  fredthebear: White cannot play 27.Rxe6 because of the reply fork 27...Nd4+. It seems White needed to play exf5 somewhere around move 30. Still, Black would have one remaining passer to deal with.
Jul-18-18  OrangeTulip: Would be great, great game of the day.
A pun could be something like “
The Russian, Portuguese, Dutch and Scandinavion Quartet”
