    Who would think that White could lose two rooks before Black loses anything?

    Hello, everyone,

    Not a very good game but interesting.

    1.d4 Nf6 2.e3 g6 3.Nf3 Bg7 4.Bd3 0-0 5.c4 d5 6.Nbd2 c6 7.b3 Qa5 8.0-0 Na6 9.a3 Qc3 10.Qc2 Qxa1 11.Bb2 Nb4 12.Qc3 Qxf1+ 13.Kxf1 Nxd3 14.Qxd3 Bf5 15.Qe2 a5 16.cxd5 cxd5 17.Qb5 Rfb8 18.a4 Bd7 19.Qc5 Bf8 20.Ne5 Be8 21.Qc1 Rc8 22.Qd1 b5 23.Nd3 bxa4 24.bxa4 Rab8 25.Qa1 Rc2 26.Ke1 Ne4 27.Nf3 Nxf2 28.Resigns

    Black is winning wholesale at the end, but I feel white had numerous opportunities to improve. It just seemed to be unusual that the first pieces to leave the board were the white rooks; does anyone know of something the same or similiar as far as exchanges?

    Take care and God Bless, Macavity

    Mac, I have not went through your game, as have not went through any game for years.

    But I was playing a top up and coming junior years ago. He had wiped out my whole queen side and me nothing I think. There were many lowly-rated spectators who were shocked when he resigned without any blood on the dancefloor.

    My opponent and myself could see that he had not yet castled and now it was my turn to wipe him out. My queen side was unimportant.

    Question Once he was bad,then he was dangerous...along came invincibility...whats next for MJ?

    At this point AC, with your continous Michael Jackson imagery...I would just like to say...

    Billie Jean is not my lover
    She's just a girl who claims that I am the one
    But the kid is not my son
    She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son

    For forty days and forty nights
    The law was on her side
    But who can stand when she's in demand
    Her schemes and plans
    'Cause we danced on the floor in the round
    So take my strong advice, just remember to think twice
    (Do think twice)

    She told me her name was Billie Jean as she caused a scene
    Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed of being the one
    Who will dance on the floor in the round

    A - hee-hee...well he makes kind of that noise,you get the picture people.

    Black may have missed one as well, 12...Qxb2 with two pieces and a rook for queen instead of two rooks for queen. However Black did not appear to have much trouble with the two rooks thanks to White's subsequent errors.

    A search for positions with queen in an opponent's corner in the first 20 moves or so might turn up other cases - I can't recall seeing one like this before.
