Well, I'm not really sure what you call that first move, but she liked the
rook, and was obviously willing to sac a pawn to get it developed quickly...

Goodness gracious--that PAWn sac is the opening of the dreaded
Cat-elan opening! Fortunately I know how to counter it--the 
King's Removal Gambit, invented by the Grandmaster Yuri Optoutovitch...

It would seem as though she really didn't approve of that move.  After a bit
of hesitantly patting the a pawn as though she were going to advance it, she
went a little crazy and wiped out the entire Queenside.  She then picked up
her remaining white knight from the BOARD (not the one on the floor mind you)
and trotted off with it.  I'm not really sure if that's legal though being
that it's basically giving her two moves in a row.  But you'll have to tell
her that if you really want her to take it back!

It would seem she never really cared for Mr. Optoutovich's strategy...

Y'know, I've heard these temperamental geniuses can be like that. High-strung, easy to set off. Bottom line, I think she realized I was on to her strategy, had a bit of a tantrum, and decided to eat that knight...maybe we should hold a "Take Back the Knight" rally (sorry, I panicked!!)
