Dear friends, one does not toy with a loaded gun. I once saw a friend blow two holes in his Mom's kitchen door, unaware that the shotgun that he was toying with was loaded. In a similar vein, one does not toy with chess principles, unless of course you are an adrenalin junkie, who likes to dangle his queen in the centre like a a piece of fresh meat in shark infested waters, or to neglect development by snaffling b pawns in the opening daring your opponent also to gleefully abandon these principles and dance that merry existentialist jig to the sound of the grim reapers dirge!


Here I provide a game that I annotated, which appears to me to demonstrate the neglect of certain chess principles and please note dear friends, these are not patzers playing blitz in the park for the ultimate prize of being titled King of the Universe and a chocolate covered Snikers bar, they are 2100+ rated correspondence players with plenty of time to reflect upon the position.  Anyhow I hope you enjoy the annotations and learn something from them - kind regards Robbie.
