|Apr-28-17|| ||offramp: Poor Nigel. Destined to be remembered as the poor sod with more GoTD puns based on his name than anyone in history. And that includes Mikhail Tal!|
Today's pun makes more sense if you speak with a strong Leith accent, and it is funnier if you also say it out loud in front of a tall mirror with your sleeves rolled up.
|Apr-28-17|| ||HeMateMe: "Hit me with your best shot" was a big hit for rocker Pat Benetar in the 1980s:|
|Apr-28-17|| ||TheBish: I'm a little confused. I thought the "Best Short" would be a game won by Short, and preferably, a great game by him, i.e. a brilliancy. And ideally, a miniature, making a pun on his name (as in short game). Isn't what the title is all about?|
|Apr-28-17|| ||eykca: I agree w/ <TheBish> perhaps "Just Judit" (think Nike) is a bit more fitting.|

|Apr-28-17|| ||PeterPringle: How about "Brit Me With Your Best Short"? How do you like that Mate?|
|Apr-28-17|| ||newzild: Pun would work better with a comma after "best".|
The significance of this game increases in the context of Short's correct but suicidal comments about female underperformance in the chess realm.
|Apr-28-17|| ||mravikiran: I think "Short fall" would be a good pun as well|
|Apr-28-17|| ||offramp: Don't worry, everyone. All of those suggestions will be used in the future.|
|Apr-28-17|| ||Stonehenge: What about <Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict>?|
|Apr-28-17|| ||morfishine: Like a flood tide, the irresistible stream of candidates for "The most ludicrous, nonsensical and ultimately stupid game title of the year" award, continue to roll-in|
|Apr-28-17|| ||Eusebius: Crystal clear game by Judith. I guess Nigel went straight to a bar after that to drown his misery with a couple of pints...|
|Apr-28-17|| ||An Irishman: Good Morning: I was surprised by the sac on move 30. I was not sure if it would work at first. But of course GM Polgar made it work!|
|Apr-28-17|| ||Willber G: I'd have been tempted to continue with 48.Re7|
|Apr-28-17|| ||Eric Farley: The best title for this game, albeit not a pun, should be "Meet everybody's punching bag."|

All your posts are the same, and they all suck. Can you at least take the trouble to find a new metaphor? Even punching bags wear out.

|Apr-28-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: 17.... Ra4 doesn't really the win the e4 pawn because white plays 18. Nb5|
|Apr-28-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: How about "Nigel under Judith's
Pulgar" (meaning thumb in English, unless Trump has outlawed all bilingual puns pending adequate security checks)
|Apr-28-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: You guys are a barrel of laughs. Quick to criticize a bad pun and too spiteful to acknowledge a good one!|

I like your idea...<Just Judit> seems good...<Short fall> is OK.
<TheBish> has some good points. The pun would be better if the game wasn't 47 moves long. It is <rapid>, though.
|Apr-28-17|| ||tamar: Judit taking a long walk off a Short Peer.|
|Apr-28-17|| ||ajk68: 17. Na2? White should have traded queens.|
