"I archieved my first major chess success as a 16-year-old in the East German Junior Championship in Leipzig in 1951. I ended up as a clear winner by a margin of 1.5 points, and this served as the necessary stimulus for further tournament victories.

In 1951 the French Defence was already my favourite weapon against White's opening move 1.e4. Even today I consider the following sensational game against Bialas to be a little gem in my collection."

-- Wolfgang Uhlmann, "Winning with the French"

Dec-15-09  ohfluckaduck: I don't understand what 20 Bd2 accomplishes, but I suppose it doesn't really matter, white is so totally busted. Bravura game, Uhlhmann!
Nov-16-10  chesswonder: Wow great game Sir whiteshark!Your a child prodigy! I've been studying and playing french defense because I was so fascinated by your games especially this defense. So how about encountering your french defense against Bobby Fischer? Excuse me sir, I notice that Fischer outplays your french defense. Do you still play now?

Jul-26-15  SpiritedReposte: What a beautiful display. Whites moves don't look terrible on the face of it but after ...Bxh2+! it is a slaughter.

Puns may include <Wolf of Wallstreet> or better since he was only 16(!) when he played this <Teen Wolf> or <The Boy Who Cried Wolf>. There's gotta be a double wolf pun out there too lol.
