Aug-08-17  andrewjsacks: Excellent idea for the pun.

A rare good pun for Pink Floyd fans.

  offramp: I've never really liked Pink Floyd. I don't really like any colour Floyd.

So when it comes to the Floyd, there isn't Any Colour You Like, then...

  takchess: I recall a pun on this same song was used before. This one seems like a better fit. I saw this game live thanks to cg. The only game I saw broadcast live before this had Shelby Lyons as a announcer. 8)

Chigorin vs Znosko-Borovsky, 1903 <"Careful with Attacks, Eugene">

E Kalegin vs S Yuferov, 1990 <"Careful with that Axe, Evgenij">.

I think the 1903 game is the best pun.

  takchess: Wrong player Wrong game referenced by me above Carlsen vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017....
Aug-08-17  petemccabe: This pun is the most felicitous composition I have seen on chessgames.com.

  morfishine: I'm disappointed, I thought my Roger Waters play-on-word was at least a little bit clever

Oh well...

While I am not at all fluent in that language, indeed it does.
