  cu8sfan: Funny, it's YET another game. Thanks for fixing it,

  cu8sfan: Actually I prefer Suetin vs Korchnoi, 1952 and Suetin vs Korchnoi, 1951 for a pun about White ♘♘. In both of these games they ride together and at least one ♘ stays on the board until the game is over.

  offramp: Yes... The pun does seem to have lost some of its meaning now!

  kevin86: I like the finish! The white bishop had two functions at the end:to guard from the black king's approach at c7. To prevent the skewer along the b file when the white pawn queens. The threat is of course b8(q) and black is helpless to stop it.

Ironically,the star in this game is the bishop not the knight mentioned in the pun.

Oct-28-04  mahmoudkubba: Black made a mistake in moving the rook to a2 I wonder why he did that??
