  Jimfromprovidence: 58 with black to play is kind of puzzle-like.

If 58...Bh3 59 d7, for example, then 59...Rg2+ wins.

  keypusher: According to this source the great majority of the world's Copies are found in France, with USA second and Argentina third.

So the winner of this game is presumably of French extraction.

In lowercase, "copie" is an ordinary French word, meaning (drum roll) "copy," n. as in "hard copy" and it is also a form of the verb "copier." "Copie" has two syllables, not three, except for the past participle of copier, which is copie with an acute accent over the "e."

http://www.wordreference.com/fres/c...

I assume the surname is also pronounced with two syllables in French, unless it also has an accent on the last vowel. "ie" is not a common word ending in Spanish in my experience (Spanish for copy (n.) is "copia" for example), so I don't know how they'd say Copie in Argentina. But I'd guess they'd say it the same way the French do.

Anyway, we have some native Spanish speakers on the site, and even some Argentinians, so maybe they can weigh in, unless they're too enraged by the pun.

"Copie" (n.) is not borrowed from English, incidentally; it's derived from Latin "copia", meaning plenty, abundance, a sense which survives in our "copious."

Nice game.

I had to look it up. Elmer's glue is unknown in Europe.

However, having looked it up, and replaced glue for paste, and looked again at your original post, I let out a long huge roar of laughter that gave me a stitch and prevented me from sleeping all night.

Good one!

In a Pirc, Nf6 happens earlier.
