My Little Idiot Chess Game

I tried "Lichess" on my PC. I spent 20 years on ICC. My rating is 2002 on, but I felt like checking out something new. In recent years my online blitz play suffered from bad mouse issues. No matter what mice I try, they malfunction with my PC.

My Lichess experience began with my attempt to play 1.e4. A mouse slip gave me 1.e3, though I tried to push it to e4. My opponent played 1...d6, and 2.e4 instantly appeared as my pre-move! Our Delayed Sicilian was like an English. Still, I've enjoyed Lichess so far.

I told my wife that I started playing Lichess, but I didn't know what the "LI" stands for. Immediately she said, "Little Idiot!" I said I began my first game with 1.e3. "I told you it stands for Little Idiot," she added. Like an idiot, I won a rook instead of a queen.

See my 140 game book: Rare First Moves - Second Edition.
