Apr-03-18  Granny O Doul: The score seems to break off before the end, I'm afraid.

Not sure what "Banker's" here is meant to mean, but this game (and I suppose the other two so attributed) was played during the K-K match in New York City in 1990, as a bit of entertainment on one of the days where a timeout was called after all the tickets were sold (ok, hardly all, but some). Not sure what was at stake for the players, but I am guessing less than in their earlier game in the same line at the 1985 New York Open. Alburt improves here with 11...Rg8.

Apr-14-21  Granny O Doul: Correcting myself: Alburt had already varied from their '85 game with 8...Qd7, instead of ...Qe7. If 11...Rg8 were the improvement, that would suggest he had castled the first time around but of course that was hardly likely.
