    How come you haven't got any games going?

    I guess he made his one move, and realized there was no hope.

    1.d3 g5 2.Bxg5 Bg7 3.Bxe7 Bxb2 4.Bxd8 Bxa1 5.Bxc7 seems like a promising try, but I'm not able to find a clear win for Black here.

    Tries:
    5...Bc3!? 6.Nxc3 d5 7.Nxd5
    5...Be5!? 6.Bxb8!
    5...Bd4!? 6.Bxb8 Bxf2 7.Kxf2

    But then he should have one finished game, and I can't find any game, probably it's a non-public game...

    Games can be deleted before 3 moves are completed

    7........Nf6 looks promising.

    I rejected that because after Nxf6, White can next take Ke8 or Ph7, both of which are protected.

    I think Kas actually played that in one game against Deep Thought.
    I think it was a draw, not sure though.

    Nope, actually he is quite strong.
