  Phony Benoni: No Mas?
Nov-24-10  ProLogik: It looks like an interesting game. I want more!
Nov-24-10  rilkefan: I take it black is still hosed after 21...Nc5 22.Nc4? Is 12...h5/14...Rh6 book?
Nov-24-10  Abdooss: <Phony Benoni> Mas had had the scalps of Viktor Korchnoi & Ian Rogers. Something that most of us can't do.
Nov-24-10  JG27Pyth: What makes this game of the day? Am I missing something. The resignation looks at first glance a bit early but it does look like White has Nxc5 in the near future with Black losing material without any compensation. Is there some spectacular forced mate lurking here that I'm supposed to see?
Nov-24-10  toso51: I don't understand

  mjmorri: The threat is 23.Nxe5 attacking the Rook, and Black is in big trouble.
Nov-24-10  JG27Pyth: I meant Nxe5, not Nxc5 in my earlier post

  kevin86: After chasing the queen,white goes after the rook in a neat Cavalier trap of the castle.
Nov-24-10  Cuew: White can win the exchange immediately with Nd6+ but I'm sure there's much better.
Nov-24-10  rapidcitychess: 21...Rxc5 and then what? It's probably something ridiculous, but nobody's mentioned it.

Not the best GOTD ever.

Nov-24-10  swr: Why is this GoTD?

  HeMateMe: I'll have a vanilla latte with some Hafuzilnutt.
Nov-24-10  rapidcitychess: <HeMateMe> Imagine this:

Scene:Coffee Shop

"What's your name?"


What would you like in your latte?"


"No, that's you."

"No, I'm Hafizulhelmi!"

"So you're Hazelnut, and you would like a Hafizulhelmi latte?"

*Hafizulhelmi turns around and leaves*

Nov-24-10  TheRavenPK: <rapidcitychess> I would expect this type of commentary from <Once> :)
Nov-24-10  JohnBoy: Why does CG use the names Myanmar and Yangon? These are names which have been imposed on a subjugated people by a military dictatorship in order to establish their legitimacy.
Nov-24-10  WhiteRook48: actually after 22...Qc7, 23 Bxe5 still screws black up
Nov-24-10  rapidcitychess: <TheRavenPK> Not to toot my own horn or anything, (Well, maybe a little.) but I used to do that same hijinks.

Oh, those were the good old days. Puzzles that I didn't get, nonsensical posts, and utter failures... I posted so late though.

I do that kind of thing every <Once> in a while.

Nov-24-10  ICCM Bart Gibbons: 10... Nc5 seems to be the beginning of Black's mistakes. !0.. 0-0 looks more natural.
