   Jul-21-19 Grischuk vs Yu Yangyi, 2019 (replies)
thegoldenband: Did somebody say "Yu Who?"
   Jun-14-19 Younes Foughali vs C Woojin Yoo, 2016 (replies)
thegoldenband: A lot of these comments seem off-the-wall until you realize the score has been corrected (rather quickly, I might add), so that moves like 21...Qxe5 now make no sense.
   Mar-05-19 Carlsen vs Radjabov, 2012 (replies)
thegoldenband: Important note: I originally submitted this as "Who Knows <Ware> the Teim Goes?", which may not improve the pun but certainly increases its relevance. <Check It Out: <thegoldenband> is getting some serious pun credit these days. What’s the story?> Your guess ...
   Jan-16-19 Yifan Hou vs Navara, 2016
thegoldenband: Thank you, <offramp>! Some of these were submitted years ago, so it's a bit surreal (but a very nice surprise) to see them again. <morfishine>, quite right. Not sure I knew that back in 2015, but I certainly do now. Still, I'd probably grit my teeth and force the ...
   Dec-11-18 Miles vs Polugaevsky, 1984 (replies)
thegoldenband: Thanks for the compliments on my pun! I originally submitted it over 4 years ago, so it was kind of a trip to see it pop up today.
   Nov-18-18 J Deco vs J Mikita, 1993
thegoldenband: <jon01: Mate is quicker after 8. ...Qf4+ 9. Kd3 Nb4+ 10. Ke2 Qf2#> White can hold out one move longer than that with 9. Ke2 Qf2+ 10. Kd3 Nb4+ 11. Kxe4 Qf4# (or 10...Nc5+ 11. Kc3 Qd4#), but it's still two moves quicker than the game (which should end 12...Qxc4 13. Ka3 ...
   Nov-18-18 Ali G Gungor vs M Gokcek, 2008
thegoldenband: Why on earth didn't Black play 15...e4+? I can't see any obvious ways in which the game score could be wrong or ambiguous (since the QR and QN are still at home). I can only scratch my head, and that's not good for the scalp.
   Jul-31-18 Daniel Freeman (replies)
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, ...
