Apr-03-13  Expendable Asset: I like Jasper Cullens and Alice Cullens the most.
Apr-03-13  PaulLovric: 2nd dammit, getting closer
Apr-03-13  waustad: OK, I haven't a clue what the pun is about. With the "Bela" I'd have guessed that it had something to do with Hungary. James Tarjan has a name that gets close to the name of the town. I did a crossword today where the clues I couldn't get involved South Park and some band I didn't know. New Trivial Pursuits all seem to be about celebs I've never heard of. I must be going geezer having just turned 63 a few minutes ago.
Apr-03-13  Naniwazu: <waustad> It seems it has something to do with the Twilight Saga. Bella Swan and Edward Cullen are the main couple in that story.

here black wimped out with 31...Qd8, but it was better to ignore white's 'threats' and play 31...Qxa6! 32.Qe8+ Kh7 33.Rc8 h5! (black's Bd4 is a strong defensive piece) 34.Ng5+ Kh6 35.Nxf7+ Rxf7 36.Qxf7 Bxf2+ 37.Kxf2 Qxc8

and white takes the perp

  sandtime: Happy Birthday <waustad> It's OK, just keep your clock ticking.
Apr-03-13  morfishine: The Modern Defense has since been modernized
Apr-03-13  Abdel Irada: One seldom sees so imposing a clot of pieces as what appeared on the queenside in this game after 25. ...e6. I was rooting for White to plant his other rook on a4 to finish clogging the artery altogether, but apparently he chose to use a thrombolytic agent and dissolve it.
Apr-03-13  paavoh: The White player (killed in a car crash in 1988) has been immortalized by the so-called "Perenyi Attack".

<"After 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cd 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 a6 6.Be3 e6 7.g4!?- a relatively uncommon but highly dangerous move, more ambitious even than the English attack. White plays a kind of delayed Keres Attack. Much of the credit for the development of this line goes to the late Hungarian player Bela Perenyi(it is often labelled the Perenyi Attack.) It was mainly due to his efforts in the late 1970s that the variation was catapulted into the limelight at the highest level. These days it is a particular favorite of <Alexei Shirov> and <Garry Kasparov>, who is not renowned for playing timid openings!." -John Emms >

Apr-03-13  Abdel Irada: Catapulting things into limelights is indeed a <perenyially> dangerous idea.

  TheTamale: <waustad>: 63, eh? Then you might enjoy the South Park episode "You're Getting Old." You'd boost your crossword prowess to boot!

  kevin86: White picks off a piece.
Apr-03-13  Expendable Asset: The pun does refer to Bella Swan and Edward Cullen (and not to my misspellings of Cullen--Jasper and Alice are Edward's "siblings"). It's an irony--Bella is a human who is vulnerable, fragile, and prone to accidents while Edward is an extremely strong and fast vampire. Yet here we see Bella beating Edward. I-I mean Bela beating Eduard.
Apr-03-13  akatombo: Then there is Bela Lugosi and Ed Wood.
Apr-03-13  Castleinthesky: Ok pun and good game until it was won by an avoidable blunder (why GOTD then?)
