Mar-08-04  haha: white played while, and black mistake on move 27.
Sep-10-04  athyn: An interesting way to begin the game.
Mar-26-05  falphin: B5!? That had to throw, even Basman off.
May-04-06  DutchDunce: I love it. A game between two of the most unorthodox openers in the history of the game. FWIW, Rogers just opened a game with a4 in the 4NCL, drawing against some dude named Christopher Ward.
May-04-06  who: <DutchDunce> That reminds me of Alekhine's comment on someone who plays 1.b4. "He need not necessarily be at a disadvantage thereby, but is not that altogether too small a satisfaction for the first player?"
