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

   Sep-24-23 C Carls vs H Johner, 1927 (replies)
JohnBoy: Looking at the puzzle position, I couldn’t begin to guess what opening lead here.

JohnBoy: What's wrong with 11...Nf3+?
   Jul-26-23 Wei Yi vs G Jones, 2018 (replies)
JohnBoy: I’m curious if 12…f6 13.Be3 f5 would improve for black. At least it moves the bishop from a place where it somewhat cramps black, and poses an immediate threat.

JohnBoy: Very entertaining game, full of delightful surprises. Nice pick

JohnBoy: Is the 50 move rule no longer in effect?
   Mar-10-23 Epishin vs V Karpman, 1990 (replies)
JohnBoy: Like everyone, I saw 24.g6 right away. What I totally missed was how 25.Nd5 picks up an X. That was sweet.

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
