|Jun-09-13|| ||morfishine: Its notes like these that enrich chess!
Technically, the game label "The Pipe Game" is no more a pun than "The Gold Piece Game", or "The Evergreen" or "The Immortal Game"
However the title "Burn Fiddles While Marshall Roams"...Now thats a pun worthy of a game like this
|Jun-09-13|| ||erimiro1: A good idea for a "Mr. Bean" scene :-)|
|Jun-09-13|| ||pumping707: Wao! 9ice annoatation + a good game....poor Burn could not light the pipe on time! Lol|
|Jun-09-13|| ||SuperPatzer77: <Morfishine> LOL LOL|
I assume that Amos Burn inhaled the tobacco smoke in his pipe too much while he was taking this game too seriously. As the game ended, his pipe went out!!
<Morfishine> Why don't we buy pipe and smoke the pipes together? It's just like Sherlock Holmes usually did.
Emmanuel Lasker loved smoking a cigar while playing chess.
|Jun-09-13|| ||PawnSac: Burns had no clue..
it was Marshall on the Patio with the Pipe.
The annotations were better than the game! lol
Burns and his pipe,
Lasker and his cigar,
all these old-timer GM's would have to go into retirement under modern rules,
smoking not allowed in the tournament halls. They would lose on time from frequent intermissions to run outside and light up. hehe
|Jun-09-13|| ||PawnSac: <Penguincw: Oh wow. Not much analysis in this game, more of what Burn was doing.>|
yes and since it is GOTD on Sunday, June 9, 2013, it makes for perfect Sunday AM entertainment.
Good call CG !
|Jun-09-13|| ||perfidious: <vinidivici>: For another classic, see
Nimzowitsch vs Systemsson, 1927.|
|Jun-09-13|| ||Snehalshekatkar: What a story!!|
|Jun-09-13|| ||oeelizondo: This great game can be found in Marshall's book "My Fifty Years of Chess" along with many others!|
|Jun-09-13|| ||playground player: Marshall's play-by-play is hilarious!
Is there any chess master today who can write funny stuff like that?
|Jun-09-13|| ||Cemoblanca: I learned so much from this game:
First of all, the pipe must burn before the game, whatever the cost!
Secondly, if you cannot handle a pipe, then stop it (for once)! ;)
Really enjoyed the annotations! Wonderful! :)
|Jun-09-13|| ||offramp: I've read 'em but I still don't get it.|
|Jun-09-13|| ||RookFile: Black would have gotten a decent game with 8...Nxd5. If you're going to go with the formation where black prefers exd5, the bishop is actually better posted on e6 rather than b7.|
|Jun-09-13|| ||catlover: Burns thought he could handle Marshall...it was just a pipe dream.|
|Jun-09-13|| ||offramp: I still don't get it.|
|Jun-09-13|| ||dbrenner23: Entertaining & informative! OK, it's either pipe smoking, or chess for me. But never both at the same time -- If I ever do take up pipe smoking!|
|Jun-10-13|| ||kevin86: I guess Burn was poor at multi-tasking|
|Jun-10-13|| ||morfishine: <SuperPatzer77> I can't take credit for this gem of a pun...<hesyrett> made reference to this back in 2008:|
Marshall vs Burn, 1900
|Jun-10-13|| ||Phony Benoni: And the game was GOTD back on 8/19/2005 with the same pun. Some games deserve repeats.|

|Aug-23-13|| ||sfm: <vinidivici: the best thing is Marshall's annotation... best i've ever read in chess annotation in my life.>
From a certain angle, I absolutely agree.|
|Jul-15-14|| ||DanielBryant: Even if they did allow smoking in tournament halls these days, I don't smoke, so I suppose the closest I will ever come to the sensation is savoring the first few sips of my black coffee as I settle down for a long game.|
(Incidentally, I used to know a player who genuinely believed caffeine should be banned from chess tournaments as a stimulant, and he was passionate about it.)
|Jan-25-15|| ||Madjesoomalops: @ DanielBryant
Why should stimulants be banned? I prefer Jon Speelman: ´If any product exists that enhances chessplaying performance, its use should be compulsory.´
|Jan-25-15|| ||tamar: Further stipulate that in the case of Jon Speelman, the use of hair products should be compulsory.|
|Nov-15-15|| ||Domdaniel: Ceci n'est pas une pipe.|
|Feb-11-18|| ||Grandma Sturleigh: <<morfishine> However the title "Burn Fiddles While Marshall Roams"...Now thats a pun worthy of a game like this>|
I would have gone with "Going for the burn", since that applies to <both> players.
