  An Englishman: Good Evening: Very fine pun, <th3doctor>! And for an interesting game, too!
Jun-01-15  offramp: Yes, I agree. Good one, <th3doctor>.
Jun-01-15  hadi706: واقعا که بازی جالبیه
Jun-01-15  th3doctor: Thank you, thank you. Very interesting piece sacrifice by Peter to get the giant pawn armada rolling down the center. I'm skeptical of the opening play by both sides, but an impressive middle game idea for a blitz game.
Jun-01-15  mruknowwho: I was trying to figure out why White was giving his knight to Black, and as the game progressed, I came to the realization that Black's extra bishop can't really do anything.

  thegoodanarchist: Nice conversion of the unbalanced material advantage conferred by the pawns. And in a blitz game, no less! Good job, Svidler.
Jun-01-15  Cheapo by the Dozen: Definitely a blitz game; I doubt the original piece sacrifice was really sound.

Nice one ... and yes, great pun.

Jun-01-15  jith1207: Could some one explain the Pun, please? Sorry, no idea what it relates to.

  HeMateMe: It's a reference to Paul McCartney's Band on the Run album. It's a sort of "Man on the Rauf", instead of Band on the Run. Pretty subtle, easy to miss.

  OhioChessFan: Wow, someone likes the pun? Oy vey.
Jun-01-15  JohnBoy: Fiddler on the Roof, dudes. Totally predictable given the name of the winner.

Jun-05-15  jith1207: Thank you <HeMateMe>.
Jun-05-15  JohnBoy: <jith> - HMM is totally wrong on this one. See my above comment.
