Chess training game between glee and dead cat


This is a chess game based on this thread:

https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb...1#post21996789

Please use that thread for all comments - it'll be clearer to follow the game if this thread is literally just the moves.

We can post the position after each move as well.

Once Dead Cat has chosen colour, the game will start!

Here's http://'https://www.apronus.com/ches...te&n=0&f=' the start position

I didn't get that chess position reference correct - sorry!
I'll look back at another thread...

Well, we can probably manage without the board for at least the first couple of moves (that is to say, I can - glee could manage without the board for the whole game and still beat me handily, if this were a competitive match!).

1. e4
