|Jan-13-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Nice one, <FSR>!
|Jan-13-12|| ||WannaBe: <Phony Benoni> you talking about Hermann Monster Helper? From the neck up?!|
|Jan-13-12|| ||BlackSheep: The weird thing is black had a nice little edge (not winning but he had more than equalised) and could have maintained it until the disastrous exf3 if only he had played Bf6 white would have discovered his attack is just a rumour of phantoms on the board.|
|Jan-13-12|| ||Shams: <Phony Benoni> That was really funny. Plus one old boy, plus one.|
|Jan-13-12|| ||popescuag: I cannot see a win after 23. ... h5|
|Jan-13-12|| ||Sastre: 23...h5 24.Nxe7+ Qxe7 (24...Kh7 25.Bxf8) 25.Bf6+ Kh7 26.Bxe7 wins.|
|Jan-13-12|| ||FSR: Thanks, LoveThatJoker. GOTD No. 26 for me: Game Collection: Puns I submitted|
|Jan-13-12|| ||JonathanJ: <Sastre> 26.Bxe7 Rg8 27.Bg5 f6 28.h4 fxg5|
doesn't look like a white win for me
|Jan-13-12|| ||whiteshark: <FSR/Phony Benoni> Thanks for the pun and the detailed add-on explanation.|
Another detail is that <Bayer> is one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in Germany, widely known (and thus synonymous here) for the production of... pain killers http://www.bayer.com/en/Homepage.aspx

26...Rg8 27.Rxf7+ Kh8 28.Bg5 .
|Jan-13-12|| ||Penguincw: The pun, not bad. The game, not bad. :)|
|Jan-13-12|| ||goodevans: <Sastre> <JonathanJ>,|
This is indeed a win but it's not so obvious. It took me several minutes to convince myself that black didn't have sufficient defensive resources.
Also 28 Rf8 wins in similar fashion in both this line and against 23 ... h6.

That was the basis for my pun: an allusion to Bayer aspirin.
|Jan-13-12|| ||bengalcat47: Poor Bayer! he probably gets lots of jokes made about his last name, much like former baseball pitcher Eric Plunk or more recently the Alabama running back whose last name is Smelley!|
|Jan-13-12|| ||FSR: <bengalcat47> As "funny" names go, it's not too bad. There was that guy in the law school class after mine named Suk Whang, for example. See also the discussion at Peter G Large and Richard Chess.|
|Jan-13-12|| ||Chessmensch: As public school kids, we used to fill out attendance cards for the fictitious Dick Hertz and Mike Hunt and wait for the teacher to ask Who's Dick Hertz? and Where's Mike Hunt? I really did know a fellow named Dick Sard. And there actually was a horse named Long Hunt. In the racing column in the paper there was an entry that said "Long Hunt was scratched."|
|Jan-13-12|| ||FSR: <Chessmensch> http://gawker.com/5844580/mike-hunt... When I was in high school, I induced the librarian to call out, "Hugh G. Rection, is Hugh G. Rection here?" I was dying. An acquaintance of mine had an English teacher with the surname Dover. She and her husband named their son Benjamin. D'oh! See also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gag_name.|

|Jan-13-12|| ||Domdaniel: Bayer also synthesized the ultimate capitalist product, diamorphine, at the end of the 19th century. They named it 'heroin' because it made you feel like invading Poland.|
"Take two and call me every morning for the rest of your life".
Fifty years later, during World War II, Germany was cut off from the main poppy-growing areas of the world. Armies tend to consume a lot of painkillers, so the search for a synthetic opiate was on. They created a rather strong one, which was named Dolophine after Herr Hitler. It's still around, though it's called Methadone these days.
The motto of the great German chemists -- "Kraft, Standfestigkeit, Weisse" or "Strength, Stability, Whiteness" -- was sometimes mistaken for a Nazi slogan.
|Jan-13-12|| ||drpoundsign: what does the name dolophine have to do with the Fuhrer? |
Heroin was known as "non addicitve morphine." That goes down in history with Thalidomide (don't know WHO made that)
|Jan-13-12|| ||dalekrule: what is this? black had winning move h5 and instead got hit by mate in one|
|Jan-13-12|| ||chegado: Congrats to this two german fellows that had the guts to play such a dynamic Sicilian. A lot of the basic ideas and moves can be found here. Danke Jung! |
20...exf3? was terrible and lose right away.
|Jan-13-12|| ||rilkefan: <"Kraft, Standfestigkeit, Weisse" or "Strength, Stability, Whiteness">|
Maybe "Weisse" refers to beer...
Where does this motto appear?
|Jan-14-12|| ||kevin86: White sits by idly-so it seems-and lets opponent queen-before delivering the fatal blow.|
