  Phony Benoni: Well, there's got to be a little more to it than that, since Black can avoid that mate threat with <23...Re7>L

Now <24.Bxf5> is a possibility. The threat of 25.Rxg6+ is renewed (25...hxg6 26.Qh8+ Kf7 27 Qg7+ Ke8 28.Qg8#), and White also threatens 25.Rxe7 Qxe7 26.Be6+. 24...Rxe6 25.Bxe6+ is also hopeless, so I suppose Black might have to try 24...gxf5. Now White can simply regain the piece with 25.Rxd6 and his attak seems overwhelming, but I'm sure Our Ingenious Kibitzers will find better.

Eh? Oh, I see what you mean:

Oct-15-13  mike1: white is 2 pawns up anyway.... no counterplay for black at all... good enough to resign.

  kevin86: mate will come soonest at h8.
Oct-15-13  Shamot: Shamot: How does white respond to 23...Bf8 ?
If the immediate threat is 24.Rxg6 it can be replied with 24...Rg7. I do not see a clear mate.
Oct-15-13  Boelke: I agree that Bf8 makes blacks position much stinger and avoids mate.

  ajk68: The 23...Bf8 line avoids mate but it looks to lose another two pawns. A four pawn advantage is probably enough to win.
Oct-15-13  tivrfoa: what is interested about this game to be a game of the day that missed? seriously. please, anyone?
Oct-15-13  Shamot: <tivrfoa: what is interested about this game to be a game of the day that missed? seriously. please, anyone?>

It is probably the pun that qualified it as a GOTD.

Oct-16-13  Yerbamate: The pun is for the pronunciation? something like *The Light* at the end of the tunnel.
Jul-20-14  GumboGambit: <It is probably the pun that qualified it as a GOTD.>

Just noticed this game. I had submitted the pun for another Daulyte game. Lithuanians have good pun potential.

Given White's maiden name (Daulyte), not so much.
