   Granny O Doul has kibitzed 1958 times to chessgames   [more...]

Granny O Doul: Church's sponsored a number of things; for instance, a Larry Christiansen sumul tour in the late 70's, and they were the original sponsor of the USCF's grand prix in 1980, I think it was. Not sponsoring individual events, but paying prizes to the top ten or whatever number of ...
   Nov-06-22 O Chajes vs Marshall, 1918 (replies)
Granny O Doul: I don't know how much scrutiny the pun can stand, but I did laugh.
   Nov-05-22 Kavalek vs Benko, 1971
Granny O Doul: Maybe, or perhaps Black actually played 17...Kf8 (even for a prearranged draw, 18...e5?! seems extremely careless).
   Nov-03-22 B Amos vs Matulovic, 1970 (replies)
Granny O Doul: Black didn't wait for White to show him 69. b7. That's respect.
   Oct-29-22 Korchnoi vs Polgar, 1993
Granny O Doul: It's already over by that point. On 68...Kh8 White forces the queens off with Qe8+ and Qe7+.

Granny O Doul: I saw a copy of Albertson's "Savage Chess Openings Traps" (published 2017, printed 2018) at the library, and the cover, back cover, copyright page, all read as if the author were still alive. Perhaps they don't know?
   Oct-23-22 A Saidy vs Karpov, 1972
Granny O Doul: Karpov reports that Korchnoi gave him an angry glare after the same 2...b5 move; I wonder how Saidy reacted
   Oct-20-22 Sevian vs Niemann, 2022 (replies)
Granny O Doul: I also like "break king bad", though maybe it could use some punctuation, such as a dash or colon after "king". It reminds me of the Edmar Mednis book "How to Play Good Opening Moves", which is full of such wisdom as "if you leave pawns unprotected--this will be bad".
   Oct-19-22 J Sherwin vs G Kramer, 1957 (replies)
Granny O Doul: I'll admit I haven't heard much of Kramer in a while, but Sherwin was still playing blitz tournaments as late as this year.
   Oct-15-22 Short vs N Salimova, 2022 (replies)
Granny O Doul: I decided to test OCF's suggestion and chose a random game from 500 Master Games of Chess, then checked what the anagram generator could come up with. The random number generator chose game #106, and the anagram generator suggested "A Helena exile drank" vs. "Aw gee, lost king
