   Nov-23-20 P Maghsoodloo vs Carlsen, 2020
scutigera: Toodl-oo, 'soodloo.
   Nov-16-20 B Modr vs V Benes, 1981 (replies)
scutigera: Puns based on only one player's name and that don't reference the actual content of the game are bottom-drawer, certainly, but this one does have the virtue of being unusual, unlike the endless and endlessly dull ones based on the names of, e.g., Gyula Sax, or Reuben Fine. In ...
   Nov-13-20 H T Jacobsen vs H Ragnarsson, 2017 (replies)
scutigera: More than just tolerable, I'd say; there's been a marvelous streak of puns that actually reference the play, rather than just the players' names. Let's keep it up!
   Nov-13-20 Murey vs Nikitin, 1971 (replies)
scutigera: <TheaN>: "Potayto, potahto" generally gets the point across in American English, and if you like you can gussy it up even more, e.g. "po-TAY-to, po-TAH-to".
   Nov-12-20 P Dahms vs A Nickel, 1988 (replies)
scutigera: 22..Qxa2 allows the queen to escape along the a2-f7 diagonal, and she would arrive just in time for the king's funeral.

scutigera: "That is the trouble with many esoteric ideas; they fail against the moves a well-instructed child would pick." -- Reuben Fine
   Nov-07-20 I Yagupov vs A Rustemov, 1995 (replies)
scutigera: Just like most of the weekend puzzles - I rarely even try because even when I get the first move or two or three, there are so many complications that I can't see my way through to the end.
   Nov-06-20 Vladimir Kramnik
scutigera: <posoo>: To judge by the picture of him they're posting in his profile, apparently his tan has gotten so deep that FIDE just assumes he's an avatar of Vishy Anand.
   Oct-24-20 Kamsky vs Kramnik, 1994
scutigera: <Some have an idea GMs etc calculate everything or something like that.> Andy Soltis claims (yeah, yeah, he claims a lot of things) that he once convinced some people he was drinking with that new FAA regulations forbade GMs to calculate more than six moves ahead, as it ...
   Oct-14-20 D Djakova vs P J Draganova, 2001 (replies)
scutigera: Blunder, or cry of despair? The position after Black's 27th is a nice display of domination, as the bishop can't get out to attack Black's passers without giving up either pawns or time.
