   Dec-10-19 W Napier vs Teichmann, 1904 (replies)
Granny O Doul: Ok, in touting the almost-as-goodness of 36...Ne2+, I missed that White can play 37. Kf3 (not walking into the discovery). Still, after ...Ng1+, White will soon lose his Q or be mated (38. Kg3 f4+).
   Dec-10-19 K Treybal vs J Engel, 1932 (replies)
Granny O Doul: 33. Ne7 looks like one of those classic "cutting Black's position into two" moves.
   Dec-08-19 Short vs D Cummings, 1977
Granny O Doul: I always thought David Niven's comment about the Oscars streaker showing his shortcomings was one of the most overrated witticisms. And that the Rob Lowe duet with Snow White was perhaps mildly dumb but certainly not among the worst things ever.
   Dec-05-19 Reti vs L Asztalos, 1913
Granny O Doul: I'd have expected ...cxd4 at move fifteen with the idea of answering 16.cxd4 with ...Nb4.
   Dec-05-19 S Gordon vs A Hoffmann, 1999
Granny O Doul: I doubt this game is correctly assigned. Granted that no one is born a grandmaster, it would be very bad luck for this to be the only game to have come down to us from Gordon's early years.
   Dec-02-19 E J Diemer vs J Brass, 1983
Granny O Doul: On 9...exf5, 10.Nxf7 forks Q and R and White's knight isn't getting trapped on h8.
   Nov-27-19 W Adams vs Rossolimo, 1950 (replies)
Granny O Doul: Ok, here's one: Black made the right choice as to what to promote his pawn to.
   Nov-26-19 Prins vs E Paoli, 1949 (replies)
Granny O Doul: Give yourself credit if you didn't decide it must actually be Black to move, and tried ...d5 followed by further pawn sacrifices that Black is in no position to follow up.
   Nov-26-19 Larsen vs Unzicker, 1968
Granny O Doul: 16. d5 would be enough to dissuade me from 15...Bxh4, though my faith in the computer is fervent and abiding.
   Nov-26-19 N Padevsky vs Karpov, 1972 (replies)
Granny O Doul: Certainly White was in no trouble at move 30, let alone lost.
