    It's a book line in The Fred (1...f5 and 2...Kf7).

    Never played the Fred. I have played the Fox Defense and Attack f3 or f6 , Kf2 or Kf7, from set piece. It was fun and different. You know me, pretty much the same repertoire for practical play, but I enjoy the learning experience in being forced to play something else. 😕

    Hi S.G.

    Well done. I knew you could not resist a challenge.

    Saw this (or something very like it in an old magazine) it's not the exact position.

    White to King King Drop and Play

    Place the White King anywhere on the board so that even with best play
    Whiter cannot checkmate Black with his next move. (easy - make one harder.)

    An illegal square is my first choice. 🙂

    But I can also place wK@g4.

    Didn't you lose the game last time you did that? 😵

    (Not that I am any better. I lost a similar challenge after calling someone out in a forum.)

    Yes, I lost it, but not in the opening. We were heading into an interesting endgame with 4 connected passers (mine) against a N (his), when I left my Q en prise; shirt happens.

    Am I willing to try it again? Well, as Schopenhauer said, "the fruit of life is experience, not happiness."

    Against the Fred, allowing an endgame is losing the opening. 😛
