  Phony Benoni: <Tridel: I didn't Know that you can rename a game that has a pun. This one used to be called "Simultaneity Paradox" if I recall correctly because they both offered their queen.>

Not to mention that the pun has also been used before: Capablanca vs J Baca Arus, 1912

  Phony Benoni: And if you're really into weird words, try http://jeff560.tripod.com/words.html. Section 6 covers words with five/six vowels in order, among other things.

I might point out that the word <supercAlifragilisticExpIalidOcioUs> has all five vowels in order, since nobody specified there couldn't be another vowel or two interspersed. But that would be facetious.

  Jim Bartle: "Long live Musorgsky!"

Miller's position did come to look like a Hut on Fowl's Legs.

  Marmot PFL: Not bad for a simul, but nothing special as a Tal game. The queen sac wasn't that hard to see and was only queen for rook.
Jun-18-12  WhiteRook48: For a regular game, absolute genius. For a Tal game, completely normal.
Jun-18-12  Mladja: Beautiful game.Mikhail Tal achieved The highest level of this game.

"I approve this adverb."

May-26-13  papagan: Would 19... Qc6, instead of 19... Qd6, have left Miller with the advantage?

Yes. See Dvoretsky's analysis of the game : http://www.chesscafe.com/text/dvore...

  thegoodanarchist: "Pictures at an Exhibition" sounds like old-time cartoon music.

Aug-11-13  ughaibu: Okay, I see what you mean: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4jd... Any aesthetic realists capable of separating them?

  thegoodanarchist: <ughaibu> I think it even may have been used for old cartoons! It sounds familiar, and I don't go to many classical music recitals but as a child I watched many cartoons.

Try here:

and scroll down to "Gnomus" and give it a read.
