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

JohnBoy: Why does his bio say that he’s a qualified mathematician? I checked https://www.genealogy.math.ndsu.nod... and nada. My contention is that the term gets thrown around by ignoranti.

JohnBoy: Yeah� the move is 19�Re2

JohnBoy: Brilliant title! I'm curious - why is 12...Qc7 considered (local engine) better than ...h6 to make the knight run? Stuff like this always gets me. I was looking at stuff like 12...h6 13.Bd7 hg5 14.Be6+ Kh8 15.Ng5. But this has about 10^6 holes.

JohnBoy: <offramp> - white overlooked 39.Bxd4 too, winning an X outright. These GMs suck! ;-)

JohnBoy: About 15y ago I executed a sandwich mate a la <Scarlett> in a blitz game at Yahoo. Black K on f6 and all. It was fun and delightful, but there ain't a chance in hell that I could reconstruct the game. In my case it was almost certainly more serendipity in a blunderfest than ...
