|Mar-01-06|| ||Granite: Easily the best pun to date.|
|Mar-01-06|| ||THE pawn: Hahaha!
A great pun involving a mediocre video game.
|Mar-01-06|| ||DanielBryant: 16.Bh6 forces Black to sac the exchange, but he seems to have quite a bit of compensation involving the e-pawn and the queen penetrating.|
|Mar-01-06|| ||Confuse: impressive play by nuke 'em: )|
|Mar-01-06|| ||soberknight: Great pun. Funny how White's attack fizzles out in the end. I'm so used to seeing crazy attacks actually win. Or, to put it differently, this might be a fun game to play with the result turned off. ("Darn! Too late now...")|
|Mar-01-06|| ||kackhander: Qd3 looks a bit odd to me. Is this a common move within this variation?|
|Mar-01-06|| ||backyard pawn: 32..., Re2+ is a nice in-between move. I didn't see the point of 31. Rxf5, grabbing the pawn in the face of Black's threats.|
|Mar-01-06|| ||kellmano: A cracking game. Just whizzed through it, but it seemed to me like a lesson in how not to make the obvious capture|
|Mar-01-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: <Easily the best pun to date.>|
<Granite> Although this GOTD's pun is great, I still think the best pun to date is this one:
"Women's Prison": Nimzowitsch vs Hakansson, 1922
|Mar-01-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: A very interesting switch in initative in this game!|
Did White have any serious chances to win ?
|Mar-01-06|| ||Gregor Samsa Mendel: My personal favorite pun is Keres vs Petrosian, 1959.|
"Crouching Tigran, Hidden Dragon"
|Mar-01-06|| ||TheAlchemist: Whether it's only coincidental or not, credit must also go to <WannaBe> for the pun, he thought of it here: Nukhim Rashkovsky.|
|Mar-01-06|| ||itz2000: Beautiful play by black!|
|Mar-01-06|| ||CapablancaFan: Pun from a popular video game many years ago.|
|Mar-01-06|| ||kevin86: Black managed to force white to pin his own queen- then added insult to injury by driving the defending king away to take said queen,at the profit of a piece. The win was elementary.|
|Mar-01-06|| ||chessic eric: <backyard pawn> there is no defense to the capture on g3 other than exchanging the queen for bishop and rook, except, as you mention, the intermezzo Re2+ foils that exchange. The white knight cannot move due to the threat of ...Rh1#. The only decent try other than the game continuation would be 31.Rxh7+,Kxh7 32.Qxf5+,Kg7 and trying for a repetition of the position or a perpetual, but I don't see one.|
It seems to me white is at least equal after move 26, but underestimated the resources of the black position. Defending the back rank should have been the priority over centralizing the knight on move 27, for example 27.Rh3. After ...Re1+ things were over.
|Mar-01-06|| ||skushnir: <DanielBryant: 16.Bh6 forces Black to sac the exchange> Surely 16. ..Ne8 saves the rook?|
|Mar-01-06|| ||chessic eric: In case anyone is interested, white's f5 rook is immune from capture, due to the simple 20...gxf5?? 21.Bxf5! and h7 cannot be adequately defended. Even the desperation try 21...Ne4?! doesn't work if white plays correctly, 22.Rxh7+!,Kg8 23.Bf6+!,Nxg3 24.Rh8#|
Note that the convoluted line 20...gxf5?? 21.Bxf6+,Bxf6 22.Rxf7+,Kxh7 23.Bxf5+,Kh8 24.Qh3+,Kg8 25.Qh7# achieves only a draw if black plays 23...Kh6 instead, 24.Qh3+,Kg5 25.Qg4+,Kh6 etc.
|Mar-01-06|| ||al wazir: <chessic eric: Even the desperation try 21...Ne4?! doesn't work if white plays correctly, 22.Rxh7+!,Kg8 23.Bf6+!,Nxg3 24.Rh8#> 23...Nxg3+ is a check: 24. hxg3 Bxf6, and white is almost out of wood. |
The simpler 23. Nxe4 does the job.
|Mar-01-06|| ||schnarre: With a pun like that, it had to be a game with all guns blazing!|
|Mar-01-06|| ||dakgootje: Really expected that white would win with its attack, but it strangely didnt|
|Mar-01-06|| ||Marvol: Hahaha excellent pun.
Come on, raise your hands you nerds how many of you have played the game... yep, just about every one of you :-P
<THE pawn: A great pun involving a mediocre video game.>
Whaddamean MEDIOCRE?!? }-)
"Damn... I'm lookin' GOOD..!" That game rocked :-P!
|May-08-09|| ||sleepyirv: Oddly, "Nuke Dukem Forever" was recently cancelled after a decade in development. Great pun!|
|May-08-09|| ||arctic tern: <sleepyirv: Oddly, "Nuke Dukem Forever" was recently cancelled after a decade in development. Great pun!>|
That should of course be "Duke Nukem". My first thought when I saw the pun: Hey, the CG staff are video game nerds!
|May-08-09|| ||patzer2: For the uninitiated in popular culture, who rely on google to catch up, here at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duke_N... is a discussion of "Duke Nukem."|
