   Nov-25-20 C Blocker vs G Garcia, 1979
Granny O Doul: Some issues with the score, too. I'd suggest 26. Rb4 Re1+ 27. Kh2 Rd1 as a more likely finish.
   Nov-23-20 Stein vs A Matanovic, 1965
Granny O Doul: Borgov-Harmon; my mistake (I've watched that episode now). But just as resignable for Black as Stein-Matanovic.
   Nov-22-20 Nezhmetdinov vs Tal, 1959
Granny O Doul: White might have tried the crazy 10. Ndb5!? ab 11. Nxb5 Qa5+ 12. Bd2 Bb4 13. Bxb4! Nxb4 14. 0-0, planning b4 and Qd6 after the knight retreats.
   Nov-22-20 Burn vs Halprin, 1898 (replies)
Granny O Doul: Yes, the pun is simple and apposite. Not every pun needs be a knee-slapper. Sometimes a good stern talking-to is sufficient.
   Nov-22-20 Hartston vs Ulf Andersson, 1975
Granny O Doul: In every game or sport you have your heartbreakers, but are any more heartbreaking than the chess variety? If we measure White's suffering from the end of the first control, and assume 20/1 after that (I doubt it was any faster; world championship control would be 16/1), then ...
   Nov-21-20 K Spraggett vs Eljanov, 2004
Granny O Doul: Odd game. I looked up the time control; 40/120, 20/60, then g/15 with 30 second increment. Considering the number of (not too difficult) wins White missed between 38 and 48, I'd have guessed Spraggett was unsure what move they were up to and that Black was blitzing along with ...
   Nov-20-20 Chigorin vs Pillsbury, 1903 (replies)
Granny O Doul: ...unless, as suggested above, Black actually played 32...Re4.
   Nov-19-20 Green Ponds Chess Club vs Launceston Chess Club, 1848 (replies)
Granny O Doul: 22. Bh3 is much more reasonable, but it doesn't seem it can have happened, given the exchange on b7 one move later. Bizarrely, I had a dream just last night where Black (my opponent) played the same first four moves as Black in this game. This was not even the most surreal ...
   Nov-18-20 Bareev vs Kupreichik, 1990 (replies)
Granny O Doul: <Stockfish is occasionally wrong in evaluations, but not (in my experience) in recognising checkmate.> They sure have come a long way. I remember back in the 70s the computer would often play on even after its king was taken.
   Nov-16-20 Cochrane vs Mohishunder, 1851
Granny O Doul: Let there be no Mohisunder standing here.
