Sep-02-09  TheTamale: Lesson: the Borg defense is just too powerful to survive by way of ordinary developing moves.
Sep-02-09  ounos: Do you consider 2. h4 as an "ordinary developing move"?
Sep-02-09  AnalyzeThis: It was generous of white to castle into mate on the queenside.
Sep-02-09  crwynn: the question is whether Bc4 and e5 are "ordinary developing moves" - the answer being no. 2.h4 was fine though maybe not best.
Sep-03-09  TheTamale: <ounos: Do you consider 2. h4 as an "ordinary developing move"?>

Perhaps not ordinary, but in response to g5 it is certainly a developing move.

Sep-04-09  ounos: I don't say h4 was a bad move. But the conclusion was not accurate :)
Apr-15-12  Whitehat1963: Assimilated!
