  tpstar: Yes indeed, 32. 5456! is a nice move. 32. 5456! 32. 5456!

Short tried the Zapata Maneuver in Tripoli with far less success.

Dec-10-04  aw1988: LOL!
Dec-10-04  aw1988: I tried composing the above post with no '!' but it wouldn't let me. The actual one posted looks much more sloppy. :(
Dec-22-04  fgh: Rooockkkk E666!

  whiteshark: <tpstar: <...Short tried the Zapata Maneuver in Tripoli with far less success.>>

OoooooooohhhhhhhhhhhMG. I'm laughing so hard my stomach hurts. <121.Re6??!> Short vs Krasenkow, 2004

Sep-02-11  lemaire90: looooooooooooool @ the Short reference !!

  Phony Benoni: You talking about 32.T6R?
Sep-02-11  sevenseaman: Ooooooh Zapata!
Sep-02-11  Oceanlake: As Tarrasch once said, the pawn has the choice to be weak on d4 or d5. And Nimzowitsch said, it's not the pawn but the squares around the pawn that are weak..
Sep-02-11  TheRavenPK: 32. Re6!

  whiteshark: Chariot crosses the Yellow River to E six.
Sep-02-11  erniecohen: 32...♘xb2
Sep-02-11  MPU: Intriguing. This is the same player who pulled off this famous miniature: A Zapata vs Anand, 1988
Sep-02-11  redcircle: Actually 32.Re6 is similar to Short's 121.Re6 but Black did not take advantage of.32..Nxb2 was the correct response.This is a game full of mistakes.This variation is critical for Black.I play it myself and is difficult for Black to equalize.See anotations of this game on ChessBase
Sep-02-11  scormus: After 32 Re6, you'd think B would have smelt a rat ;)

  kevin86: What did I miss? White's combination gained him a pawn and queen dor two rooks-where is the gain?
Sep-02-11  iroozdar: Dear MPU, thanks for "A Zapata vs Anand, 1988"
I see and I think is very funny!
Sep-02-11  iroozdar: I think after 32. … Nxb2 and then
33.Qg3 fxe6 34.Rxe6 Qg7 35.Rxg6+ Rxd5 36.Rxg7+ Rxg7 37.Qb3 Rd7 38.Qxb2 Rf5 Black has played ingeniously but he is in trouble. Black has no compensation as White’s pawn structer has’nt been damaged.
Sep-02-11  FSR: Woo hoo! Another of my puns made GOTD!
Sep-02-11  I play the Fred: Congrats!

I wish they'd reveal the punnist (punner? pun provider?) with each one of these. I know there's no contest anymore, but acknowledgment isn't really a prize. It's just to avoid confusion.

What I mean is, three of mine have won, but I don't know if the submission was really mine or if someone else provided basically same pun and it was their entry that prevailed.

Sep-02-11  FSR: <I play the Fred> Thanks! I agree with you. I've had that experience too: the GOTD has a pun that's slightly different from what I recall submitting, and I'm not sure whether the CG people edited my pun, or whether someone else submimtted the exact pun that CG used.
Sep-02-11  I play the Fred: <I agree with you.>

That, and the reverse, seems to be the case on every page except for one. Isn't politics baffling? I mean, you are one of the best posters we've got on virtually every topic, but you go onto Rogoff and you turn into a lunatic. (Kidding!)

Sep-02-11  FSR: <I play the Fred> And here I thought of you, "His views on religion are so sensible, but on politics he's nuts!" :-) Funny how one person's self-evident truths are self-evident nonsense to others. That's why Plato's Republic struck me as a ridiculous book.

Incidentally, I have exactly 100 more games I've nominated. Some of my favorites are Short vs A A Lopez, 2008 ("Short Lopez"), Chandler vs V Wolf, 1985 ("Hungary Like V. Wolf"), Martin Sinner vs N Miezis, 1997 ("Punished for His Sins"), and Alburt vs J Yuchtman, 1980 ("I'm So Sorry, Uncle Alburt").

Sep-02-11  Eduardo Bermudez: Te6 !!
