d6 g6 Robatsch Rats & Modern Snipers & Misfits
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

The initial collection was originally compiled by IMlday, entitled "Hot Rats" demonstrating mostly Black wins. Thank you IMlday!

Fredthebear intends to rid his cargo ships of rats and pterodactyls into this collection as he comes across the grimy critters. (Rats are not on Fredthebear's menu.) IMlday's hot collection will remain unaltered a top the list. Of course, as readers know by now, Fredthebear cross-contaminates his full-sized collections with co-workers, neighbors, country cousins, wedding crashers, used car salesmen, ex-ball players, part-time play-by-play announcers, cooks, waiters, waitresses, bartenders, gardeners, golfers, geeks, substitute teachers, comedians, musicians, disco dancers, rodeo clowns, imposters, tour guides, models, make-up artists, photographers, writers, directors, roadies, truckers, bikers, hikers, kayakers, sailors, storm chasers, dog trainers, cat groomers, dairy farmers, bankers, bakers, candlestick makers, artists, sculptors, weavers, whatevers, machinists, mechanics, secret agents, free agents, psychologists, physical therapists, deacons, doppelgangers, preachers, pastors, rabbis, rent-a-cops, retired circus acts, vendors, vampires, trash collectors, taxi drivers, roofers, dry wallers, insurance examiners, grandmothers and pops, celebrities, fans, chess masters and wannabees. Welcome one and all; we'll find a place for you. However, please point out any members of the lying, scheming, manipulating national media who dare to be present so they can be taken out back for a personal roasting.

The one and only Mikhail Tal is expected to make an appearance, too.

* FYI:
- The Rat (Canadian name for 1...g6 2...Bg7)
- The Pterodactyl (Canadian name for The Rat with 3...c5) This is according to: Page 181 of "The Complete Chess Addict" by Mike Fox and Richard James, Faber & Faber, Printed in Great Britain 1987.

Canadian master and writer Johnathan Berry lists The Rat as 1...g6 2...d6 3...Bg7 on Page 54 of "The Pocket Guide to Chess," Master Point Press, Toronto, Canada 2005.
