|Jan-06-18|| ||zanzibar: <tyro> either the knight falls, or Black loses both a- and b-pawns after 47...Re8 48.Rc7.|
|Jan-06-18|| ||Tal Apprentice: Why not 47... Rb7 48.Qg3 Nf3?|
|Jan-06-18|| ||Tal Apprentice: I meant 47... Rb7 48.Qg3 Nf7.|
|Jan-06-18|| ||WorstPlayerEver: <Tal Apprentice>|
Good question! I thought that 49. f4 would do the trick, but after 49... Nh6 it's Black who is winning!
My oh my, anyway, it seems to be 49. a5
|Jan-06-18|| ||WorstPlayerEver: PS. 47... Rb7 48. Qa8 Nf7 49. Rg8
There goes my confidence; it was my first consideration!

|Jan-06-18|| ||Everett: <piltdown man: Not a lot of political correctness in this pun.>|
Thank goodness for that
|Jan-06-18|| ||thegoodanarchist: <tyro1952: I don't understand why black resigned here. What about 47 ...Re8?>|
It looks like 47...Re8 allows white to trade rooks with 48.Rc7
The resulting endgame with Q vs. R+N is hopeless against Anand.
|Jan-06-18|| ||schnarre: ...Looks like Anand was toying with his opposition here, like a cat with a mouse.|
|Jan-06-18|| ||beatgiant: <schnarre>
<cat and mouse>
Are you trying to make a pun about a computer mouse? I'm not sure if that would be PC or un-PC...
|Jan-06-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: The question is merely peripheral.|
|Jan-06-18|| ||zanzibar: Keep it up guys, and I'll have to take a bit dump right here on the screen.|
|Jan-06-18|| ||OhioChessFan: All this PC blathering.....I have it on good authority that REBEL is not one bit offended by the colloquial term "engin'".|
|Jan-06-18|| ||Annie K.: Heh. This pun is mine, and I happen to consider it one of my funniest. ;p|
Political correctness is not <always> misplaced, but it should be reserved for actual sore spots, i.e.: derogatory terms where the persecution is still present, or very recent past. The term 'injun' (which was never used "against" actual Indians like Anand, btw), represents a racial animosity so long past, that any "pc" objection to it today can only be seen as a knee-jerk reaction, not to mention a severe lack of both humor and common sense.
Having grown up (among others) on James Fenimore Cooper and Karl May, I have always had a soft spot for American Indians; :) but I have none for manifestations of hysterically oversensitive pc.
It's a joke. Deal with it. :p
|Jan-06-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: Talk about wild coincidences, I was just re-reading Kipling's "Kim" and a British soldier says "Injia's a wild land for a God-fearing man". Kipling wasn't the slightest bit religious (He jokingly called himself "a God-fearing Christian atheist"). And on the subject of being overly PC, Kipling loved India and was totally immersed in the culture and the Indians and Tibetan lama in the book are a thousand times more likable than the white characters (except for the curator at the ethnology museum in Lahore, who represents Kipling's father), but he's stupidly accused of being racist by the PC critics.|
|Jan-06-18|| ||Annie K.: Oh, absolutely! Kipling is one of my favorites too. :)|
|Jan-06-18|| ||zanzibar: <Annie K> No joke Annie baby, it sucks eggs. And it wasn't even funny when Dennis Miller used it - so it's unfunny and stale.|
Plus its rather misplaced to refer to Anand as Injun. Wonder if anybody asked him for his opinion?
I know being un-PC is all the rage these days, but I'm not buying it.
Now <OCF>, what were you wankeling on about?
|Jan-06-18|| ||zanzibar: Yeah, Twain could use the word nigger in his writings.|
But I dare <CG> to use the word in a pun.
Go ahead, all you fearless un-PC warriors - I double dare you!
Don't go trying to Jew down now.
|Jan-06-18|| ||OhioChessFan: <Annie: Kipling is one of my favorites too.>|
I've never kippled.
|Jan-06-18|| ||zanzibar: https://www.thoughtco.com/how-to-re...|
|Jan-06-18|| ||zanzibar: Oh, and here's some other suggestions for future puns:|
Begin the Injun!
|Jan-06-18|| ||Annie K.: <Ohio> you should try sometime! ;)|
<ChessHigherCat> how about Jack London? I think you should like him too. :)
|Jan-07-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: <Annie K.> Yes, I grew up on his adventure stories and recently discovered lots of interesting stuff on youtube that must have been banned from the school library: "John Barleycorn: Memoirs of an Alcoholic", "The People of the Abyss: London Slum of Death", "The Road", etc. A great author and a real character in life, too.|
|Jan-07-18|| ||Annie K.: <ChessHigherCat> thanks for that list! I am only familiar with 'The Road' out of these titles. What a writer, and what a character indeed.|
Please feel very welcome to drop by my forum to talk books or anything. :)
|Jan-07-18|| ||thegoodanarchist: <beatgiant>: Good one!|
