He's playing a game with someone. This is the opening they are using. His opponent will be back in a couple days to begin play from this point.
He he. We posted at the same time. You are a bit kinder than I am.

I have a book on the St George (Birmingham Defense or The Incorrect Opening which says it all......) by Basman. He was one of those who liked obscure and most likely unsound openings. I would echo the thoughts of most that it is a "surprise tactic" opening. IMiles used it in a game against Karpov.

It is........wild to say the least.

Here is a very nice site that shows that game with comments.....it is very amusing. :)
