  offramp: Slightly unfortunate for Mr Borya Ider, who has been the loser of a GoTD for two days in a row, equalling the record of Ringo van Flintoff.

The opening is called an "Anti-Anti-Grünfeld" AKA a Pro-Grünfeld.

  Once: A double pun! Oh, clever stuff!
Apr-01-17  Honey Blend: 42. ♕xe5+ looked ok for white, but maybe I'm missing something? Is it the fact that today's April 1st?
Apr-01-17  nalinw: Very nice sequence of puns .... reasonable game too

  drleper: Haha, can't complain about the nice double pun there on April 1st! Although I'd like to see if continue for one more day, as this one will borya; V Inkiov vs B Ider, 2012

41. is Bg1+. WK has to move and 42. Qxe5+ is not legal.

The score showed 41. ... ♗e3 when I first looked at it. Oh well.

  thegoodanarchist: I think the purpose was to have a very boring game on April Fool's day, and tell people with a pun that it isn't boring.

Then they get to move 29 and realize it is a snoozefest.

Apr-01-17  clement41: It looks as though a great deal of white's suffering comes from his relative weakness on dark squares

<Phony Benoni: Very good, <cg>. I didn't see the point for a minute or two> <HeMateMe: That's pretty good!> What are you guys going on about? Are you just talking about the pun (which I admit is pretty good) or is this game really some kind of April Fool's joke, and if so how?

I think <CG> ought to adopt your comment as the future pun for this game (if it ever runs again as GOTD).
