  Messiah: The idea of this pun came from whiteshark in the M Graifer vs K Alekseenko, 2008 comments, I simply plagiarized it.

Thank you, whiteshark!

May-01-19  Ironmanth: I like this game! Great foresight, in a manner of speaking, to calculate the winning pawn endgame. Thanks, chessgames!
May-01-19  catlover: Good job on the game title. Like <Ironmanth> I really enjoyed the way Alekseenko simplified to a won ending.
May-01-19  An Indianman: Good evening: I wonder who should receive credit for this pun-the author or plagiarizer?
