|Mar-27-10|| ||Dr. Siggy: A remarkable example of William Winter's chess talents, particularly as a (fine) strategist. Without doubt, one of his best games: it repays study.|
|Feb-18-13|| ||FSR: The Winter of Our Discontent.|
|Jun-01-16|| ||Penguincw: Congrats <FSR> on pun #95. Approaching the century mark!|
Game Collection: Puns I submitted
|Jun-01-16|| ||FSR: Thanks, <Penguincw>! Counting 'em down . . . .|
|Jun-01-16|| ||offramp: I thought I'd seen this one before, but it was Portisch vs Pinter, 1984 where someone suggested "Pinter of Discontent", which was pretty good. |
For Fine vs W Winter, 1936 (kibitz #6) Benzol suggested the slightly different, ""Now is the winter of our discontent", which is probably too wordy.
Sem, for Bronstein vs W Winter, 1946 (kibitz #4), suggested "Bronstein: The Winter of our discontent" but that was definitely too long.
Tecnical Draw was actually the first in: at W Winter vs Capablanca, 1936 (kibitz #5) he had "For white it was the Winter of his discontent." More of a straightforward comment than a suggestion.
Whitehat, at W Winter vs Capablanca, 1919 (kibitz #3), thought of "Now is the Winter of his discontent ..." but that is not snappy enough.
|Jun-01-16|| ||Sularus: nice one, FSR|
|Jun-01-16|| ||piltdown man: Wasn't Winter a Commie?|
|Jun-01-16|| ||offramp: Winter's a Commie, the goose is getting fat.|
|Jun-01-16|| ||mjmorri: White's light squared Bishop really dominated at the end of the game. Would Black have been better served by getting rid of it with 20...Bxe4, 21. Qxe4, g6.? The Black King is still under pressure, but his fortress seems a bit more secure than in the game.|
|Jun-01-16|| ||Castleinthesky: Good game, but black could have resigned ten moves earlier, when he was two pawns down and the game was obviously lost.|
|Jun-01-16|| ||posoo: dos ANYBODY kno wat CASTE Mir Sults was in?!|
|Jun-01-16|| ||kevin86: White's pieces, especially the bishop and queen, hound black's king to death...|
|Jun-01-16|| ||The Kings Domain: Notable game, and skillful play by both sides.|
|Jun-01-16|| ||TheTamale: Shouldn't it be "The Winter of our Diskahntent"? Or is that just ruining a good pun...?|
|Jun-01-16|| ||TheFocus: I remember last July when I bought some tents on sale, really cheap.|
The first night it rained, I discovered why the tents were so cheap. It poured buckets on us all, soaking every sleeping bag. We really had a horrible time and my family blamed it all on me.
I now refer to it the summer of our discount tents.
|Jun-01-16|| ||Mendrys: <TheFocus: I now refer to it the summer of our discount tents> Now that's funny! Given the deluge of checks that Sultan Khan had to endure before resigning it sorta fits the game too.|
|Jun-01-16|| ||offramp: Posoo, Khan was an Untouchable.|
|Jun-01-16|| ||jith1207: <posoo> Mir Sultan Khan, as each of his name suggests, was a Muslim. And, they don't care about castes. Though some of the contemporaries and of his age had some castes just like the 12 tribes of Old Testament, and some parts in India practicing untouchability in the past, it could have been possible that he endured or had been associated with a particular caste. But, that concept has become obsolete with respect to treating anyone badly in most parts of the country, it is considered sensitive to ask such questions. Not because people are afraid to visit the bad past but because people do not want to do such activities in the future.|
|Jun-03-16|| ||The Kings Domain: It's too bad Khan was a servant most of his life. He could have been world champion had he continued with Chess.|
