Jul-21-14  notyetagm: <waustad: Rapport won with a mate in 5 in the first round of the Politiken Cup. Here is an ephemeral link:>

Egads, it's not a <MATE IN 5>, it's a mate *on* move 5(!).

My first chess teacher was an advocate of the <BUDAPEST GAMBIT> with Black. He was *always* trying to get this mate with reversed colors whenever he had to play a fish.

  FSR: <Wavy> I take it you're referring to his immortal five-move loss to Rapport. Sure there are.
Jul-22-14  notyetagm: <ketchuplover: OMG!!>

This debacle is in the CG.COM database now:

R Rapport vs T Rogers, 2014

Jul-22-14  Rookiepawn: Do you ALL have to come here and remind the poor guy about his blunder?

Wait... Why do I came here...?

Jul-22-14  AsosLight: Someone even went as far as analyzing the game! :P
Jul-22-14  Captain Hindsight: <AsosLight> That's why he is <notyetagm>. ;)
Jul-22-14  notyetagm: <Captain Hindsight: <AsosLight> That's why he is <notyetagm>. ;)>

This is a well-known trap that you need to know.

My first teacher used to set this trap with reversed colors against fish by playing the <BUDAPEST GAMBIT> and you would be amazed how often they lost to ... ♘g8-f6, ... ♘f6-g4, ... ♕d8-e7, ... ♘g4xe5, ... ♘c6x♘e5, ... ♘e5-d3#!. :-)

Jul-22-14  Rookiepawn: <notyetagm: <Rookiepawn: ... Wait... Why do I came here...?> ROFLMAO>

Funny thing is I really didn't remember, I was smoking some aromatic herbs so both sentences describe my train of thought. My English also got even funnier than usual...

Jul-24-14  ColeTrane: medicinal herbs vs. rec herbs ... why did someone annotate this???
Jul-29-14  Karpova: Tim L Rogers, number 158 on the seeding list, finished the Politiken Cup 2014 on shared place 31-60 with 6.5/10 (+6 -3 =1) after winning the last 4 games (rating average of his opponents: 2009 Elo).
