FORUM Game #2 (FG#2) The following initial post information is the same as for the thread called FORUM FUN GAME #1 ... where a Dutch Defense is now ongoing. This one will differ by beginning with e4. Here are the Rules thusfar, as taken from the prior thread. Please join-in and enjoy yourself! }8-) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I would like to try a out a new Forum concept here, similar to a consultation game. RULES; to be as follows:
##################

[*Foremost is to enjoy the game(s). So RULES here are guidelines we try to follow. But no penalty or negativity about any infraction or misunderstanding of them. In that case, we'll simply clarify and continue the game.]
^^
*Please DO have a board kept set-up to follow the game, if you wish to play. Thus, No "blindfold" moves, Please!
^^
*Anyone with Forum posting privleges can join at any time, but can only make moves for one side or the other; therefore must stick with the color that their first accepted move is.
^^
*When more than one player posts for the same move number, then the first legal move posted will be the accepted move in the game.
^^
*A player can post a move for his side at any point, but cannot make two consecutive moves. Some other player must make a move before the last player to post an accepted move can post another one. (At this time, Conditional Moves will not be made; but might be tried in the future sometime. Probably a later game.)
^^
* A game will be considered RESIGNED if no one posts a move within 24 hours for the side whose turn it is.
^^
[*The first player to post an accepted move for that color (excluding me) will be the Captain of that side for the game. Presently Captains have no particular duty or functions, but perhaps may if it becomes apparent that there is some need for such.]
^^
*I will serve as a REFEREE/MODERATOR in the first couple games, to make any Rules additions, as/if needed. My posts in that capacity WILL BE TYPED TOTALLY IN CAPITAL LETTERS, THUS EVERYONE ELSE IS ASKED TO REFRAIN FROM USING ALL CAPS IN THEIR POSTINGS.
{* I am also playing on the white side, but wish my own contributions to not be overly frequent. Especially since one place I'll use my own moves will be to put in some of the more obvious ones, just to help things move along. }
^^
*The format arrived at in the prior thread, for making moves, seems to be working well. So would like to use it here. Please show the move# and move you are posting in the "SUBJECT" line of your post. And then the moves leading up to that can be pasted in, with the new move shown there, giving the scoresheet of the new position.
^^


*All participant or spectators are welcome to post notes after the game. Additionally, participants may comment as the game goes on as long as the move commented upon is at least 10 moves in the past. If any move sequence given as arising from that prior move#, try to avoid coming closer than 5 moves to the present position. This is just to avoid commentary that could affect the ongoing play or strategy.
[Still, its all in fun and so if it doesn't work out well, then next time notes can be prohibited until game completion.]
^^
Any suggestions about Rules or format are most welcome.
********************************************

I will now proceed to make the first move which will start Forum Game #2 here, to be designated FG#2 . Someone please make BLACK's first reply, and we'll be started !

THE ABOVE MOVES IN THIS POST ARE SIMPLY TO PROVIDE THE EXAMPLE OF THE FORMAT FOR MOVING THAT SEEMS TO BE WORKING WELL IN THE OTHER GAME THREAD. SO IF YOU CAN FOLLOW IT, THAT IS HELPFUL FOR ORGANIZATION. BUT IF ANY PROBLEM DOING THAT, ITS OKAY, WE'LL STRAIGHTEN ANY KINKS OUT AS THEY ARISE :-) ~~~ Craig

Yes...sorry missed the post by " alberlie ".
alberlie 43 ( +1 | -1 )
LOL Bucklehead, your move is invalid too. According to the rules, you have to choose sides _and_ may not make two consecutive moves. I understand this to mean that since you made 2. ... Nf6, someone else has to make a black move before you may move 4. ... ?? again. Let someone else mess up the crucial move order in the Peterson :o))

So unlesss craig intervenes I propose to follow from this position:

1. e4 e5
2. d4 Nf6
3. dxe5
bucklehead 5 ( +1 | -1 )
oops... I concur. My ego got the best of me.

ccmcacollister 18 ( +1 | -1 )
Well .... [jEFF ... Was it a miracle !?...perhaps devine intervention yet, to keep it out of a Petroff ?! You simply must give up that opening! ... haha!~ :)) ]

LOOKS LIKE THINGS ARE BACK ON TRACK ... }8-)
loreta 6 ( +1 | -1 )
No any miracle :-) I would transfer it into Latvian or Elephant gambit...
bucklehead 22 ( +1 | -1 )
4...d5 I think I'm clear to move again. I would point out that we're not *quite* in Petrov territory, though I've found the position in some analysis of the main lines of the Symmetrical Variation of the 3 d4 Petrov.

1. e4 e5

SIGH -- And so a Petroff is born. Worse, I have fathered it :((((
But there are times ... well, what do you do?
(OK Jeff you've spurned civility and had your wicked way ... now we'll see if anyone Answers my move ... AHA. You've forgotten, it takes TWO to play here! HA
24 hours, tick tick tick ... any Petroff players out there ... ?!!! }8-)

SHOULD WE ... ALLOW DISCUSSION AFTER 5 MOVES INSTEAD OF 10?

Yes 11... Ne5 was the intention. I am terribly sorry about that. I sometimes wonder if I am name dyslextic. I some times say and write one thing when I mean something else with a firm conviction I was saying writing the thing I meant to.

hardland 7 ( +1 | -1 )
14 Nxc4 Well, joinnig with the white then

14 Nxc4 is the move
mattdw 10 ( +1 | -1 )
How was 13...Bxc4 possible? When I played the game through there wasn't a piece on c4 to be taken...
mattdw 12 ( +1 | -1 )
A quick look through whites moves would suggest that no piece was ever moved to c4 either...
mattdw 14 ( +1 | -1 )
...sorry, the knight did move there, but it moved away when 13. Nxd6 was played.
