Nov-11-04  sneaky pete: <InspiredByMorphy> After 11... Bc5+ 12.Kh1 Rxf7 13.Bxf7+ Kxf7 14.Qh5 .. threatening both 15.Qxc5 .. and 15.f5 .. white is on top.
Nov-11-04  InspiredByMorphy: <sneaky pete> Thanks. Your right. Sneaky combination isnt it? :)

  kevin86: A quick win by white!
Jul-07-16  AlicesKnight: Another zwischenzug? - Black plays 18...ab5 expecting the loss of a minor piece in return (and it's still likely to be a White win), but instead 19.Qg3 leads to a sharper conclusion. The old adage, when you see a good move, look for a better one.....
Jul-07-16  morfishine: Anybody figure out this "play-on-word" yet? Obviously, it has nothing to do with the three stooges, so that leaves, uh, hummmm, NOTHING

Another lame-o-pun-attempt implodes and sinks silently into the depths...

  YouRang: Black was doing okay until about move 8, where he faced this position:

Here, black "castled into it" with <8...O-O?>, unwisely stepping into a bishop pin on his Pf7, which is also attacked by the Ng5.

Black also has a dangling Bb4 which is now subject to being forked by a simple tactic: Bxf7+ followed by Qb3+ (with Qxb4 to follow).

MUCH better would have been 8...h6, kicking the N away. Likely 9.Nf3 (attacking Ne5), so black could either capture (9...Nxf3) or move away (9...Nc6, guarding the Bb4). After this, ...O-O would be safer.

White smartly continued with <9.f4!>, attacking one of the defenders of the beliegered Pf7, while threatening to add more attackers.

This was followed by another poor move, <9...N5g6?>, so Pf7 loses an attacker, and white could now win with 10.Qh5!, because 10...h6 is met by 11.Nf7! Rxf7 12.Bxf7 Kxf7 13.f5! attacking the now-pinned Ng6. White will be up the exchange with a blistering attack underway.

Fortunately for black, white missed 10.Qh5, and played <10.O-O> instead.

Black may have recovered a bit with 10...d5!, blocking the LSB's attack on Pf7 long enough to kick the N with ...h6.

Alas, black misfired again with <10...h6?>, allowing the immediate tactic mentioned earlier: <11.Nxf7 Rxf7 12.Bxf7+ Kxf7 13.Qb3+>

and this forks and wins black's Bb4 (going up the exchange), while still maintaining a deadly attack.

Weird pun btw.

Weird pun btw.>

It is a reference to "The Three Stooges", who were Larry, Moe and Curly. And later, Larry, Moe and 3 or 4 other guys who were not Curly, such as Schemp, because Curly had a stroke or some sort of health issue.

Moe was famous for dishing out punishment after asking Larry or Curly or Schemp if he was "A Wise Guy, Eh?"

It seems like a weird pun because "The Three Stooges" don't get much play anymore.

  thegoodanarchist: <InspiredByMorphy: <sneaky pete> Thanks. Your right.>

Are you referring to his right hook or his right jab? Or perhaps his civil liberty?

Possessive pronoun is "your". You most likely were not referring to some possession of his that is best described as "right". Most likely you meant the contraction of "you are", which is you're.

Yes, women hate The Three Stooges and will not watch it.

Okay, it's a "three stooges" phrase, but how does one connect the three stooges to this game?

If the only connection is that this phrase signals the coming of punishment, then the pun could just as well have been "I'll be baack!".

For that matter, if <a wise guy, eh?> is a good pun for this game, then it's arguably a good pun for any game that had a winner...

Larry, <Moe> and Curly. The player with the Black pieces is Mogens <Moe>

  YouRang: Ooooh. A bit of a stretch.

The pun might be tolerable except that player-Moe was on the *receiving* end of the punishment, out of character with stooge-Moe who dished out the punishment...

But thanks for clearing up the stooges connection (such as it is) ;-)

Hey, I hear ya, man. You aren't the first to have doubts about a GOTD pun.

For another example, just see my comment on today's GOTD:

In fact, I don't even know if the stooge was named "Moe" or "Mo"
