|Oct-07-10|| ||sevenseaman: When the White Q assigned itself the menial chore of going after the b6 pawn, I felt it was a waste of a tempo. It was more; the Q never left b6 and the cows came home.|
A good hardworking win. I developed loads of respect for Max Euwe when I came across his 'Road to Chess Mastery'. It was my first book on the game and I still feel, the best I've read.

|Sep-09-13|| ||offramp: So is this the third time this has been GOTD with the same pun?|
|Sep-09-13|| ||Abdel Irada: <A syntactically similar expression is "<Don't shoot the piano player>; he's doing the best he can." It originated around 1860 in the Wild West of the United States. During his 1883 tour of the United States, Oscar Wilde saw this saying on a notice in a Leadville, Colorado, saloon. This phrase (like many witty sayings of that era) is sometimes attributed to Mark Twain, but neither Wilde nor Twain ever claimed authorship.>|
|Sep-09-13|| ||Honza Cervenka: Well, the piano player was shot this time.:-)|
|Sep-09-13|| ||Abdel Irada: He was indeed. :-)

Lyrics of Elton John's Album "Don't shot me - I am only the piano player"
|Sep-09-13|| ||kevin86: White will lose the queen or get mated!|
|Sep-09-13|| ||psmith: <lost in space>: that would be Bob Marley (Clapton covered it).|
|Sep-09-13|| ||waustad: It is a shame that they didn't use this pun on a Taimanov game.|
|Sep-09-13|| ||RookFile: Tartakower was not afraid to try offbeat stuff. I thought the queen going to b6 was an adventure right from the start. There are certainly lines of the King's Indian where black concedes a queenside pawn to get his kingside attack rolling - white is only taking it with a minor piece there, not with his most valuable piece.|

A ♕♗♙♙♙ should be enough to beat a ♖♖♙♙ force.

Are you misquoting Eric Clapton or Bob Marley?
|Sep-09-13|| ||tivrfoa: puzzle: 39. ... ? black to play
now, for which day of the week? =D
|Sep-09-13|| ||Abdel Irada: <lost in space: I shot the sheriff, but I haven't shoot the deputy|
Reminds me of when I was living in Santa Cruz and overheard some neighborhood children playing outside.
One of them was trying to sing that song but didn't quite know the lyrics, so he kept chanting, "I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the sheriffy!"
|Sep-09-13|| ||Check It Out: Hm, looks like a case of " 'scuse me while I kiss this guy" lyricing.|
This is not the type of game I associate with Euwe, and my history is weak because I can hardly believe Tartakower was playing a game in 1948.
Finally, I don't get the pun. Was Tart. a piano player?
|Sep-10-13|| ||Shams: <Check It Out> Italian Game = Giuoco Piano|
|Sep-10-13|| ||Check It Out: Gawd, I'm slow today.|
|Sep-10-13|| ||Abdel Irada: <Check It Out: Hm, looks like a case of " 'scuse me while I kiss this guy" lyricing.>|
That would be a Mondegreen.
|May-27-14|| ||SpiritedReposte: This is a proper king hunt. White's king could run but not hide.|
|Jun-09-14|| ||gabriel112000: 17. h4? and 18. hxg5? are weak moves, brilliant game nevertheless.|
|Oct-14-14|| ||RafaelAquino: Pienso que Euwe tenia la partida perdida cuando movió 37... Rey a f7. Tartakower debió mover Reina C7 JAQUE.|
|Sep-06-15|| ||ozu: <Check It Out> Interestingly, sometimes Jimi Hendrix did sing " 'scuse me while I kiss this guy."|
|May-09-17|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: In the hands of Euwe this is a Queen of special class !|
