Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-11-05  CeeFoR: Well for a beginner like myself this one is obvious, if 23.. takes the rook, he loses his queen. If he removes his queen from the rook threat, he gets mated~
Jan-11-19  lunchwithgina: The pun would be better if it were simply "Who'll stop Therien?". Still I wonder, still I blunder...are there are any other Credence Clearwater puns floating about?
Jan-11-19  SamAtoms1980: Dunno about CCR, but how about Kansas? I feel slightly less embarrassed about submitting <Garry On My Wayward Run> for this refutation of the Wayward Queen Attack by Kasparov:

  AylerKupp: <lunchwithgina> My favorite GOTD pun for a game with the same player (I think), indeed my all-time favorite pun, was "I concede clearly now, Therain is gone."

  An Englishman: Good Morning: Possible CCR puns for future Games of the Day.

If a male offspring of a GM wins a game he should have lost: "Fortunate Son."

If a woman named after the mother of Jesus Christ defeats a Super-GM: "Proud Mary."

If a ruling monarch wins a game: "Who'll Stop the Reign."

If Kurt Russell, who starred in a Western, wins a game: "Tombstone Shadow."

I can keep going, if you wish.

Jan-11-19  lunchwithgina: <SamAtoms1980> I like <Garry On My Wayward Run>, maybe a little obscure, but why not submit it?

<An Englishman> Good suggestions--regarding your "Fortunate Son" proposal, I will look for a father-son game where the son wins....

Jan-11-19  sfm: 12.-,Lg5?? really turned out to be a surprisingly terrible move, totally losing the game. Neat is 16.Rf4!, the precise attacking move. Black seems without any defense and after 22.Re4 the game is seriously over.

Morphy vs Morphy would be a good place to start.

Of course. That's why the longer version was used. Believe me, there was a series debate...

Jan-12-19  ACMEKINGKRUSHER: Howdy!!!
Did anyone out there Know that this is The ONLY WIN for THERIEN in the "13" Existing games from THERIEN's BRILLIANT CHESS CAREER! AKK!
Jan-12-19  SamAtoms1980: <lunchwithgina: <SamAtoms1980> I like <Garry On My Wayward Run>, maybe a little obscure, but why not submit it?>

I did -- how many years ago I no longer remember.
