U.S. Open Round 3: You've heard of the Accelerated Dragon... meet the Decelerated Czech Benoni? It's slower than the world's slowest opening. (The Czech Benoni typically begins 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 e5: in my game, Black took two moves to play ...e5.)

Seriously, I had no idea what to do with the extra tempo, and my play was not too impressive.  But a win is a win....
