Mar-30-10  Hortensius: Great way to gain time
Mar-30-10  ounos: By the way, surprizingly the game's opening is correctly categorized. Huh!?
Mar-30-10  drpoundsign: how is THIS the Sicilian?! It looks like the "Dancing Drunken Knights!"
Mar-30-10  atakantmac: it teaches you how to change your knights' place

  kevin86: Is there a waltz in chess? I this game there was (or was it a tangle?).
Mar-30-10  swordfish: What earthly point is there in playing like this in a serious tournament (in an offhand game, sure)?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Once: Wouldn't life be unbearably dull if everything had to be serious? This was a bit of fun, a whimsy, a joke, a little emoticon on a wooden battlefield.

And why not? As long as they don't make a habit of it....

Mar-30-10  Intrepid Spiff: What the ?!

  Annie K.: <Once> Lehtinen had two of these games, actually :)

A Lehtinen vs J Sietio, 1996

User: AnttiLehtinen, probably the real player, explained the story behind this game back on page 1.

Humourless twit - have you got dead owl stuffed up your rear end?

Mar-30-10  MarbleSkull: I think black's first big mistake is 5. ...Nd5? Much better was 5. ...Nc6. Could someone run that through Rybka for me?
Aug-13-10  cuppajoe: A question on a fine point of the rules: if they had played the first ten moves again would that be a draw by threefold repetition (the opening position having appeared thrice in the game) or does that not count because the KKt and QKt have switched places?
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: It would be threefold repetition.
Aug-02-11  atarw: i bet this game was fixed, same with the hungarian players game. what other logical explanation is there?
Aug-18-15  prithvimothi: Hahahahaha
Premium Chessgames Member
  beenthere240: There's a simple explanation for the first 10 moves. The knights had started out on the wrong squares! It was essential for the King-side knight to move to b1 and the Queen-side knight to move to g1 (and the same for the black knights). Once this was accomplished, the game could begin in earnest.
Mar-02-18  morfishine: Somebody should've haltered this game.
Mar-02-18  morfishine: If an opponent tried this against me, I'd bridle with anger.
