On Saturday I bequeathed to the world an unstoppable anti-French Defense weapon, guaranteed to win every time.* That line begins 1.e4 e6 2.Be2, but tonight, in a 1-minute game, I was faced with a terrible question. What do you do if your wily opponent plays something other than 1...e6?
After careful thought, we at Monokroussos Labs, Inc., found a solution to at least one of the alternative cases. Against 1.e4 c5, we play 2.Be2 followed by 3.Bf3 anyway! You can see for yourselves what happened here.**
* Guarantee not valid in the United States or its territories. Or in the surrounding areas. Or basically anywhere on Earth, or any other place people might play chess.
** Yes, I really did play that game, and decided on 2.Be2 just for the amusement value of building on the humorous anti-French post.
