|Mar-09-11|| ||tpstar: White orchestrated a nice Kingside attack.|
|Mar-09-11|| ||andrewjsacks: I agree, tpstar. His pieces coordinated harmoniously.|
|Mar-09-11|| ||HeMateMe: Minor key pieces can be a thematic struggle. Yet, the diva in this production concludes with a jauntily travelled aria. |
A checkered tour of possibilities, I should think.
|Apr-02-12|| ||haydn20: Classical development with a whirlwind coda!|
|Feb-18-13|| ||FSR: Unraveled.|
|May-07-13|| ||chessready100: Kazzak: He sure was. Prokofiev beat Capablanca, with black, in the endgame. |
Yes, but it was a simul
|May-30-15|| ||Phony Benoni: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lo...|
I'm kind of surprised this got picked, thinking the reference would not be well known.
But don't worry about that, and just enjoy the game. It's a fun one.
|May-30-15|| ||profK: Maurice was just a 'Ravel without a cause!' A poor pun.|
|May-30-15|| ||rollingrook5: White was a Mahler of the kingside.|
|May-30-15|| ||rollingrook5: Black had heard of Lizst but here he's just dead Lozst.|
|May-30-15|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: A pun worthy of the game and a game worthy of the pun.|
|May-30-15|| ||piltdown man: The pun of the year! Sublime!|
|May-30-15|| ||morfishine: Good Game
<piltdown man: The pun of the year! Sublime!> LOL thats a good one
|May-30-15|| ||piltdown man: Thank you!|
|May-30-15|| ||Abdel Irada: A pity Black couldn't Handel the position a bit better, but I suppose he never had time to compose himself before he found himself run over by a troika.|
"Romance," where is thy Sting?
|May-30-15|| ||kevin86: Mate and a nice one! No rhapsody needed.|
|May-30-15|| ||playground player: Rats, all the good puns have been used already.
As consolation, Ravel got to have his music team up with Bo Derek.
|May-30-15|| ||sfm: Black's mauricious intents was beaten out of time by White's prokofiecient attack.|
|May-30-15|| ||maxi: Prokofiev's Rook sac on h8 to gain a bar is very appealing.|
|May-30-15|| ||Domdaniel: Limericks...
"There once was a player named Liszt
Whose combos no-one could resist
When his Queen crossed the board
Nobody could be bored
And now that he's gone he is miszt."
"The pawns are the soul of the game"
Said Philidor, trying for fame
Some are doubled, it's true
And some stand in a queue
But a pawn mass still conquers a Dame.
"Some Romantic players were dim, so
Their drastic maneuvers were grim, so
But hypermodernist style
Conquered rank and file
All thanks to the genius of Nimzo."
|May-30-15|| ||Domdaniel: <Abdel Irada>
"It is curious that Handel
Always used a candle
Men of his stamp
Generally use a lamp."
<"Romance," where is thy Sting? >
-- "Sting, where is thy Death?"
(A Tantric Policeperson Aphorism...)
|May-30-15|| ||Phony Benoni: That nonmelacholy Dane, Larsen,
Saw no need go through a parson.
He went straight to the Top
And asked Fischer to stop
His plunge into eternal arson.
|May-30-15|| ||perfidious: A request Robert James saw not fit to grant, consigning him to eternal perdition in bageldom.|
|May-31-15|| ||Moszkowski012273: 19.Rdh1... is no good. Lets black back in the game.|
|Jun-10-15|| ||Alex Schindler: If romantic chess is characterized by aggressive sacrificial play, what's impressionistic chess? Apart from getting mated by prokofiev I mean. |
At the end it looked like ravel got hit by a whole-ton(e) of bricks. I guess chess wasn't his forte, allowing his opponent's major and minor pieces into a single composition. As soon as the position got sharp, ravel's defense fell flat.
