I was inspired by this article...https://www.chess.com/article/view/is-this-the-future-of-chess and so I decided to play one of the greatest moves in all of chess history...1.a4!
I had a chess teacher who told me he was personally offended that I played this move.  His reverse psychology was successful. I knew I could do better. So lets try this again.  We now know at the very least its a theoretical draw.


You can't lose! Post your 1.a4 wins here.


I should mention that I did lose after I  posted this blog.  Bxh2+ Something to watch out for if you do play this opening. I was overconfident because I escaped the first game. I saw the sacrifice but I didn't think he could get away with it.
