  Richard Taylor: Nice break through by Court! Amusing way to resign by Phillips! This game is annotated some where. I have played though it with the notes. Also I should be able to get a photo of him and Phillips.

  Once: A funny game. White keeps on playing tactics based on checks. Just about every pawn that he wins is because black is forced to deal with a white check.

Meanwhile, black finds that he can hardly land a single check on the white king.

He does get to play 62...Qc1+, but after 63. Kb3 ...

... black finds that he can't play another sensible check.

The only other time that black can play a check is as a few spite checks before the end.

  kevin86: funny game: white picks up pawns and wins with them.

Is it contempt of Court if i say that his opponent was lousy?!

  johnlspouge: Stockfish confirms that 47.Rxe6 (+15) is stronger than 47.Bxe6+ (+4).

The threat of discovered check is sometimes stronger than a check.

  Penguincw: Honestly, is 77...Qd5+ really necessary?

  morfishine: Courting Disaster
Sep-11-14  1shooter: From about move 48 on is all hopeless so in falling in line that that mode of thought 77...Qd5+ is almost needed.

A bad bishop is a bad game.
