He wrote the book on this opening. « Fearless Chess
There's letters seal'd, and my two schoolfellows,
Whom I will trust as I will adders fang'd—
They bear the mandate, they must sweep my way
And marshal me to knavery. Let it work;
For 'tis the sport to have the enginer
Hoist with his own petard, an't shall go hard
But I will delve one yard below their mines
And blow them at the moon.

This blog and game was pointed out to me by Atomic Patzer at a local chess quad event in New Jersey in June 2009. Atomic mentioned that the amateur player upset a well known New Jersey master , which was posted on his blog "Fearless Chess". The NM played his favorite opening as black and unfortunately for him, he lost in an upset.
