    Don't make any sudden movements, and don't spread your fingers too far apart, lest they look like twigs or worms.

    @chesshole:

             "you should use 2...g5?! for notation"

         You'll have to take that up with Hobbs, whoever he was......Wink.

    To be fair, though, I did say 1...g5 was dubious, and I'm certainly not recommending it. Unless you're in a hurry and want to get the game over with quick!

    ?! means a dubious move.  !? means a surprising move

    What does the infinity symbol mean? (8 turned sideways)  i was reading a book and it had this after a move.  Don't know if it was a typo or not.

    make sure you don't make fun of their teeth and give them enough time for a tea break before rematching them.

    to be fair though it's not that funny.  If you could have made all the word actual words, even if you used a French word since the name is French, it would have been funnier.  Instead you use 'Ah' which isn't even a word.  It's like you really had to force the pun.  Anybody can make puns if they use sounds instead of words.

    Your first move also weakens the h4-e1 diagonal.   Is this REALLY the

    way you want to start a chess game?

    YES

    some weird people also play something called the "dutch", it also moves the f-pawn in the first move, but as black. isn't that crazy?

    I wasn't aware that there was a code of practice for writing puns! Do you have a university degree in this subject? Perhaps you are a member of a secret punning society? Who made you an authority on humor? You seem to have the mentality of a critic. As we all know, critics are like chessholes, everyone has to have one.

    Please allow me to correct you again.  I believe you meant to say 'opinions are like chessholes, everyone has to have one'  It wouldn't make sense to 'have a critic' would it?  It's ok, I am sure you will make sense next time.
