Mar-22-11  FSR: Hungary Like V. Wolf.
Oct-26-16  HeMateMe: We're definitely in best pun/worst pun territory here...
Oct-26-16  AlicesKnight: Not sure if the game offers a great deal (pun excepted) beyond exploitation of weak pawns. White does well to maintain initiative and in the final sequence avoids danger of 'perpetual' and pressures the Black isolani well.
Oct-26-16  Conrad93: This is the best pun I've seen in a long in a time...
Oct-26-16  newzild: Somebody will have to help me with the pun. In what sense is V. Wolf "hungry"? It looks like Chandler is the one snatching pawns.

FUSER, perhaps u shod do some VOLANTEER work insted of voting for pons all day!

Oct-26-16  Chizoad: Black's mess began with an apparently simple goal to create himself some doubled, isolated pawns beginning with 5...Bc5. What does this move accomplish? Then 6...c6, 7...d5 to complete the plan. The black bishop proceeds to protect the d4 pawn for the rest of the game, and does nothing else.

Chandler's plan seems pretty simple after those doubled pawns were created. Make no positional errors, and keep trading down. Eventually, the weakness of the doubled, isolated pawns will become apparent. It takes about 30 moves to get down to a queen and pawn ending, but that is when the doubled pawns eventually result in a pawn advantage for white.

I like the pun.

Oct-26-16  Chizoad: Might be funnier if you notice the game was played in Hungary.
Oct-26-16  RookFile: Petrosian was one of the first to just move the king from the kingside to the queenside. Chandler does it here. He is in no hurry, the pawn structure is forever.
