  An Englishman: Good Evening: A Stern rebuke. Not feeling certain of the soundness of Black's attack starting with 25...Re1 (if sound, a Sunday puzzle some day), but this look rather difficult to refute OTB.

  Richard Taylor: Yes, beautiful attack by Navara.

  Richard Taylor: Ah, I and <An Englishman> commented thus and <> put it up!

  offramp: 4. Bd2 and then 15. Be1, 17. Bb4, 18. Bc3, 19. Be1. It's a bit of a timewaster.

  offramp: The pun might have been better as <Navara Gain>. But I think that Navara, like poor old Nigel Short, has been done to death in the GoTD dept.

Stockfish indicates that 25...Rxe1 is the best move, with an evaluation of about -2.5 (for White) at 33 plies. All our attacks should be so speculative.

  AylerKupp: Unusual play by both sides. I don't remember ever seeing a fianchettoed DSB in a Nimzoindian before! But great play by Navara to finish the game.

And "Navara Again" is not a bad pun. But I think that "Navara Say Navara Again" would have been even better.

WWII movie.

  Willber G: Allowance made for the play on words.
