  An Englishman: Good Evening: Pity we don't know Wessel's first name; Black deserves full immortality for such a nice combination.

  Scuvy: If I recall correctly, this is one of the games given in "How to Think Ahead in Chess" by Horowitz and Reinfeld. Of course, their book was written some years before the Yugoslav Attack (f3 plus Bc4 for White) became highly popular.

  WannaBe: Be really funny if the white player's name is Pavel Chekov.
Jun-09-19  Ilkka Salonen: A very relevant pun in these times, when I feel the CIA might be exploiting the fact that US foreign policy is partly a geriatric case.

  playground player: Chekov (to police officer): "Can you tell me where the nuclear wessels are?"
