  LawrenceBernstein: Final position is not exactly "a matter of technique" for many amateurs.

If ...41. Kg7

42.f5 following by a rook lift provides the coup de grace.

Jan-20-13  Abdel Irada: Ah. The a-pawn from h-e-double-toothpicks rears its little round head once more, sowing terror and confusion in the enemy ranks.
Jan-20-13  morfishine: Great Game, not so great pun...
Jan-20-13  Abdel Irada: "Get your car in Giri"?

  FSR: What is Car Giri Shift? I tried Googling <Calgary Shift> and got:

<Shift Calgary

Shift provides support services to adults currently and formerly working in the sex industry to improve their quality of life and achieve individualized goals.>

I'm thinking that the pun probably is not a reference to that. Oh - Car Gear Shift - some sort of allusion to driving a stick-shift car - is that it? Pretty strange one.

  HeMateMe: ...well, maybe Giri has been moonlighting?
Jan-20-13  newzild: A laboured pun but Caruana's imaginative piece sac is well worth the price of admission.

Gotta do something to pay the bills.

Jan-20-13  morfishine: Fantastic game in that White sac'd a piece for 2-pawns, then picked up another, then another, then another until poor Black, still up a piece at the end, had lost all his pawns save one. It was like the old Pac-Man game, just munching pawns at will....get out of the way!

Definite collection game

Jan-20-13  hms123: <morfishine>

Here's a fantastic possibility courtesy of Houdini:

Chess is amazing.

Jan-20-13  pescau: Nice and instructive game.

Maybe "no pawn intended" could be appropriate, although surely it has been used before.

Cheers.

Jan-20-13  morfishine: <hms123> That is a fantastic line! Great find!
Jan-20-13  12.12.12: nice one, <hms123>

  kevin86: Seven Pawns to one! WOW!
Feb-27-13  donehung: What a beat down.
Giri is starting to remind me off Topalov, in that he seems to be on the receiving end off a few peoples "immortal games"

What a sad pun though lol
maybe something like "Queen side steel"
cheers

Feb-28-13  achieve: <donehung> You could do with dropping an 'f' off of 'off' in the type of sentence you typed. ;)

  perfidious: <HeMateMe: ...well, maybe Giri has been moonlighting?>

With his most attractive girl friend, he has got to keep the dough coming in, by hook or crook.

Jan-20-14  Jambow: Thing is Caruana just kept creating new and innovative ways to win all over the board. He could have stopped and followed through on several different plans and won the game a completely different way. Master piece no doubt.
Jan-23-14  Jambow: Seems after looking a second time Giri should have been trading down early on instead of leaving Caruana so many options and so much control over the board. Maybe he still would lose but this strategy looked hopeless.
Jan-24-14  Absentee: Wow. What a wonderful game.
Feb-20-16  Turtle3: <Slav Defense: Quiet Variation> Not very quiet!!!!
