thegoldenband: Thanks, Daniel, for all that you've done for us and for the world. The last sentence of Middlemarch comes to mind -- but with one exception: it's clear you'll be long remembered, and long missed.
   May-28-18 L A Schneider vs O Moen, 1981
thegoldenband: 26...♕d5 would win, but Black succumbs to a pawn grab first and plays his queen to d5 one move too late!
   Apr-07-18 Vidmar vs Euwe, 1929 (replies)
thegoldenband: "Er-veh", more or less, isn't it? See 20 seconds in here: Apparently saying "nervous" without the first and last letters is a reasonable approximation. (And that's probably how Eric Cartman would pronounce "over" mid-tantrum: "But, ...
   Jan-11-18 V Frenkel vs B Wall, 1988
thegoldenband: "Does anybody here remember Vera's win?" - The Wall

   Nov-04-17 Deep Thought vs Bebe, 1990 (replies)
thegoldenband: "Nobody puts Bebe in a corner!"
   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.
