    Is 1. g4 e5 2. g4 a good opening?
    I always seem to lose when I play it.

    Yeah it's brilliant. Please play it against me in a rated game.

    nybble , try not to leave you king that exposed so early. maybe try 1. g3 2. Bg2 or something like that. My favorite is 1. c4 2. knb1- c3

    I guess I'm a few bits short of a byte.

    Nybble: Is this some sort of a joke? You actually play 1. g4 followed by 2. f3. That opening has a name it's called the fools opening. You also have quite a few games that are resigned before any moves are made and others that are resigned after 1 or 2 moves. What's up with that?

    Somebody else please take a look at Nybble's games and tell me if this is some kind of a joke.

    Here's a classic. Maybe Michael Boyd should annotate this for his website:

    Game 2157965

    EDIT: I'm pretty sure this is a joke. Be careful Nybble, you might run afoul of rule 3 (a) or 3(c)

    Which one is the one about having multiple accounts?

    idk, i said 3(b) because the idea of an engine choosing those moves is hilarious.

    Actually, around here what helps is that people yell at you for using too much slang. I don't care what people say, Bowmann is a force for good, or at least for grammar.
