Jul-14-11  BiteByBits: i think black played a help mate by Kxc4 but thats what happens when you want to risk your king like that...

  AylerKupp: I admire White's self control. He could have taken Black's queen for straight 7 moves and refrained from doing so.
Jul-14-11  Sem: Spoil-the-pun: wasn't his name written Böök and pronounced like 'Euwe'?
Jul-14-11  consul: The pun made me laugh! But i wouldn't laugh thinking about the game. Very interesting also the lines proposed after 10.Kc6.
Jul-14-11  midknightblue: typical book moves. No surprises here.

  HeMateMe: My hero Eero was "booked up", as they say at the Chess Life sales window.
Jul-14-11  APatzer: Black queen not worth taking !
Jul-14-11  hedgeh0g: Not sure if any of this was "book" in 1925, but White simply played the most obvious moves after Black blundered in the opening and quickly achieved a won game.

  kevin86: "I am Book-do you read me?" I remember this game from the 1000 Best Short Games of Chess.-by Chernov;I even remember his cute remark on black's last move:look who is checking.

Not exactly a Monday puzzle...

Jul-14-11  castledweller: exciting game . . .

Black's queen is left hanging while White chases the king all around the board, attempting to mate without the need to take the queen - a unique and fun game. And it all happens so early on - thx CG.

Jul-14-11  castledweller: one for the books
Jul-14-11  Yerbamate: insane combinations deep
Jul-14-11  Blunderdome: Hmm, I didn't suggest this game for game of the day, but I did make the same pun on Feb 9th, 2010 at Keres vs Book, 1952.
Jul-14-11  SuperPatzer77: <Kevin86> Let's say "Book him for checkmate" when mirandizing him. LOL LOL LOL.

Jul-14-11  Lorenzon: wow what a coincidence, I looked at this game yesterday!!
Jul-14-11  WhiteRook48: awesome mating attack, but horrendous pun
Oct-31-12  pablo333: Brilliant play from Book: white appears to have a forced win after the seemingly logical 7... g6 from Hiidenheimo.
May-01-14  Mats G: The first name of black is Antti. The game is certainly authentic: It was played in the school championship of Suomalainen yhteiskoulu in the fall 1925 (Eero Böök: Odödliga partier och andra schackkåserier, Holger Schildts förlag, Helsingfors, 1966)
May-01-14  sakredkow: Throw the Book at him!
May-01-14  TheFocus: Yeah! Hit him in the Heimo!
Oct-31-14  Rookiepawn: Bishop opening - Blanel gambit... But it counts as a notable game for the Frankenstein-Dracula variation.

Are the two the same?

Apr-21-15  TheaN: With the Vienna game being the opening of the day, I have to correct my own analysis from 2010: <TheaN: 10.Bb5†?!> in reaction to 10.O-O-O+ Kc6 11.Bxd8 being the best move. I wrote down 10.Bb5+, but meant 11.Bb5+, as possibly being better than 11.Bxd8.

It's not true. After 11.Bxd8 Bh6+ 12.Kb1 Rxd8 13.Nf3 Bg7 14.Rhe1 black is indeed busted, as he can't defend e5. Unable to develop, the game is hopeless.

After 11.Bb5+?! Kb6 12.Bxd8 Bh6+ 13.Kb1 Rxd8 , if 14.Nd5+ Kxb5 15.Nxc7+ Kc6 16.Nxa8 white is better, but black will regain Pf7 at some point and can probably untangle himself.

Mar-06-21  Mats G: The name Böök has nothing to do with book. It means beech.
Mar-06-21  Granny O Doul: Beech's brew.
Apr-09-22  Whitehat1963: Book him, Eero!
