  piltdown man: Is it the week for lame puns based on "The English Patient" film?
Dec-20-18  ChessHigherCat: I guess that must be the justification because although I generally dislike the term "coffeehouse chess" it's the only way to describe this lame game.
Dec-20-18  sudoplatov: This must but the tournament where Schottländer beat Englisch.
Dec-20-18  clement41: I can’t help but draw a comparison with that famous game from Botvinnik: Botvinnik vs G A Thomas, 1936
Dec-20-18  TheTamale: <piltdown man>: No, apparently it is the week for awesome puns based on "The English Patient."
Dec-20-18  thegoodanarchist: <piltdown man: Is it the week for lame puns based on "The English Patient" film?>

I will only say that it is the week for puns based on a lame movie.

Dec-20-18  Swedish Logician: The English Patient, surely, is a NOVEL, by Michael Ondaatje, and the film is based on that.
Dec-20-18  TheBish: White missed a crusher: 48. Nh5! Rxg1 (or 48...Rf8 49. Nxf6+ Rxf6 50. Rg7+ Kc8 51. Rg8+ Kd7 52. Rb8, winning the b-pawn and soon the game) 49. Nxf6+ Ke6 50. Kxg1 Kxf6

51. d5! and a pawn will break through to queen.

  FSR: <thegoodanarchist> I wholeheartedly agree with your assessment of the movie <The English Patient>.

  Honza Cervenka: To grab the Pawn by 19...Qxa2 is not good for 20.Nc4 Re6 21.Qg4 h5 22.Qh3 Re7 23.g4 with attack.

  Honza Cervenka: <White missed a crusher> Of course, 48.Nh5 was more elegant and quicker finish of the game but the Knight ending is utterly won for white as well, so it does not matter much here.
