I assume that too.

<waustad: <info>He's the author of lots of them. He's a pal of the owners.>

Not really. By a great coincidence, I went to high school with one of the owners, but I didn't discover that until I'd been a member for a couple of years. Albert and I haven't seen each other for 35 years or so. This is the 37th pun of mine they've used, but I have another 168 they haven't used.

  Once: In human mode, this position grabbed my attention. Black has just played 26...Rb8

Right now, my head is spinning. Carlssen has apparently rewritten the rules by inventing a new form of centralised castling. He is relying on his twice protected Bf8 to defend his unmoved king.

This is either GM genius way above my pay grade or it's all about to go horribly wrong.

It's at this point that white uncorks 27. Bc6+ ...

... and we start to get the feeling that we are into the "all going horribly wrong" scenario. The black king is forced to abandon his Bf8 and then he ain't never gonna find a home. Not never, not nohow.

Fritzie is made of sterner stuff. He doesn't even blink at 27. Bc6+ ... you get the impression that he is not easily impressed. He does say that it is the only move in the position to give white an advantage.

Instead, his little red light flashes earlier in the game. As <Philidor> and <Morphy2010> have pointed out, 21...Nxg2 would have given equality (according to Fritz). All other moves give white an advantage of about a pawn.

But incredibly hard to see that over the board. A fabulously complicated fighting game. If Carlsen had managed to win, no doubt we would have all been talking about his brilliant plan to leave his king in the middle. As it stands, we greybeards will probably be muttering that he shoulda castled. But then if he took our advice he almost certainly wouldn't be the highest graded GM at the moment.

  FSR: <Abdel Irada> Yes, that's quite handy. For each hour of the week, I can obsess over why they haven't used a specific pun of mine. This hour it's <Dammit, why oh why haven't they used "Smoking Winston" for C Van Tilbury vs P J Winston, 1977>?

Next hour, it's <When the hell will they use "Hungary Like V. Wolf" for Chandler vs V Wolf, 1985>?!

Then, <What about "Mauled by Lyons" for K Lyons vs R Ribeiro, 2006>?

And so on.

Nov-03-12  Octal: 25 Nb5 is quite a move if it isn't already obvious.
Nov-03-12  ksanat: a wonderful game! i can play through this game over and over.

  kevin86: The game shows the great powers and mobility of the queen. If she got paid by the mile,she would have had a lawyer's salary.(or A-Rod's),whichever is higher.

  playground player: <kevin86> If the Queen was A-Rod, she would stop moving and taking pieces as soon as you entered endgame. You would have to pinch-hit for her.
Nov-03-12  The Last Straw: Carlsen probably should take better care of his king next time!

Right. White would like to play 5.e4, but that would be met by 5...b5, when White would be playing a gambit.

...

Dammit, why oh why haven't they used "Smoking Winston" for C Van Tilbury vs P J Winston, 1977?>

Say, do you remember this old commercial? One of my all-time favorites: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISeG...

  FSR: <Infohunter> I remember the slogan, and the grammatical controversy (English teachers said it should be "Winston tastes good <as> a cigarette should," moving the manufacturer to ask its addicts, er customers, whether they preferred good grammar or good taste), but not this exact commercial, which apparently aired five years before I was born. Amazing to realize that back in the day the tobacco manufacturers had the casts of <The Beverly Hillbillies> and even <The Flintstones> (!!) peddling their poison. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEx4... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NAEx...

  Infohunter: <FSR> Oh, I remember that came out in 1959. If memory serves the show that first popularized the ungrammatical internal rhyme was "I've Got a Secret" starring Gary Moore. "The Flintstones", by the way, began on ABC in 1960 as an adult-oriented animated show--an obvious knock-off of "The Honeymooners". After a couple of seasons it was realized that, because it was animated, it was appealing to kids, so they replaced Winston with such sponsors as (first) One-A-Day brand multiple vitamins and (later) Welch's grape juice.

For my taste, Winstons weren't too bad as filter cigarettes go, but I liked R.J. Reynolds' original non-filtered brand, Camels, as my number one cigarette, with the American Tobacco Company's Pall Malls as my second choice. Filter cigarettes just never appealed to me very much.

  Infohunter: I quit smoking cold turkey on Saturday, October 16, 1999, at 1:16 p.m. Funny thing is, exactly two weeks later I got my first Internet-capable computer. I never would have given that coincidence a thought had it not been for your latest comment, <FSR>. You just never know what might crop up on the pages of good old <cg>. Why, sometimes we even talk about chess!
