Dec-02-11  sevenseaman: Notice that 25. Bxc1+ will not succeed because of 25...Be5. A very good game rather inadequately visited.

  FSR: Tylor, who was legally blind, "sees" farther than Winter.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: One droll oddity--in the final position, every one of White's pieces is en prise, much like the finish of Reshevsky's masterpiece vs. Vasconcellos.
Apr-11-13  SuperPatzer77: What a nice game by legally blind Theodore Tylor!! He could've been the "Daredevil" in the marvel comic. LOL

Way to go, Tylor!!!

  morfishine: Great game by White! I guess the pun is in reference to some weird movie...Simpler would've been something like 'Winter snowed under'
Apr-11-13  The HeavenSmile: <morfishine> Oh come on, you've never heard of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure? or the sequel Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey? They're cult classics about Keanu Reeves and some guy nobody remembers travelling through time in order to write a history report, save the world and say 'excellent' a lot. Interestingly, the guy who played Bill S. Preston, Esquire, actually has the surname Winter

  morfishine: <The HeavenSmile> Much appreciate the update. Forgive me, I haven't been to a movie in years (and stopped watching TV about 3 years ago).

As far as media-entertainment goes, my interest lies solely in documentaries, biographies and history. Thus I'm inclined to favor non-fiction vs fiction.

With that said, I watched 'War of the Worlds' (re make with Tom Cruise) a couple of days ago and found it to be a good escape movie. The next time I watch a non-fiction movie, which would be around 2025, I'll send over my review. :)

Apr-11-13  gars: <morfishine>: By avoiding movies and television you have proved yourself a very wise man. Congratulations!

  HeMateMe: Wow! Blistering double check combo. Great pun, too.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Black pondering his 21st move: "Why did White put the Queen on d3, the same diagonal as the Bishop? Whatever. I need to trade some pieces. Rxc1."
Apr-11-13  Abdel Irada: Tippecanoe and Tylor, too?
Apr-11-13  Judah: <<An Englishman>: Good Evening: One droll oddity--in the final position, every one of White's pieces is en prise>

I wouldn't call the ♗ on b1 en prise, since it's protected by the ♖.

Apr-11-13  Snehalshekatkar: Good pun!
Apr-11-13  sleepyirv: A good candidate for POTD. Really well done.
Apr-11-13  fokers13: <Judah>:Yes but taking it allows mate:P
Apr-11-13  Howard: Just picked up an old copy of Nottingham 1936 last weekend at a used bookstore ! Winter and Tylor both played in it, but they finished near the bottom along with a couple other British players. Apparently, British chess wasn't too advanced back in those days. Yates, by the way, was already dead by then (died from a gas leak!).
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Howard> That pattern in British tournaments persisted into the 1970s: all one need do is peruse the typical Hastings congress crosstables.

Events such as first equal by Conel Hugh O'Donel Alexander in 1953-54 and Sir George Alan Thomas in the 1934-35 edition were very much the exception to the rule; the home contingent typically served as cannon fodder for the foreign masters.

  kevin86: Just when it looks like the king will escape...Here Comes The DOUBLE CHECK and MATE!!! Ouch!
Premium Chessgames Member
  ChemMac: 20...g6 looks OK for Black.

C.H.O'D Alexander surely could have been a top Grandmaster, except that his off-chess occupation with the British Secret Service meant that he could never play in tournaments outside the UK - certainly NOT in the Soviet Union!

Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <ChemMac> According to sources I have read, Alexander was enjoined only from playing in any Soviet bloc countries; moreover, there are games in this DB from Belgrade 1952 and a number of Dutch events while he worked as a cryptanalyst for GCHQ in the postwar period.
Apr-11-13  mmmjv: What happened to the board? You can't analyze anymore
Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <mmmiv> Click the box just above the kibitzing labelled "PGN Viewer". If you have been switched to "pgn4web" (the new default), you will not be able to analyze on the board.

This capability can be restored by switching to "Chess Viewer Deluxe", but you need to be aware that is a Java program and your system may have issues with it. There is more information at Viewer Help Page

If that is not the issue, leave a message at chessforum, giving full details about your operating system and the problem.

Apr-11-13  ZeejDonnelly: One of the funniest puns I've seen on this site in my three years of creeping. A real gem, like the movie it invokes.


Premium Chessgames Member
  Eggman: One of the best puns.
Premium Chessgames Member
  maxi: most excellent pun, dude
