  whiteshark: <17...Ne4> looks like a better (the only) playable move here. However, there is a strong tactical continuation <18.f6 Bxf6 19.Bxh5 Rxh5 20.Qxg4+ Rg5 21.Bxg5 Bxg5 22.Qh5 Be3+ 23.Kh1 Nf6>

  Phony Benoni: Famous palindrome:

"<A man, a plan, a canal--Panama>!"

If you don't know what a palindrome is, read it backwards. And, of course, having "Suez" as part of Black's name just adds to the pun.

Jun-08-12  sevenseaman: Very opportunistic exploitation of resources to hand by White that keeps a big chunk of Black's fire power dormant.

A fine palindrome spotted by <Phony Benoni> I was sensing something like that when I hit his sharp observation.

Mrs Indira Gandhi, former prime minister of India was received at the airport by the then external affairs minister of Malaysia Mr. Adam Malik.

A sharp cross-word setter was quick on the draw next Sunday with; How palindromically the foreign minister of Malaysia greeted Mrs. Gandhi.

Madam I'm Adam.

  FSR: Dennis and Edna sinned.

A slut nixes sex in Tulsa.

Jun-08-12  pajaste: The only minus for the pun is that this isn't a Canal Attack game :-).

  Tiggler: 24...Bd6 appears to be the losing move. How might W continue against 24...Qd6?
Jun-08-12  Shams: <Tiggler> 24...Qd6 25.Ne6+! [Shredder]
Jun-08-12  goodevans: "Kay, a red nude, peeped under a yak"

This guy Gilles has such a great surname. If you saw it in a novel you'd guess it had been used for comic effect, wouldn't you?

Don't nod.

  Tiggler: <Shams: <Tiggler> 24...Qd6 25.Ne6+! [Shredder]>

Yes, I saw that, but it is better than the game continuation after 25... Kg8 (of course not 25... Bxe6).

  Eggman: Speaking of palindromes, this is surely Weird Al Yankovic's finest moment:
Jun-08-12  LoveThatJoker: Great pun and an awesome game! Most instructive!


Jun-08-12  goodevans: <Tiggler: 24...Bd6 appears to be the losing move. How might W continue against 24...Qd6?>

24...Bf6 seems to put up more resistance than either of these moves. Alternatively 24...Qf8.

  kevin86: White sacs two queen and ends two pieces AHEAD! mate will come soon-black's king is already cocooned.
Jun-08-12  bischopper: how get out if the bishops both and one piece like the king can to mate before of that the rook act...?
Jun-08-12  drpoundsign: Madam I'm Adam.

I expect an Erie Canal Sioux locks GOTD next week!
