    Shockers. The Pits. The worst of the worst.

    They say pain shared is pain eased! I offer the following game (one of many) that illustrates why I am a doofus. Please do share, why don't you!

    There is no cure for leftism. Its infestation of the host mostly diminishes with age except in the most rabid of specimens.

    This is round 2 of the biggest tournament I had played in I had just come off a loss against eventual winner, Andrew Fitzpatrick [VIC] and was also coming back from 18 months out of the game. Any myths that absence had improved my game were quickly dispelled!!

    Now I'm never going to get a title, but I didn't think I'd ever toss off this shambles in competitive play. Enjoy a listless nothing capped off with a bishop dump at move 24!

    TIP: Rotate the board for maximum effect and an insight into a patzer's mind

    A ha! I see what you're trying to do. You want to surreptitiously obtain source material so as to provide a counterweight for JGB's upcoming opus!

    It would probably require more pages ( volumes even !! ), Axiom?

    or am I going over the top?

    I am presently trying to reconstruct a 6 move howler - which oddly I have declined to save in my database My opponent is a good friend and perhaps he will 'help me out' when I next see him. I nominate it in advance for a medal placing. Stay tuned.

    I could present a 4 move loss, from when I was a junior?

    Then again, some things are best left in childhood....

    well, mr macavity, one has to take on these types of mammoth endeavours,with a great deal of forethought......i would hesitate to 2nd guess the demanding australian chess public,suffice to say ,you are on a winner...........and keep going over the top,..we need more of that,reaching for the stars mentality here.

    Axiom, I would only be reaching for the stars wouldn't I?

    Surely I wouldn't be doing any dancing whilst there?

    i'd say just reaching for the stars is a good enough effort,...you dont want to show off
