    Game 6671393

    Gosh, I wouldn't know what to tell you: the play seems pretty unkempt on both sides.

    What prompted you to play the move 17. Ba6+?

    Maybe it was feeling the after effects of not playing it on move 15

    Looking at this game is good for me I can see my sloppy play.
    Really there was no good reason for that move. I think I was trying to push him out of the corner.

    As Dale pointed out, you could have ended the game with Ba6 on move 15. So your idea was a little late.

    Probably you got a little distracted there by the pressure he was placing on your f2 square. Just remember to look over the whole board for the big picture and opportunities.

    That trap features possibly the best game on RHP.

    This is absolutely brilliant. If this does not bring a smile to your
    face then check your pulse, you may be dead.

    The only other game that has cracked me up like this was that one
    where the game had been going on for over two years when one of
    the players missed a mate in one.

    Imagine that. looking at the same game for over two years and
    missing a mate in one. I still chuckle about that even to this day.

    This one is in the same category and turned me into a
    gibbering wreck for about 5 minutes when I first saw it.

    It's amazing that moving wee wooden men over a chequered
    board can instill such mirth.

    The scene.
    White sets the trap - Black falls into it but White needs to be nudged
    to win the Black Queen. And then....

    if you want the complete Game 5040009.

    I just show the first 12 moves. The Golden Dozen.

    LMAO! That's possibly the greatest game ever played.
