Yeah, I came across that one a few times in my novice days. Just as bad is 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 f6?? 3. Nxe5! fxe5 Qh5+ etc... So basically f3 or f6 isn't the best idea in the opening. Smile

Oh yeah. lol My bad. Anyway, the less said about these 'openings' (I use the word openings very loosely) the better.
