Oct-29-06  sneaky pete: The finest hour of the Corn Stalk Defence.
Oct-29-06  Open Defence: white surprisingly never tries to exploit the b5 square...
Oct-31-11  YoungEd: Ware are the good puns?
Oct-31-11  Oceanlake: Or roll up the king's side.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: It's interesting to speculate at what point had Black recovered from his own opening and taken the advantage. His blockade of the passed e-pawn with 23...Ne6 and the ensuing undermining of its supporting pawns would have impressed Nimzowitsch, esp. if Nimzo had played the game himself.
Oct-31-11  MatrixManNe0: Anyone else notice the opening's ECO? Fitting.
Oct-31-11  rilkefan: Should have gone with Solomon Grundy for Halloween, e.g. Buried on Sunday".

  HeMateMe: Kongress? Is that like in the movie where Russia took over the United States?
Oct-31-11  whiteshark: Anyone a-ware of the winning move <37.Ne6!>?

Oct-31-11  Pantagruel: Well said, Englishman, especially your closing thought. Even Nimzo himself would crack a smile. YoungEd: Note today's player of the day.
Oct-31-11  knighterrant999: Grundy lost this game, but I believe he tied for first with Captain George MacKenzie in this tournament, necessitating a playoff.
Oct-31-11  kevin86: Black was "none the worst for ware" after his first move.
Oct-31-11  moi: <MatrixManNe0: Anyone else notice the opening's ECO? Fitting.>

well done ;)

Peculiar indeed. After 10. Nh4 Qh4 11. g3 Qd8 12. Nb5 White has an overwhelming position.
