  Bishoprick: b pawn marches to victory?
Premium Chessgames Member
  tatarch: The knight is pinned for at least 3 more moves, the black bishop is tying down the queen, the b pawn cannot be stopped without significant loss of material--I certainly would have resigned at this point.

  Chessmensch: I love black's segue from a crowded defensive position early in the game to a relentless offense in the mid-game. White made some nice moves but Conquest had it all the way.

  kevin86: I have a few other puns for this one:

1 Stuart is not little.

2 Master of the House

3 House cleaning

4 Conquest at the Glenn.

Too bad the games doesn't live up to the pun-it is OK,though. Black's brave "conquest of the last row is inspiring-he even gave up a queen for the cause.

"House of cards"

I had hoped we could have obtained Conquest as our next CG Challenge opponent. We would have had a game of "World-Conquest".
