  Honza Cervenka: 14.Qf2 was a small mistake with fatal consequences. In the end Pf3 is going to fall with all white's position.

Jun-04-12  Oceanlake: How to join the Vera Menchik Club
Jun-04-12  Albertan: OceanLake, When in 1929, Menchik entered the Carlsbad, Viennese master Albert Becker ridiculed her entry by proposing that any player whom Menchik defeated in tournament play should be granted membership into the Vera Menchik Club. In the same tournament, Becker himself became the first member of the "club".
Jun-05-12  Cibator: Well, Willie, that'll larn you to go launching crude premature attacks (12.g4? and 13.h4?) before you've finished your development properly.

  FSR: I tried to suggest "Join the Club" as a pun for this game, but someone beat me to it. (Sob.)
