|Nov-11-05|| ||weary willy: Er ... I just wondered if "Ivan c4 Miles" could be even worse|
Igor Ivanov vs Miles, 1982
|Nov-11-05|| ||Castle In The Sky: How about "Singin' In Therien?"|
|Nov-11-05|| ||benveniste: I see 11... b6? as the losing move. As for the pun, it rates right down there with "chess nuts boasting in an open foyer."|
|Nov-11-05|| ||WannaBe: <chessfreako> The movie was Cool Running, about the Jamaican bob-sled team.|
|Nov-11-05|| ||soberknight: Great pun, although of course I had no idea what it was about.|
|Nov-11-05|| ||YouRang: I tried to analyze this game with my computer chess engine, but when it saw the pun it refused.|
|Nov-11-05|| ||WannaBe: The pun is mightier than the game.|
|Nov-11-05|| ||Happypuppet: <CeeFoR> Pronounce names correctly and almost every pun on the website is ruined. Oh well...|
|Nov-11-05|| ||kevin86: A series of fine moves by white:first the sharp Nd7 and then the crushing reture to f6!|
The pun is really good,if you do pronounce his name as "the rain"-i pronounced it as tear-rion,so i missed it at first.
|Nov-11-05|| ||netlava: LMAO at the pun.|
|Nov-11-05|| ||Guest1800: Ugh...And Chessgames hangs the pun.
Too bad the Championship was held in Quebec, and not Madrid. Chessgames would then have created two badly placed doubled-puns(pawn intended): "The Reign of Therien falls mainly down in Spain."
|Nov-11-05|| ||arifattar: Didn't get it straight away but now I am a believer.|
|Nov-11-05|| ||chessfreako: <WannaBe> Ok thx for telling me!|
|Dec-18-05|| ||Chess Classics: <Castle In The Sky: How about "Singin' In Therien?"> That would work too, not as subtle though.|
|Feb-19-06|| ||MorphyMatt: 14. ♘d7! is great.|
|Apr-30-09|| ||chessgames.com: To make sure that none of the puns this month interfere with the Pun Contest currently in progress, and also to get people into the spirit, throughout the entire month of May we'll be showing reruns of some of the best games/puns that Chessgames used in the past.|
Most of our Games of the Day this month will be reruns from 2006 and earlier. Many of these games are classics which are due to be replayed anyhow, others are just great games that deserve to be shown again.
For more information on the 2009 Chessgames Pun Contest, please see Pun Submission Page. To rate puns that people have entered into the contest, please visit the Pun Voting Booth. Thanks!
|May-01-09|| ||WannaBe: If, my memory serves me correct, (boy, it's been a long time, and I'm too lazy to search through the kibitz'n)...|
This, was a Caissar Winner for the Best/Worst Pun... If nothing else, I know it was a Nominee, because I was the one who put in the nomination!!!
|May-01-09|| ||ajile: I only came in here to see the comments on the screemin pun...|
|May-01-09|| ||sfm: Everything looks quiet, normal and healty - but oops, 14.Nd7 and it is over.|
|May-01-09|| ||kellmano: <sfm> couldn't agree more. I can well imagine playing with the black pieces and thinking 'both bishops lined up at the king, how shall i get my kingside attack going?' When 14. Nd7 is played I would think 'That's a strange move, it can't be any good'. Five moves later i am resigning.|
|May-01-09|| ||Pawnage: Oh wow, 14. Nd7 is a move I would never see. I wouldn't get the point.|
|May-01-09|| ||whiteshark: Yet another dumb French loser...|
|May-01-09|| ||roughstuff: this game shocked me !, because as noted by <kellmano> if I was black I would be thinking my position is fine and there is no danger. In fact I would be anticipating a long struggle in the endgame!!. I need to retune my chess antenae|
|May-01-09|| ||Marmot PFL: Right after 12...Bb7 and 13...Qe7i was sure 14 Bxh7+ Kxh7 15 Rd7 was coming. This is easy to find even if you dont see 14 Nd7 which shows how bad black's game is. If he had seen what was coming he could have bitten the bullet with 14 ...Qxd7 15 Bxh7+ Nxh7 16 Rxd7 Bc8 and Nxg5 and white still has to win it.|
|May-01-09|| ||costachess: 14. ... Qxd7
(if 15. Bh7+ Kh7!
16. Rxd7 Nxd7 and the black have got a B,N and R for the queen)
15. ... Qc8
