   Dec-02-22 Gurgenidze vs R Bellin, 1977 (replies)
Granny O Doul: @Brenin: Hmm, I believe you're right.
   Dec-01-22 D J Young vs P Lalic, 2022
Granny O Doul: I do not know who was previously identified as the White player here, but whoever he is, I'm sure he is grateful for the quick correction. So, good work, guys.
   Nov-30-22 E J Gausel vs Hodgson, 1994
Granny O Doul: I heard about this 5. Ng5 move (and on ...h6, 6.e4) around 1990, and I think it was credited to Karl Burger. It highlights the shady side of the Shirazi-Indian. In a playoff rapidish game to decide the Manhattan Chess Club championship one year, Vitaly Zaltsman played the move
   Nov-13-22 Anatoly Karpov (replies)
Granny O Doul: Church's sponsored a number of things; for instance, a Larry Christiansen sumul tour in the late 70's, and they were the original sponsor of the USCF's grand prix in 1980, I think it was. Not sponsoring individual events, but paying prizes to the top ten or whatever number of ...
   Nov-06-22 O Chajes vs Marshall, 1918 (replies)
Granny O Doul: I don't know how much scrutiny the pun can stand, but I did laugh.
   Nov-05-22 Kavalek vs Benko, 1971
Granny O Doul: Maybe, or perhaps Black actually played 17...Kf8 (even for a prearranged draw, 18...e5?! seems extremely careless).
   Nov-03-22 B Amos vs Matulovic, 1970 (replies)
Granny O Doul: Black didn't wait for White to show him 69. b7. That's respect.
   Oct-29-22 Korchnoi vs Polgar, 1993
Granny O Doul: It's already over by that point. On 68...Kh8 White forces the queens off with Qe8+ and Qe7+.
   Oct-25-22 Bruce Alberston
Granny O Doul: I saw a copy of Albertson's "Savage Chess Openings Traps" (published 2017, printed 2018) at the library, and the cover, back cover, copyright page, all read as if the author were still alive. Perhaps they don't know?
   Oct-23-22 A Saidy vs Karpov, 1972
Granny O Doul: Karpov reports that Korchnoi gave him an angry glare after the same 2...b5 move; I wonder how Saidy reacted
