  An Englishman: Good Evening: What does Black do after 28.h4? Thought that White had to do something to keep the g-file closed.
Aug-08-20  jith1207: Looks like the player name might be wrong, if the post in the player page is correct and the right player associated with the game is actually Reedik End - this player ID was created long long back than the presumably duplicate one. Perhaps the person uploaded the only game of this player didn't do it right?

Game seems good (not so for White's play) but the pun might not work if the player name is incorrect.

Aug-08-20  Ironmanth: What blows to end this; great game. Thanks, chessgames. Y'all stay safe out there in chessland today. Take care!
Aug-08-20  Brenin: After 28 h4, Black can have a draw by 28 ... Qd7, attacking the N on b5, so that if 29 a4 or Nc6 then 29 ... Qg4+ with a draw by repetition. I'm not sure whether Black has anything better than this. However, if 29 Nc3 then Black has Bd4+ available if the White K goes to f2 or g1, so that 29 ... Qg4+ now wins for Black.
Aug-08-20  V Geriakov: White's 17 move seems too superficial . The idea of h4 was not needed at the moment because the k-side was fairly well secured . 17.Qc1 , preventing 17...Bh6 seems more appropriate . That said , obviously 17...Bh6 seems fine after 17.Rh1 .

  offramp: Kraftwerk did a great song called <Trans Europa Express>.

I first smooched along to that merry old ditty in its English version.

Many years later I heard the German original version, where "Europa" is pronounced "Oy-roper".

That is how those crazy middle oyropeans say oyrope. The currency in the oyro! Who would have faith in that?

So the name R Eud would be said as "R Oyd."

ROID is a slang term for a human disorder, known in rhyming slang as the <FARMER GILES> or the <CHALFONTS>.

Whatever name they have, they are painful, especially when awakened, as suggested by today's title.

  MKD: Why didn't White play 12.g5? Can someone help? Please.

  offramp: I had a look at White's place of birth. There is only one comment at his player page:

<Chessdreamer: this player is <Reedik End>, acc. Olimpbase.>

<Miss Scarlett>, If his name is <R End> then I am afraid your wee pun needs some tweaking.

  MissScarlett: If memory serves, I think I submitted this effort after seeing <Chessdreamer>'s post. I already had a couple of puns where a player's name turned out to be wrong; I thought it'd be nice to go for the hat-trick.
Aug-08-20  jith1207: That's perfect, I remember only the last two of the hat-trick, G Kane or Eig and this one.

<then I am afraid your wee pun needs some tweaking>

Why tweak the pun when you can tweak the player's name?

  OhioChessFan: <MKD> 12...Nh5 in response would be a problem. The h5 Knight would be pretty much unassailable there, while being a constant threat of Nf4 or Ng3.
Aug-08-20  newzild: <MKD: Why didn't White play 12.g5? Can someone help? Please.>

After 12.g5 Nh5, black can jump his knight into f4, forcing white to capture it. Black recaptures with his e-pawn, opening the long diagonal for his bishop.

In a broader strategic sense, White wants to block the kingside so he can play freely on the queenside without a counter-attack on his king. Playing his pawn to g5 will expose it to attack and, after White defends it with h4, Black plays h6 to open lines on the kingside.

  MKD: <OhioChessFan> and <newzild> Thanks a lot to both of you. Your explanation is quite lucid. Thanks again.
Aug-09-20  Atking: A great fight! White should matured his advantage and not be hurry to play g5. 24.Qg3 then h4-h5 If necessity is asking Rag1-Rh2 Kh1 White has a very serious advantage at this stage.
