4th FiNet Chess960 Open (2005 Mainz)
The start position was RKRBNQBN (SP941) and the initial moves were 1.e4 e5 2.Nd3 Ng6 3.f4 Bf6. Black's last move led directly to disaster, but the preceding moves 1...e5 and 2...Ng6 were probably not the best either. After 1.e4, the CCRL engines (see the 'Resources' link in the sidebar) prefer 1...f5 and 1...Ng6. Is the position after 1...e5 definitely lost? Perhaps the losing move was 2...Ng6; more analysis required.
