Straight up the chimney

The phenomenon of beginners moving their rook pawns in the opening is pretty well known. The Ian Rout theory of left handers moving the pawn on that side of the board has been observed on a number of occasions, by me, but h4 is often followed up with a4 as well.
The following game is both an example, and a warning. In all honesty it isn't the type of game I normally put on my blog, but it did have one other point of interest. After I had won a couople of pieces, I wasn't really surprised when my opponent played Ke2. Of course Bd2 is the right move, but when you are first taught chess, "you have to get out of check" is often heard as "you have to move your king out of check". And once the king went to e2, it had to go to e3, then e4 before getting mated on e5.

As claimed by Stanford Medical, It is really the one and ONLY reason women in this country get to live 10 years more and weigh 19 KG less than us.

(Just so you know, it has absolutely NOTHING to do with genetics or some hard exercise and absolutely EVERYTHING related to "how" they eat.)

P.S, What I said is "HOW", not "WHAT"...
