K MY PROFILE K

★★★ ANNOUNCEMENTS ★★★

I have decided to reorganize my profile, but it could take some time.

I am now keeping track of the Gold Medal Leaders in the Moves Prediction Contest. Please see User: Gold Medal Leaders.

I'd like to thank the user who gave me a year of premium services from 02/14/12-02/14/13. :)

★★★ KIBITZING ★★★

I used to keep track of all the milestones, but there were too many, and some are inaccurate. This section will be updated soon.

Milestone prediction dates:

9,000th kibitz: Monday, March 25, 2015

10,000th kibitz: Wednesday, September 6, 2015

★★★ GAME COLLECTIONS ★★★

Penguincw's Game Collections

I was about to finish my game collections, but decided that I need a long break from them. To view all my game collections and learn more about them, see here: Game Collection: Table of Contents.

★★★ CHESSFORUM ★★★

Once again, if anyone's interested in the stats or milestones, view the archived link.

★★★ CHESS PUZZLES ★★★

Here are some chess puzzles I composed. I'm not a very strong composer, but they should be fun to solve nevertheless. However, since my forum has closed, a lot of the links are "dead". So, I decided to use one of my game collections for that purpose:

Here's a sample:

White to move, mate in three

Penguincw: Positions from your own games are always easier to solve... Anyway, the move 1.h7+ seems to be win. If 1...Kh8, then 2.Qxf8+ Kxh7 3.Rh2+ and it's lights out. If 1... Kxh7, then 2.Qxf8 and black is behind the double exchange for a pawn. Lastly, if 1...Kg7, then 2.Qxf8+ Kxf8 (what ...

Penguincw: 28...Qxe1+ 29.Bxe1 Rxe1+ 30.Bf1 Ra8 31.Kg2 Ra2+ 33.K (any) and that's about as far as I calculated.

Penguincw: If I were to travel to the 19th century (pre-Steinitz) and face a strong player (ex. Anderseen), in response to 1.e4, I'd probably play 1...c5 or something to try to get them offtrack. Unfortunately, this game proves otherwise... http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches...

Penguincw: Yes! I got this Thursday puzzle (probably the first time ever). 31.h5 and the threat is to mate by taking on g6. If black takes on h5, white will take back with mate. If 31...Bxg5, then simply 32.hxg6+ Bh6 33.Rxh6+ gxh6 34.Qxh6# 1-0. I didn't calculate 31...Qf5+, but I don't think

Penguincw: Darn it! I got 33.Rxg6+ Kxg6 34.Nh4+ and stopped there, not because I couldn't find the followup, but because I actually thought that was checkmate.

Penguincw: (facepalm) I should've spent more time on this puzzle, as 39.Rxg7 is not the answer.
 
   Dec-15-14 P Vavra vs V Slezka, 1994 (replies)
 
Penguincw: Yay Mondays! 29...Rxd1+ followed by 30...Qxb2# 0-1. Although white can prevent mate on b2 by using moves such as Rb3 or c3, there's only one problem: the white king is in check, and white has to do something about <that> problem.
