  Phony Benoni: Horrible pun. They should have done something with Whit's name, like ... er, ... uh...

Great pun. Great pun.

A typical blitz game. White doesn't bother with opening finesses or positional niceties, but simply directs play into unknown channels and counts on being more tactically aware in crunch time.

I do wonder if 24.Re6 was the culmination of a deep combination or a lucky accident.

Dec-24-14  Cheapo by the Dozen: White was ahead in material even before Re6, not to mention having a rather strong initiative, so it doesn't have to have been planned.
Dec-24-14  morfishine: <Phony Benoni> Pretty darn good game, especially for Blitz
Dec-24-14  Conrad93: There must be some pun potential behind the name "Rustam."

  Penguincw: 19.Bxh6, and the pieces start turning into Pac Man; ignoring the opponent's threats and just taking what's in the way. Is there a name for that in chess?

Anyway, I gotta give it to the players for being able to calculate that fast, as at the end of it, white had a rook and 3 pawns vs. knight and bishop (which is somewhat equal), but soon after, it was a knight and 3 pawns vs. a bishop, which is an easy win.

P.S. <PB>, in case you haven't noticed, you made an error in the pun when entering it in your game collection. Also, December 22nd is listed twice. :)

I think you can use the term "Liquidation." I've also seen in some old chess books "when the smoke cleared."

"Najer here nor there..."?

Sorry: don't do puns, as a rule.

  Domdaniel: The end draws Najer as the flames grow hajer on the sacrificial pajer.
Dec-24-14  waustad: The pun would work better if the player had been Jan Hein Donner.

I invent my own terminology when none exists. I call that a capture-chain. It's the transitive closure of mutual threat :)

  Domdaniel: < ignoring the opponent's threats and just taking ... Is there a name for that in chess?> It could be called 'Excelsior' -- though that name is more usually applied to a series of pawn captures where each player goes his own way and the pawns end up promoting -- cf moves 15-20 in G McCarthy vs M Kennefick, 1977.
