  Messiah: 'Kellogg's Hoorn Flakes'

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Nice game title and a nice game, but what amazes me most consists of the year, 1923. Beffie transposed into the Reti-Smyslov Variation (1.Nf3,Nf6; 2.g3,g6; 3.b4) after 6.Bg2.

Smyslov's age in 1923? 2. From what little we have, Beffie seems to have played quite a strong game of chess with a good feel for hypermodern play.

  FSR: Absurd pun, but an interesting game.

  Messiah: By far the worst pun ever, but it was a great fun to check the game.
May-12-21  AlicesKnight: A very pretty finish; the sequence from 30.Rxb8 is fascinating.
May-12-21  Brenin: Interesting game, terrible pun. After the Q sac followed by 31 Rxc8+, Black's alternative of blocking the check with 31 ... Ne8 was no better than the 31 ... Re8 played, since White has 32 Bxc5 followed by Nb6 and advance of the a- or d-pawn.
May-12-21  newzild: Interesting game. Terrible pun. Would have been better without the irrelevant 'Kellog's'.
May-12-21  Ironmanth: Slick trick to finish! Thanks, chessgames. Y'all continue to stay safe out there today.
May-12-21  Cheapo by the Dozen: Hoorn had an insolulable dilemma.
May-12-21  ajile: Clever move order by White allows him to establish a pawn on c5. Then 15..d4 frees up c4 for White's knight to hop c4-d6 with nasty consequences. White then finds the right tactics to win the game.
