catmoon - I don't have an FIDE rating, no.

1. e4 e5
2. Nf3
Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things

Hey Dan, I wasn't gloating!! It's just that u didn't seem to be so generous when we played, a few years ago. :) But yeah, it's high time for a rematch...

Does this opening have a name? 3 Knights or something? It's been a long time....

I think it's Petrov, but it might've transposed to three knights in the current position, I am very rusty myself. Google it, I say!

PS In (serious) response to your earlier question, I don't think have a rating anymore. I used to play a fair bit and played two or three tournaments but the last one was over 10 years ago. Since then I have probably played less than half a dozen games in total.

After the first 2 moves it is Petrov's Defence, after 3. Nc3 it is "Russian-Three Knights Game" - First time I've played it.

That can't be right

The game says e4 e5

Petrov is e4 e6 right?
