  wordfunph: 37...Qb7??

knight fork coming :(

  najdorfBAS: I don't think 37...Qb7 deserves "??" as Black is completely lost whatever he plays. The damage had been done much earlier with 21...Rae8??
Premium Chessgames Member
  An Englishman: Good Evening: 21...Rae8 might look bad, but what else can Black do against the e-file invasion? The mistake might have come even earlier. Perhaps Black should have accepted the offer of a Queen exchange.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OrangeTulip: Yes swapping the queens would left black with a good game, I guess
Apr-28-19  mrknightly: Would someone (Offramp?)please explain "pun" as it relates to game other than last name.
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: "Read Ferrari" refers to the main colour of Ferrari motor vehicles: red.

"Read" in this case rhymes with "red".

The group Led Zeppelin was originally called "Lead Zeppelin", but people were saying "Leed Zeppelin", so the name was changed.

  offramp: How it relates to the <game>, mrknightly... That is anyone's guess.

Even the great offramp knows not.

  whiteshark: If you replace <clue> with <pun> you're almost there:

<What kinds of clues are there? Some are visual, some are anagrams, some are mathematical, some are in the spirit of crossword clues, some require a knowledge of chess history, and some are just plain bizarre.
