Nov-19-19  Cheapo by the Dozen: Fun game. But other than the name "Wayne" matching that of the film character, what's the point of this pun?
Nov-19-19  Cheapo by the Dozen: Fun game. But other than the name "Wayne" matching that of the film's title character -- and that of it's show-within-the-show -- what's the point of this pun?
Nov-19-19  spingo: Correspondence games are often low quality and this is no exception.

It is a good pun though. In those days Corres chess was often played between players widely spaced across the world.

Nowadays I believe the discipline is finished owing to 'puters.

Nov-19-19  Ilkka Salonen: Oh. Maybe the pun is support to american movie industry, whose ethics can be questioned. Do you think CIA are into porn?
Nov-19-19  siggemannen: What about "Wayne's Knight" as a pun?
The actor in Jurassic Park/Seinfeld, plus name of the white player plus the knight played an important role here
Nov-19-19  Brent Baccala: Somewhat amazing sequence on Black's 9th, 10th, and 11th moves.

Stockfish wants to play 9...h6 to stop 10. Nxg5, Black played 9... e4 instead.

Then the computer wants 10...Be6, preparing to interpose against 11. Bh5; Black played 10...Nf6 instead.

Finally, 11... Kd8 would have prevented the White queen's entry on h5; Black played 11... Nxh5.

The computer evals went from +0.40, to +3.48, to +4.93, to +8.75.
