   Oct-08-17 Karpov vs Azmaiparashvili, 1983 (replies)
thegoldenband: Thanks, <perfidious>. I seem to remember some early-1990s analysis by John Nunn that established 10...b5 as unsound, though of course the basic idea clearly has merit. If more recent analysis has revived it, that's fun to hear. My other point was that maybe something in ...
   Sep-16-17 Adams vs Short, 1992
thegoldenband: No checks please, we're British.
   Sep-12-17 F Rhine vs D Burris, 1997 (replies)
thegoldenband: Top-shelf pun!
   Aug-20-17 Deep Fritz vs BlackMamba, 2015 (replies)
thegoldenband: Saw and chose 31. Nd5, but thought the follow-up would be a rook or queen move to the c-file, not a direct exchange sac on c7.
   Aug-20-17 Fine vs Prins, 1936 (replies)
thegoldenband: If this is an edited version of my pun, I submitted it as "Don't Forget to Check the Fine, Prins". Why? Because in the whole game Prins never once puts Fine's King in check (and he doesn't even have a legal check available for the first 27 moves of the game), though in the ...
   Aug-08-17 Acs vs Degraeve, 2008 (replies)
thegoldenband: <offramp: I've never really liked Pink Floyd. I don't really like any colour Floyd.> So when it comes to the Floyd, there isn't Any Colour You Like, then...
   Aug-02-17 F Thorbergsson vs Tal, 1964 (replies)
thegoldenband: OK, that pun got a chuckle out of me. Well done.
   Jul-07-17 Carlsen vs Wei Yi, 2016 (replies)
thegoldenband: <WannaBe: Worst pun ever, I demand to know who came up with this, so we can nominate it for Caissar come January.> *raises hand* BTW "Pins Alburt in a Kann" was mine. In fact until today I totally overlooked that it was used for a GOTD, let alone that it won a Caissar!
   Jun-28-17 Salov vs Smyslov, 1988 (replies)
thegoldenband: Heh, nice pun. I found myself thinking of Salov the other day for the first time in ages, wondering what he'd been up to -- and promptly fell down a rabbit hole discovering the answer to that question...
   Apr-22-17 Polugaevsky vs Lutikov, 1968
thegoldenband: <morfishine: Whats cruel is the author forgetting to do his/her homework.> I don't think there <is> an author to this pun, unless it's the staff. I certainly don't view it as my pun, since if they used my submission as the basis for it, both the ...
