A King Hunt starting on move 4, the hunt ends on move 10.

It appears 4...h6 is a TN (!) Though I'd bet it has popped up in a few blitz games.

It has been known since 1898 (and possibly before) that you should not take the e-pawn.

O Smith vs A Bej, 1898

Have recently been slaughtering my students for throwing in needless and thoughtless a6, h6, a3 and h3.

What do I do here. h6 is bad....but a3 is checkmate.


Feb-02-21  miletrajkovski: 3 ... h6 ?? is not TN because this move has previously been played in two chess games in two normal tournaments: Benavides Castelano 1728-Orts Gonzalez Rafael 1700, B00, Barcelona Catalunya r.3 11.10.2014 1-0 and Saric Luka 1841-Caleta Josip B00 Sveti Vid CC Klis r.5 15.1.2012 0.5-0.5, but the white in the first mentioned played 4.Ne5 ?! and after 4 ... e6 followed very poorly 5.Nxf7 ?? and came to a completely lost position, but thanks to the severe oversight (blunder)of the queen of black and white still won the party, while in the second mentioned white played 4.Nc3 !? with a small but insufficient advantage for the white and the game ended in a draw, so that my 4.Bxf7!! + is actually TN and practical gossip of the whole variant of the black started with 3 ... h6 ?? because black is under direct checkmate attack and loses a lot of material so white has a clearly winning position.!
