Aug-25-07  Morphyisgod: whites first 5 moves were of pawns, Welling defies the principals of opening play and still wins
Aug-25-07  Holden: 1.h3, 2.a3, and a win in under 20 moves. That had to be embarrassing for black.

You've gotta love Welling's games.

Jan-30-09  YoungEd: An odd game, to be sure! What is Black's mistake, that he could lose a miniature after 1. h3, 2. a3, as <Holden> said? My guess is 5. ...a5. White's b4 move really didn't threaten much. Black probably should have gone about normal development of with ♗e7 and O-O.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: 3...Nf6 might be best. After 4.cxd5,Nxd5, White has a Sicilian Defense with an extra tempo, but he already wasted it on h3. You may also find more "creepy crawly" games in the oeuvre of Richard Lichtenscheidt.
Nov-26-09  Zumpawe: This is going to be a puzzle! Nice match, I like it!
Apr-11-11  rich187113: black played the opening very badly.
May-04-14  GumboGambit: After the second set of moves, the board resembles a smiley face.
