I'm a North American, but live in Guatemala.

catlover: <offramp>'s comment gave me a chuckle as well. According to Pia Cramling's profile on, she is married to Spanish GM Juan Manuel Bellon Lopez.

catlover: By 18...Nf6+ it seems the process had gone from dibsing to bagging.

catlover: <FSR> Hilarious pun! Thanks also for your humility in punning on your own name in a game that you lost. Fred Reinfeld was a prolific chess author. His books were part of my introduction to chess.

catlover: The positional maneuvering in the first part of the game is not extremely exciting but the flurry of sacrifices in the last part of the game more than makes up for it. For those who enjoy knowing the circumstances in which the game was played and biographical information on the ...

catlover: <offramp> For what it's worth, "The Big Slab of Murrine from Differgange Kaupthing" has a much better ring to it.

catlover: <tyro1952> I believe <gypsy>'s post above at the bottom shows how Bluebaum runs out of checks.

catlover: Great GOTD. Good pun, too.
