  morfishine: A gallant try with this pun, which sadly fails since there is not too much to conquer, what-with White tossing the game in offhand fashion having overlooked a shot.

More appropriate, taken from White's perspective would be:

"advenire, servo, erratum"

I arrived, I observed, I blundered

May-25-14  mrknightly: <morfishine> Have to disagree. Think it is one of the best puns ever. Also grammatically correct whereas your suggestion, not so much (infinitive; 1st person singular, active; singular noun).
May-25-14  goodevans: It seems <17.Nxe6> was the losing move. This move just couldn't be played until the white ♗ had cleared the back rank.

After 17.Nxe6 I can't find any improvements for white sufficient to hold the game (e.g.<19.Kh1 Qc2 20.Nc3 Qc1+ 21.Nb1 Nc2#>).

17.Nxe6 was a blunder, but black sure took advantage of it well.

May-25-14  Lil Swine: <morfishine> im going with <mrknightly> on that one. your pun is literally translated as: "to arrive,to the slave, blunder." more correctly would be: "adveni, spectavi, erravi."

  morfishine: <mrknightly> That was part of my little joke: Whats more atrocious: My Latin or White's blooper?

<Lil Swine> Thank you for the Latin brush-up! I barely passed my last Latin class 37 years ago, so admittedly my Latin skills are about as dead as the language itself

At first glance I agreed with <goodevans> namely that <17.Nxe6> is the "losing move" but then think perhaps more accurately would be to label <17.Nxe6> as the "final mistake". The point is that after 16.Rfd8, White has back-rank problems due his idle WSB; Furthermore, White is cramped with his Queen on the same diagonal as his WSB. What this means is White has been outplayed positionally and cannot meet the coming tactics. [ie: White erred prior to <17.Nxe6>]

Thank you, FSR. In my mind's eye I couldn't see 27...a5+. Your post allows me not to break out my engine.

Reminds me of an SNL bit about venereal disease from long ago:

"Veni, V.D., Vici" was 'translated' as "I came, I caught, I cankered"

And just using OE, 7.Bg5 at once is more solid than 7.dxc5 and by move 10, 10.e4 was necessary

Is there such a thing as too many beers while cooking out? I find it hard to believe

May-26-14  john barleycorn: too many beers when posting. I can relate to that.

  kevin86: The white king will not be mated in the corner, instead , he will be chased up the corridor and mated there.
