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

JohnBoy: Moves like 20...Bxd6 show me that naysayers wrt Carlsen’s tactical prowess are way off base. No doubt he saw the possibility of 25...Rb1. He manages to hide his tactical knife just a bit better than anyone else. And he knows well when to pull it out.

JohnBoy: <GlassCow: ... 26. Qxg6 is seen as the strongest move> - in what line? This seems a total non-sequitur.
   Sep-24-18 Seirawan vs Miles, 1979 (replies)
JohnBoy: <offramp > - I think it’s Nottinghamorrhoid.
   Sep-23-18 Panov vs Bondarevsky, 1937 (replies)
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.
   Sep-06-18 J Xiong vs Shabalov, 2017 (replies)
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?
   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.
   Jun-29-18 F Olafsson vs Unzicker, 1970 (replies)
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 ...
