...only a bit over 2 years too late - it's more commonly known as 'Suicide Chess'

Yes, I noted this possibility in my post. Anyway, the solution has been updated since then.

1.e3 wins, yeah, i think we had this ardy some time ago, sry...in view of the circumstance that this statement has to be one more big hoax in my REALLY honest opinion, i wonder if u might possibly be in relationship with "Lyudmil" (whom i learned to honor with time passing by)...let me give u this for the records: ;-)

This is not a hoax. It is about losing chess, not chess. Read carefully.

"Losing Chess" is a variation of classical "chess"...aha, thank you @sysygy (i didnt read at all, opened the site, saw the startpos and 1.e3 and left the website, ill try to be more careful next time, thx)...seems im currently on an unlucky stint on commenting things im not interested nor competent in...ill do better to concentrate on specific "chess"-problems than trying to fiddle inbetween, my apologizes...next time i read sth like "google shits" or "Loosing Chess" i simply shut up.
have fun :-)
