Hello all, I would like to begin by thanking the players of the games included for providing something instructive, and for playing the aforementioned games. Any way to Buisiness. First a game and some principles that can be applied.

Great material for an opening book.
yeah, the purpose was to have some fun with writing an article for the BC, on 4/20
the most awesome thing in chess is for a super GM to play a bongcloud... I'd like to see the other's expression after that! Seriously, imagine Aronian sprining this on Kramnik in their match
Pawns are baby queens when on the seventh. LOL Hilarious.
This was a recent game played between me and gravitymagnet OTB(of course I won't reveal his real name unless he allows it...).
We both made inaccurate moves, but that was because we were playing blitz(3 minutes) and we were both not used to the timing.
well played, helltank, that was rather entertaining, not much I noticed, here is a short analysis
Yes, I am very proud of Qe8. An oft-forgotten Bongcloud Principle is that the BACK RANK IS EVERYTHING! If the opponent has more control of the back rank than you do, then he can confidently march his king up and sacrifice material to break up any blockades.
Early Bongcloud practitioners:
yeah example one of the OP
This is fantastic and hilarious.
As a historical sidenote, that picture was taken just after the London Bongcloud tournament, known colloquially as the London Cloud(not to be confused with the London System in the Bongcloud, which is an opening).
Edward Buries, the inventor of the London System, is in the picture(top row, third from left)-an odd coincidence.
and Lenny Bongcloud's Great Grandfather (Roger Bongcloud III, simply known by his opponents as trey), inventer of the triple cloud complex (1.e4 e5 2. f4 d5 3. d4 f5 4. Ke2), is bottom row second from the left
That was a great tournoment, featuring the tallent of Bonglekhine for the first time
