|Dec-09-11|| ||Sho: I think Mr. Daniel Rensch has a name with good pun-potential: gut rensching, monkey rensch, rensched out, dude Rensch, a Rensch-style House, ?.|
However, finding good puns is different from recognizing good games. I'd leave it up to someone else to connect the two.
Also, Daniel Rensch narrates instructional chess videos for kids--good for him.

Not everyone's cup of tea I'd imagine, but I find it amusing and mildly instructive.
