  al wazir: White is going to castle queenside or not at all. Then what was the point of 12. a4 ? It allowed black to attack along the long diagonal and loses either a ♙ or the exchange. 12. a3 or 12. Ng3 would have been more useful.

  Messiah: The pun instantly makes sense if you check the story of the a8 rook in this game.

  HeMateMe: think of a good pun as a clue in a crossword puzzle.
