  tpstar: Brutal crush. White falls victim to not one, but two Discovery tactics along the fourth rank. Picturesque finish, yet 21. Kd3 might have held out a smidgen longer.

NGMR-tpstar (FICS 4/8/06): 1. e3 e5 2. Qf3!? Nf6 3. Bc4!? d5 4. Bb3 c6 5. c4 e4 6. Qf4!? Bd6 7. Qg5?! (7. Qh4 h6 8. f4) h6 8. Qxg7 Rh7

Jul-06-06  YouRang: This game is a fine example of losing the opening, beginning with the weak 1. e3 and the one-man attack, 2. Bb5+?

Look at the position after 5 moves -- already, white is way behind! :-)

Jan-26-19  GumboGambit: Looks like White just wanted to get into the record books of executing the earliest check of all time Chess game history. i suppose they can never take that away from him, nor the trip to Bermuda.
