   Granny O Doul has kibitzed 1023 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-16-19 J Cori vs N Huschenbeth, 2012 (replies)
Granny O Doul: Note that 63...h1Q fails to win after 64.Rg8+.
   Oct-15-19 Korchnoi vs Miles, 1976
Granny O Doul: One wonders if either player ever knew they had contested a Dlugy variation.
   Oct-14-19 Lombardy vs N Spiridonov, 1964 (replies)
Granny O Doul: Without having been there, I'm going to speculate that it didn't take the Catholic priest Bill more than a second or two to spot the mate.
   Oct-13-19 R Kempinski vs Epishin, 2001
Granny O Doul: My board display at the end reads "Three time repetition claimable, White to move Last: 179...Nc8". Must be rare to have "three time (sic) repetition" AND stalemate at the same time.
   Oct-13-19 Fine vs Stahlberg, 1937
Granny O Doul: It's a pretty weird move to call a "thrust", however bad or good. You could just as well call it a "sortie" or a "perambulation".
   Oct-12-19 Fischer vs C Kalme, 1958 (replies)
Granny O Doul: I didn't know Kalme, but the people I know who did called him "KAHL-me". Whether that'd be approved in the old country, I don't know.
   Oct-08-19 Ribli vs Ulf Andersson, 1978
Granny O Doul: Seems that Ribli followed Botvinnik's advice by sealing at the first opportunity. If only he'd told him which move.
   Oct-06-19 Tarjan vs R Henley, 1978 (replies)
Granny O Doul: One gets the feeling White missed 23...Bxg2.
   Oct-03-19 A Schliemann vs Beger, 1866
Granny O Doul: Some of the greatest players have stated for the record that passed pawns must be pushed.
   Sep-29-19 M Fierro vs L Maria, 1994
Granny O Doul: Royal fork aside, I wonder why she didn't prefer 13...h6.
