Strange that Earle is playing the White Lodge, and Cooper the Black Lodge.

I looked through the GNUchess file of various openings, and found none that
had P-K4 responded to with P-Q4.  Relieving, in a way, that Cooper doesn't
play like GNUchess.  Perhaps I should now find those games that start with
1. P-Q4, P-Q4; 2. P-K4, if there are any, in the GNUchess book.

Looks like Earle is opening with a Gambit of some sort, by leaving his KP
unprotected.  I expect that Cooper, even though I don't know whether it's
the best thing to do or not, will Decline.  I imagine that capturing pieces
in a game with Earle could have quite violent correlations in the real world.
