  MissScarlett: Olland and Wolf? Didn't they build the <Titanic>?

  fredthebear: According to Wikipedia:
The Titanic was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. Thomas Andrews, her architect, died in the disaster.

FTB thinks <MissScarlett> is entitled to Pun of the Day honors for bringing up the subject.

The obituaries of the two chess players Olland and Wolf are interesting. They suffered opposite fates.

Matthew 24:36 King James Version (KJV)
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

  fredthebear: The tempting 30.Rh3+ allows the Black queen to sacrifice herself and open the g-file, threatening to pin the White queen with Rg8. After 30.Rh3+ QxRh3 31.gxQh3 RxNe5 (necessary prior to Rg8) the intermezzo 32.Qh6+ escapes the open g-file. White still wins but it takes more work.

Thus 30.Rg3 as actually played is the best move available for White.
