   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)
   Sep-08-19 Edinburgh vs London, 1824 (replies)
thegoldenband: <<AylerKupp:> As an aside, does anyone know of a game featuring quadrupled pawns? That would certainly be unusual.> I think there have been a number of them, of which G M Kovacs vs R Barth, 1994 is the best known since (as Tim Krabbé noted) the quadrupled pawns ...
   Aug-25-19 Kasparov vs D Letterman, 1990 (replies)
thegoldenband: "Stupid Human Tricks"
   Jul-21-19 Grischuk vs Yu Yangyi, 2019 (replies)
thegoldenband: Did somebody say "Yu Who?"
   Jun-14-19 Younes Foughali vs C Woojin Yoo, 2016 (replies)
thegoldenband: A lot of these comments seem off-the-wall until you realize the score has been corrected (rather quickly, I might add), so that moves like 21...Qxe5 now make no sense.
   Mar-05-19 Carlsen vs Radjabov, 2012 (replies)
thegoldenband: Important note: I originally submitted this as "Who Knows <Ware> the Teim Goes?", which may not improve the pun but certainly increases its relevance. <Check It Out: <thegoldenband> is getting some serious pun credit these days. What’s the story?> Your guess ...
   Jan-16-19 Yifan Hou vs Navara, 2016
thegoldenband: Thank you, <offramp>! Some of these were submitted years ago, so it's a bit surreal (but a very nice surprise) to see them again. <morfishine>, quite right. Not sure I knew that back in 2015, but I certainly do now. Still, I'd probably grit my teeth and force the ...
