  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.

  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 :-)

  catlover: I don't know what's more fun—the pun or the game.

You are joking right?

  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?

  kevin86: Both sides "win the queen"; but white wins the king as well.
Feb-04-19  Telemus: I found another game Duhm vs Duhm played in 1921. What will happen to this search http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches..., if it is added? Well, we'll get four, I think.
