Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-14-06  Kwesi: After 3...Bg4?, blacks defence went South.
Dec-03-07  PhilFeeley: It's the same sort of criticism (minus the pun) Fishcer made of Morphy vs Duke Karl / Count Isouard, 1858.
Feb-03-08  Necessary Truths: This is the only game listed for either of these players.

Is one of them a master? If not, then this game doesn't really belong here.

Ditto! Any moron knows that after 2.Bc4 Black's correct move is 2...e6. It puts a stop to any tactical combinations on f7 and very soon White's Bishop at c4 is going to come under attack. Also, by moving his Bishop to c4 prematurely(prior to having more info. from Black's position)he has moved the Bishop to square where it may not belong. He has violated the opening principle of developing his Knights first. In addition, Black has several transpositions into other openings that are bad variations for White. One example is Black can transpose into a variation of the Sicilian Najdorf that is bad for White.
