On December 04, 2009 Allan Bogle played The Bogle Opening against Darren Sam at Mitchell Memorial 2009.

Here at the bottom of this page, you will find games actually played by Gary Pylant on the Internet Chess Club (ICC).  Observe that you can play a Reverse Bogle Opening with Black after 1. d4 e6 2. c4 f5 in a Dutch like variation that Rubinstein liked to play with b6 and Bb7.

Gary now has a new philosophy about chess openings:  Most openings are sound if you want them to be!  If  you hate to play against a certain opening, play it yourself.
He is actually playing 1. e3 as White. He is winning a bunch of games on the ICC as JavaChessMan, who on November 20 discovers that The Bogle Opening can transpose into the Exchange Variation of the French Defence.  See this game below!

This opening should be renamed: The Bogle Opening, since Allan has played it in countless games. Well, Gary is playing it behind Allan's back...maybe it should now be called the Bogle-Pylant Opening ?!  Perhaps, it should be called Bolgemania, for it sets all kinds of trouble for Black if he doesn't pay attention to White's almost automatic opening leading sometimes to a kingside attack.
Improvements for both sides are always possible, but what is the best defence for Black?
Most good lines for Black involve forming control of the center with either 1...d5 or 1...e5.

So far, Gary  has never played The Bogle Opening in a real over-the-board game.  If you have some 1. e3 games, please
