Nov-28-06  Rubenus: Stupid opening, very stupid blunder.
It are both idiots.
Nov-28-06  Resignation Trap: <Rubenus> My shortest win in a tournament also went this way, but neither my opponent nor I was an idiot.
Mar-06-07  ianD: There is no excuse for this!
Vodka opening perhaps!

  al wazir: I am a little surprised (well, only a little) that the Opening Explorer doesn't have 3...Bf8, the move I play.
May-06-12  kramputz: Waste of space.
May-06-12  DanielBryant: Proof that there's hope for any of us at the board no matter the rating. I remember when I started out playing, how nervous I would get if there was a (gasp) 1900 across from me.

  perfidious: This gem reminds me of a correspondence game a friend from long ago (Tony Albano) played.

Tony opened 1.d4 and received his opponent's first move, 1....g6, stating that if '2. any Bg7'. Tony responded 2.Bh6 and got the second card: resigns.

In this game, Black took a little longer to meet his fate.

  sea7kenp: The problem with 3 ... Nc6, is wrong Knight. 3 ... Nf6 looks reasonable.
