Oct-19-04  Whitehat1963: More modern ideas in the opening of the day. Who needs a bishop pair?
Oct-28-05  Maroczy: I thought his surname was Ni?
Oct-28-05  notsodeepthought: Given the nature of the endgame (see moves 30-55 or so), I suggest "the knights who say <Ni>" as the pun if this ever becomes the Game of the Day.
Premium Chessgames Member Alas, it seems that all the good puns have been used. See Bagirov vs I Nei, 1963.

Maybe you can title this one "Hua happened"!

Oct-28-05  notsodeepthought: <> Damn it...

R Dam v. Zsofia Polgar
Amsterdam, 1990


Oct-29-05  notsodeepthought: <bishopawn> Good one... I hope <> takes you up on it.
Oct-29-05  bishopawn: Help me understand Black's 23rd and 24th moves.
Aug-27-11  number 23 NBer: For the 23rd move, I'm guessing that black was planning to double his rooks on the e-file, a plan that he rethought on the 24th. It looks like 25 ♘c5! would, with the pressure on the e7-rook, be awkward to meet, as can be seen after 25...♕d8 26 ♘e6. I would definitely be uncomfortable in such a position.
