  GrahamClayton: 13...♘f5 planning 14...♘d4 removes a key defender of f7, allowing White to play the powerful sacrifice 14.♘f7!.

Wolff's position was difficult, eg 13...♕d7 14. ♖c1 with pressure against c5, or 13...♘d7 14. ♘c6 ♗xc6 15. dxc6 ♘b6 16. ♖xe7!.

  FSR: "In build and coat and brush he was a huge timber-wolf; but the lie was given to his wolfhood by his color and marking. There the dog unmistakably advertised itself. No wolf was ever colored like him. He was brown, deep brown, red-brown, an orgy of browns." Jack London, Brown Wolf http://www.classicreader.com/book/8...

  thegoodanarchist: As for the pun, it makes me wonder if this was a blitz game.

I see no indication that it was.

Jul-22-18  Granny O Doul: It's a short game, and a play on the typing exercise. A wolf is close enough to a fox.
Jul-22-18  ChessHigherCat: How about "Wolff down"?
Jul-22-18  RookFile: The quick brown wolf jumped over the lazy dog.
Jul-22-18  Howard: This was Wolff's first US championship. He was seeded into it because he'd won the US Junior back in '84.

A short game is typically considered to be 20 moves or fewer. This isn't that short.

On top of that, a game that is considered "short" by the number of moves is not necessarily quick, which refers to rapidity of play.

Did the <orgy of browns> produce brown anchor babies?

Jul-22-18  Granny O Doul: <thegoodanarchist> For a decisive game between GM's (or GMs-to-be-in-the-near-future), 25 moves is indeed short.

As for the game's title, it isn't mine, so I won't go to the mat for it. But I had no trouble understanding it.

Well, it isn't difficult to understand. It just isn't quite appropriate IMO...

And personally I wouldnt say that a wolf is close enough to a fox.

  fredthebear: Pun history, sort of...

"The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" is an English-language pangram—a sentence that contains all of the letters of the English alphabet. Owing to its brevity and coherence, it has become widely known. The phrase is commonly used for touch-typing practice, testing typewriters and computer keyboards, displaying examples of fonts, and other applications involving text where the use of all letters in the alphabet is desired. -- Wikipedia

Ol' FTB typed "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" many, many times back in the day, and it paid off to the tune of 70 word per minute on the typewriter. My momma had all her claws and she struck over 100 w.p.m., which helped get her a nice secretarial job w/a local attorney. It kept her out of the circus, at least until she came home from work.

* _ * _ * _ * _

Walter Shawn Browne was a great chess mind, as good as any I've ever witnessed. Potential chess maneuvers came to him like 100 w.p.m. Queenside, center, AND Kingside -- he could whip up a plethora of attacking concepts with ease, at a glance, then chose one. His chess mind was so fast, so versatile, that it was almost discouraging to listen to him explain. Now I wonder how many games he lost due to a lack of patience, by changing plans in mid-stream when he should have stayed the course and ground it out from a solid position?
