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

   Nov-15-19 Chandler vs M Gurevich, 1987 (replies)
JohnBoy: I like the exchange here between <TheaN> and <patzer2>. In OTB days I rarely played the French, and absolutely did not understand how the black side worked (i.e. never sufficiently studied Botvinnik) and paid for it. Thanks!
   Nov-08-19 Duras vs A E Post, 1904 (replies)
JohnBoy: Also, <piltdown>, several postal workers lost their @#$%. Hardly “prone to do”.
   Nov-02-19 K Muchnik vs N Bakulin, 1967 (replies)
JohnBoy: So then what was the point of 13...b6?
   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 doesn’t.
   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 black’s 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.
