|Several games have
been played on "The Black Hole", ( 10-14 22-17 9-13) an
opening played by mutual consent only, as a draw is not
known, at this time. |
You may request to play ANY opening, and if agreed, then get it on! They DO count in your official results, if you greed to play it. You may DECLINE to play any opening, not officially approved. But in the spirit of competition, we suggest a request to play these openings, be accepted. These games go a long way, to determine the soundness of the opening.
Several of our players are playing such things as "The Rattlesnake", "The Cheetah," "The Black Hole," "The Shark"--all thought to lose! But they have new moves they want to try, and that's what it's all about.
Nemesis has trimmed AL Lyman 2-1.
Questions for Lyman
Q; What happened?
A: He chose the Black Hole and won the white side with an attack that needs completely re-evaluated. I won the white side with a different attack.
Q: Will the 5-9 defense draw that op?
Q: You lost another game. What happened?
A: I had 2 moves for the defense and though both were ok. I chose the wrong one, as he had a move, later, that surprised me.
Q: Uh-huh. What is your opinion of Nemesis?
A: He's a beast. You better have your ducks in a row, when you play that program.
