  thegoodanarchist: Why resign on move 22? Why not at least play 22...gxf6 and make White prove he knows what he is doing?

The only move to save the queen is 23...Qb8, whereupon either 24.Qh6 or 24.Nxf6+ both mate in short order.

Indeed, if Black wanted to play on the rook should not be taken, when White has two bishops for a rook and attacking prospects. Still would have been worth at least a token effort.

dominant outpost,
strucural damage,
mating net
Jan-27-16  goodevans: All of white's pieces are crucial to the win in the final position. If it wasn't for white's Be2 then ...Nc4 would save the day for black.

  TheTamale: Once again, <PhonyBenoni> to the rescue of patzers like me. Thanks, PB. Looks like if Black just decides to surrender the queen, he's still down a piece. Oh, nope--White wouldn't even bother taking; looks like mate is still on the table. And I thought White just didn't like rooks.

Was that someone you?

Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <WammaBe> It was me. Sorry about that; I wasn't aware it was your idea.

This pun submitting gets weird sometimes. I've sent in quite a few I considered classically good, only to have them ignored. (Happens to everybody, I'm sure.) This one, which I consider adequate but hardly memorable, was submitted on Monday and hit Broadway on Wednesday!

Go figure.

  AylerKupp: <Phony Benoni> Stop submitting puns on Monday! The <> staff is tired and not thinking straight after a weekend of partying, so their judgement is impaired. Actually, I'm just jealous that they don't invite me to them. I would fit right in since my judgement is usually impaired, party or no party. :-)
Jan-27-16  mruknowwho: I guess Black didn't anticipate 20.Rxf6. The warning signs are there; everything is aimed at the king side, but I guess he either didn't see it or perhaps he miscalculated.

  WannaBe: <Phony Benoni> No biggie, I was making the comment that he was a "Rear Admiraal", because of Tata Group B performance. =)

I nominate this for funniest post of 2016. and <WB> for funniest commentator.
