  waustad: The brewer threw out the the first pitch at a Southern Ohio Copperheads game and chatted with us for a while. This was during Ohio Brew Week.

  numbersguy70: Moves like 29.Bxf5 and Tal's 11.Qh4 in Tal vs Smyslov Tal vs Smyslov, 1959 are what separates chess as a hobby from chess as a career.

  kevin86: While black's pieces are tied up,the pawn advances...
Mar-22-12  thendcomes: For those wondering about the pun...

Brooklyn Lager is a delicious beer from Brooklyn Brewery in Brooklyn, New York. It's more of an ale than a lager, but I digress.

Bobby Fischer moved to Brooklyn around the age of 5-6 and lived there for many years. A stein is a mug that you pour beer in.

Mar-22-12  ughaibu: Ridiculous! That there are no delicious beers brewed outside Norther Europe is an established myth.
Mar-22-12  rapidcitychess: Very nice game, I honestly could understand very little of it. ^^
Mar-22-12  ughaibu: Rapidcitychess: has it occurred to you that maybe very little of it made sense?
Mar-22-12  haydn20: re <ulhumbrus> from 2010. Even belatedly, it's nice to hear of someone listening to Hummel, the great rival of Beethoven's youth. The Trios by the Beaux Arts on Philips are very fine too. I was glad to be reminded of this game, tho' it is far beyond my level of chess ability.

  MichaelJHuman: How can a lager be an ale? It's either made with lager yeast, and fermented at lager temps, or it's an ale (or it's Anchor Steam, but that's an aberration :)
Mar-22-12  HeMateMe: I remember voting for this pun, in the Pun Voting Booth, and giving it 4/4. I'm surprised it took this long for it to be the GOTD.
Mar-23-12  sofouuk: so overnight run completed. still no decisive verdict

29 ... gxf5 30 Ne5! Nxe5 31 Rxe5 Qd1+! 32 Kh2 Qd6! <so that if the WQ moves the WR is pinned> 33 Bb2! <threatening Rad1 winning, so ...> Nd3

34 Qxf5! Rf8! 35 Qxh5 Nxb2 <if Bf6 36 Rae1! wins:

an amusing position, but black is helpless>

36 Qg4+ Kh6 37 f4! Qxe5 (forced) 38 fxe5


click for larger view

still no straightforward knockout, but looks very good for white

Mar-23-12  sofouuk: correction @ instead of 34 Qxf5?, 34 Qg3 seems to win - Kh7 35 Rd1 Nxb2 36 Rxd6 Bxd6 37 Qf4!


click for larger view

apparently white is just winning(!) ... Nc4 38 Qxf5+, a few more checks then play f2-f4, the WQ, e-pawn and wide open BK means black can't resist. believe it or not

Jul-09-13  Conrad93: 22. Nf6?! would have been an interesting Tal-like move.

  offramp: The pun relates to the superb Dortmund beer called Fischer's Hell. I always drink it with a chaser of Curaçao.
Jul-06-15  Zonszein: Hello <leka> thank you for that. I'm looking forward to listen to it
Feb-17-16  thegoodanarchist: Sparkling play by the future champion.
