  Mateo: After 32.Ra3, Black loses because White gets a powerful Rook on the open file, either on the 7th rank, either putting a letal pressure on the 'b' pawn. This suggests that Black should impede the Rook to reach the 'a' file. 31...b4 or 31...Ra8 were better than 31...Nf6?.
Jun-18-15  Robespierre: Although more than a few chess players are mathematically knowledgable, I still believe this pun is quite obscure and will be appreciated by only a handful of chess players.
Jun-18-15  Cheapo by the Dozen: <Robespierre>,

Linear algebra is part of the standard curriculum in computer science. That's probably where most of the recognition will come from.

Jun-18-15  morfishine: <Robespierre> Another reason this "pun" is obscure is because its not a pun in the first place; This is just further evidence that the GOTD remains mired in the La Brea Tar pits of shallow, ineffective word-play. I can't even remember the last time an actual pun got voted in

<Cheapo by the Dozen> Good point about a practical application


Jun-18-15  newzild: <morfishine> True that the game titles are rarely brilliant. Frankly, I don't care as long as the GOTD does have merit. Today's game didn't particularly "wow" me, but I did find the ending to hold some interest.
Jun-18-15  JohnBoy: <Robespierre, Cheapo, morph>: linear algebra is standard mathematical fare for anyone w a quant education. The suggestion that it is obscure is about as silly as the suggestion that Robespierre name-recognition is unlikely. Chess games need not apologize to the illiterate.

  kevin86: A good game, although the pun is too deep for most people. The rooks must be exchanged and the ending is easy.
Jun-18-15  rozzatu: I am from Italy, and obviously do not understand most of CG puns (language difficulties). However, I quickly realized this one.
Jun-19-15  newzild: <JohnBoy> Can you explain what relevance linear algebra has to this game, and why it therefore qualifies to be a decent pun?
Jun-19-15  JohnBoy: <newzild>: I do not claim that this is a great pun. Clearly LDP out-calculated his opponent, so perhaps the mathematical reference is tolerable. I only claim that it is neither obscure nor deep nor mainly accessible to those w a background in computer science. So... no, I cannot justify the pun here.
