Aug-16-06  Manic: wow great play by one of the best at creating blockades.
Jul-09-07  sanyas: Normally the fish in simuls lose games horrifically in a tactical way. This one lost it horiffically in a purely strategic way.
Dec-07-09  MaczynskiPratten: This is a hilarious game. Could this be the world's worst ever bad Bishop? The only other contender I can think of is Chigorin vs Steinitz, 1889 - but that one is allowed to escape!

  Phony Benoni: Well, here's another pretty bad bishop:
F Bohatirchuk vs K Vygodchikov, 1923

This one isn't from a real master level game, but it's hard to imagine a worse bishop:

G Bailey vs E Fischvogt, 1999

Managing to get two bad bishops is an impressive accomplishment.

  tamar: BP should hire Nimzo. He fitted the TopHat perfectly.
