  Phony Benoni: After 23...Qxh2+ 24.Kxh2, White's bishop stops 24...Rh6#. 23...g5 was played to cut it off.
Nov-25-10  Elsinore: After 15. fxe4, you knew white was in for a world of hurt; most of his pieces are bunched up on his Queen side. Anyway, HAPPY THANKSGIVING everyone!!!!!!!

Nov-25-10  igiene: A good example of weakness of light squares after Fianchetto bishop elimination
Nov-25-10  WhiteRook48: oh, nice. pilgrim pun for thanksgiving

  Domdaniel: Once the Bishop goes, a fianchetto is just a bunch of holes. And if the enemy Bishop gets in there ... splat.

I'm reminded of something. Ah, yes, this: C Egan vs G McCarthy, 2007

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Have many other non-Yanks attended an American Thanksgiving celebration? If you have not, I strongly recommend that you add it to your List of Things to Do Before You Die, because their day-long eating festival shows off the Colonies at their best. On that day, even the American version of the sport of football looks good.

  OhioChessFan: A good example of why d4 must be followed by c4.
Nov-25-10  rapidcitychess: <An Englishman> Though I am an American, I think rugby is ultimately more interesting.

The point of 23...g5 was to <BLOCK> the c1-h6 diagonal.

24...Qxh2 was a nice touch. Pretty.

Nov-25-10  CapablancaFan122: In retrospect, white shouldn't have taken the knight on f3

  kevin86: A good Monday puzzle.

A very unthanksgivinglike pun:Pilgrim Scalped!
