  offramp: Quite a funny pun and very good game.
Jul-03-15  mruknowwho: This was a good game. My take was that Black's game plan was based on queen side control. I think White should have responded to this idea by taking what Black gave him, which was the center. Instead, he tried to challenge Black's control of the queen side directly, and I think that got him into trouble.
Jul-03-15  sydbarrett: Wait, there's a funny pun involved here?? lol
Jul-03-15  kamagong24: simply amazing!
Jul-03-15  sydbarrett: The game itself is a breathtaking sequence indeed. Worthy of the name "immortal." I'll need to spend a few minutes on the final combo to understand it better.
Jul-03-15  Ayaend: Waaaw this game is very cool to see!! All sac for found the win! White pieces block the king escape .... Very plaisant to look a game like this <3

  Domdaniel: A true Uruguayan Immortal: it even lasts for exactly thirty-three moves -- isn't 33 a significant number in Uruguay?

<perfidious>, there's one * missing in your self-censored word: "bleep" contains 5 letters!

  Domdaniel: <LucB> -- <"bleep" contains 5 letters!> True, but there are 4 letters in "heck" ... as in the phrase "all-out thermonuclear heck" which was reportedly threatened by an American president who would rather blow up the world than use 'bad' language ...
Jul-03-15  Mating Net: Fantastic game. I see many similarites to this famous classic Rotlewi vs Rubinstein, 1907.

  morfishine: A great game! Very exciting and what I look for in GOTD

<offramp> Why is the pun funny? I have nothing against the title, but it seems like a pretty straightforward title to me, which is appropriate, but not necessarily funny, or even a pun...unless you are being your sarcastic self again

  LucB: <... as in the phrase "all-out thermonuclear heck">

That's a good one... :D Was it Johnson who said that?

<perf> yeah, 'hail' would have been good!

<52.gxh4+ Kxf4 53.Qc4+ Ke3+ 54.Kh3 Kf2+ 55.Qxb3 Ng5+ 0-1>

An unusual and beautiful finish which deserves to be much better known,

  Domdaniel: <LucB> -- < "all-out thermonuclear heck"... Was it Johnson who said that?> Truman, I think. But it may not be a true story. Apocryphal in more than one sense.
