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

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?
   Jul-31-18 Averbakh vs Kotov, 1953 (replies)
JohnBoy: I don’t see how snagging the d5 pawn, mid combo, helps black. It just seems to add options for white.
   Jun-29-18 Marshall vs H Rogosin, 1940 (replies)
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 “sac”, seeing immediately that black cannot swap Qs. Then reasoning out the game line ...
   Jun-22-18 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2018 (replies)
JohnBoy: I love the games between these two. This as GotD sent me looking back at their 2007 match. None of this gets old.
   Jun-05-18 D Perez vs J Jackova, 2008 (replies)
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.
   Jun-04-18 J Xiong vs A Rodriguez Vila, 2018
JohnBoy: Why is this called at King's Indian here, but one round earlier the same position after 11.5 moves is called a Robatsch? S Shankland vs R Terry, 2018
   May-31-18 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
JohnBoy: The prolonged sequence of threats/counter-threats is reminiscent of several Lasker-Schlechter games, justifying <perf>’s position that Lasker is the right model for MC.
   May-26-18 Carlsen vs Jakovenko, 2016
JohnBoy: Beautiful game. But MC is being written of as a god here. I imagine that with 29.Rc2 Magnus saw that the worst that could happen is a perp, and black had plenty of ways to slip up. Do any of you really think he saw the king scamper?
   May-16-18 L Bruzon Batista vs D Anton Guijarro, 2018
JohnBoy: It's amazing how difficult white's position is after 18...c5. The loss of two pieces for a rook almost seems like the best of several unpalatable options.
