   Oct-18-21 Shirov vs Azmaiparashvili, 2003
 
Granny O Doul: Too aggressive, or, if you prefer, insufficiently pusillanimous.
 
   Oct-18-21 J L Watson vs S Cronick, 1966 (replies)
 
Granny O Doul: Cronick pain.
 
   Oct-15-21 Miles vs R Byrne, 1986
 
Granny O Doul: @sudoplatov: And I agree. But what's the point of posting a long analysis where Black immediately surrenders his queen?

Granny O Doul: The knight can't dance at two weddings, as the FM Asa Hoffmann is wont to observe.
 
   Oct-10-21 Gufeld vs Petrosian, 1969
 
Granny O Doul: "World Champion" is a title of respect often accorded to exes, though I don't know I'd expect the same enhanced effort from the hockey players.
 
   Oct-04-21 Evans vs H Opsahl, 1950 (replies)
 
Granny O Doul: The site chess-world.com says "this variation (1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.cxd5 exd5 5.Bg5 c6 6.e3 ) became popular during the strong tournament which was held in Carlsbad in 1929". I gave up after not finding a single example among the first 100 games of the tourney, but ...

Granny O Doul: @beatgiant: The time control at Curacao was the then-standard 40 moves in 2.5 hours. White's 41st was the first move that could potentially be sealed.
