|Feb-01-08|| ||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> |

|Jun-08-12|| ||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.

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 :-).|

|Jun-08-12|| ||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?
|Jun-08-12|| ||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).
|Jun-08-12|| ||Eggman: Speaking of palindromes, this is surely Weird Al Yankovic's finest moment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nej4....|
|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.

|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!
