  Phony Benoni: I'll let our prime math guys handle the pun. As for the game, it's the usual result when the king protects the center rather than vice versa.

  naresb: After 15... 0-0, with the open centre, Black's Bishop posted along g2-b2 diagonal, I didn't understand the logic of playing Kingside White LSB at b3 (with the primary purpose of Kingside defence) to be posted with 16. Bd5.

Black immediately resumed Queenside attack with b5-a5 Pawns, Ra2, Ba4. With the fractured castle left, White King heroically joined controlling the Centre and advancing the Pawns to finish line.

Black seem to got shocked and perhaps the reason for delayed end.

Yes, but don't say it to Steinitz....:-)))

  kevin86: Actually, it looked like white's game was on the fritz.
Jul-11-14  Seaholme: <morfishine: A prime example of word play that only fills 1/2 of the ref requirements thus falling short of being an actual pun> Maybe Fritz Riemanns conjecture was that black win in all lines after 3... Nf6 ?

  Gilmoy: White coyly keeps both castling options open. <9..Ng8 10..Nge7> is a better retort: a reverse-Breyer tour to(ward) d5, defers Black's own castling, and unmasks his long B.

White castles into it. <9.a3> becomes a target, inviting the Q-side pawn storm. Harmonious a/b + Bg7 pressure is probably always worth a pawn somewhere. <18.Nexd4> pretty much loses initiative for the rest of the game: a very expensive pawn.

Dear morfishine:

<<<Seaholme> Trying to discern what Reimann was thinking remains unsolvable to this day, though many have tried >>>

It is considered the most famous unsolved math problem. What Riemann was thinking is well known.

  morfishine: <Bobby Spassky> I am aware of that. Sorry, this was a poor attempt at dry humor by myself: I was referring to the chess player Fritz Riemann, not the mathmetician Bernhard Riemann

Nice user name!

  alexmagnus: <the most famous unsolved math problem> I'd go for the Goldbach conjecture or the 3n+1 problem, as both are, unlike the Riemann hypothesis, easy to explain to a complete layman.
