Games without names would be awful. It's all part of the fun.
Also who cares, most here have a nic. Nobody knows who you are.
Think of the games history? In the olden days the BCM never used to
publish the names of the losers so you got Mr Staunton v Mr B_________
And years later when they are compiling databases you get all these
games being left out or credited to Unknown or Anon.
The games history is important, we look at these games to see and learn from
the blunders of our ancestors.
If friend rookorbycrook had known his history then perhaps he would not have
fallen for a trap over 100 years old.
The Trap even has it's own name 'The Lasker Trap'
and it has caught
61 players....sorrry rookorbycrook....62 players on here and has featured in
many an RHP thread.
(BTW Tygert good notes - excellent notes, but the black pawn on d4 is not an outpost.
It's a pawn on d4. An outpost is a vacant central square usually in your
opponents half of the board which is protected by a pawn and cannot be
attacked by an enemy pawns. By central I mean the rectangle b3 - g6.
By chance in the thread I posted 'Annoying Win', posted before I read this
you will see I mention the outpost on e3 not calling it an outpost till it was
protected by a pawn.
Just thought I'd clear that up before someone else did.)
So names are in.
