  luzhin: I hereby nominate this as "The immortal tripled-pawn game". The final move of the trio makes the point, avoiding 108.c8=Q stalemate!

  Gilmoy: But it lacks the elegance of being an only-move, as any of three underpromotions also mates easily, with no stalemate.

White had only a draw until <73..g5?!> fixed his h4-weakness, and turned the endgame into a track meet. The other guy's blunder doesn't warrant a fancy nickname. As this game showed a pulse for only the first 20 moves and the last 35, maybe it could be a <Cryogenic Game>, or the <Rice-Vampiric Tripled-Pawn Game>. Earthbound, surely.

  luzhin: I wasn't being entirely serious, Gilmoy! After all, 108.c8=Q is the only move on the board which doesn't win; if White didn't want to celebrate his weird pawn structure I imagine he would have played 108.Kc6
