|Nov-11-05|| ||CeeFoR: Well for a beginner like myself this one is obvious, if 23.. takes the rook, he loses his queen. If he removes his queen from the rook threat, he gets mated~|
|Jan-11-19|| ||lunchwithgina: The pun would be better if it were simply "Who'll stop Therien?". Still I wonder, still I blunder...are there are any other Credence Clearwater puns floating about?|
|Jan-11-19|| ||SamAtoms1980: Dunno about CCR, but how about Kansas? I feel slightly less embarrassed about submitting <Garry On My Wayward Run> for this refutation of the Wayward Queen Attack by Kasparov:|

|Jan-11-19|| ||AylerKupp: <lunchwithgina> My favorite GOTD pun for a game with the same player (I think), indeed my all-time favorite pun, was "I concede clearly now, Therain is gone."|
|Jan-11-19|| ||An Englishman: Good Morning: Possible CCR puns for future Games of the Day.|
If a male offspring of a GM wins a game he should have lost: "Fortunate Son."
If a woman named after the mother of Jesus Christ defeats a Super-GM: "Proud Mary."
If a ruling monarch wins a game: "Who'll Stop the Reign."
If Kurt Russell, who starred in a Western, wins a game: "Tombstone Shadow."
I can keep going, if you wish.
|Jan-11-19|| ||lunchwithgina: <SamAtoms1980> I like <Garry On My Wayward Run>, maybe a little obscure, but why not submit it?|
<An Englishman> Good suggestions--regarding your "Fortunate Son" proposal, I will look for a father-son game where the son wins....
|Jan-11-19|| ||sfm: 12.-,Lg5?? really turned out to be a surprisingly terrible move, totally losing the game.
Neat is 16.Rf4!, the precise attacking move. Black seems without any defense and after 22.Re4 the game is seriously over.|

Morphy vs Morphy would be a good place to start.

Of course. That's why the longer version was used. Believe me, there was a series debate...
|Jan-12-19|| ||ACMEKINGKRUSHER: Howdy!!!
Did anyone out there Know that this is The ONLY WIN for THERIEN in the "13" Existing games from THERIEN's BRILLIANT CHESS CAREER!

I did -- how many years ago I no longer remember.
