|Jul-06-06|| ||WannaBe: Very pretty game. Wish I can play game(s) like this.|
|Jul-06-06|| ||Longbrow: I would have liked to seen Elijah Williams play through the 1855-1875 chess years.|
|Jul-06-06|| ||Longbrow: <wannabe> Yes it is a pretty game. Can't say I pull games like this out of my back pocket(or any for that matter)like this.|
|Jul-06-06|| ||Confuse: cooly declining the rook for a checkmate. cool : )|
|Jul-06-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: Nice game, and a clever little checkmate at the end!|
Can somebody please explain the pun? Thanks.

Weebles were childrens toys that were advertized with the catchy phrase "Weebles wobble but they don't fall down".
|Jul-06-06|| ||keypusher: This is the first game from Wyvill and Williams' semifinal match from the London tournament. The winner was the first to win four games. Williams won the first three, but Wyvill won the following four!|
This earned Wyvill a spot in the finals against the great Adolf Anderssen, who had knocked out Staunton in the other semifinal. Wyvill lost +2-4=1 -- a better score than Staunton achieved against the same opponent.
|Jul-06-06|| ||eunuch lust: It's a play on the words/phrase "wibble wobble", which means to be a little shaky.|
|Jul-06-06|| ||EinZweiDrei: Even though the opening made me want to cry [because I so fear what I cannot begin to understand], a well-played game.|
|Jul-06-06|| ||xKinGKooLx: Wow, what a game! I love closed games, and I love games that are strange like this. Great sacs by white as well. However, I think that black weakened his position too much in the opening by playing both e6 and g6.|

I had a Weeble Wobble when I was a child. It is a little known fact that their inventor was once on Countdown.

Only one? I had the whole set, including a playground roundabout and a swing. Brilliant.

We were working class.

Don't worry about understanding the opening, it's rubbish.
|Jul-06-06|| ||dakgootje: <Only one? I had the whole set, including a playground roundabout and a swing.

|Jul-06-06|| ||kevin86: Amazing! Black has 6 moves to get out of check-all of which are met by immediate mate! Both checking pieces are under fire-but both cannot be taken at once. The bishop,in fact is attacked four ways!|

You'd have been crucified in the playground. And quite rightly, too.
|Jul-06-06|| ||weisyschwarz: <CG.com> your puns are not only wobbling, but they do fall down. I might have done something with Marmaduke.|
|Jul-06-06|| ||apawnandafool: <I might have done something with Marmaduke> i admit mine's pretty bad, but how about, elijah opens the door?|
