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

   Oct-08-19 I Denisov vs R Skomorokhin, 2009
JohnBoy: The hard part was 39...Bd2+. I would have snagged the R in an instant in blitz.
   Sep-22-19 J K Duda vs J Xiong, 2019 (replies)
JohnBoy: Xiong is playing some very interesting chess. Right at the edge of what works and what doesnít.
   Sep-21-19 World Cup (2019) (replies)
JohnBoy: I am delighted by Xiong's fighting nature. The kid skates awfully close to the edge.
   Sep-19-19 A Giri vs J Xiong, 2019
JohnBoy: Great battle! Xiong is proving himself quite the fighter. The whole stretch from blackís 16th through about move 30 is very high energy.
   Sep-12-19 F Felecan vs F Rhine, 2019 (replies)
JohnBoy: Nice game, Fred. I saw your plan to strand the white R and enjoyed seeing it come to fruition. 25.Qf5 never occurred to me, but, once I saw your mention of it, the continuation was clear. Ouch!
   Sep-06-19 Kamsky vs Karpov, 1996
JohnBoy: <lentil>: It appears Kamsky saw that he was winning a piece in any case. He chose to do so in the fashion that left him with more solid winning chances.
   Aug-06-19 Karpov vs M Schauwecker, 1973 (replies)
JohnBoy: I was wondering why white did not just snag the X at move 43... and then I saw the finish. Damn! Having never seen this game (or maybe 45y ago), this is brilliant.
   Jul-22-19 Kotronias vs N Kalesis, 1994 (replies)
JohnBoy: Thanks, <p2>. But I was thing more that the bishop blocks the Q... kind of like half Novotny. Not that the Q is faced w two horrible choices.
   Jul-13-19 R Knaak vs Bronstein, 1979 (replies)
JohnBoy: <wazir> - After 27.Bxf6 gf6 I donít believe white has time for 28.Qxh5 as 28...Rb1+ gives black a mating attack.
   Jul-10-19 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2019
JohnBoy: Great comment <Sally>. Gracias!
