My friend and I were bored so we decided to play a game of chess. I lost, for I have done something bad. I was a beginner, so I could not find where I went wrong.

I wanted to know what was wrong, so I asked my friend, she did not reply. I decided to sleep. Next day I saw this on my table.

1 Answer 1


The numeric parts of the respective ECO codes of these openings, when converted to letters by A→1, B→2, …, Z→26, spell out BLUNDER YOUR QUEEN. So I guess what you did wrong was to blunder your queen.
