Jun-22-16  Razgriz: Wow. Wow. Woooooooow. What a game. White traded pieces off of the board early on and then he masterfully jumped knights across the board.

What an attack.

Yes. Today's pun for this excellent game is based on the title of a song by the popular English beat combo Pink Floyd. It is an allegro waltz played with a fiddle, banjo and washboard.

  piltdown man: Wonderful pun, even if the youngies amongst us won't get it.
Jun-22-16  optimuswise: Awesome game!
Jun-22-16  greenfield67: Can someone tell me why not 22...Nd7? I'm assuming from 22...a5 that 23. Qxb4 was the threat, but Black looks to be hanging on.
Jun-22-16  morfishine: <offramp> Did you notice Waters has a burning cigarette wedged into the 12th fret on his bass guitar? Although the music video is 7 minutes 43 seconds long, this burning cigarette remains the exact same length the entire time

scares the bajeezuz out of me just thinking about it

Jun-22-16  LoveThatJoker: Gorgeous game and great pun!

Pink Floyd for sure.

  OhioChessFan: <green> if 22....Nd7, then 23. Qf4 threatens mate on c7.

Then Black has the awful choice between 23..Qd8, losing the Queen, or 23...Ne5, when 24. Qxb4 creates a whole new set of problems for Black. There's no way he will survive 2 Knights and a Queen with free reign on the Queenside.

  OhioChessFan: The point of 22...a5 was to protect the b4 Pawn and also allow Ra7 as a bit of defense to the weak c7 square.

It stayed the same length because he was being careful with his ash, <morfishine>.

  catlover: This game reminds me of some of Ronda Rousey's MMA bouts. White dominates the game from early on, throwing pawn after pawn to keep black against the ropes. Black is groggy and confused by the Queen and Knights dancing around as white wins back material and forces black into a corner. Finally, the Queen and Rook put the armbar on black's king and he has to tap out..er, resign.

Jun-22-16  AlicesKnight: The repeated sacrifices (especially 20.Re6) are remarkable. I thought some of the games by Victor Tietz were the epitome of such repetition (cf. Tietz-Schwalb, Carlsbad, 1900, not apparently in the CG database), but this one is very good.

  kevin86: The knights and queen chased black's king away to his doom.
Jun-22-16  Steve.Patzer: Interesting game

Great pun! Ummagumma!

  HeMateMe: makes me want to be a small, fury animal--grooving on a pick!
Jun-22-16  Moszkowski012273: Yeah 26...Qe7 or 26...Qg6 would of held for black.
Jun-26-16  paavoh: An amazing game!!
Sep-06-16  ughaibu: AlicesKnight: Neither name appears in the player directory and there are no games from the event on the year page. Are you sure the details are correct?
Aug-08-17  newzild: A remarkable display of artistry.

By move 19, White has sacrificed four pawns. Black's King and Queen have traded places and his four other pieces are on their original squares!

  ChessHigherCat: 20. Re6 alone was enough to deserve a brilliancy prize. The king was completely paralyzed by the knights, like one of those horrible (k)nightmares where you can't move your body.

  GrahamClayton: How does White prosecute the attack after 18....♘xc6? 19. ♘c5 ♕c8 and I can't see a forcing move for White.
