The word is derived from the Malay and Indonesian languages meaning person of the forest and originally referred to forest dwelling people and not the ape.

Actually orangutans belong in the 'Ape' family, along with humans. 😊

Hi all

I recommend the following annotation to be checked out and feedback given to the game annotator who is: Earl of Norfolk

Game quotation:

Monkeying around with the Orangutan.

Game introduction:

I generally have good results against the Orangutan Opening (1.b4), but in this game I come close to losing. A Queen sacrifice is then needed just to obtain a draw.

Game conclusions:

Even in so-called "quiet" openings, one has to be on the look-out for tactical possibilities. White's slow, quiet buildup almost won him the game.
