Aug-19-05  Autoreparaturwerkbau: 4...d6 gets my vote for the 5th worst opening blunder ever.
Aug-19-05  aw1988: Ouch. I wouldn't disagree...
Aug-19-05  Assassinater: Oh no. There've been multitude of other doozies that could probably be classified as worse...

  Phony Benoni: It seems odd to me that people should criticize the inclusion of grandmaster draws in the database, but blithely accept idiocies like this game. GDs at least generally follow correct, sound principles of play, whereas this game merely shows a couple of awful blunders. I imagine White is not proud of it--and has no reason to be--while Black is merely embarrassed. Outside of its extreme brevity there is no reason for its inclusion, and, frankly, I don't think even that is sufficient.

Also, I'm sure it's been played before. Black doesn't sound like an original player.

Sep-19-07  Necessary Truths: "Dekking" a Copier... how many office workers have fantasied about doing just that.
