  An Englishman: Good Evening: A pun on "The Big Lebowski," but perhaps a little too tortured--much like Black's King. The position after 25.f7 is one of the more picturesque in chess history.

  ChessHigherCat: Not 24. Qxd6 because Rxb2 25.
Kxb2 Qa2+ 26. Kc1 Qxc2#, severally limiting white's subsequent choices.

  ChessHigherCat: "An Englishman: The position after 25.f7 is one of the more picturesque in chess history." I does look a bit like a blindfold game at the Alzheimer's club since black is in check and both sides have two rooks en prise

  morfishine: Quite an interesting game, so at least the quality holds up

With that said, what connection does this movie game title have with (1) chess, (2) this chess game, (3) this opening, (4) this tournament, (5) this venue, (6) any of the actors in the movie or (7) either of the chess players in this game?

Just as I figured, there's no connection whatsoever, hence as usual, we are treated to yet another epic failure of a submitted and voted on "game title"

Admittedly, these monstrous failures can be entertaining if for nothing else, the showcasing of inept stupidity lol

I wanted to join the Alzheimer's club but I can't remember where they meet. Or when...

Feb-12-17  JohnBoy: Another 200 word <morfishine> version of "You damned kids, get off my lawn!"
Feb-12-17  catlover: I think Sokolov would have done better to leave his king in the center rather than castling on move 15. He castled right into Libiszewzki's attack.

That being said, maybe Sokolov was spoiling for a wild game. Maybe he looked at the white g and h pawns and just said, "Bring it on!"

I think it's just around the corner from Shell Beach (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_...
