aw1988: Lol. 1. e4 b6 2. any Bb7.
Nov-11-05  hidude: <aw1988>huh?
Nov-27-05  Chopin: <Alchemist>< In Serbian and Croatian "guraj" means "push"> That's what I love about Chessgames. I'm not only learning chess but I just learnt a Croatian/Serbian word.

White was simply looking for trouble after "guraj-ing" his F pawn :)
