Mar-16-13  hellopolgar: I suppose this is related to the pun?
Mar-16-13  hellopolgar: the trick in the end is 36. f8N+ instead of 36. f8Q?

  WannaBe: That is just bad, bad, horrible pun. Just bad.

  AylerKupp: Yes, bad, bad, horrible pun. I love it!
Mar-16-13  Tired Tim: In China with no access to Youtube - please unravel the pun (don't suppose it's a reference to some sort of sausage?!)
Mar-16-13  DummyPawn: I smiled too widely at the pun not to comment.
Mar-16-13  morfishine: Horrible bun, just horrible

  Phony Benoni: <Tired Tim> The pun is based on a memorable (in this part of the world, at least) advertisement for hot dogs (also known as wieners) from the Oscar Mayer Company. It featured children singing a song with the line, <"I wish I were an Oscar Meyer wiener.">

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Classic example of a Chessgames pun at its best worst. Or is it "worst best?" Good game, too.
Mar-16-13  morfishine: <Phony Benoni> Most people will relish this pun
Mar-16-13  Tired Tim: <Phony Benoni> Thanks ... you know, I'm so slow, I think we have had this pun and I asked exactly the same question! (and got the same answer!)

  scormus: Nice game, shame about the pun

  Gilmoy: White mustered his pieces, assaulted the kingside, and peppered it with pawn thrusts. Black's defense could not catch up.
Mar-16-13  morfishine: <Gilmoy> My condiments on such a great punning sentence!

  Richard Taylor: I've never seen an advert for hot dogs but I believe they are an American disease.

Good game by Huebner.

He didn't have a lot of luck in his career.

Mar-16-13  morfishine: <Richard Taylor> Interesting comments: <I've never seen an advert for hot dogs but I believe they are an American disease> Disease is a good word unless one is consuming the highest quality hot dog...most are confabulations of leftover scraps

<He didn't have a lot of luck in his career> Accurate to say the least and hard to figure out; unless its simply a matter of nerves and not being able to maintain form under pressure; this is evidenced by his prowess as an analyst, something thats devoid of pressure

Mar-16-13  Infohunter: <Richard Taylor: I've never seen an advert for hot dogs but I believe they are an American disease.>

There's just nothing quite like a hot dog in the ballpark.

I remember the ad posted by <hellopolgar> firsthand from the days of my youth. Not my favorite brand--I much preferred Farmer John, but my favorites are, of course, Ball Park Franks (a brand name in its own right). Their slogan, "They plump when you cook 'em!" is an accurate one. Delicious!

  FSR: Nice game! Real hot dog chess by Ostermeyer.
Mar-16-13  Shams: Frankly speaking, this was a heck of a game. White must have relished playing his finishing blows against the enemy king.
Mar-16-13  vsiva1: 35. ...Qxg6? then what next either 2 side each queen. after white taking bishop. how white wins.
Mar-16-13  goodevans: <vsiva1> See <hellopolgar>'s second kibitz, right at the top.

was pointed out earlier by <hellopolgar>: <36.f8N+!>

  FSR: White mustered his forces for attack. Black surrendered the exchange, and frankly could never catch up after that. White played like a hot dog, relishing every move. Black, in a pickle, resigned. White exulted, "I am an Ostermeyer winner!"
Mar-16-13  morfishine: <FSR> Yes, Pickle! The missing condiment. One things for sure, this wasn't a dill game at all
