Retired from active play, was about weak master level in 1980. Confused by modern style.

JohnBoy: <offramp > - I think itís Nottinghamorrhoid.

JohnBoy: <cormier> - I presume you are looking at <Glattke>'s analysis. You have the wrong rook at e8.

JohnBoy: < rilkefan: <<Once>:If this was cooked back in 2004, why are we getting it as a puzzle again?> It's the War on Christmas in America you may have read about.> I blame Soros.

JohnBoy: <onedog>, <Yuridmi> - I too missed 21.Qxa8 Rxf4+ 22.Ke1 Qe3+ 23.Kd1 Rd4+ 24.Kc2 Rd8 25.fxe7 Bf5# as pointed out by <Glattke>. Too focused on 22...Qf2+ and missed the effect of 22...Qe3+ instead.

JohnBoy: Does anyone know if there is much of a CG team? To whom do responsibilities pass now? Is the site available for someone else to step in an manage?

JohnBoy: I donít see how snagging the d5 pawn, mid combo, helps black. It just seems to add options for white.

JohnBoy: <adnrewjsacks> mentioned above Rogosin's son Donn playing Fischer in ElLay. In mid-70s So Cal there was an old guy named Hy Rogosin who played at some opens and occasionally in Hy Rogosin. Gotta be the loser here.

JohnBoy: Very kind of CG to offer this as a Fri puzzle. There have been Tues puzzles which had more complicated options. And Fri puzzles which left me scratching my head. My immediate reaction was the X ďsacĒ, seeing immediately that black cannot swap Qs. Then reasoning out the game line ...

JohnBoy: I love the games between these two. This as GotD sent me looking back at their 2007 match. None of this gets old.

JohnBoy: <stst: Don't understand why White chose KxR to get "suicide" so quick... to make it a Tues Puzz for us??> - maybe the difference between Monday evening and Tuesday morning.
