Apr-07-09  Trigonometrist: White to play and mate at 24.?...
Aug-14-14  Xeroxx: I don't know. What does the <fox> say?
Aug-14-14  JimNorCal: <Xeroxx>: According to lyrics.com, he says "Ringdingdingdingdingdedingdeding" and then he says "Wapapapapapow". Also, "hah-tee,hah-tee,hah-tee,ho" and some more stuff like that...
Aug-15-14  Xeroxx: Absolutely.

  mjmorri: Black's 11th move appears to be the source of his problems. The dark squared Bishop has no retreat square, and after it is exchanged, Black is very weak on the dark squares making White's h file attack more effective.

  al wazir: 16...e5 would have been a better defense.
May-26-17  ossipossi: Dragon may happen to be a weak choice if you can't play h5 as black, which means you have a dragon without tail.

  Gilmoy: After <17..Rf7>, he plays <22..Rg7> for a flight square ... but it fails because the Rg7 takes away a flight square.

Lesson: Don't fianchetto the rook. Maybe outrace White on the Q-side ...

The silicon disagrees. According to Stockfish,

16...Kg8 [ +1.68 P for W at 26 plies ]

16...e5 17.f5 Rg8 18.f6 [ +2.05 P for W at 22 plies ]

May-26-17  morfishine: What does "20th century fox" have to do with chess, this chess game, these chess players, this chess opening, this chess tournament or this chess venue or anything at all (besides the infantile connection between the player's last name and a movie studio)?

ans: nothing

and so another meaningless game title spins slowly around as the toilet flush gurgles and consumes another nauseating mess

Nothing except it was played in the 20th century, the winner's name is Fox, black's king gets foxed by a nice combo that is worth knowing, and as far as the title I thought of the great Door's song, not the studio, and that is a really good thing.
