   Granny O Doul has kibitzed 853 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jan-18-19 Tal vs Klovans, 1958 (replies)
 
Granny O Doul: "Totally lost" sounds about right.
 
   Jan-17-19 Fischer vs Shocron, 1959 (replies)
 
Granny O Doul: <There's no Blackstone game in My 60MG.> I demand a refund.
 
   Jan-15-19 Arnold Agree
 
Granny O Doul: I don't want to go all morbid by linking to legacy.com but the dates b. Jun 12, 1929 d. Sep 2, 2013 are thanks to them. In Malcolm Gladwell's "Outliers", he argues that for reasons I don't remember, 1930 was a fortuitous time for a Jewish lawyer to be born in New York City. ...
 
   Jan-14-19 M Holly vs M Bezuch, 2000
 
Granny O Doul: I wonder why (a) anyone would look at or kibitz this game at all, and (b), why only in January or February?
 
   Jan-14-19 T Harutyunian vs P Qalagashvili, 2018 (replies)
 
Granny O Doul: Three points would be quite a lot. The actual final position though is only a two point spread, according to the counting method I learned. However, White on move is about to play 35. Bxf6 followed by 36. Ra6 winning a whole piece and leaving Black super-hopeless.
 
   Jan-14-19 Raven Sturt
 
Granny O Doul: His mother is an author. I noticed a book of hers in the racks outside the Strand on Broadway. It opens with a fourth-grade NYC schoolteacher atop a classroom desk, which she has climbed in a desperate attempt to escape from her students.
 
   Jan-12-19 Bisguier vs Larsen, 1965
 
Granny O Doul: 14...Bh8 was an impressive move, in a losing cause.
 
   Jan-11-19 Yusupov vs Gulko, 1990 (replies)
 
Granny O Doul: CHC: The fly in the ointment there is 35..Kxf7! 36. Bxc4+ Ke8. f7 may be "the most vulnerable square", but there are times when it can take care of itself.
 
   Jan-09-19 Khosro Harandi
 
Granny O Doul: "Holy Harandi!", as Chessman once said.
 
   Jan-08-19 Short vs Judit Polgar, 2001 (replies)
 
Granny O Doul: I'm not seeing any isolated pawns in the line given just above, but I think I recognize the position after 8. Qf2 as Benjamin-Rachels, New York 1983. But now I'm off to smell the roses.
