|Apr-01-12|| ||goodevans: <An Englishman: Good Evening: Anyone else wondering if this is a composed game? Something about the time of year brings out the paranoia in me.>|
The game has been in the database for 8 years. To have planted it just for today would really have been playing the long game <(unlike our two players!)>.
|Apr-01-12|| ||Llawdogg: Wow! A troll did a good thing. Go Troll!|
|Apr-01-12|| ||SuperPatzer77: Hey, chessfolks! Today is April Fool's Day!! Puck is for ice hockey games. Puck isn't a part of the chess game. LOL LOL.|
Way to go, Troll!!!
|Apr-01-12|| ||Memethecat: Whites 7Bf4 is obviously a mistake, a better continuation is 7. Ne4 Bb8 8. Qxd8+ Kxd8 9. Nxc5 Nf6 10. Bg5 Ke7 11. O-O-O h6 12. Bf4 Neg4 13. Bxb8 Rxb8 14. Nh3 b6 15. Re1+ Be6 with a slight advantage & a better chance of controlling the squares beneath the bridge.|
|Apr-01-12|| ||Qxf7: Queenlover: Puck was the main character in A Midsummer Night's Dream.|
Y U NO PLAY GOOD MOVES???
|Apr-01-12|| ||Penguincw: Wow. White got fooled, sort of.|
|Apr-01-12|| ||waustad: What fools these mortals be.|
|Apr-01-12|| ||SuperPatzer77: <sleepyirv: For those not aware of internet memes, this is a reference to the "troll face." Google it if you like.>|
<sleepyirv> Yeah, Troll's face is scary-looking!!
Chessfolks, if you don't believe us, you try to click on "Troll" on the top of this page "Puck vs Troll". You'll take a look at the lovely picture of Troll
LOL LOL - (Psst, don't scream when you see that Troll cartoon - OK?)
|Apr-01-12|| ||master of defence: 9. Nd5?? 9. Qe2 would have much better.|
|Apr-01-12|| ||lemaire90: Great pun for April fools too !|
|Apr-01-12|| ||RestlessLife: this pun literally made me "lol", thank you for the amusing pun CG|
|Apr-01-12|| ||jovack: hahahaha I can't believe that they actually named the game that :)|
|Apr-01-12|| ||mj29479: Was this game played on 01st April 1961...you know what this day means :P|
|Apr-01-12|| ||master of defence: I donīt know if this happens in your countries, but in my country 1st of abril is considered the day of lie.|
|Apr-01-12|| ||drpoundsign: yup computers were pretty dumb back then. To think whenever I play Sicilian as Black I get whacked|
|Apr-01-12|| ||Domdaniel: "The day of Lie", eh.
I always knew Odd Lie would have his day.
Puck -- no relation to the ice hockey thing, sports fans -- is an impish sprite in Shakespeare's 'Midsummer Night's Dream'. The name Puck is related to the Irish 'Pooka'.
But letting the Troll actually *win*? What kind of example does that set? Yes, problem.
|Apr-01-12|| ||HeMateMe: i think Shaekesperian puns are too deep for most of us. Why can't Spiderman and Batman comic books be used, instead?|
|Apr-01-12|| ||WannaBe: It is better to have pun'd and groan'd than to have not punted on fourth down. (And 8 to go)|
|Apr-01-12|| ||Oceanlake: After many hours of consideration, I deem 6. Nf3 a better move.|
|Apr-01-12|| ||WannaBe: The obvious problem is that white did not play 2. Ke2.|
If white had played the above mentioned move, the whole game would have been over by the third move, e.g. 3. Qxd8#
|Apr-01-12|| ||Julian713: Puck is the closest thing to a "troll" one can find in Shakespeare, so that makes this pun awesome on several levels :D|
|Apr-02-12|| ||kevin86: This game reminds me of a knight/queen double check/mate my Chernev against Miller.|
|Nov-23-12|| ||Sem: <HeMateMe> Why be satisfied with mediocrity?|
|Nov-23-12|| ||HeMateMe: ok....one pawn sac not a summer maketh?|
|Nov-27-12|| ||Sem: <HeMateMe> LOL. Thanks!
T' is a curious game that can so absorb its players.|
