  FSR: Time and Tide Wayte for No Man.
Jan-24-20  SeanAzarin: Look at the location of the White Queen in the final position. It is completely useless. Not having the Queen available for defense allowed Black to launch a devastating attack.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: How does Black refute 11.Qd5+? Seems as if the exposed Black King constitutes the only element in White's favor and Waste must continue checking.
Jan-24-20  kungfufighter888: the white queen is too adventurous !!!!!!!
Jan-24-20  Cheapo by the Dozen: Per the engine 11 Qd5+ wins handily for White.

  thegoodanarchist: Wayte for a second.
Jan-24-20  Cheapo by the Dozen: Now that I've discovered this player existed, I have a THIRD pun submission based on the Billy Joel song "Vienna Waits For You".
Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: A pun, further reflection: I probably should have kept my mouth shut.<FSR>;s is better.

  Breunor: 9 Bx b5 should be losing. Instead, Nd3! Scores at -5.
