    D'oh! There must be something wrong with your pgn. I've been trying to conform it, but it's not working.

    3.Ng8 is certainly an impossible move. As is 10.Qe3d2 [the Q is not on e3!].

    (The only thing you had wrong on your pgn was move 3.)

    Good game!

    Nice played game there. I have the same line but the checkmate came one move faster. Here comes traxler game with more direct 7... Qh4

    fixed

    So called Bird's grob (In croatian "grob" means "grave" ). How convenient.

    does anyone seriously play f4.. and g4..?? in my opinion not the best of openings.. kind of sucks!
    there is howeve a game played be Meek which quite effectively use f4 & g4 and win in the opening bt only after only worse play by black...
    i'll post the game asap

    If combined, no.

    Separated 1. f4 or 1. g4 can be quite interesting weapons (but, especially with 1. g4 you should know what are you doing.)

    1.e4;e5 2.f4;exf5 3.Nf3;d5 4Nc3;dxe4 5.Nxe4;Bg4 6.Qe2;Bxf3 7.Nf6# !!

    Kings gambit accepted which has gone wrong... horribly..
    Obviously Bxf3 is the clincher
    Hip hooray Meek is the man

    Obviously my memory failed me, this is the game I have referred to, but obviously Meek did not play F4 and g4 .. but still a very cool game

    That's not fair! A guy who's 32-2 let's you mate him in 2 moves?? Why doesn't anyone let me do that to them?? And, you're a good enough player that you don't need that kind of help.

    You should have offered a draw after his second move. (j/k)

    Do you still get rating points for that?
