  3. Chess position in the lichess sunglasses

Does anyone know if the position in the lichess sunglasses is a famous position or something? Can't let an opportune easter egg go to waste. If so where can i find out more about it?,width=650,height=650,appearanceId=551,version=1493912051.png

It looks like a weird opening. White played d3 and b3.

lol!! get a life

but i appreciate your curiosity

must be a 1.b3 opening.. now that i put some thought

what happened to whites bishop ... i managed to recreate some of it using caro-kah euwe attack prins gambit but just dont know how the bishop was lost or traded gambit

How do you know white's bishop is not on the board? You can't see the first rank.

In my database I found just one game matching this position:

It was a game played on lichess. I don't even have the source files for that design any more. So that's really all the help I can provide.
