|Jun-26-07|| ||CaptainEvans: With 22...b4 I assume Penrose overlooked the combination that follows (or at least underestimated the threat). Hats off to Barden for playing 26. Nf5 - it was an absolute corker and wins the game!|
|Apr-11-09|| ||luzhin: A very nice game, but I don't think that 26.Nf5+ is necessarily a winning move -- if Penrose had played 31...Qd8 with the idea 32.Nf7 Qd2!, then White's task would have been by no means easy.|
|Apr-12-09|| ||roberts partner: After 31...Qd8 32 Nf7 Qd2 33 Nxe5 Qc1+ 34 Bd1!(34 Kh2? Qf4 )Qxd1+ 35 Kh2 Qh5 36 exf5 bxc3 37 g4 Qe8 38 Qxe8 White has four pawns for the bishop and significant winning chances.|
|Apr-03-10|| ||offramp: I think 32...Qa7 might have held things together. White will lose the knight on h8, and have 4 pawns for it. It would be close.|
|Sep-13-10|| ||watwinc: 32... Qa7 33 Bb3 seems to hold|
|Aug-20-14|| ||ColeTrane: maybe if black had played h6 some time|

:-) Well spotted - though real many players here will not get it. Too young!
The song in question was one of my favorites in - '73! Thanks for reminding me of it.
|Dec-17-14|| ||Conrad93: I wish I could view this game, but Java has to ruin everything!|
|Dec-17-14|| ||gars: <sfm, Phony Benoni> I remember that song. Back in the early seventies we were all young and full of zest! Yes, those were the days my friend, we thought they'd never end ... Unfortunately they did.|
|Dec-17-14|| ||JimmyRockHound: Well spotted Phony Benoni. I, too, am of that vintage.|
|Dec-17-14|| ||Domdaniel: <Phony B> 'Penrose Garden' was also my first thought, though I never much liked the song.|
|Dec-17-14|| ||Sally Simpson: Good Pun.
There is another link.
This game was a 'Spanish Opening' and there is reference to a 'Rose' and ' I Beg Your Pardon' in the song Spanish Harlem written in the 60's.
|Dec-17-14|| ||Abdel Irada: Black had a perfect excuse: He was distracted by an impossible tribar.|
|Dec-17-14|| ||kevin86: White allows the knight to be trapped in the corner...and then forces black to take it.|
|Dec-17-14|| ||kevin86: Penrose drained!|
|Dec-17-14|| ||RookFile: A typical cautionary tale of what happens with black's queen afar in left field while white burns the house down near black's king.|
|Dec-17-14|| ||Castleinthesky: Penrose's garden was filled with weeds. Very nice sac-combination by Barden.|
|Dec-17-14|| ||Moszkowski012273: Honestly 22.Qe2... was a mistake but Black repayed the favor the very next move. 22.Qf3... was correct. LOVELY combination though!|
