  Phony Benoni: The pun will just take a moment. For thirty years, Johnny Carson hosted the Tonight Show. His sidekick and announcer was Ed <McMahon>, who always introducted the host by saying, "Heeeeeeeeere's Johnny!"

If there were the two guys I remember from APCT in the 1970s, they were C. Stanley McMahon and Ted Krystosek. Neither were masters, but they did play entertaining chess.

The "pure" mate is the best part of this game. I was reminded of the finish in Duras vs S Jes, 1912

Jun-09-12  bengalcat47: The Reelz Channel still shows the syndicated program "Carson's Comedy Classics," which shows many of the late Johnny Carson's hilarious skits. Both Johnny and Ed McMahon have moved on performing "up above."

  SuperPatzer77: <Phony Benoni> Far out!!! LOL LOL. I remember Ed McMahon's famous say "Heeere's Johnny".

<Phony Benoni> If I were Ed McMahon, I'd say "Heeere's <Phony Benoni>".

  Tiggler: This game shows why the King's Gambit is a lottery: last person to check wins.
