  FSR: Greenfeld Got Run Over by a Reinderman.
Dec-26-17  Strelets: The people who tell you not to trade off your fianchettoed dark-squared bishop when the other one is still on the board are your friends. Listen to them.
Dec-26-17  Chessky: Why not 27. Qh7?
Dec-26-17  nisharaj31: Why not 25. Qh6?

  FSR: <nisharaja31> Black responds with 25...Qc5+ followed by 26...Qf8.

<Chessky> 27.Qh7 is illegal. Presumably you meant 27.Qh6, which is met by 27...Qf8.

  OhioChessFan: Terrific pun. I have a few hundred pun suggestions scattered all over the site. I think 2 have been chosen. :p

  OhioChessFan: If 25. Qh6 Qc5+ then Qf8

  FSR: <OhioChessFan> I trust that you also formally submit your puns on the Pun Submission Page?

  OhioChessFan: Nope. My perception is that feature is never used. Based on a few occasions I rated puns, I think people probably fall asleep after about 5 minutes anyway.

I've submitted all my puns to the Pun Submission Page, and chessgames.com has used 123 of them.

The <Pun Submission Page> is not used as a source of puns and that is easy to prove. How can a pun be invented on December 23rd and then on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day receive such an avalanche of votes that it is used on Boxing Day?

In fact, what happens is that whoever is in charge of choosing today's pun looks at <FSR>'s recent kibitzing to see if there is anything vaguely Christmassy.

That's a far more rapid way than trawling through thousands of entries on the <Pun Submission Page.>

  FSR: Many of my puns have been used years after I submitted them. I have no idea whether they were picked based on reviewers' votes or some other criterion.

Recent ones <cannot> be reviewers' votes.

Have a look at L Dubeck vs R Weinstein, 1958. You submitted a pun on December 10th 2017. It was GoTD on 12th December 2017; less than two days later! That would necessitate a Tunguska-Joseph Kennedy avalanche of votes in a day and a half if the Pun Submission Page was involved.

The problem for fans of Krakatoa is that Tunguska is more recent AND more mysterious than Krakatoa. Thus, Tunguska has replaced Krakatoa as the massive explosion of choice in popular analogies.

Dec-26-17  TheTamale: When Black plays 29) ...Rg7, what is he specifically trying to prevent? Thanks.
Dec-26-17  sfm: <TheTamale: When Black plays 29) ...Rg7, what is he specifically trying to prevent? Thanks.> Well, if it was White to move then Qf6 would be mate in a few moves. After -,Rg7 Qf6 Black now has -,Qe7.
But yeah, didn't help much. :-)
Dec-26-17  ChessHigherCat: Wasn't Reindeerman the millionaire drug dealer with the harem in the David Lynch movie "Wild at Heart"? I always thought that "Reindeer Man" was a clever allusion to Santa Claus. but it must be a real name. I just checked and he's really called Mr. Reindeer in the movie, but who knows.
Dec-26-17  TheTamale: Thanks, <sfm>. Seems a better alternative would've been 29)... Qe7 straight away, but I'm probably just overlooking something else.

  FSR: offramp: my guess is that Daniel Freeman periodically checks the recent submissions to the Pun Submission Page and that if he sees one he really likes he grabs it and makes it GOTD without waiting for people to vote on it.
Dec-26-17  dumbgai: What a one-sided beatdown. Black looks like he was never even in the game.
Dec-26-17
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: That's my thought too <FSR>. Anyway, when I read it December 23, I thought it had a shot of being used quickly.

  FSR: <TheTamale> 29...Qe7 30.Qh6 (threatening Qh8#) Qh7 (30...Qg7 31.Bxg7 is only a nominal improvement) 31.Qf8# or Rf8#.

  OhioChessFan: Per Daniel Freeman, I suspect he also notices them on recent kibitzing.
Dec-27-17  TheTamale: Thanks, <FSR>. I find as I get older that I tend to overlook pieces that aren't right in the fray... in this case, the White rook on f2. Sigh...
