    What a funny game. Take it in turn to give away Queens huh?

    is this Abbazia Defense actually playable? after the queen comes out, the knight develops with tempo, it doesn't look sound at all...

    nice game though. a pity he fell for the one move trap at the end...but game was over already, i think, when he snatched the pawn...

    Actually I didn't give my Queen away... his bishop is pinned.

    Your right I was probably shocked by the preceding moves. Right from 4 ..Qxd5 then 6 ..c6 the game looked like a help-eat-one-another-up. Black did not appear to be trying very hard in the game, you weren't playing both sides of the game to illustrate your "hacking, sacking and trapping"?

    No... I'd be incapable of that. It is hard to come up with wrong moves purposefully although it is more than easy enough on accident. It was somewhat quicker time controls 15/0 but it was just a skittles game. 4...Qxd5 was quite a shock to me the first time my opponent played it too. I would play 4...Nf6 there but thats just me.
