Any tips for playing the bird?

    Don't make any sudden movements, and don't spread your fingers too far apart, lest they look like twigs or worms.

    don't

    @chesshole:

             "you should use 2...g5?! for notation"

         You'll have to take that up with Hobbs, whoever he was......Wink.

    To be fair, though, I did say 1...g5 was dubious, and I'm certainly not recommending it. Unless you're in a hurry and want to get the game over with quick!

    ?! means a dubious move.  !? means a surprising move

    What does the infinity symbol mean? (8 turned sideways)  i was reading a book and it had this after a move.  Don't know if it was a typo or not.

    make sure you don't make fun of their teeth and give them enough time for a tea break before rematching them.

    Aha! This is the famous 'Grand Old Ah Prix' I've been hearing about?

    Bless you, Unmaster

    to be fair though it's not that funny.  If you could have made all the word actual words, even if you used a French word since the name is French, it would have been funnier.  Instead you use 'Ah' which isn't even a word.  It's like you really had to force the pun.  Anybody can make puns if they use sounds instead of words.

    Your first move also weakens the h4-e1 diagonal.   Is this REALLY the

    way you want to start a chess game?

    YES

    some weird people also play something called the "dutch", it also moves the f-pawn in the first move, but as black. isn't that crazy?

    I wasn't aware that there was a code of practice for writing puns! Do you have a university degree in this subject? Perhaps you are a member of a secret punning society? Who made you an authority on humor? You seem to have the mentality of a critic. As we all know, critics are like chessholes, everyone has to have one.

    Please allow me to correct you again.  I believe you meant to say 'opinions are like chessholes, everyone has to have one'  It wouldn't make sense to 'have a critic' would it?  It's ok, I am sure you will make sense next time.
