  Teyss: <Don't understand.>
"The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
..." Also see below.

<Ditto unless it's a general reference to Tal magic.> 🤦‍♂️ "You must take your opponent into a deep dark forest where 2+2=5" said by... guess who. Also look at the player's name and number of moves.

<Not a pun.> 🤦‍♂️ Look at the capitals and the players' names.

That's what I though, too cultural and subtle for you. Will stick to "Playing for the Throne" type.

  Teyss: <saffuna> Looked at your submission in the list, "Hera's Revenge" is excellent but probably too subtle for Missy. For her defence, it is a partly hidden reference.

But that's the point of many of the better puns.

And, where do I find that list?

  Teyss: <saffuna: But that's the point of many of the better puns.> Agreed but apparently not for Her Majesty.

<And, where do I find that list?> https://www.chessgames.com/perl/sho... Courtesy of Her Highness.

Now we have to be fair to Missy, she has hundreds of puns to review whilst we just enjoy/bash one per day, having all the time to appreciate/criticise its humour/inanity, hence in her haste she could be missing half-hidden gems.

  Fusilli: Cool list (yes, mortality statistics are cool). Over a decade ago, I gathered all dates of birth and death (when applicable) of all grandmasters and calculated the grandmaster life expectancy.

Because of the small dataset, especially for the early years, when there weren't that many grandmasters, I could only produce overall average estimates for the period 1950-2009, and another one for the 2000-2009 decade. (These are not single numbers. It is not life expectancy at birth because no one is a GM at birth. Each is a series of estimates of life expectancy at various adult ages.)

I wanted to test whether GMs fit the "starving artist" stereotype of talented people (at something very specific but not particularly rewarded by the market or society) and maybe that was reflected in their life expectancy.

After the number crunching, this is what I wrote back then in a summary report: "their life expectancies in 1950-2009 are consistently higher than for U.S. white males in 1979-1981, and their life expectancies in 2000-2009 also exceed those of U.S. white males in 2006." It seems that, collectively, GMs actually did better than average U.S. white males. And U.S. white men are, globally speaking, a privileged bunch in terms of life expectancy. So, no starving artist narrative there.

I thought of developing it into an article for Chess Life, but I got busy with my actual research and dropped it. Now that I can have 13 more years of data, I may give it another try.

  MissScarlett: < It seems that, collectively, GMs actually did better than average U.S. white males. >

Appreciate that average life expectancies for entire populations include infant/child mortality. This will skew the figures lower than for select groups which, by definition, require a certain maturity. Given the rapid decline in child mortality over the last century, this effect will have increasingly diminished.

<And U.S. white men are, globally speaking, a privileged bunch in terms of life expectancy.>

One might contend that white males have been the group most responsible for the rapid increase in global life expectancy in the last couple of centuries.

  Fusilli: <Appreciate that average life expectancies for entire populations include infant/child mortality.>

That would be life expectancy at birth, but I estimated life expectancy at a range of adult ages, and compared with same.

For example, when I did this, US male life expectancy at age 50 was 29.0 (data from 2006 death rates by age). For GMs, I estimated 30.5 in the 2000-2009 period, and 28.31 for the whole period I considered (1950-2009).

Talking about it makes me want to go back to it, update it, and try to get it published.
