1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 Nf6 4. O-O Ng4!!

The Fishing Pole, Humanity's Greatest Invention

5. h3 h5!!  6. c3 a6!!  7. Ba4 Bc5!!  8. d4 Ba7!!

Peekaboo Bishop, Hyper-Pole

9. hxg4??

Always a huge mistake, even when it wins

Hyper-Pole pause
31 seconds

9 ...  hxg4!!

Take your pick,
Opening the Gates of Hell ( Vance Aandahl )
or
Opening the Door to Death
( Devon Wall )

The h-file is open

10. Ng5 d6!!

played 3 times before by the great Polish Correspondence Master Krol Wladyslaw,
the true Father of the Fishing Pole, who was playing it in correspondence Chess
before Jack Young even thought up the name.
10 ... b5?  played once by me

the QB is unleashed

11. d5??

23 seconds spent

The Hyper-Pole is specifically designed to handle this move well.
Krol had to handle the tougher  11 Bb3!  3 times in postal Chess

11 ...  b5!!  12. dxc6??

29 seconds and 3 wasted tempi spent

12 ... bxa4!!  13. Qxa4??

10 seconds spent

13 ... f6!!

I honor the Great Rock, Ireland, home to centuries of my ancestors, by striving
for an Irish Pawn Chain ( tripled pawns ). Rybka is forever urging me to get
thee hence to the h-file with ... Qf6!!!  but somehow I always get distracted.
I should have known better, the GreatOwl's last move seemed awfully weak.

14. Qc4??

8 seconds spent

14 ...  fxg5!!

Crushing because of ... Qd8-f6-h6-h1+:g2


15. Be3 Qf6!!

Crushing


16. Re1!   Only Move

16 ...  Be6!!!

16 ... B:e3!!!!!  or  Qh6!!!!  are even better

17. Qd3!  Qh6!!

17 ... B:e3!!!  is better again


18. Kf1!  Only Move   Qh1+!!

18 ... B:e3!!!  is better again because of
19 Q:e3??   Bc4+!!  mating  or
18 ... B:e3!!!  19 R:e3   Qh1+!!  20  Ke2  Qc1!!
is deadly



19. Ke2!  Qxg2!!  20. Nd2??  g3!!

Crushing because of  ... Bg4+  or ... gf  or ... B:e3  or ... Q:f2+
depending on cicumstances


21. Bxa7  Bg4+!!  22. Ke3??  Qxf2#

{White checkmated} 0-1

Final times

GreatOwl      17 seconds

B-Wall      1:29

As usual a quick checkmate was preceded by multiple missed opportunities on
my side. The Fishing Pole does not require any degree of accuracy, you just have
to be brave enough to be there - it's like hooking up a a Rave.
