The second game is a loss where I was masterly destroyed trying a Grand Prix attack. I should be more carefully in my opening selection playing a player with the handle

    Yikes! Tough loss.

    BTW, I will posting a game soon where I played a tournament and the player tried to open with a King's Gambit. . .I destroyed him in 23 moves [grin].

    I look forward to seeing it. Surely it was due to superior play by black and not the fault of the opening. My guess would be you accepted and played the modern or the fischer defense. 1...e5 can 1 e4 be far behind?????????????/
