Nov-27-11  goodevans: Nothing to do with Elton John, unfortunately. Nor anything to do with the Ragnarok of Norse mythology (which could have been the basis of a much better pun). Ragnar Rock is, rather disappointingly, just the name of a computer game.

  GerMalaz: <FSR> A word pun on Ragnarök

  Gilmoy: <9.Nd5+> Is this combo even Legal?!

"Rag No Rook" -- not use either one

Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Looks like Legal's Mate as seen in De Legal vs Saint Brie, 1750.

  FSR: These puns are getting more obscure and weirder by the day.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: At least they're not using some of my really obscure ones. I proposed <Double Attack> for Lasker vs W Napier, 1904.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <Phony Benoni> Why "Double Attack"?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <FSR> You see what I mean about obscure? My thought was that both players were attacking, so the game was a Double Attack.

Yes, I know. I'm weird.

Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <PB> True. Of course, you could apply that description to a lot of games.
Nov-28-11  rilkefan: <<FSR>: These puns are getting more obscure and weirder by the day.>

Thought this was a brilliant if obvious one, perhaps because I read a book on Norse mythology (maybe around third grade, when you were reading a book that will instantly allow you to decipher tomorrow's pun, which will stump me.

Nov-28-11  Shams: The D'Aulaires books are gold.

  kevin86: A later version of the Fried Liver Attack...loser looked fraggled.
Jul-29-12  jeupham: Game #11655 in the January 1955 issue of British Chess Magazine confirms the game score as given.

  Phony Benoni: Considering how Black has played so far, I would be tempted to play 7.0-0 and hope for 7...bg4 -- which, after a, a Legall Move.

but we are not allowed to indulge our whimsy in apuzzle, so it's probably 7.bxf7+ Kxf7 8.Nxe5+ and wing it rom there.

Feb-21-17  Cheapo by the Dozen: I picked the right moves and would have over the board as well, but through Spielmannesque faith rather than precise calculation.

Not your typical Tuesday.

Feb-21-17  ChessHigherCat: <Phony Benoni: Considering how Black has played so far, I would be tempted to play 7.0-0 and hope for 7...bg4 -- which, after a, a Legall Move.>

You found de Legal move.
Has anybody else that <CG> has suddenly added 5 moves to the usual degrees of difficulty this week? Here we have an "easy" Tuesday mate in 8.

Feb-21-17  leRevenant: I would have played 9.Ng6 for an "easy" mate in 18.
Feb-21-17  saturn2: Bxf7 followed by Nxe5 is a typical motiv.I was a bit hesitating because of Kf6. But after 9 Nd5 KxNe5 10 f4+ there should be mate in the middle of the board soon.
Feb-21-17  Walter Glattke: Black can Play 6.-Bg4 7.Qd5 Qd7 8.Ng5!?
Be6 and White get his pawn back, supposed draw, 6.-h6 loses, yes FSR.
Feb-21-17  Autoreparaturwerkbau: I must be blind but what happens in game line after <11...Kxe4> (king taking pawn)?
Feb-21-17  cocker: Seems to have been a sudden increase in difficulty this week. Means the rest of the week will be beyond me.

  thegoodanarchist: <FSR: What the heck is Ragnar Rock?>

Ragnarök is a battle at the end of the world, in Norse mythology, IIRC.

  moronovich: <Autoreparaturwerkbau: I must be blind but what happens in game line after <11...Kxe4> (king taking pawn)?>

0-0-0,followed by RHe1+ mating.The BKing is "in a box".A mating net.

Feb-21-17  morfishine: By move <6> White has 3 minors developed while Black has zero

Of course we can sacrifice on <f7>
