I guess the main question is, What is the fastest win after 23...Kc8? (23...Ke8 24.Bxd7#). On first glance, it looks like 24.Ba6+ Kb8 25.Rxd7, threatening some serious windmill action ending in mate.

Not a bad game for a selection based on a pun.

OK, now that we've had one serious comment, start with the bad jokes.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: If the game had been played in May, CG could have said that "I Love Paris in the spring."

I wasn't going to offer any bad jokes, but since <Phony Benoni> asked, and since I do respect our colleague, how could I refuse?

Feb-14-11  Whitehat1963: Not nearly as interesting as the match between Paris Hilton and Jennifer Love Hewitt.
Feb-14-11  Shams: <Whitehat1963> Hilton would win. All that practice with nasal insufflation means she could set up a deadly whirlwind and then beat the discombobulated Hewitt unconscious with her Dolce clutch.
Feb-14-11  Whitehat1963: LOL!!

Feb-14-11  BishopsPawn: Pretty foolish of Black not to have castled as soon as the d and e pawns were off the board. When should he have done this? Move 10. or 11., perhaps?
Feb-14-11  JuliusDS: How about 16...0-0? 17 Nxc6 bxc6 18 Qxc6 only serves to open lines against white's king eg. Rb8 c3 Rb6 followed by Rfb8 looks reasonable for black.
Feb-14-11  newzild: My compatriot blundered on moves three and four.

He should have played:

3. Nxe5 d6
4. Nxf7!

Feb-14-11  Jim Bartle: As I remember, Paris' Love had pretty dire consequences: the Trojan War.
Feb-14-11  NARC: I think I saw 8. ... g5 in a theory book last time I tried to learn the Petroff, but that was a long time ago. Is that considered playable still?

  kevin86: White wins quickly and brutally:no love lost here-although Love lost here.
Feb-14-11  fisayo123: <kevin86> nice.
Feb-14-11  D4n: This really has nothing to do with this game, but the movie that shares the title is really great.

  Phony Benoni: <NARC> I suppose the idea of 8...g6 is to develop the dark-square bishop more actively than on e7. Unfortunately, its record in the database is 11 wins for White, 12 draws and one win for Black. Of course, the entire 3...exd4 lines apparently yields poor results for Black.

However, that one win makes up for a lot. Take a look; it's a treat:
