  chessgames.com: Rejected pun (although certainly no worse) : "Wall to Wall Carpeting"
Nov-04-07  pawnofdoom: You could always use that pun for B Wall vs W Wall, 1969, as that game is also pretty amazing
Nov-04-07  sallom89: Bill wall has great short games which we can learn from and memorize.

this is an example of a nice and short game.

Nov-04-07  Wade Keller: Perhaps 9. Bxh7+ would have been more forced.
Nov-04-07  D4n: Ouch...that was quick.

  kevin86: Another pun:Welcome to Wall Street

or-Do I have the right site? I'm looking for chessgames.com and got the WALL STREET JOURNAL.

Mr. Gorbachev-bring down this wall!

Nov-11-07  Judah: <Q: What did one Wall say to the other? A: Meet you at the corner!>

Yes, "Meet you at the corner" would be a great pun for this game. Can puns be retroactively changed?

Feb-29-08  D.Observer: A wall falls on another wall.
Dec-10-08  WhiteRook48: ...Qd7????????????
Feb-27-09  WhiteRook48: 7.... 0-0??????
Silly blunder
Jun-30-09  kooley782: Bill Wall is my chess coach's chess coach. Very wonderful tactician. My style is very aggressive and tactical as well.

May-11-12  Llawdogg: Elder abuse.
May-18-16  SeanAzarin: A very similar game was played a generation before.

Blom vs Jensen, 1938

May-18-16  RookFile: I played over this game again at blitz mode (maybe a second per move). When I saw 7....0-0, I said: "Really?"

  OhioChessFan: Pun of the year candidate. The fact that the Queen did deliver mate in the corner makes it that much better. I see it was discussed 9 years ago with "meet" you at the corner and am surprised it took that long for the much improved "mate".

  OhioChessFan: For anyone who doesn't recognize the literary reference of the pun:

http://www.shmoop.com/for-esme-with...

May-18-16  TheTamale: I agree with <OhioChessFan>. Normally I find the puns dismissible, but this one works on so many levels.

Also, it's an stock example of the castled king getting destroyed that every French player should be familiar with.

May-18-16  AlicesKnight: <WhiteRook48> and <Rookfile> are right of course; 7... O-O is fatal; 9...Qd7 is to allow ...Ng6 after White's Qg4+ but overlooks the game line.

The population of a town in north-east UK would have no trouble with a pun for this game - Wallsend.

You surely mean, so many rooms, right?

May-18-16  TimothyLucasJaeger: @<Wade Keller> 9.♗xh7+?? ♔g7 and black would be ahead

  kevin86: White mates from the corner...so much for castling.
