1. g4 { Notes by Raymond Keene. I have never been quite sure whether this is the worst opening move or whether that dubious title belongs to 1 f3. At least after 1 f3 d5 White can play 2 f4, or after 1 f3 e5 2 e4 Bc5 3 f4!?, but 1 g4 gives no such opportunity. One of the best ways to manhandle this miserable move is to play a sharp gambit against it.} 1...d5 2. h3 e5 3. Bg2 c6 4. d4 e4 5. c4 Bd6 6. Nc3 Ne7 {! A powerful gambit, which casts doubt on White's whole opening.} 7. g5 {In his book The Killer Grob, Basman recommends instead accepting the gambit with 7 Qb3 O-O 8 Bg5 f6 9 cxd5 cxd5 10 Nxd5 Be6 11 Nxe7+ Qxe7 12 d5, but then 12...Bf7 13 Be3 Na6 or 13...Nd7 leaves White virtually lost, since he will automatically lose the pawn on d5 and he cannot meanwhile develop his kingside.} 7...Be6 8. h4 Nf5 9. Bh3 {Not 9 e3 Nxh4 10 Rxh4 Qxg5 winning.} 9...O-O 10. cxd5 cxd5 11. Nxd5 {Or 11 Bxf5 Bxf5 12 Nxd5 Qa5+ 13 Nc3 Nc6 with a decisive lead in development.} 11...Ng3 {Basman completely overlooked this. If 12 fxg3 Bxg3+ and 13...Bxd5, or 12 Bxe6 Nxh1 13 Bh3 Bh2! stabbing White's knights in the back. The rest is a slaughter.} 12. Nf6+ gxf6 13. fxg3 Bxg3+ 14. Kf1 Nc6 15. Be3 Nb4 16. Kg2 Nd5 17. Kxg3 Nxe3 18. Qd2 Qd6+ 19. Kf2 Qf4+ 20. Nf3 exf3 {21 Qxe3 Qxh4+ is hopeless for White.} 0-1
