  Phony Benoni: Maybe not a great game, but good for a smile. You gotta love that h-file:

  Penguincw: Hmm, according to Google, "Papa Rellena" is a popular food in Latin America. It is Spanish for "stuffed potatoes".

(I know, crappy explanation)

Jan-06-16  technique: "10th open"? is this the full name of the tournament?
Jan-06-16  thathwamasi: Why is the final move in the score not indicating the mate with 34. Qd8#? Is it not a mate? Am I missing something?
Jan-06-16  thathwamasi: One for the picturesque positions collection...

  Once: <thathwamasi> It's a techie thing. The CG annotations don't show any symbols - + for check, # for mate or x for capture.
Jan-06-16  waustad: <thathwamasi> Chessviewer Deluxe II does show check and mate symbols. It may depend on your chosen PGN viewer.

  kevin86: The array of white pieces on the h-file and g8 is quite's one move suicide is less so.

  kevin86: actually, black has no way out of the mating just looks like suicide, really it IS murder.

  thegoodanarchist: <kevin86: actually, black has no way out of the mating just looks like suicide, really it IS murder.>

Right. If Black prevents 34.Qe7 or Qd8 with 33...Re8, then 34.Qf6 decides the issue.

Jan-06-16  Shams: I like the pun quite a bit. One of the usual culprits no doubt.
Jan-06-16  mruknowwho: I think I actually like 25...Nd3 over 25...Na6, even though it drops a pawn. It interferes with the things that White would like to do.
Jan-06-16  morfishine: Sorry <Shams> There is no pun to "like" because there is no pun in the first place, and in also this case, we are not even treated to our usual lame play-on-word as expected from this illustrious peanut gallery; All we have is a vague reference to a popular latino dish featuring stuffed potatoes

Stuffed Potatoes! What a joke as there, usual, NO connecting reference necessary to generate an ACTUAL PUN

Neither player is from Latino origin nor is either one a potato, so all we are left with is NOTHING except a stuffed potato

Which is about par for the course around here



Jan-06-16  Shams: <morfishine> You have to know that at this point people are actively rooting for bad puns just to see you go off like Vesuvius.
Jan-07-16  Abdel Irada: Sometimes the defender ends up like fried liver. Sometimes, as in this game, he is converted to stuffed potatoes.

Oct-12-16  kilurah: New idea: 26. Ng8 ... not bad
