Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-07-09  KingG: Unbelievable that a 2100 player can play such a bad opening.
Feb-07-09  Karpova: Andras Bacsi's rating dropped constantly to 1905 and he didn't play in FIDE rated events since April 2005.

Feb-07-09  KingG: That's quite a drop. I wonder if it had something to do with his openings?

Looking at his other games in the database, he seemed to have a few problems there. For example, he had another debacle in the game J E Koch vs A Bacsi, 2001, although there it was a blunder that I suppose could happen to anyone on a bad day, whereas I think it's pretty inexcusable in this day and age to be play moves like 4...Bf5 in such a well known opening when you are rated 2100+. Or at the very least, if you are going to play them, you should know how to limit the damage, and not play moves like 6...b6? and 7...g6??.

Aug-03-10  jrichman38: I love when people fall for this trap. I beat an IM in a blitz game in 7 moves with it.
