Dear Khaled,

Earlier in the this site we had sort of explanation (or make it a special item) what the opening position of the game is. Now I have bunch of games, without knowing am I playing spanish or different sicilian variation's etc.

Please, do insert the explanation of the opening position games as earlier as it was.

Dear Intelligent
this option is still there, but because I made some changes to the ECO database, I had to delete the links between games and corresponding opening,

you will see this option again in new games

Dear Khaled,

Thank you for your quick reply, and I am glad to know that the option with that link will be a part of this site.

You are doing a great job.

I have only played one game where opponent opened with 1 g4, and it was this:

1. g4 d5
2. f3 e6
3. c3 Qh4#

I have read papers that say the Grob is good, but I've also read that it is not hard to shut down. My game here is no example of either, of course, it's just the only time I've seen someone use the opening in a real game.
