   Nov-12-18 M de Jong vs V Akotchik, 2008 (replies)
Granny O Doul: Black might also interpose the Q on move 42. When only the star move 43. dxe5! mates on the next turn.
   Nov-10-18 M Bednarska-Bzdega vs K Novacek, 2001
Granny O Doul: Sometimes the players aren't very good and as a result, neither are many of the moves. But in answer to the post just above, 14...Qa5 is better answered by 15. Qxe8#.
   Nov-10-18 C Boor vs J Kraai, 2004
Granny O Doul: Miles did try 4...f5 in an eventual rematch of his famous lost game to Walter Browne, and managed to draw the second time. Not to say the move shouldn't lose; maybe it should.
   Nov-09-18 Jansa vs T Harestad, 2017 (replies)
Granny O Doul: Scormus, your 23...Qxc6 (abandoning the f7 square) allows mate in one.
   Nov-09-18 Tarrasch vs Romberg, 1893
Granny O Doul: Yes, Black did have a chance to hold out one move longer had he found the brilliant series of "only" moves 27...Qf4! 28. Nf6+ Qxf6! 29. Qxb8+ Re8!! 30. Qxe8+ Qf8!!!. 31. Qxf8#. Perhaps he was 𝑒𝑟𝑠ℎ𝑜𝑝𝑓𝑡 after his long
   Nov-08-18 Ju Wenjun vs I Krush, 2018 (replies)
Granny O Doul: The attempt at defense with 47...Rc2 loses attractively to 48. b5.
   Nov-08-18 L Tolstoy vs A Maude, 1906
Granny O Doul: If this was a construction, it seems rather a pointless one. Nothing brilliant or interesting about it, other than the name of one of the players.
   Nov-08-18 Waitzkin vs E Frumkin, 1987
Granny O Doul: I suspect AJ is right about the "Searching..." title being the publisher's idea. Much of the book's material first appeared in a New York magazine article titled "The Grungy World of New York Chess". That probably would have had less Hollywood potential.

Granny O Doul: Is this the same Garma who used to go by "Raul" in Washington Square back in the 90s?
   Nov-07-18 M Cuellar Gacharna vs O'Kelly, 1954
Granny O Doul: Don't know, but he'd escape Roach Motel much more easily than from this position.
