Jul-02-11  Oceanlake: White was playing with a handicap: His King Knight was nailed to g1.
Jul-02-11  YoungEd: Agreed; after 5. ♘f3 White should have been fine. Nice mate, though!
Jul-02-11  CapablancaFan122: Uhh.. What a mess of an opening. White seemed to be in all sorts of troubles by move 5.

  Phony Benoni: Reminds me of that famous trap in the Englund Gambit: <1.d4 e5 2.dxe5 Qe7 3.Bf4 Qb4+ 4.Bd2 Qxb2 5.Bc3 Bb4 6.Qd2 Bxc3 7.Qxc3 Qc1#>

I agree with the general condemnation of 5.Bd2. Oh--for anyone baffled by the pun, it's an American expression. If a person seems to be particulary nasty or "mean", they are called "A Meanie". Probably not the way Black's name is pronounced, of coruse, but it describes his play well enough.

  al wazir: Boy, I would have had a hard time resisting 7...Qe4+.
Jul-02-11  CapablancaFan122: <Phony Benoni> It fits the pun perfectly. I am assuming Mr. Amini is Arabic, so I think his last name is pronounced "oh-mean-ee".
Jul-02-11  BiteByBits: seems so suddenly white is in trouble..actually, it's because after white takes the pawn...2. fxe5, he doesnt develop his kingside at all, except to open the f-file for the black bishop and the 4th rank for the black queen to go to h4 and then take d4 pawn..
Jul-02-11  rilkefan: What the heck is the idea behind 5.Bd2? If it was to play the worst move on the board, why not g4 or Ba6?

  An Englishman: Good Evening: 2...Bc5? should have led to a quick defeat (4.Nf3 reserves the possibility of e2-e4), but truly the winner of most chess games is the player who makes the second to last mistake.

  Nightsurfer: It is amazing to see that 2. ... Bc5?!?! - instead of the more common 2. ... d6 - can work in FROM's Gambit ... sometimes! Full of surprises, that's chess!
Jul-02-11  sfm: Hmm, let me see, I don't recall a GM Schomann - no, he isn't? Ah! He may have made a mistake here and there?! But he should have tried 8.Qf3,Qxb2 9.Bc4 with fun!
Jul-02-11  psmith: This is really a comedy of errors.

2... Bc5? is a poor move.

White is simply better after 3. Nf3 Nc6 4. e3 d5 5. d4.

After 3. d4? Black should have played 3...Qh4+ equalizing.

After almost any sensible White 5th move (such as Nf3) Black has very little for his pawn. But even 5. Bd2?! is perhaps not so terrible!

7. g3?! should lose.But Black has to show something for his sacrifice after 7. Ke2!? It is not so obvious as all that how to continue the attack. Fritz 5.32 led me to the following fantastical continuation -- 7...Bxd4 8. Nc3 Qf2+ 9. Kd3 Bxe5 10. Nf3 d6 11. Be3 (trapping the Queen) Bf5+ 12. Ne4 Bxe4+ 13. Kxe4 Nf6+ 14. Kd3 Ng4 15. Bxf2 Nxf2+ 16. Kd2 Nxd1 17. Rxd1 Improvements?

After 7. g3, it seems 7...Qe4+ and 8...Qxh1 is the best reply.

In the game continuation 7...Qxd4, <sfm>'s suggestion of 8. Qf3! Qxb2 9. Bc4 is better -- it yields a complicated position after 9...Qxe5+ 10. Qxe2 Nxe2. Black has three pawns for his piece, with unbalanced but roughly even prospects.

After 8. Qe2? White is finally really lost. But 9. Bc3 only makes matters worse.

(Analysis aided by Fritz 5.32.)

Jul-02-11  psmith: By the way: "a comedy of errors" describes most of my games, other than the ones I just plain lose to better players.

  Once: In "A Yellow Submarine" the baddies were the Blue Meanies, which was supposedly a reference to the police.

Liverpudlians (aka scousers) have long had a difficult relationship with the police.

Q. What do you call a scouser in a four bedroomed house?

A. A baregler. (And yes the misspelling is deliberate - try saying it)

Q. What do you call a scouser in a suit?

A. The accused.

  perfidious: <psmith: By the way: "a comedy of errors" describes most of my games, other than the ones I just plain lose to better players.>

In recent weeks, I've played through some of my old games (mid 1980s vintage) against master-level players, intending to submit them to CG.

Trouble was, when I reviewed them for the first time in many a moon, I realised very shortly that they were, in some cases, really wretchedly played-in one particular game, my 2350-rated opponent's play wasn't the standard of a 2000 player having a bad day.

  kevin86: A neat trap! A brilliant epaulette-type mate in eleven moves!
Jul-02-11  Ferro: OF COURSE
Jul-02-11  lemaire90: I never could figure out how to play the Bird's, and this game convinces me to never try it ! Considering that the h4-e1 diagonal is open, shouldn't white develop his knig's knight on moves 4 or 5 instead of the e pawn and the dark square bishop ?
Jul-02-11  Ferro: A TRAP
Jul-02-11  Ferro: MUCHA TRAMPA
Jul-02-11  Ferro: Yo hubiera dado un gañazon al cazafantasmas, por ejemplo 0-0

  Chessmensch: White as an adult plays chess the way I did as a kid in camp. I guess that's a compliment. :-)
Jul-02-11  David2009: Brilliantly original Black second move! Respect! Hey it's high summer - who needs soundness?

"Planten un Blomen, open air casual 2007". Now this is the sort of festival we need near me!

<UTCAA> recommends Nf3 at move X: agreed but then there would be no story.

<Once> Heard these when I worked in Bootle. Guess who told me them? Yup -scousers!
