   Mar-09-18 E Sevillano vs D Lucky, 2012 (replies)
Granny O Doul: Regarding "punk", Johnny Rotten once reported--'I don't give a damn about the name punk. I never did. It's a label that was assigned to us by the journalist Caroline Coon. It's an American word for a male prostitute in prison. I don't want to be no king of that! You can shove ...
   Mar-06-18 Lombardy vs Reshevsky, 1956 (replies)
Granny O Doul: I wonder if Lombardy ever realized what he missed here? I forgot to ask him about it the last time I saw him.
   Mar-05-18 Carlsen vs H Olafsson, 2018 (replies)
Granny O Doul: I sensed after 28...Kh8 that White just had to calculate another couple of accurate moves. As for doing the grunt work, I leave that to others.
   Feb-28-18 Spassky vs Stein, 1964 (replies)
Granny O Doul: ...exf4 on move 25 looks quite strong. If White plays 26. Qh3, with the threat on h8, there comes ...f3+ and if 27. Qxf3 then ...Qb5+, with ...Rd3 coming.
   Feb-28-18 Ftacnik vs Gotti, 1987 (replies)
Granny O Doul: That's sticking it to him!
   Feb-27-18 Smyslov vs Browne, 1970
Granny O Doul: Either 12..Bh3 or 13..Nd7 would run into a quite annoying Nd5. I'm not sure how important Black's apparent time loss was but sometimes it doesn't take much.
   Feb-26-18 Rovinj/Zagreb (1970)
Granny O Doul: Well, "How to Beat the Russians in Chess" had not yet been published.
   Feb-26-18 E Terpugov vs Petrosian, 1957
Granny O Doul: <PhilFeeley> Perhaps it is meant to evoke "I am Spartacus", though the change from "I" to "this" rather diminishes the line's force.
   Feb-25-18 Korchnoi vs Spassky, 1973 (replies)
Granny O Doul: I believe it was Korchnoi who offered the draw. At least, so he wrote in his book. He also said that his last move cost him most of his advantage.
   Feb-21-18 Richard Costigan
Granny O Doul: He was also part of the all-Costigan US Amateur Team champs in, maybe 1983?
