   Aug-07-17 Bronstein vs Korchnoi, 1961 (replies)
Granny O Doul: I'm missing it too. What happens on 29. Qxb5?
   Jun-05-17 Karpov vs Alburt, 1980 (replies)
Granny O Doul: Alburt had arrived in the USA only the year previous, and I believe some of the others begrudged him the first board, and perhaps even his spot on the team. His USCF may well have been the highest; he did very well in his early swisses here. I always found him a bit ...
   Jun-02-17 Fischer vs Bisguier, 1963
Granny O Doul: I think I was remembering Soltis, who in turn I suppose was following Leopoldi. I fell asleep during both, so that's no help. And almost everyone is dead now.
   May-28-17 Mecking vs Korchnoi, 1974 (replies)
Granny O Doul: Odd moment for the game to end. If White offered, you'd think Black would have said "make your move and I'll think about it". But if Korchnoi was in his usually time pressure, it's hard to imagine he'd have had the composure to say "with this move, I offer a draw" on the last ...
   May-22-17 Z Izoria vs J Bonin, 2015 (replies)
Granny O Doul: More likely this is where the scoresheets became illegible--the modern-day version of "here the game was abandoned due to the lateness of the hour".
   May-22-17 Paul Keres
Granny O Doul: I just learned that Keres is the fourth-most spoken language in New Mexico. I couldn't wait to share the good news here.
   May-21-17 Ilyin-Zhenevsky vs F Bohatirchuk, 1924 (replies)
Granny O Doul: True (I assume, without knowing German), CHC, but Terry Britten and Graham Lyle made the same error of usage in "What's Love Got to Do with It?"
   May-15-17 D J Strauss vs Short, 1984
Granny O Doul: Um, having just read his bio here, I may have sold short his American Open laurels. But could he really have won seven times?!
   May-07-17 A Keatinge-Clay vs H Happel, 2000
Granny O Doul: Seven pieces on the back rank, and yet, back rank weakness.
   May-07-17 D Edelman vs Alburt, 1991
Granny O Doul: Still seems too difficult. Go into the rook ending only when you are three pawns up.
