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

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>ís 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.
   May-01-18 J Lansing vs R A Hart, 1907 (replies)
JohnBoy: Iím w <soberknight >. 9...g4 is a better try than waiting until 10...g4, as 9...Nd7 takes d7 as an escape route from the black king. The best I can find is 9...g4 10.Bf7+ Kd7 11.Rg3 fg3 12.Qg4+ Kc6 and white looks awfully good w a fun game.

JohnBoy: <CHC> - I believe <mike1> is merely objecting to <perf>ís ď16.Bd2 is winningĒ. Better... certainly. Winning... not quite.
   Apr-01-18 B Hare vs K Budge, 1958 (replies)
JohnBoy: This game strikes me as having been played in the 1870s, not the 1950s.

JohnBoy: <Petrosianic: "If you watched the games instead of just the crosstable, you might not be so bored. Unless you like chess, a chess tournament will never interest you."> I definitely watch (at 2700chess), and have played through, every game of the tournament. Over and over it ...

JohnBoy: Why canít black play 68...Bxe5?
