|Feb-09-10|| ||TheaN: <al wazir: After 10...Kc6 white has nothing better than 11. Bxd8 Bh6+ 12. Kb1 Rxd8. Material is even, though black's king has had a bad scare. But that would have spoiled the fun.|
Nullifidian: <al wazir>
The material may be even, but 10...c6 gives at least as good prospects as taking the queen with 10.Bxd8.>
Hm. I have to admit it would have ruined the played combination, still, I do not agree with this being the best move for White, which leaves a good position at most. I think White can abuse his development with:
<10.Bb5?! Kc5!? (10....Kb6 11.Bxd8! Bh6 12.Kb1 Rxd8 13.Nd5 Kxb5 14.Nxc7 Kc6 15.Nxa8 and I highly doubt Black has enough compensation here with such terrible development) 11.Rd5 (11.Be3? Kb4 12.a3 Ka5 ) 11....Kb6 (11....Kb4 12.Bxd8 Bh6 13.Kb1 Rxd8 14.a3 Ka5 15.Bxd7 ) 12.Na4 Ka5 13.Bxd8 Bh6 14.Kb1 Rxd8 15.Bxd7 > with similar motives as earlier should give White clear prospects, compared to the immediate Bxd8.

|Jul-14-11|| ||Phony Benoni: Like.|
|Jul-14-11|| ||andrewjsacks: This is the type of game that must be checked for authenticity.|
|Jul-14-11|| ||FSR: Ha! Very cool game.|
|Jul-14-11|| ||azax: I swear I've seen this game before, at least the series of moves. Unfortunately, I don't have full access to the CG database...|
|Jul-14-11|| ||rilkefan: Bit surprised the pun wasn't better - "A real hiiding" or "Threw the book at him" spring to mind. Or even "Hit him like a ton of books".|
|Jul-14-11|| ||FSR: <azax> The only other game in the database with 4...Ng5 is J Kis vs E Csato, 1993, which took a completely different course and was won by Black.|
|Jul-14-11|| ||BiteByBits: i think black played a help mate by Kxc4 but thats what happens when you want to risk your king like that...|
|Jul-14-11|| ||AylerKupp: I admire White's self control. He could have taken Black's queen for straight 7 moves and refrained from doing so.|
|Jul-14-11|| ||Sem: Spoil-the-pun: wasn't his name written Böök and pronounced like 'Euwe'?|
|Jul-14-11|| ||consul: The pun made me laugh! But i wouldn't laugh thinking about the game. Very interesting also the lines proposed after 10.Kc6.|
|Jul-14-11|| ||midknightblue: typical book moves. No surprises here.|
|Jul-14-11|| ||HeMateMe: My hero Eero was "booked up", as they say at the Chess Life sales window.|
|Jul-14-11|| ||APatzer: Black queen not worth taking !|
|Jul-14-11|| ||hedgeh0g: Not sure if any of this was "book" in 1925, but White simply played the most obvious moves after Black blundered in the opening and quickly achieved a won game.|
|Jul-14-11|| ||kevin86: "I am Book-do you read me?" I remember this game from the 1000 Best Short Games of Chess.-by Chernov;I even remember his cute remark on black's last move:look who is checking.|
Not exactly a Monday puzzle...
|Jul-14-11|| ||castledweller: exciting game . . .
Black's queen is left hanging while White chases the king all around the board, attempting to mate without the need to take the queen - a unique and fun game. And it all happens so early on - thx CG.
|Jul-14-11|| ||castledweller: one for the books|
|Jul-14-11|| ||Yerbamate: insane combinations deep|
|Jul-14-11|| ||Blunderdome: Hmm, I didn't suggest this game for game of the day, but I did make the same pun on Feb 9th, 2010 at Keres vs Book, 1952.|
|Jul-14-11|| ||SuperPatzer77: <Kevin86> Let's say "Book him for checkmate" when mirandizing him. LOL LOL LOL.|
|Jul-14-11|| ||Lorenzon: wow what a coincidence, I looked at this game yesterday!!|
|Jul-14-11|| ||WhiteRook48: awesome mating attack, but horrendous pun|
|Oct-31-12|| ||pablo333: Brilliant play from Book: white appears to have a forced win after the seemingly logical 7... g6 from Hiidenheimo.|
