LivBlockade: Wow! Quite an impressive collection! Thanks again.
 
   Apr-15-21 B Yildiz vs J Gokbulut, 2019 (replies)
 
LivBlockade: I had the idea for pun/GOTD. I don't know an easy way to search the database for games played on April 15th, so I suppose when I saw this game I felt it had enough merits to be at least good enough to submit and let the judges decide whether to choose it. It's an interesting ...

LivBlockade: Question for those of you who are mathematically inclined. I was trying to ballpark the maximum number of moves in a chess game without hitting the 50-move rule. Given the finite number of pawn moves and captures available, I came up with 6174. That's: 49 moves between each pawn

LivBlockade: I'll confess, the pun is also a play on words with Jersey Shore, the name of an American reality television series featuring characters including "Snooki' and "The Situation". That, combined with the fact that the game was played in New Jersey and the skill/confidence (Sure) ...
 
   Mar-30-21 Anderssen vs Mayet, 1855
 
LivBlockade: Van Wely vs Nunn, 1992 Loek b4 You Leap was a similar pun

LivBlockade: I still think the game score is wrong, as I commented on Mar-20-08 (13 years ago today!): <MostlyAverageJoe: Interesting game. I don't see any idea behind 16.cxb3 -- it takes away from the center and voluntarily pins the knight, inviting b4 and a loss of said knight -- even ...

LivBlockade: Seems like a game/attack/combination that a lot of people would be interested in, but I can't think of a decent GOTD title. Is there a way to nominate a game as a puzzle?

LivBlockade: We had a similar pun before: "While My Qatar Gently Weeps" Yu Yangyi vs Kramnik, 2014
 
   Jul-03-20 D E Cori Tello vs A Travkina, 2010 (replies)
 
LivBlockade: [DIAGRAM] Why not 54...Qxf6?
 
   Apr-20-20 Spassky vs Sunye Neto, 1986 (replies)
 
LivBlockade: Speaking of puns: J Sunye Neto vs O Cvitan, 1986
