Jul-14-11  andrewjsacks: This is the type of game that must be checked for authenticity.

  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".

  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...

  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.

  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.

  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.

  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.
May-01-14  Mats G: The first name of black is Antti. The game is certainly authentic: It was played in the school championship of Suomalainen yhteiskoulu in the fall 1925 (Eero Böök: Odödliga partier och andra schackkåserier, Holger Schildts förlag, Helsingfors, 1966)
May-01-14  sakredkow: Throw the Book at him!
