|Dec-03-07|| ||Whitehat1963: Puns anyone?|
|Dec-03-07|| ||WannaBe: Well, 'She Bangs' is out, because Erik is a guy... Mmmm... Need some time to come up with a good one.|
|Dec-03-07|| ||Phony Benoni: If we had a complete collection of his games, would that be the whole E. Bang?|
|Dec-03-07|| ||Whitehat1963: The Big Bang?|
|Dec-03-07|| ||WannaBe: <Phony Benoni> If I had the complete collection, it'd be name "The Whole She-Bang" =)|
|Dec-04-07|| ||Calli: Perhaps a match Bang vs G Schott could be arranged?|
|Nov-18-08|| ||Cactus: 'E Bangs, 'e bangs, Oh baby.
She moves, she moves, drives me crazy.
|Mar-07-09|| ||WhiteRook48: BANG! Ouch.|
|Dec-03-09|| ||Troller: This guy was actually Correspondence World Champion (back when that meant something). Show some respect...|
|Dec-03-09|| ||Red October: Bang Bang, my pawns are down, Bang Bang my Queen is gone, Bang Bang...|
|Jan-28-13|| ||FSR: It's a shame that CG.com's database has no games by anyone named Chitty. Had such a player played Bang, their game could be <Chitty Chitty Bang Bang>. I see that one of Bang's games has already been GOTD as <Big Bang>. I have proposed <Bang! You're Dead> for E Bang vs M Umansky, 1995. Unfortunately, this guy plays way too quietly to make such puns, e.g. <Going Out With a Bang>, appropriate for many of his games. His idea of a wild sacrificial attack is giving up an exchange for a pawn.|

It doesn't appear that he was. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_... Are you Trolling? :-)
|Jan-28-13|| ||Phony Benoni: <FSR> We really need him to draw against someone named Eliot and bring in the <Not with a bang, but with a whimper> bit. He does have two short draws with Elwert, but that's not good enough.|
The last thing this database needs is a chessplayer named "Chitty". Of course, if we could Rogoff the page and keep all the off-color jokes there, it might be worth it.

Hmm, somehow the, er, difficulties with the name "Chitty" hadn't occurred to me. I suppose that all of us have played quite a few "Chitty" games.

|Dec-27-14|| ||WannaBe: Someone can find a game, where Bang went off theory, or developed a new theoretical line. |
Then the pun would be "The Big Bang Theory"
|Dec-27-14|| ||whiteshark: <WannaBe: <The Big Bang Theory>> for E Bang vs M Umansky, 1995 (20.Bxh6!!)|
|Dec-28-14|| ||WannaBe: Great <whiteshark>. Go ahead and submit that!!|
|Dec-28-14|| ||whiteshark: <WannaBe> Done. If this will ever be chosen, it'll probably be the 1st joint pun team work. ;)|
|Dec-28-14|| ||whiteshark: "Erik Bang (born October 25, 1944) has been an ICCF international master since 1974 and a grandmaster since 1979; he also played many times for Denmark 'over the board'. His wins in strong CC tournaments include the Canadian 60th Jubilee tournament and best result on top board in 8 th Correspondence Olympiad Final. He was runner-up in the 13th World Championship and before that in the Axelson Memorial. "|
