Sam. the fact that a variant 'suffers from a 1st move mating threat' is
of no consequence. In Teutonic Chess this is no problem at all. It is
advantageous to the opponent should white threaten mate in the opening.
This form of analysis is too simplistic. It makes an amateurish impression
to list which variants suffer from a 1st move mating threat.
