    I often spend 10 minutes or so a day on the Games Explorer picking
    openings and variations at random just to what happens.

    (Explorer needs updating - petition started in Site Ideas please add a name)

    Sometimes I unearth a mini masterpiece.

    Why do you think White plays 1.e4 2.Bc4 3.Qh5?

    What possible plan or idea do they have in mind?

    I used to think it was going for the Scholars mate on f7.
    I'm wrong. (play out the whole game - it's only 11 moves).

    That Knight fork pattern brought back a wee memory.
    This one is 8 moves featuring yours truly as Black.
