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

JohnBoy: What, <Dion>, is a st-st-st-studer?
   Oct-11-21 Nunn vs Bronstein, 1975 (replies)
JohnBoy: Beautiful game! And it needs to be forever paired w J Kaplan vs Bronstein, 1975 , from the same tournament. The Sorcerer's Apprentice sure gave the youngsters a beating.
   Oct-09-21 T Luther vs P Tregubov, 2001 (replies)
JohnBoy: I would have probably played 34.Qh5. Thoughts?
   Oct-08-21 S Barrientos Chavarriaga vs Borges Mateos, 2004 (replies)
JohnBoy: This smells of a desperado at the end of white?s nice try w 31.Rd6, <Brenin>. I, w <wazir> missed 36.Bf3, but there really isn?t anything else B can try.

JohnBoy: Stockfish gives 15.Qe3 a ? without saying what might be better. O I already like black at this point but it sure looks like white needs to recapture the piece.

JohnBoy: I submitted, but <lock her up> is far better. Brilliant.

JohnBoy: Both this and the previous are spectacular wins. Despite the flaw that <Ulhumbrus> points out above. I'm with <savage>, <Englishman>, and <Adolfo>. Damm!

JohnBoy: Reminds me of Ba3 in the famous Botvinnik-Capablanca Nimzo.
   Jun-08-21 Konstantinopolsky vs I Rudakovsky, 1940
JohnBoy: Reminds me a bit of a game at American Open ~’76 between Strauss & Sierewan. Y was like 16 & came out of middle game down 3 connected passers to 2. But the pair was far more mobile & Y won.

JohnBoy: <offramp: <Russ09: A quick point about Fischer's 3 million payday. In 1973 the top Federal tax rate was 70% on income over 100k. So Bobby was lucky to walk away with 900k but NY had a state tax too.> And there's a $1,000 leaving town tax.> Income averaging was the rule ...
