    I would't call it a joke, Fischer almost (yes I know, almost doesn't really count, but hey if it were someone about 100 points lower it would have won) lost to it, but it is not the opening that wins, but the moves that the player plays.

    The finish is nice, but a completely one-sided game with a predicable win for white after the nonsense black played in this game.

    LOL Pfen is awesome! I love how he just calls things like they are. The Latvian is just bad for black period. still some nice tactics at the end.. The Latvian is great to study as white though so you can learn how to punish such overt aggression by black. It is also interesting to compare why  1 e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 f5  is played by top players while 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 f5 is not.
