   Mar-16-23 Duda vs G Gajewski, 2016 (replies)
thegoldenband: Love the palindrome!
   Mar-04-23 P Lalic vs A Lundback, 2021 (replies)
thegoldenband: The Back Story:
   Feb-19-23 Ganguly vs A Adly, 2012
thegoldenband: <faulty: I'd say the song by Savage Garden> Nope, <Jamboree> had it right, I had the movie starring Alan Rickman in mind. It may be obscure now -- but perhaps it was less so 10 years ago, when I originally submitted the pun! (That's only slight hyperbole: I keep a ...
   Feb-13-23 C Belcher vs J Fang, 2001

   Jan-24-23 G Fraser vs S Matthews, 2000

   Jan-16-23 F Duz-Khotimirsky vs Maroczy, 1908 (replies)
thegoldenband: "Golden Arches": if you turn the board -- or your head -- on its side, the (near-symmetrical) final position looks like the sign for McDonald's.
   Jan-01-23 Bereziuk vs A Izhnin, 1976 (replies)
thegoldenband: <faustr: The pun refers to the subtitle of GM Polugayevsky's excellent book, "Grandmaster Preparation". It chronicles the remarkable effort it took to prove that 7....b5 was a viable variation.> Oh, good catch! Particularly given the game variation, I think you're right:
