JohnBoy: The Budapest is loaded with these traps. And, <fred>, the kid was 10.

JohnBoy: Russ went from 1600 to 2300 in about six months ~1977. And ever the nicest guy. I only played him once. Drawn but tricky endgame I managed to screw up and lost.

JohnBoy: Here is what got me stuck: 23.Rxh6 Qxh6 24.Nf6+ Qxf6 25.Bxf6 gf6 & how does white win this? Black can break the pin on f7 w -Be6 almost certainly at the cost of another pawn, but has a lot of material to confuse the white efforts.

JohnBoy: My familiarity w the term is, like <OCF>, as a plant. I doubt that most of my Jewish colleagues and friends would take much if any offense one way or another. Amusing is that his comes from the same <FSR> who criticized me for "Cordoned Negro" where black (Fressinet) got

JohnBoy: Nice game, <Fred>. Typical NN play, but you were more than up to the task. Anyone would be proud to have this in their log book.

   May-02-22 Tal vs B Dudley, 1964 (replies)
JohnBoy: As lauded by <AylerKupp> & <perf>, both this and Tal vs J Miller, 1988 are astounding. Whooping out stuff like this in a simul melts my hard drive. I run out of exclamations.

JohnBoy: <Teyss, Socrates> - 21…Ke8 22.a5 looks pretty convincing.

JohnBoy: Thanks, <Brenin>. Something miss the obvious.
