Mar-13-07  MrPatzer: 22...O-O+ and White resigns. How often do you see that?
Jul-17-16  Ultra: Tis an uncommon ending!
Jul-17-16  Doniez: What a brilliant final move!

  offramp: The pun is based on my favourite Norman Wisdom film, in which he plays a downtrodden 1.P-K4 player who wins a golden ticket to a QGD theme tournament. Going into the last round he has 35⅐ out of 38 and must defeat bearded Mr Gander to take first prize.


He wins!! Hooray!

  TheTamale: My brain hasn't kicked into gear yet this morning. In any event, I can't see the follow-up. Can anyone assist?

  perfidious: <TheTamale....I can't see the follow-up. Can anyone assist?>

On 23.Ke2, 23....Rxf1 24.Kxf1 Rf8+ 25.Ke1 Rxg2 looks convincing.

Jul-17-16  morfishine: <offramp> Well, its enlightening to read the Norman Wisdom story, but I think the extent of this pun is centered on geese, or more precisely, being "goosed"

but I may be wrong, who knows, I really don't give a flock


Jul-17-16  RandomVisitor: Clearly, white needs to respond precisely to 6...h5. Perhaps Komodo can suggest a good approach:

  kevin86: I've rarely seen Castles followed by resigns, but I HAVE seen Castles mate...and even a case of castles check---interposition double check and mate next move.
