Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-21-03  mineralfellow: Why doesn't 7...Qd6 save the game?
Feb-21-03  mdorothy: After 8. Qxf7+ Kd8 9. Qe6 black is down a bishop.
Dec-09-03  popski: Huh, this game was surprise for black! :)
Mar-07-04  haha: What a plan !!

  InspiredByMorphy: Its not foolproof! 6.Be6 saves the game. Why would black play 3.exf3? Its not even an attempt to exploit a weakness of the f pawn obstructing f3 for the knight. 3.e5 is better.
Sep-30-04  Knight13: 5. Bg4 is a blunder I would say.
Feb-16-05  schnarre: Almost reminds me of a Scholar's Mate.
Jun-10-05  Wudgie: Wow! Making mental note to be careful playing against strange openings. :)
Jun-10-05  aw1988: Oof. Brutal.
Jan-11-06  schnarre: <Wudgie> Aye! Not being careful gets one punished (check out the links I posted on the BEER page--Nov. 4th if I recall correctly).

<aw1988> Adds insult to injury on a grand scale!

Mar-16-06  uzeromay: Should Black play 2...dxe4? Is White's gambit 3. Nc3 sound? After 3... e5, can white safely re-capture the pawn with 4. fe?
Mar-18-06  plaridel: Why pin the Knight on f3? Perhaps the quiet e6 would suffice. As he is behind in development he thinks he has to develop his Bishop..but g4 and e6 look bad.
Aug-20-07  Whitehat1963: I love stuff like this. Hilarious! You can just see Melchior's face. He barely adjusted his seat and he's got to get up in disgust already.

  technical draw: Melchior was one of the Magi. He came bearing gifts.
Jan-03-09  WhiteRook48: what about 1. f3 e5 2. Kf2? That's bound to be a weird opening
Apr-22-09  YoungEd: Yes, if Gaspar and Balthazar had been there to help him, he would have lasted longer than 7 moves!
Jul-13-11  Tigranny: Why not 6...Be6?
