  FSR: Cool game.
Jun-03-14  sevenseaman: Ingenious way to have the cake and eat it too!
Jun-30-16  Vibishana: Some of you have been complaining about the puns. Just go home already. Roll some dice or something. takes the cake with this one!
Jun-30-16  pkkandel: Welcome back <sevenseaman>. How you doing? And as far as the game is concerned, its a complete mess. A typical of my own game ( from black side, of course!).
Jun-30-16  The Kings Domain: Nice game. Attack and complexities galore with a nice finish.

Chessgames seem to have a graveyard fetish lately.

Jun-30-16  AlicesKnight: From the "Goon show" (BBC radio); scene, old backstreet Egyptian antiquarian shop. Enter Neddy Seagoon, relic hunter.

Seagoon; (in a low, furtive voice)"I'm looking - for a tomb."

Antiquarian; "In your condition - a wise move."

Perhaps Black also needed some wise moves, especially against the double bishop gifts.

Jun-30-16  Eusebius: Fantastic and extremely entertaining game. Black's play looks strong but was not consistent and balanced enough. Wow.
Jun-30-16  Party Animal: White is an attacking machine!

  kevin86: Why didn't black ever resign...until now? Was he waiting for the three additional queens that white was promoting to?

This is bad...should be

Jun-30-16  amateur05: Why not 14...axb5?
Jun-30-16  morfishine: I've heard of the term "House of Horrors"

"Tomb of Horrors???????????"...uh, no

"Ehh ... what a Maroun!"

Oh, that comment might have reduced your dinner dates by one when circumambulating the Mediterreanan.

Better have a few Snickers with you.

Jun-30-16  newzild: <morfishine> "Tomb of Horrors" was a scenario in the Dungeons and Dragons roleplaying universe.
Jul-01-16  Moszkowski012273: 29.d6+... is quicker.
Jul-01-16  Moszkowski012273: As is 34.pxp...
Jul-01-16  Moszkowski012273: AND 37...Nh3+ would of won this game for black!
Jul-15-16  newzild: <Moszkowski012273: AND 37...Nh3+ would of won this game for black!> I'm not sure I agree with your analysis. For example:

38. Kg2 Qxf2+

Or 38...Nxf2 39. Rc2 Qxe3 40. Rxf2

39. Kxh3 Qxe3
40. d7

It looks to me as though White should win easily.

Jul-19-16  Moszkowski012273: <newzild>---- Definitely NOT 38...Qxf2+

BUT---- 38...Nxf2 39.Rc2,Qf3+ is actually mating.

No way does should white of won this after 37.RxB...
