I just read the notes to the game. The Elephant theme running through was good.
You missed a chance to mention Dumbo and 4.Be2.
I find RHP too 'clunky' and slow in displaying games on my kit. so I copy
the PGN, paste in ChessPad and delete the notes. I always delete notes,
I'll go back and see what is written after a particular move if I need to.
I don't look at notes to games in books. I go though the main game first,
then do it again looking at what has been said or what we are told to look at.
Someone put me onto this years ago. I think it helps. Not too sure.
As I said it's an OK opening and often throws White on the back foot.
Levy called it a joke opening (but admits he also lost ot it.)
I cannot recall losing playing it but I recall a possiblle missed win where
I took a perpetual instead. (I think that was an Elelphant....I'll need to check.)
I hate postions like that. I've sacced the house and suddenly there is a perpetual.
You feel in your bones there is a win but you cannot see it because that
poxy perpetual is sitting there and ...tick...tick....tick...tick.
'a perpetual Geoff, take the perpetual and be thankful'....tick...tick...tick....
You get all in quandry. Perpetuals and ticking clocks, I hate them.
A few times I've knocked back a perpetual and lost, on one brilliant
occassion I went for a perpetual and won! (v an IM no less.)
