I forgot how to play the Trompowsky and immediately overlooked the standard reply of 3.Bf4 with ...c5 instead of ...d5 !!  

I let my opponent get after my King.  I blundered a piece.  I lost.  The kid was rated around 1000 ELO

This is what happens when you go long periods of time without playing, my friends!
