Duque Roquero: Excellent quote! I don't understand people who like to be killed like a rat in a kitchen instead of resigning just when the situation have turned hopeless. <Rook e2> Read carefully. It says: without sufficient compensation. Obviously time trouble is one kind of ...

Duque Roquero: Fischer random!!!
 
   Feb-06-12 S Pla vs C Cranbourne, 1981
 
Duque Roquero: Very nice finish by Pla. After 27...Qc6 28.Rxe8, black has no escape... The black queen can't take the rook because of 29.Rd8! (obviously if 28...Nxe8, 29.Qf8#). And Ng8 will be met by 29.Rxg8 Kxg8, 30.Qd8+ and mate on the next move.

Duque Roquero: CG: As I've said before, its clear that many users enjoy the pun contest and many others not at all. I suggest to divide this section into two: "Game of the Day" (always a great game of chess) and "Pun of the Day" (any game in your database with a clever pun). Thank you.

Duque Roquero: Maybe Ivanchuc wanted to castle his king and promote him.

Duque Roquero: <cannibal> Thanks for your analysis. That line you found is very interesting. After 57Kg2! White plays 58. Qb2+ (forced) and then 58Qxb2; 59.h3 Qf2# (or Qh8#) .
