But in the last tournament of Bent Larsen,he anwered 1.e4 with the immortal 1-a5 :)...diffficult to find a worser opening move than that.Guess Bent just wanted to have some fun.

  FSR: One of these players eventually became world champion. Guess which one.
May-23-20  jith1207: And, the other, it looks like, was picked off from the Norwegian 7-Eleven to get all players aligned for even draws to conduct the Championship.
Apr-07-21  kereru: He probably touched the a-pawn by accident
