  An Englishman: Good Evening: Well, well, well. Here is a game featuring the Player of the Day, and the Opening of the Day, *and* the father of the Player of the Day. I would have loved to spy on the conversation on the way home from the game.

  Phony Benoni: "How many times must I tell you, son--don't fianchetto your rooks!"

"But Pop, all the other kids do it!"

"If all the other kids played 1.f3, would you play it?"

"Ah, Dad, you never let me have any fun."

"You kids don't know how lucky you are. Why, when I was your age, I had to go without fianchettoes at all!"

"Oh, here we go again. Next you'll be trying to scare me with those old fairy tales about Dr. Tarrasch the Bogeyman, and the Evil Capablanca Monster who wanted to use you for meat."

"At least they knew where to put their pieces!"

"You just wait. Someday will name me Player of the Day and you'll be sorry!"

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Phony Benoni, your hypothetical conversation sounds about right to me.

  whiteshark: Are there any other <Father vs Son> games in the database?

I've checked it already for Purdy and Paehtz

Sep-24-11  Marmot PFL: Don't know of any. Lots of Polgar-Polgar and some Lasker-Lasker family games.

  tpstar: Morphy vs A Morphy, 1848

Carlsen vs H Carlsen, 2007

There must be practice games between Ronald Finegold & Benjamin Finegold and Junior (Computer) & Deep Junior (Computer) kicking around but not in the database.

Sep-24-11  Marmot PFL: Games between members of the Littlewood family. Might be a dad and 2 sons but don't quote me.
Sep-24-11  Marmot PFL: <there are three strong littlewoods all british internationals john littlewood norman littlewood deceased johns brother
paul littlewood johns son >

Sep-24-11  Robed.Bishop: Well done, Phony.
Dec-16-12  brankat: Well, the Father did teach the Son a lesson :-)
Dec-16-12  Caissanist: One more father-son game is between these Argentine IMs: G Needleman vs A Needleman, 2005 .

Interestingly, strong sibling pairs are much more common than parent-child ones.

Dec-16-12  Caissanist: A game between a (now) IM father and his (now) GM son: C Cruz vs F Cruz, 2006 .
Dec-16-12  waustad: Artur Yusupov and his daughter Ekaterina Jussupow both play. By the way, FIDE now uses the German spelling of his name on their website. I don't know if they've ever faced each other in a tournament. Ana Bellon Cramling plays in a different section from her parents at Gibtel. If you want to look to the future for this, Gibraltar hosts 2 tournaments a year now that are very family friendly. How long until we see another generation of Cmilytes and Sockos on the scene?

  Honza Cervenka: FM Martin Pribyl is son of Josef Pribyl.

And of course, Pavel Blatny is son of Frantisek Blatny.

There must be plenty of games between them.
