    Did this ever happen to you?



    Sadly, this isn't the first time I got my Queen and King sides confused during the opening, but this was probably the most dramatic.

    I get very confused when people play my defenses against me. Last night a guy played the Petrosian KID against me. He pushed his a pawn, which is theory I know, and I said to myself "why is this idiot pushing a flank pawn?" I played the French for most of my games last year. One of my friends who always plays Sicilians played the French on me and I seriously thought he was playing the Pirc.

    Last night I had a dream. There was a Beno, then it became a QGD, then it beacme a KID and then it became QG. Then I woke up and thank feck looked at my skin and saw I was black..... oops white.

    That's absolute quality. This site needs a few more people who can laugh at themselves.

    I can't deny it. So I won't say anything.

    A Damiano without the King's knight... now there's a sight.

    No, I haven't done that yet. Given my track record, I probably will sooner or later.

    Well not me personally (yet) but 1.e4 e5 2.f4 f6?! I've found it being played
    over 270 times on here most of whcih were quick wins for White.
    (most of the Black wins were when White timed out in winning positions,
    one of the exception is the 2nd game.)

    Follows the same path as the OP's game.

    White nicks the h8 Rook with his Queen, blunders a away a piece then
    allows the Queen to be trapped on h8.

    As White, I have won some games like that. I don't assume, however,
    that Black has "confused the King's Gambit with the Queen's Gambit".
    A few players (e.g. Mikhail Chigorin) have played Damiano Defence on purpose.

    Thank you for finding the other games!! I should have given up my rook and fought it out. Trying to save the rook, I lost my king.
