|Dec-21-08|| ||WhiteRook48: There was also another NN-E Canal game. NN got checkmated in 9 moves with some removing the guard thing|
|Feb-02-09|| ||patzer2: After 10...0-0-0??, White's 11. axb4!! sets up a Boden's mate pattern following 12...Qxh1 and 13. Qxc6+!|
|Sep-03-09|| ||Whitehat1963: Excellent Monday puzzle after 12...Qxh1.|
|Mar-15-10|| ||Dr. Siggy: Dr. Siegbert Tarrasch, "The Game of Chess", english transl., London 1934, pages 181-2: - "The castled position on the Queen's side is subject to some dangers to which that on the King's side is not. [...] A particular danger for a King castled on the Queen's side is the presence of a hostile Bishop at f4(f5) [...]" as in this game after 10... 0-0-0?? "In such a position the King is frequently exposed to the typical surprise attack 1. Qxc6+ bxc6 2. Ba6#."|
|Mar-15-10|| ||GravityWave: On a clover, if alive, erupts a vast pure evil, a fire volcano.|
|Oct-26-10|| ||SirChrislov: Another cool double rook sac: Carlos Torre vs E Z Adams, 1920|

|Oct-26-10|| ||Jim Bartle: Another, from Tal: Tal vs T Paehtz Sr, 1974|
Black didn't take the second rook, seeing disaster, but it didn't help.
|Jan-20-11|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: very nice chessgame !!|
|Apr-02-11|| ||kevin86: a man,a plan,a canal:Panama---is a palindrome.|
|Apr-02-11|| ||Penguincw: Wow.Esteban Canal had to sac all his major pieces to win.In Anderssen vs Kieseritzky, 1851 , Adolf Anderssen had to sac all 3 of his heavy pieces and a bishop to win.Just wonderful games.|
|May-24-11|| ||Llawdogg: Wow! Beautiful! Brilliant!|
|May-24-11|| ||sevenseaman: "A Man, a Plan, a Canal", of tears!|

|Aug-22-11|| ||sevenseaman: Beauty sometimes comes in a surprise little package that leaves you stunned, glued to the spot in an everlasting reverie.|
|Jan-21-12|| ||Infohunter: Chernev writes, "A man might play a million game of chess and not duplicate Canal's feat." But I think this one qualifies: NN vs E J Diemer, 1978.|
|May-11-12|| ||vinidivici: wow, i dont know if canal planned this or not.after white 11.axb4 there is no place for queen at the a file, so he took the rook and BANG, discovered attack from another rook. theres no way to stop white mate progress.|
and if after axb4, black queen takes the b4 pawn, white next move 12. Rxa7 will make everything worse for black
|May-14-12|| ||Llawdogg: Both rooks, the queen, and crisscrossing bishops!|
|Jun-11-12|| ||YoungEd: Something's Boden ill for Black.|

2.exd5 is not forced, (2.e5 and 2.Nc3)
|Sep-18-12|| ||Phony Benoni: A man, a plan, a cat, a ham, a yak, a yam, a hat, a canal-Panama!|
|Aug-25-13|| ||offramp: PEverything about this game is superb. <White rook 48>'s annotations are perfect. Phoney Benoni's comment is brilliant, the pun is very clever... What more can one want?|
Thanks to <fairy queen> for directing me here.
|Jan-06-14|| ||mjmorri: After 10...0-0-0??, Canal's mouth must have been watering.|
|Jan-06-14|| ||perfidious: <e4 resigns: 2.exd5 is not forced, (2.e5 and 2.Nc3)>|
Of course not, though it is the most testing and stronger than the alternatives proposed by yourself.
Mr Boden came calling this day against the immortal NN, who thus bequeathed the world another miniature.
|Jun-26-14|| ||Bruce Graham: Is this the record for the most sacrificed in the shortest game? I can't find anything shorter.|
