Sorry for the radio silence. Things aren’t going all that well with my father. The antipsychotics work, but he is extremely weak physically now, either as a side effect or due to some other cause. We have reduced the antipsychotics (after consultation with the psychiatrist) and now we are on allert if he again starts to have the paranoid delusions so we can eventually increase the dosage to find one that does not cripple him physically yet still works. If his weakness is a side effect of the antipsychotics, which is not entirely sure.
I am constantly on alert and I cannot find the motivation to write. I have managed to do some work in the garden nd the workshoppe, but when I sit at the computer, the only thing that I am capable of is playing a few chess games. For some reason, chess helps me to relax.
So in the meantime, here is the shortest chess game that I have ever played as black. I was really surprised at my opponent’s moves. One does not need a computer for analysis.
He had to have been trying to lose. No one would have done K-K2 even as a bad move, probably not even a player who had just learned the game.

That was quick.
Check in the fewest number of moves?
I’m confused if you are playing black, why would you be surprised by whites moves?
Good to hear from you, even if the update is simply that you are tired and your Dad needs a lot of your energy right now.
Sorry your Dad is still giving you cause to worry, glad you can get out in the grden and into the workshop now, and I hope that your Dad’s weakness is related to the anti-psychotics.

Your opponent obviously hated his king. Bloody anti-monarchist.
We are pulling for you and your father.
The obvious explanation is that a member of your crew, having gone into hiding, has reprogrammed your computer to provide false evidence that you killed them. The bad chess playing is merely an unintentional side effect of the reprogramming.
