    On a more serious note ............

    Players like Megabyte should be booted from the site. He continues to play this "Opening" as white and has repeatedly been mated on 2.

    He is wasting people's time and artificially raising the grades of his opponents while lowering his own. I hope he is banned from any banded tournaments.

    Send feedback, if you feel seriously about this. Don't underestimate the willingness of admins to act on it.

    Great puzzle! I was thinking "the king only has its own square and f2 so if I can get a night on d3 somehow it can be mate". I never saw the long diagonal. Great to see such subtleties arising from a typical game situation.
