    Let's see how stupid we can make these openings!

    Soon after I started playing chess, I focused my huge store of chess knowledge, pawn structure and deep strategical considerations into creating my masterpiece, my magnum opus:the magnificent Helltank Gambit.

    Only in normal chess. In Bongcloud chess the Open Cloud(1. e4 e5 2.Ke2) is played in 54% of games.

    That is, assuming one would play the Bongcloud in normal chess... Otherwise any irrational, illogical move would do...

    Seriously.

    So don't open or read them jempty.  We're not going to give up our fun just to avoid hurting your eyes with meanless combinations.

    Now I'm expecting some rich guy to pay a GM to have him play the Helltank Gambit. Of course he'll have to pay even the opponent to lose, in order to demonstrate that the gambit is sound.

    I would say that Damiano defense would be among the worst...
    Damiano himself discredited the opening and in a sick twist of fate it was named after him...

     

    1.)e4 , e5

    2.)Nf3 , f6...

    Wow. Chess players really are the most humourless people in the world.
