  technical draw: This "game" wasted a minute and a half of what's left of my life.
Dec-12-03  Spitecheck: Yes it's all well known theory :)....


You must have a slow computer tech, did it take that long for it to load :).

This "game" for want of a better term was so poor the chess piece's were frowning agape at each other.

Hey, I'm liking this sledging thing to much.

  Benzol: <Spitecheck> I'm pretty sure your in Oz, so I wanted to ask you if you have any access to some Australian chess games by local players past and present. You know like CJS Purdy, Garry Koshnitsky, Mike Woodhams, Ian Rogers, Darryl Johannsen etc. If so could you get them loaded up with the PGN facility?
Dec-12-03  Spitecheck: I might do somewhere in magazines, newspaper's and stuff, in fact I used to have Purdy's (finished by his son) book on the road to the ICC world championship. Regrettably sold if for a profit (It only cost me a coin!), it had a copy of Purdy's notes to his game with umm Napolitano I think, Fritz would have been with the mass of descriptive bit code.

I don't know about the upload utility I used it last time and that game didn't turn up so I guess I did it wrong. Might try it again with a short game.

I've met both Rogers and Johansen, nice guys both of em, I even had the audacity to ask Johansen "what happens to him" as I pointed at one of his Rooks :). Basically the only two GMs (OTB) Australia has ever produced. Back in the 70's we used to claim Walter Browne for whatever reason LOL.

  Benzol: I can remember when Walter Shaun Browne played for Australia. I've actually posted a couple of games of Purdy's using the PGN facility, but I feel like a voice in the wilderness. If you check out Purdy's profile you'll see some more games there than the're were before. I'm also pushing up Ortvin Sarapu's profile but I don't have access to that many Australian players games.

For using the PGN facility I just followed the example given below the space provided and hand typed the game scores, so I know it does work. was a little tardy in one instance so you may find that the games you submitted earlier have eventually been posted.

Mar-07-04  haha: It's blitz, people make mistake in blitz.
Mar-07-04  WMD: A spooky coincidence because about ten minutes before seeing this game I had been using the opening explorer function to check out a sub-variation of the Bishop's Opening (1. e4 e5 2.Bc4 Nc6 3.d3 Na5 4.Bxf7+ Kxf7 5. Qh5+) and had discovered the game K Langeweg vs E Ten Haaf, 1983 where Black fell in similar manner.
Sep-17-04  solstys: 6...Bf6 is impossible because the bishop is pinned.
Sep-17-04  Knight13: What if 6... f6 ? That might help.
Feb-16-05  schnarre: <Knight13> 6...f6 allows 7. Qd5! & this brings in White's Bishop & Knight into play to chase Black's to-be-exposed King.
Feb-22-05  aw1988: Oh dear. I suppose we could write this one off as black having too much to drink.
Feb-23-05  schnarre: <aw1988> Sounds good to me!
Premium Chessgames Member
  InspiredByMorphy: Black needs to look at some games by Morphy. Development is the farthest thing on the mind, instead focusing on the greedy 3. ...Bxh4 . By the fourth move black has touched the bishop 3 times.
Apr-15-05  schnarre: Using any piece too many times in a row is counter-productive!
Apr-15-05  Milo: In my opinion, you guys are crazy. This is a great game, at least for blitz. Give me some alternatives for black, starting at move four. 3...Bxh4 is at very least quite dangerous (if not actually losing.)
Apr-15-05  aw1988: Sure, what about 4...Bf6.
Premium Chessgames Member
  InspiredByMorphy: <aw1988> 4. ...Bf6 was better. I like 3.Nf3 better than the text move.
Apr-19-05  schnarre: 3. Nf3 has its unique approaches & is thematic in developing a major piece agressively. The text 3. e4 seems more "orthodox" & is a strong move. As for 4... Bf6, 5. f4 followed by 6. Nf3 looks pretty good for White as well. The best shot to me looks like 4...Bxf2+ 5. Kxf2 Nf6 with a playable line for Black. <Milo> I share your sentiment regarding 3...Bxh4; 3...Nf6 looks fine, & perhaps 3...Nc6 deserves looking at!
Aug-27-05  knightfever: Why not 4...g6 ?
Jan-12-06  schnarre: <knightfever> 5. d4! looks like a good enough reason.
Aug-10-06  aazqua: This is pure garbage.
Aug-10-06  apawnandafool: <aazqua> take a look at this one: G Welling vs Kappler, 1983
Oct-25-06  rsl: That game sure improved my chess skills! Wow! That 1. h4!! really blew me away!
Jan-08-09  WhiteRook48: wow. cool game.
By the way, a potential pun would be: Black torn in Haaf.
