    I can't believe I fell for this opening...fortunately I still managed to win, but overall a humbling experience (even at my level...)

    I would like to use this game in chess classes if I may. I will just say it is a game I found on the internet or something like that. Students are always so worried about material, and this is a great example of a player fighting on and succeeding dispite the "disadvantage."

    Use for a class, for a laugh, whatever... I thought it was quite funny.

    for move 18w - i think I would have pushed the pawn forward to c7.. putting black king in check, and attacking the rook..

    Afte 16.. Ba5 17. Qg8 wins, but this is a good example of what happens if you go off with a couple pieces and forget about the rest.

    There were a couple of stupid moves at the beginning on my part. I've replayed this game at home over and over to try and understand what the h-e-double hockey sticks i was thinking...luckily for me, the other guy didn't do any of the things that would have saved his behind either...

    1. e4 e5
    2. Qd1h5 g6???? (should have been Qf6)
    3 through 5 are nothing but dodging bullets...
    6. ... Nc6???? (indescribable lack of awareness)
    7. ... Qe7 (suddenly realised what was happening)
    8. it sort of got better from here...a little.

    2. ... Nc6 is better than Qf6.

    can you explain? (not meant rude, just curious.)
    It seemed to me, after going through the game a few times that
    2. ... Qf6
    would have rendered this 'scholar's mate' totally useless (this name i learned after looking it up in a book.)

    But Qf6 isn't a good developing move and Nc6 is. After 3. Bf4 you can play g6 and later fianchetto with Bg7.

    The queen shouldn't be developed so early as it can be attacked to gain tempo. Note this is just a rule of thumb.

    2. Nf6 is also playable.

    After 3. Qxe .. Be7 the exposed Q is going to be vigorously attacked and white will have more than enough compensation for the pawn.
