  TheAlchemist: 7. Bc1 and 8.Nh3 were blunders. White should have continued in the spirit of the position 7.f3!! ands 8.g3!! followed by 9.h3!!. Maybe 3.Bb2 was also premature.
Jun-03-05  crankydoodle: In a vain effort to try and save them from more humility, maybe it was just a very, very long day.

(It probably got even longer after this little gem, though...)

Jul-27-05  Averageguy: How old was the white player?
Nov-12-05  cuendillar: For a moment, I thought white was Alexander Onischuk. They're closer in name than strenght though.
Nov-26-05  Chopin: If you're going to play this badly, why bother playing in a tournament.
Nov-26-05  bane77: White played like an idiot.
Feb-02-06  Whitehat1963: Hilarious! Five of white's first six moves are one square queenside pawn advances. "Uncommon Opening" doesn't even begin to characterize this one. What do you call this, the Idiot's Opening? Also happens to feature 1. a3, the Opening of the Day.
Mar-11-06  Castle In The Sky: This would make a good April Fools game of the day
Jul-28-08  ravel5184: It's like me playing other kids at my school!

  Gilmoy: I've seen Black actually finish the doubling: 1..a6 2..Ra7 3-9..b-h 10..Rah7! Stronger than those 2..Ra6 fish.
Dec-22-08  Udit Narayan: I have played against this opening as black in Yahoo 1 min bullet games.
Jan-27-09  WhiteRook48: I guess this pawn wall on the third row isn't that good
Jan-31-09  WhiteRook48: 12. d4?? is a bad novelty
Oct-09-09  WhiteRook48: it's a good thing white has no rating
Mar-15-10  waustad: The dreaded Hammerschlag, or a variant, if I recall.
Mar-15-10  markwell: Played by a child, or a cretin. Perhaps both.
Mar-16-10  cionics: I love this game! Pure genius!!!
Apr-20-10  cjgone: I wanna see a pro play this.

  OhioChessFan: Wonderful game. I am so glad I found it.
Jan-01-12  King Death: White had to play g3 and h3. He threw away three tempi with Bb2-c1 plus Nh3 and this cost him big time.
Feb-08-12  soberknight: This made me laugh.

Don't come around here no more (4. d3 Nc6)/I've given up, STOP (5. e3 f5)/I 've given up, STOP (6. f3 Bd6)/I've given up, STOP, on waiting any longer (7. g4?! Qh4+)/I've given up on this love getting stronger (8. Ke2 fg)/I don't feel you anymore (9. fg?? Bxg4+)/You darken my door (10. Nf3 Bxf3+)/Whatever you're looking for (11. Kxf3 Qh5+)/HEY! Don't come around here no more (12. Kf2 Qxd1 0-1) - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, "Don't Come Around Here No More"

  GrahamClayton: 8. ♘h3?? - how is white supposed to get all of his pawns on the third rank with the knight blocking h3? :-)
Jul-08-17  NBZ: I did like the cunning 10. Rg1 hoping for 10. ... Bxh2?? 11. Rh1! with an open file.
