   Jan-19-20 Noon vs P Lamford, 1985 (replies)
thegoldenband: <An Englishman: Good Evening: Which seems more bizarre to you--the variations played or the variations unplayed? 9...Qh4+; 10.g3,fxg3; 11.Nf3,g2+; 12.Nxh4,gxh1/Q; 13.Bxg7 is a fresh take on an old trap.> As <goodevans> notes, that line falls apart after 11. cxd7+, ...
   Jan-18-20 Anna Kubicka vs S M Shyam, 2019 (replies)
thegoldenband: Oh, the game's not so bad (and the pun is charming). If nothing else, the knight offer on f2 is cute, since Black has a lethal mating attack after 18. Qxf2 Qc3! or 19. Qxf2 Rxb2+ 20. Bxb2 Qb8 21. Nxg7+ Kd8 when White is getting annihilated.
   Dec-24-19 Stahlberg vs Nimzowitsch, 1934 (replies)
thegoldenband: A great pun indeed!
   Dec-10-19 De Legal vs Saint Brie, 1750 (replies)
thegoldenband: Workin' blue, are we,
   Dec-10-19 John Penquite
thegoldenband: Also, an interesting, recent post about Penquite here: I'd forgotten, if I ever knew, that he stopped playing OTB because of a tobacco smoke allergy. The picture makes him look more than a bit like Terence Stamp as General Zod!
   Dec-10-19 J Penquite vs K A Anderson, 1949
thegoldenband: Penquite won a game in the very same line/with the same trap, exactly one week prior: J Penquite vs J Belzer, 1949 Identical through White's 12th move.
   Nov-11-19 U Rath vs Larsen, 1978 (replies)
thegoldenband: <<Granny O Doul:> I got the reference, but I still don't see in what sense Ulrik is a Mome Rath.> "Mome" I'm not certain about, but I think it's short for "from home" -- meaning that he'd lost his way, you know.
   Nov-05-19 W Adams vs W Shipman, 1948 (replies)
thegoldenband: Thanks, y'all, for the pun compliments! I think I submitted this one in 2014, and was pleased with it at the time, so it's nice to see it finally get its day. (And yes, the "Warren" and "Adams" parts were intentional, I'm pleased to say!)
   Oct-16-19 J Flesch vs N Spiridonov, 1964 (replies)
thegoldenband: Marvelous pun.
   Oct-15-19 Art Zhao vs D A Yeager, 2011 (replies)
thegoldenband: <I rather like the pun. "How Great Thou Art" often do we get a pun based on a Christian hymn?> You got one just 10 days ago! (I like the pun too, BTW)
