Jan-20-06  Gowe: Beatiful match. Love when so much sacrifices gives by result a victory.. and so fast too.

  cu8sfan: <Reminds me of an Oll game, I am unable to find the link. Oll vs Ulibin, 1989>

How did you find that? It doesn't show in the "Find similar games" link.

Premium Chessgames Member I just happened to know the game he was speaking of.
Jan-20-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Yes this game does look somewhat like the Oll - Ulibin 1989 game! A very beautiful game that is, which I added to my favorite games collection and looked at many times, so I know what <johnthebon> and <> mean.

  FSR: <KKDEREK> 867-5309/Jenny is a song. Its title refers to the phone number of a girl named Jenny whose name and phone number the singer saw on the (bathroom?) wall.

  FSR: Why oh why has this not been GOTD?

  Infohunter: I remember the uproar that song caused. For my part, when I associate the name "Jenny" with music, this is the song I prefer to think of:

Those two could make some real music in their day.

Incidentally, this was a good choice for GOTD.

  piltdown man: Bravo! What a beautiful final combo!
Jun-29-15  lakshashishu: Awesome pun.
Jun-29-15  morfishine: This isn't a pun, as usual. If someone "has your number", you are the victim or will be soon. Jenni won the game, a scintillating one at that, well worthy of being GOTD

And what about poor Nabavi? 5 games in the database with 4 losses & 1 draw. Here's another where his position gets torn to pieces: H Tirard vs P Nabavi, 2012


Jun-29-15  Honey Blend: After 23. ... ♕xg5+ 24. ♕xg5 ♖a7 the winning line did not look very clear to me at first glance:

Now 25. ♖g4! is the key move, threatening ♕h6+ and after 25. ... ♖h7 26. ♕e5+ forces mate. 21. ♘g5!! was the beginning of this brilliant combination.

  Penguincw: Damn. <FSR> is better at submitting puns than I thought. Yesterday, he offered <cg> a GOTD via. the forum ( chessforum (kibitz #22902)), and one day later, it's GOTD.

I believe that breaks the "site record" set by <morf> of 2 days: P Kiss vs Tibor, 1973

Jun-29-15  Shoukhath007: He dont want to sacrifice the bishop so black resigned the game in a totally winning position,ha ha.why? Because..... that is the reason.
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: The rook sac leads to mate- the same theme as today's puzzle.

  FSR: <Penguincw> It might be a record, but I'm not sure in which direction. As you can see from the comments, I offered <867-5309> as a pun for this game over 4 years ago.
