   Nov-26-21 Nepomniachtchi vs Carlsen, 2021
thegoldenband: <Ulhumbrus: Carlsen has employed the resource ...Na5 against White's king's bishop more than once. This resource seems useful to know about.> A prescient comment!
   Nov-12-21 Ivanchuk vs Wolff, 1993
thegoldenband: <Teyss> Ah, glad to know that it's been confirmed that voting is essentially meaningless. I wish they'd update the pages to make that clear, since it's better to own the farce than to conceal it (the farce = voting, of course). And yeah, I'm not at all surprised that the
   Nov-01-21 M Yilmaz vs Nepomniachtchi, 2013 (replies)
thegoldenband: In the spirit of recent palindromic GOTD titles: "Opening Is Error. Resign! - I. Nepo"
   Sep-30-21 D Freeman vs K McDonald, 2011 (replies)
thegoldenband: Long ago (in 2014!) I submitted a "Stick A Fork In Me, You're Done" pun for S Bernstein vs E McCormick, 1940 but it was immediately deleted from my submitted pun list, as though it were obscene or offensive. I guess someone just had a fit of pique that day? In any event ...
   Jul-07-21 Averbakh vs Kholmov, 1947 (replies)
thegoldenband: I think something's going on with the site, but I have no idea what it is. Some maintenance clearly went on recently -- we saw a couple minor changes like the color of the puzzle diagrams -- so maybe something got broken or left on autopilot.
   Jul-05-21 Fischer vs Myagmarsuren, 1967 (replies)
thegoldenband: So, will this be the GOTD on July 6?
   Jul-02-21 Alekhine / Koltanowski vs Antwerp, 1934 (replies)
thegoldenband: In fact, more specifically, we're recycling puns from September 2018 at the moment: Game Collection: Game of the Day 2018
   Apr-18-21 S From vs Haagen, 1981
thegoldenband: Kind of amazing that we have a game here where "Sigfred" is killed by someone named Haagen. Life imitates Wagner!
   Mar-30-21 K Isgandarova vs Kosteniuk, 2012
thegoldenband: <HeMateMe: Is this groundhog day?> It's rather odd: yesterday, this was GOTD for about 8-10 hours, then it wasn't; and now today, it was GOTD for the start of the day, and then it wasn't. I guess my pun gets to accompany the "game of several parts of several days", which
   Mar-27-21 G Stalda vs C Benini, 1948 (replies)
thegoldenband: <piltdown man> and <Brenin> have it. In one of those Mandela Effect things, Lecter is often misquoted as saying "Hello, Clarice" -- but much like Darth Vader and "Luke, I am your father", the line never shows up in the film (nor book, I don't think). He does say ...
