Notes on chess in Chicago.
"After the match, Karpov himself identified one of the Cook County detainees as the most distinguished competitor of both sides, having won both of his games – including one in just three moves." Now that is gifted. Not quite unprecedented, I suppose. http://bit.ly/10HjPJt 1.e4 e5 2.f4 Bc5 3.fxe5?? Qh4+ 0-1 is one of the more plausible ways.
My favorite is 1.e4 e5 2.Qh5 Ke7 3.Qxe5#
I once asked Bernard Parham if he knew the worst response to his 2.Qh5. To my amazement, he suggested 2...Qh4?? Of course, the correct answer to my query has been known since the immortal Schiller-Pack, 1969. http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1371171
