  andrewjsacks: Good pun for this game.

  al wazir: 18...Bd6 was a terrible move, but by that time the game was already lost.
Apr-09-13  kolty1: 11. ... Be7! coulb be better.
Apr-09-13  Abdel Irada: At first I was impressed by White's play, but then I realized his opponent was a large rock, and that took away some of the luster from his achievement.
Apr-09-13  Alphastar: The whole variation starting with 9. ...Nb6 is simply suspect and black should instead try the well-trodden variation starting with 9. ...e6 10. Qxb7 Nxd4 11. Bb5 Nxb5 12. Qc6 Ke7 13. Qxb5 etc.

  offramp: It's better to make a pun on Attila than on Groszpeter.

  morfishine: Gratifying that one or the other wasn't rated much lower than the other, which seems to happen fairly regularly with the GOTD. With that said, both are GM's here, yet it looks like Black is rated much lower!

A scientific dismantling

  mike1: what happens after 21... f6?
My first idea was 22. Rxe7+ Kxe7
23. Bxf6 but Black got Qc7 as reply.
Apr-09-13  newzild: <mike 1> Good question. However, the immediate capture on f6 looks nasty. The main line is:

21...f6
22. Bxf6! gxf6
23. Qxf6

Threatening mate in one while also hitting the Rh8.

Apr-09-13  Abdel Irada: <offramp: It's better to make a pun on Attila than on Groszpeter.>

*Now* you tell me — now that I've already called him "a large rock." ;-)

Apr-09-13  goodevans: After <22Rxd6> black will be the exchange up but he will lose his B next move. That in itself is probably not worth resigning over.

... but its about to get worse: After <23.Rxe7+ Kf8 24.Rxb7> it will cost him even more material top stop the threatened back row mate.

  kevin86: White will obtain two bishops and two passed pawns for the rook-a distinct advantage,evidentally enough for black to resign for.

  scutigera: <Abdel Irada>: "Large rock" for "Groszpeter" is the cleanest pun, but not the most obvious, depending on how much western American colloquialism you are prepared to put up with. "Attila the Hunted" is better here anyway; if instead, he had won this game, then some kind of admiring reference based on his surname might be appropriate. Or not.

  perfidious: <kolty1: 11. ... Be7! coulb be better.>

It is; 11....Rc8 has long been known as an error because of the punishment meted out by White in this game.

I played 11....Be7 in the 1985 New England blitz championship, castled and won fairly easily against Ronald L Henry when he was unable to come up with a good attacking idea to offset his poor structure.

If Black's ambitions extend beyond a draw, this also offers little, which is why I played 9....Nb6 long ago.

Let's just say that "large rock" was the pun/translation that seemed appropriate for a family-friendly site. ;-)

In any case, I wasn't nominating "large rock" for the game pun; it was merely something that came up in an aside a few posts ago.
