|Sep-10-10|| ||sevenseaman: Amazing denouement at Move 22. How I wish I'd foreseen this Q flourish!|
|Mar-20-11|| ||redcircle: Monday or Tuesday puzzle on move 22.white to play|
|May-20-14|| ||sleepyirv: A reference to Weird Al Yankovich, I think.|
|May-20-14|| ||Phony Benoni: In the beginning, there was the song and video "Beat It" by Michael Jackson. In the fullness of time, "Weird Al" Yankovic came up with a parody, "Eat It":|
"Eat It" can also be slang term for cramming something down somebody's throat. That might be descriptive of the game as well.
|May-20-14|| ||Jim Bartle: Don't forget the flip side to <Eat It>: "I Love Rocky Road," |
|May-20-14|| ||consul: 22. …… Ng8
23. Qh8 .. Bf7
24. Bh6 .. Bxe6
25. Qxg7+ .. Ke8
Or what's the plan?
|May-20-14|| ||Phony Benoni: <consul> In your line, After 23...Bf7 White regains his sacrifice piece with 24.Bxf7 Kxf7 25.Rxc6, remaining three pawns ahead.|
|May-20-14|| ||RookFile: I guess they can put this one right next to the Michael Jackson hologram that's out there these days. Was watching the Wierd Al video, it's hilarious. :)|
|May-20-14|| ||jahhaj: So the pun refers to Weird Al Yankovich? Pretty weak IMHO.|
|May-20-14|| ||consul: Hi, <Phony Benoni>, thank you! You're right, the dark-squared white <b>, in h6 is just lost.
I was thinking there might be a checkmate, but it resolves with a probably long battle, especially with the ladies still on the board…|
The pun is nice in my opinion, because it refers to the obvious mate after 22. … gxh6 23. ♗h6 #.
|May-20-14|| ||naresb: Continuation of the game is as follows:--
23. Bxh6+ # (1-0).
However here Black appears to have made some mistakes and thus shortened the game, he coould have played like:-- 21... Bf7
22. Bxh6; gxBh6
23. Qxh6; BxBe6
24. Ng5; Ng4
25. Qh7+; Kf8
26. Qh8+; Bh7
27. Nh7+; Ke8
28. QxBg8+; Kd7
and black could have lost a Bishop, a Knight, two pawns against that of whites' two Bishops; material damage alongwith positional loss.
|May-20-14|| ||Once: <Phony Benoni> "Eat it" was good, but that led me to "Amish Paradise" which had me in stitches. Great stuff.|
|May-20-14|| ||Jim Bartle: My favorite is "Another One Rides the Bus."|
|May-20-14|| ||TheTamale: So, instead of taking the queen, can't Black extend his life expectancy by playing 22)... Bf7? Then if 25) Qh8+, Black can safely block the check.|
Or can he??? Clearly Bronstein would have known better than I... I just can't see it.
|May-20-14|| ||Castleinthesky: Black definitely "ate it." It is a nice, almost miniature. Without the assistance of any computer, Bronstein played much too passively and set himself up for a great combination.|
|May-20-14|| ||kevin86: Black had some counterplay, but it wasn't going to be easy. The taking of the queen results in immediate mate, of course.|
|May-20-14|| ||Conrad93: So he defeated a very old bronstein with a typical mate.|
Why is this GOTD?
|May-20-14|| ||Jazzer32: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5L...
This one is definitely best Al's song...
P.S. interesting chess game
|May-20-14|| ||Domdaniel: Was this 'Weird Al Yermolinsky' ...?|
|May-20-14|| ||goodevans: <TheTamale: So, instead of taking the queen, can't Black extend his life expectancy by playing 22)... Bf7? Then if 25) Qh8+, Black can safely block the check.>|
That stops the immediate mate but leaves the ♘c6 hanging. And once that's gone there will follow <Ne5> and the roof caves in.
|May-20-14|| ||Tim Delaney: <The Tamale> "So, instead of taking the queen, can't Black extend his life expectancy by playing 22)... Bf7? Then if 25) Qh8+, Black can safely block the check."|
However, White then exchanges bishops and wins the knight at c6. Three pawns up and a raging attack. Even I could handle that.
The best seems to be 22 Bd6, creating a flight square. but then 23. Qh8+ Ke7, 24 Qg7+ Kxe6, Re1+ and black loses quickly.
|May-20-14|| ||celtrusco: Great pun!|
|May-20-14|| ||WannaBe: My favourite Weird Al, Saga Begins, Forrest Gump, White 'n Nerdy, Amish Paradise (Churning Butter Scene), Bedrock Anthem, Smells Like Teen Spirit, I Love Rocky Road.|
Um, I think that's it... =))
|May-20-14|| ||Cheapo by the Dozen: Fred Reinfeld would have approved of this game; it's like something out of his Complete Chess Course (which is a book I grew up with, many decades ago).|
|May-22-14|| ||TheTamale: <TimDelaney>: OK, yes, thanks. I knew I must have been overlooking something simple.|
