Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-21-11  backyard pawn: "I Schutt, the sheriff," but I did not shoot the deputy.
Jul-21-11  Oceanlake: A specialist in losing the Vienna.
Jul-21-11  IRONCASTLEVINAY: Nice movie nice pun
Jul-21-11  goodevans: To my inexpert eye <16 Qd5> looks like the losing move. I'm not sure what white was trying to achieve with that.
Jul-21-11  TheRavenPK: After 17.Qxb7 there is a forced mate in 8. (white can shorten it) 17..Nxe2+ 18.Kh1 N4g3+ 19.hxg3 Nxg3+ 20.Kg1 Bd4+ 21.Rf2 Bxf2+ 22.Kxf2 Qe2+ 23.Kg1 Qf1+ 24.Kh2 Qh2#.
Jul-21-11  abuzic: Greediness? As early as move 12, white should give his N and be satisfied with the exchange.

I think black felt this and took control of the center and started a clever attack, ignoring white's N.

White realized the danger later and had to offer his Q with 17.Qxd4, to avoid #: The Price of Greediness

16.Qd5? Nd4! now if 17.Qxb7?? (probably the idea behind 16.Qd5?) then it is actually mate in 6 black shortening it!:

<TheRavenPK: After 17.Qxb7 there is a forced mate in 8....17..Nxe2+ 18.Kh1 N4g3+ 19.hxg3 Nxg3+ 20.Kg1 Bd4+ 21.Rf2 Bxf2+ 22.Kxf2 Qe2+ 23.Kg1 Qf1+ 24.Kh2 Qh2#.>

17...Nxe2+ 18.Kh1 N(any)g3+ 19.hxg3 Nxg3+ 20.Kg1 Bd4+ 21.Rf2 Qe1+ <(instead of 21...Bxf2+)> 22.Kh2 Qh1#

Jul-21-11  sfm: For a correspondence chess game, 16.Qd5 is quite a blunder. The reply is very plausible and analyzed through in a few seconds. Don't even try that in a blitz-game towards a master player.
Jul-21-11  scormus: Er .... um ..... well .... give me a moment to get the remnants of my brain in gear ..... yes.

I get it now, another brilliant pun this week. W played this correspondance game with his "Eyes Wide Shut"

Jul-21-11  JohnBoy: "Schutt Up" would have worked better on several levels.

  TheTamale: <TheRavenPK>: Yes, that is a beautiful mate. Thanks for posting. I figured out the first few moves but then got stalled. Oh well... at least White can say "I was ahead on material the whole way."
Jul-21-11  David2009: So what should White have played at move 16 (position below)?

I tried 16.c3 and came to grief quickly: 16...Qc5+ 17.Kh1 Nb4! (wholly unexpected) 18.Qf3 (expecting Ng3+ 19.hxg3 Bxf3 20.Rxf3) Nd3! 0-1

I'm sure you'll do much better. Good luck and have fun!

  kevin86: Schutt your mouth,go away,mama look a boo boo day.

A good game-EWS was a great movie and a great sound track

Not a bad game either...

Jul-21-11  abuzic: White could keep his advantage and win the game with 15.Rxf4 Qc5+ 16.Kf1 (16.Kh1? Nf2+ 17.Rxf2 Qxf2; 16.Rf2?? Qxf2+ 17.Kh1 Qe1+ 18.Ng1 Nf2#) g5 19.Qxe4 gxf4 20.d4 Bxd4 21.Bxf4 Bxa8. A P ahead, connected pawns, not bad at all for white.
Jul-21-11  abuzic: Very interesting dialogue:
Black: 'I Shutt', but what?; White: 'I had my eyes shut"; Both: "we played an horror game, Frankenstein vs. Dracula".
Jul-21-11  goodevans: <David2009: So what should White have played at move 16 ... ?>

16 Rxf4 Qc5+ 17 Qe3 Nd4 18 Kh1 Qh5 19 Rxe4 Nxe2 20 Qxe2 Bxe4 21 Qxh5 gxh5 22 d3 leaves white with a slight advantage.

Jul-21-11  CapablancaFan122: Uhh, Qd5 was a really bad move. Just looking at it makes me cringe :)
Jul-21-11  WhiteRook48: the pun describes how White played in this game
Jan-01-12  Blunderdome: For posterity's sake I'd like to note that black's surname when given as "Schutt" when this pun was published.
