27. Kxf7 Qg6+ 28. Kf8 Qxg7+ And white can go for the kill with Qg8+ or defend his c-pawn, and is clearly winning, though the text move doesn't do much more for black.
|Nov-23-06|| ||syracrophy: I didn't found anything interesting on this game. What's the fun about losing the ♕ on move 23?|
|Nov-23-06|| ||Gowe: The idea behind 20.g5 is because after g5 black can't play Bf6.. so, i think Rh3 is a big mistake: |
Obviously, black didn't see the not so difficult move: Nc6
|Nov-23-06|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: <syracrophy> I wonder about the same.|
|Nov-23-06|| ||moiz: I think a mention must be made as to why a game is defined as "game of the day" (an unusual combination of moves, a brilliant sacrifice...), else soon enough even obscure club games will be so defined.|
|Nov-23-06|| ||Tenderfoot: This must've been a tough Pil to swallow.|
|Nov-23-06|| ||j750: <moiz>, maybe the reason why this was the "game of the day" is that today is Thanksgiving day. In this day it's usual for American people to eat turkey. So this match is the only game (a win) of a player whose name is similar to the name "turkey". IMO|
|Nov-23-06|| ||weary willy: You mean that this game is a turkey?|
|Nov-23-06|| ||macphearsome: "this game is a turkey" has a nice ring to it.
Next time I'm playing a game that isn't going well for me, I'll be sure to remark "this game is a turkey" when I knock over my king.
|Nov-23-06|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: <j750> Interesting fact. Is it usual for American people, that they eat beef, pork, chicken etc on other specific days too?|
|Nov-23-06|| ||Canuck16: <Autoreparaturwerkbau> Yes, they eat beef on Thankstaking, pork on Thankslending, and chicken on Thanksfornothing...|
|Nov-23-06|| ||chessmoron: No you fools (no offense really), anyone heard of a word called Pilgrim="Pill Grim."|
|Nov-23-06|| ||Plato: Shouldn't the opening of the day be the Bird?|
|Nov-23-06|| ||kevin86: A grim choice of games-a real turkey.
BTW-anyone remember the TV show:Turkey TV? On Nickelodian in the mid 80s
Black had to give up his queen to save a piece-how sad.
|Nov-24-06|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: <Canuck16> Lol... But, I was asking seriously.|
|Nov-26-15|| ||Penguincw: < "Pill Grim" >
Alright, fitting pun considering today is the American thanksgiving.
I'll let the GOTD fans decide if they like this pun or not...
|Nov-26-15|| ||morfishine: White just gobbled'em up|

Well, some Americans eat ham or turkey on Christmas (the cliche of the Christmas goose basically doesn't happen); many eat ham on Easter, and corned beef and cabbage might be considered traditional St. Patrick's Day fare—or, alternatively, green beer.
It's kind of traditional to barbecue on Memorial Day (May) and/or July 4, and we used to do a clambake with lobster on Labor Day.
Oh, and on Super Bowl Sunday, lots eat guacamole, nachos, and all sorts of fatty cheesy cardiac-inducing eats.
We Americans love to eat. And eat and eat. That's why, when so many of us go to weigh ourselves, the scales say "One at a time, please."
I really liked the pun today.
|Nov-26-15|| ||thegoodanarchist: Thanksgiving is also known as Turkey Day. Or is it Turkovic Day? I forget.|
|Nov-26-15|| ||perfidious: Jagged Little Pill.|
|Nov-26-15|| ||Domdaniel: <perf> - <Jagged Little Pill>.|
Much better. But let 'em eat Turkovic.
|Nov-26-15|| ||perfidious: <Dom> Turkovic likely tastes better anyway.|
|Nov-30-15|| ||kevin86: Black's walls coming tumbling down.|
