in another duhmension...
Aug-08-09  markofthemushroom: This one kills me. Mate by pawn to h3.
Jun-05-12  Whitehat1963: Wow! What a game!

  FSR: Black's play was, um, not too intelligent.
Jul-28-15  jith1207: All the game, Black was in Duhlemma.
May-26-16  andrewjsacks: Pun well done.
May-26-16  jith1207: There are always games Duhm a Duhzen waiting to be christenduhmed for this pun.
May-26-16  morfishine: The German pronounciation of 'Duhm' is 'Doom'

But that works too!

  thegoodanarchist: Of course in Switzerland this game is known as <The Pearl of Basel>

  Honza Cervenka: 9...Ncxd4 was a mistake. Instead of that 9...Nxe5 looks viable.

  dorsnikov: Duhm da duhm dhum , Duhm da duhm duhm ... DHUM !!

Opening music from 1950's Dragnet show.

May-26-16  The Kings Domain: Nice game, and one of the best miniatures. Certainly the pun is an amusing tribute to the irony of the unfortunately-named combatants and their entertaining game. :-)

  OhioChessFan: Again, as enticing as it was, the pun was a mistake. CG.C, you've again crossed the line between having fun with a name and making fun of a name.
Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: 17.h3# is a dual-purpose move. In addition to delivering checkmate, it also provides luft for the White King.
May-26-16  yadasampati: Pawn mates are my favorite! David defeats Goliath :-)
May-26-16  catlover: I don't know what's more fun—the pun or the game.
May-26-16  ajile: <OhioChessFan: Again, as enticing as it was, the pun was a mistake. CG.C, you've again crossed the line between having fun with a name and making fun of a name.>

You are joking right?

May-26-16  jith1207: <thegoodanarchist>: What do we need a luft for, when you are checkmating that move!? May be, am I missing anything here?

<OhioChessFan>: Not long ago, you were debating with another kibitzer here for making persistent compliant about a pun against the CG.COM and that kibitzer here has become a cooler customer day by day but see where you are. I understand your sentiment, and sometimes feel that too, but why laboring so much pain over the pun?

  Telemus: I found another game Duhm vs Duhm played in 1921. What will happen to this search, if it is added? Well, we'll get four, I think.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Korora: When I saw the game in an Opening Disasters collection, somehow I just knew that if it had ever been GotD it would have that pun.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Then there is the possibility of Dumas vs Dumas.....
Premium Chessgames Member
  fredthebear: They's a bunch o' folk playin' down at Dumas Walkers' joint:

I wouldn't call it a coffeehouse, but think of it as you will.

Reminds me of a big chess tournament I once played in...Chicago, or was it Denver? Big, fancy hotel w/chalet service and a swanky piano bar. Next door to our playing hall, a live band kicks in. Yep, we're playing rated tournament chess for big cash prizes next door to a wedding reception. The band played on, and so did we. I heard the punch was pretty good.
