While testing my GUI earlier today, I played a couple of FRC blitz
games.  The following game was embarassing, but amusing:

[Event "?"]
[Site "?"]
[Date "2005.10.30"]
[Round "?"]
[White "Tord Romstad"]
[Black "Glaurung Mainz"]
[Result "0-1"]
[SetUp "1"]
[FEN "brnbkqnr/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/BRNBKQNR w HBhb - 0 1"]

1. b3 e6 2. c4 b5 3. cxb5 Be4 4. d3 Qb4+ 0-1

[D]1rnbk1nr/p1pp1ppp/4p3/1P6/1q2b3/1P1P4/P3PPPP/BRNBKQNR w KQkq -
White is mate after 5. Bc3 Qxc3#

Is this some sort of record, or have some of you managed to lose
even more quickly against your computer?
