Annual Issue - Game of the Week
Dec 31, 2016 - by Alan Lasser
 It’s time for that odd annual issue, where I give odds with the Wild Snail opening.  Get those wild snails out of the yard before they hurt somebody.  

For the benefit of the new subscribers, the Wild Snail is the name I have given to the opening where I spot my friendly club opponents four moves.  It’s not one of those domestic snails raised on a snail farm destined for the customers of fine French restaurants (although, in an interesting twist, this year I employed the Wild Snail against a player named French).  No, this snail grows naturally outdoors, and it takes a long time to go on the offensive, sneaking through the lawn to bite unsuspecting targets in the ankles.



This year a variation of the Wild Snail finally appeared in grandmaster play, the Komodo software spotted Nakamura four moves and won, you can find it on youtube.
