|Mar-01-05|| ||Halfpricemidge: A nice king-hunt; white should've moved 12. Bc4 to prevent black's mate threat 14...Ba6 15...Bh6#. |
|Mar-25-05|| ||Halfpricemidge: White gobbles a Rook and Bish 19. Kxf7 21. Kxg7 but to no avail. |
|May-11-05|| ||RookFile: Nice game.|
|May-11-05|| ||TheAlchemist: Kurz came up short in this one.|
|Sep-16-05|| ||Runemaster: "Mr Kurz, he dead!"|
|Nov-08-05|| ||CeeFoR: Beautiful|
|Nov-08-05|| ||bishopawn: A thing of beauty is a joy forever, to quote Keats. White's 10th, Nxc6+, didn't help his cause. But the Treybal sacrifices steal the show.|
|Oct-31-11|| ||drleper: Vaguely reminiscent of Smitten vs Prince Dadian, 1896 ;)|
|Nov-18-11|| ||sevenseaman: Who holds the chessboard when two magicians play it on a tightrope!|
|Nov-18-11|| ||Phony Benoni: I suggested the pun, but maybe "The Kurz of the Walking Dead" might have been better.|
At least we won't have to argue about whether Black should have mated by castling.
|Nov-18-11|| ||rilkefan: Kurzschluss (short-circuit, quick conclusion) would be a pretty nice pun if we were speaking German. "Trials and Treybalations" also springs to mind. And - well, the original is better anyway.|
|Nov-18-11|| ||Robed.Bishop: I still enjoy playing the King's Gambit because of the wild games that can result. I will also freely admit that I lose quite a few of the games.|
|Nov-18-11|| ||chessicle: <Phony Benoni> Ignoring the illegality, castling here wouldn't be checkmate, because the king needs to cover e7. Though perhaps this is also part of your point.|
|Nov-18-11|| ||HeMateMe: Kurz was the out of control Special Forces Colonel played by Marlon Brando in <"Apocolypse Now">.|
"His men worship him. They'll do anything for him. He's out there alone, without any authority, doing whatever he wants. Your orders are to terminate his command."
Martin Sheen: "Terminate....the Colonel"?
"Terminate with extreme prejudice".
Thus, the hunt for Colonel Kurz begins, deep into the bowels of Vietnam.
<Terminated with Extreme Prejudice> might have been a good pun, but only people who saw the great movie would get it.
|Nov-18-11|| ||Madmartigan: Anyone who plays the King's Gambit, but isn't prepared to play the Muzio (5. 0-0!? in the game line) deserves to be punished like this.|
|Nov-18-11|| ||ThatsTriflin: I prefer "Alas for Bohumir!" Love the discovered checkmate.|
|Nov-18-11|| ||Honza Cervenka: 12.g3?? was a howler.|
|Nov-18-11|| ||kevin86: White led his attack with his king,that's like a boxing strategy of leading with the chin-especially if you happen to be Jay Leno. lol|
|Nov-18-11|| ||ajk68: Is there something wrong with 10. Bxf4...?|
|Apr-30-13|| ||hudapri: <HeHateMe> KurTz, not Kurz|
