  perfidious: 'Unimpressive' seems a good characterisation of the play in this affair.

Jul-03-14  Jim Bartle: Come on. It was a bullet game. Dum-dum bullets.

(Joke lifted from "Roger Rabbit.")

Jul-03-14  zanzibar: Don't wanna be a scrooge about it, but I wouldn't mind ducking this game - by a couple of quacks. All I can really say is that it was animated while it lasted.

Somebody must have waddled a bit over the board to transcribe the moves - with nary a foul.

Pretty crazy position if you ask me.

Jul-03-14  Shams: White could have played 25.Rxh7, but he was after bigger game than the poultry win of a kingside pawn.

  perfidious: <Shams> Ah'll tell yew what-Ah lahke poultry, but not poultry wins. Gimme the big stuff!
Jul-19-14  Mr. V: Shams is right. While Donald is really more of a spectator, he is standing on the white side - there is nothing at all that makes us believe he played black (or red, as shown in the video).

White has 22.Ne6+ instead of 22.Nd5+.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Weirdly enough the Rook & 2 vs. Rook endgame is not without interest, but both sides play rather poorly.
Dec-21-14  shoshonte: I just check this page! I was the one who submitted it! so happy it actually got posted. There's a tradition at my school that every year on the last day before Christmas break, we would watch Donald Duck in Mathmagic Land. One of my friends who is in the USAFA said that his calc teacher did the same thing. Such a nostalgic short film for me. What's next? Tiddlywinks?
Dec-26-14  AlbertodaCruz: 46...Ka8

  Domdaniel: 22.Nd5+ is OK, but 22.Ne6+ is better.

Duck, you sucker!
