Lieve pion op a5

Mooi klein ding, randpion ben je, niet meer dan één veldje mag je bestrijken. Je bent zo klein, bijna niets, en je hebt de hele partij daar op je plaatsje gestaan, maar al die tijd was mijn hoop op jou gebouwd en al mijn angstig hunkeren was voor jou. Ik zag je wel, zoals je daar stond, kleine bengel. De mensen dachten natuurlijk dat het om de pion op d5 ging, hij trok hun aandacht, ja ze keken alleen naar hem, maar jij en ik wisten het wel, het ging om jou, om jou en jou alleen.

Je hebt gewacht, stouterd, je hebt je niet opgedrongen, want je wist dat ik al die tijd alleen maar aan jou dacht en dat je niets hoefde te doen, want dat ik vanzelf wel bij je zou komen. Kleine randpion, je bent nu vrij. Ga je gang, op a8 wacht jou en mij de onuitsprekelijke heerlijkheid. Heb mijn dank, klein lief ding. Ik heb je lief,

je Koning.

Sep-20-08  ToTheDeath: Donner's tribute to the "sweet little thing"- the a pawn.

Velimirovic is one of those ultra-sharp players that outplays Donner here in the middlegame, only to show poor technique and allow White's active king to turn the tables beautifully- with the help of that sweet little thing on a5, of course.
