Jan-24-13  YoungEd: Until just now, this was the only two-move game without kibitzing!
Jan-27-13  TheTamale: <YoungEd>: Just too many complexities to analyze, I suppose.

  FSR: Very aggressive play by White, a sort of Bird-Keres Attack. Black's passive 1...e6!? seems to have lulled White into complacency.
Mar-07-17  paavoh: Material for a Guess-the-Move game, perhaps?
Mar-07-17  catlover: Skrypin's aggressive play landed him in the "Fool's Mate" club.

Jun-24-17  Lossmaster: White goes for an innovative move transposition from L Darling vs R Wood, 1983.
Jun-20-19  sea7kenp: Oh no! Black moved his Queen too early. :-D
