The Bongcloud strikes again!

    The Bongcloud is a formidable weapon against an unprepared player.  In this game, White shows the decisiveness of the Queen's pawn Bongcloud, a reversed variation of Lenny's Black repertoire.

    Greatest annotations I've ever read.  I love the Alekhine-Tartakower comment; I'm still laughing over it!  Great post; thanks!

    I recently played a game in the Bongcloud.  It didn't have the satisfying king march to victory, but it was a strategic victory.

    Not enough exclamation points after 7. Kd3, that was the kind of move that would have players from throughout the room leaving their boards to gather around.

    A mighty king indeed.  As Steinitz said "the king is a fighting piece!"

    The bongcloud is essentially just an accelerated endgame with a fierce attack from a centralized king before the opponent even realizes the endgame has begun.

    Well played sir, well played.

     As Steinitz was quoted as saying,

    "Men play the Ruy Lopez.  Real men play the King's Gambit.  Champions play the Bongcloud."  So true!

    You would have made Steinitz proud with this!

    Is the Bongcloud a joke? 

    e4 e5 Ke2?? Nf6! Nc3 d5! and black gets an advantage.

    Does it look like a joke to you?
