|Aug-17-05|| ||olav dalkeith: Who is Malinin? 16 games in the database only over a period of 35 years isn't very much. This game is so amazing that one is tempted to believe it has been composed!?|
|Oct-11-11|| ||sevenseaman: Amazing game! Every move from 23. Nxg7 <Malinin> poses a new challenge. Never heard of him, but won't forget now.|
|Oct-11-11|| ||HeMateMe: Can someone explain the pun, please?|
|Oct-11-11|| ||Jose Ortiz Elias: The pun is "Malinin" is close to the sound of "Malignant", so, we have something like "Malignant Aforethought".|
|Oct-11-11|| ||Shams: <HeMateMe> It barely qualifies as a pun. "Malice aforethought" is a phrase that expresses the common law mens rea ("guilty mind") element required to return a verdict of murder, as opposed to manslaughter. |
Despite the word "aforethought" there is no requirement that the act be premeditated. The guilty mind may be established in a split second, as for example when one's hand closes around the neck of a thick candlestick, within reach of one's dinner partner. In my mind I've already bludgeoned a dozen to death on the Rogoff page alone.
|Oct-11-11|| ||Jose Ortiz Elias: The position after the 27th movement is the plenitude of an open position, Ħbut after a closed opening!|
|Oct-11-11|| ||HeMateMe: Oh, geez. Now I have to go to law school to read the P.O.T.D. Life just gets more and more complicated. |
I was just at the New York daily news site. It's a paper like England's "News of the World", a trashy daily. They have video of african american teenage girls throwing punches at NYPD cops, after the girls were caught fare beating. People were whipping out those cell phone cams, straight to YouTube.
It's like the whole world's a train wreck. You can watch any problem, at any place, these days.
|Oct-11-11|| ||kevin86: A very colorful pun indeed. The discovered checks decide this one-also in a colorful manner.|
|Oct-11-11|| ||rapidcitychess: I miss the stupid puns.
It seems like the pun-makers are trying to hard now. :(
|Oct-11-11|| ||Phony Benoni: Not a very good pun in my mind either; it would have worked better had White been Burkhard G J Malich. I'd prefer to go with <kevin86>'s "colorful" suggestion and use something based on "melanin".|
A more interesting question is whether Black was present-day US GM Dimitri Gurevich who was 11 years old at the time.
|Oct-11-11|| ||Mudphudder: That last sequence of discovered attacks is sick!!|
|Dec-02-11|| ||Penguincw: Hmm. A sort of interesting game.|
|Dec-02-11|| ||King Death: < Shams: <HeMateMe> It barely qualifies as a pun.> |
This pun doesn't make any sense.
<In my mind I've already bludgeoned a dozen to death on the Rogoff page alone.>
I'm not a veteran of the site like you, but I've had that thought about a few of the battle hardened ones there. I even put one on ignore because his berating other people just never stops, and it isn't like he even wants to hear what somebody else has to say.
<Phony Benoni> I wonder about which Gurevich this was too. That last name seems to be common enough. Maybe a little bit of a Russian Jewish version of Smith.
|Apr-01-13|| ||Gryz: My guess would be that this is indeed a game played by GM D. Gurevich.|
Both Gurevich and Malinin were born in 1956. That would make this a game between two 11-year old Russian kids. Who were both talented enough to become Grand Masters later in their lives.
