Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-14-06  Petrocephalon: Poison f2 pawn??

  An Englishman: Good Evening: 36...Rxc4 looks too risky. 36...Rbb8, ...Rbb7 or ...Qc6 might have been better. After the Marshall-like swindle 37.Ra8!, Black might as well have taken the Rook and prayed that White would take the perpetual (miracles sometimes happen).

  al wazir: I think 50...Rf1 would have been a lot better than Bf4. If 51. Kh5 then 51...Rf4 52. g3 (52. Qxh6/Kxh6 Rh4+) Rf3. If 51. Qxh6 then 51...Rf4+ 52. Kg3 (52. Kh5 Rh4+). White's ♙s are just as vulnerable as black's.

  offramp: Two superb names!

"Sanon Fodder. Starring Mondoly Sanon as White.... Victor Brig Brumo Marques as Black..."

Jun-14-06  EmperorAtahualpa: White's 36th move was great!!

I guess this pun refers to cannon fodder?

Jun-14-06  Jack Kerouac: <Offramp> And Jerry Mathers as The Beaver...
Jun-14-06  crptone: black here has played a horrible opening (looks like swiss cheese), but manages to equalize very well and gain the advantage. nevertheless a win is swindled by white with an easy attack on f7
Jun-14-06  Chicago Chess Man: Black's last move was a major blunder but the game was already lost. After Qd7+ and Qb5+, the rook is gone.

  kevin86: After white's 33rd move-look at all the heavy artillary along the b-file! 4 rooks and a queen!

Black has to correct compensation for a queen: rook,bishop,and pawn---but the bishop is so bad that it cannot defend the pawns on its own color squares! Could this bishop be beyond "bad" and into "ugly"?

Jun-14-06  dakgootje: You guys totally lost me on the pun
Jun-14-06  euripides: <dak> 'Cannon fodder': originally I imagine of troops who are thrown forward aggressively and sacrificed by daring, irresponsible or incompetent generals. As in Siegfried Sassoon:

<'He's a cheery old card', grunted Harry to Jack

As they trudged up to Arras with rifle and pack.

. . . .

But he did for them both with his plan of attack. >

British MPs are usually known as lobby fodder.

Jun-15-06  dakgootje: <euripides>thanks for the explanation, keep having a language problem with some english puns ;-)
