  MarkThornton: This is a convincing win by Karpov, but note that it is <from a simultaneous display>.
Apr-14-12  jhelix70: maybe not game of the day material, but there are certainly pun possibilities here...

Be Kind...

Kind of a drag...

Killing with Kind-ness...

Kind to be cruel...

Not my Kind...

  Eggman: To me the surname Kind, being an actual word, makes the pun rather obvious, and I think it's too unsubtle to actually use the word 'kind' in the pun. I'd prefer a title as simple as "Cruel" or even "Not Very Nice", though perhaps something more clever could be thought up - that is, if this game were worthy of being a game of the day in the first place.

Having said all that, if you were to use the word 'kind' in the title, 'Be Animal To Kind' is really pretty good.

Jun-21-12  Naniwazu: If Karpov's opponent in this game is German then his surname has a very different pronunciation/meaning to the English word 'kind'. In German the word 'Kind' means 'child' and rhymes with the English word 'hint'.
Jun-21-12  solskytz: I think that "Blunder kind" was intended with the German pronunciation in mind

(which would make "Blunder" also sound funny - in imitation of "Wunder")

I guess this is the winning pun then
