Feb-27-06  Mating Net: 1.e4 is a good move, but come on!
Feb-27-06  devilwolfdog: Looks like black is in Zugzwang to me.
Feb-28-06  Spohn: This was just played so there should be an explanation somewhere...
Sep-05-06  hidude: e4 is just too immensely strong
Sep-05-06  GeauxCool: LOL! What's going on here? This is a terrible entry, even got a "Boo" from MCO.
Sep-05-06  The Backward Pawn: Do I smell a puzzle of the day?

White to play and win.

1. ?

Sep-05-06  russep: Such an amazing game
May-23-07  Sleeping kitten: According to Breyer, Black is already better : «After 1.e4, White's game is in its throes». Another example of the ultimate chess blunder : resigning in a winning position!

Mar-03-10  antharis: Another example that Fischer's quote "best by test" for the move 1. e4 is simply true...
