  Phony Benoni: Recovered from the pun long enough to look at the game. One crucial point could be the position after <11...Bxe2>:

We have three prior games with this poistion, White playing 12.Qxe2 and scoring 2.5/3. While I doubt the line is really that good for White, Acs' <12.Nxe2> winds p losing a pawn. It could be a blunder, White missing that after <12...bxc4> he can't recapture becasue the ♗b2 hangs. Or perhaps Acs prepared the line and thought it gave White good attacking chances.

They never materialize, and Black's win seems almost routine. I hope I'm missing something, since I would like to see a pun like thins attached to a really good game.

  al wazir: Why didn't white play 31. Nxe6+ ? After 31...Kg8 32. Nf5 it looks about even. If 32...Rxa2 33. Nxd5, black can't play 39...a4 because of 40. Nc3.

  Phony Benoni: <al wazir> You meant 37.Nxe6+, in this posiiton?

In that case, it's a good question.

  Richard Taylor: No idea why he resigned but these GMs move in clever and mysterious ways. Good pun.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: I suppose black just goes behind the R pawn then pushes his central pawns.
Nov-18-13  morfishine: Black has an Acs to grind

  naresb: 12.Qxe2 was needed instead of 12.Nxe2. That could have helped to solidify his posiition.
Premium Chessgames Member
  naresb: After 31....Qb8, white could have used Queen-Rook combination to put preessure on blacks Nf6 first and then use White Queen-Knight combination with white Queen at h6 for black King's check. That could have opened many opportunities to White for tactical play.

  kevin86: Can I Acs you something:?

Why didn't white resign earlier?

Two EXTRA connected passed pawns should win easily,shouldn't it?

  Phony Benoni: OK. So we have one person wondering why White resigned in the final position, and one wondering why he didn't resign earlier.

I love Mondays.

Nov-18-13  donehung: Lol @ the pun.
Nov-18-13  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Poor old Péter Ács. His surname was already used here in puns instead of AXE (?!), now even instead of ASK (!?!), both far cry from correct pronunciation which is ATCH (or UTCH if you prefer). So, what's next? ACHE? AACHEN? ARK? Dear me.
Nov-18-13  N0B0DY: <Phony Benoni: OK. So we have one person wondering why White resigned in the final position, and one wondering why he didn't resign earlier.>

I think it's called <the Acs effect>.

  eternaloptimist: I love this verse!:
Nov-18-13  GumboGambit: Thanks for the pun compliments. Wanted to find one where both GMs could be applied.

<Autoreparaturwerkbau> In US street slang, it is common to mispronouce "ask" as "aks".

Nov-18-13  tivrfoa: <Phony Benoni: OK. So we have one person wondering why White resigned in the final position, and one wondering why he didn't resign earlier. I love Mondays.> and you? what's the continuation? thank you.
Nov-18-13  tivrfoa: after the exchanges I would go 44. ... Kf8 to attack the A pawn. hmmm yeah, no way to white promote.
Nov-19-13  bahduggi: Good pun, but I,d rather see a good game
Premium Chessgames Member
  al wazir: <Phony Benoni: You meant 37.Nxe6+, in this position?> Yes. Sorry about the confusion.
Nov-21-13  Moszkowski012273: White had a better continuation via 18.Qc6+ followed by 19.Qb7+ and 20.Nd4... Wins an exchange no matter how black plays.
