I have decided to reorganize my profile. If anyone wants to see it like before, view a link such as

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. :)


I used to keep track of all the milestones, but there were too many, and some are inaccurate.


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.


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


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:

I compete in prediction contests often, and so far, have gotten these medals:

KKRR (2 gold, 2 bronze; currently 33rd most successful)

KKKKKNNNNNBBBBBBBB (5 gold, 5 silver, 8 bronze; currently 10th greatest all time)

KKR (2 gold, 1 bronze; currently 15th most incredible overall performance)

KKKKKKKKKNNNNNRRRBBBBBBBB (9 gold, 5 silver, 11 bronze; currently 10th best)

   Sep-14-14 Vallejo-Pons vs Aronian, 2014
Penguincw: 14.Nxe4 was a potential knight sacrifice. If 14...fxe4, then 15.Qxe4 c6 16.Qg6+ and things could get interesting, considering how underdeveloped both sides are.

Penguincw: Say, doesn't this tournament use the 3-1-0 scoring system?
   Sep-14-14 Anand vs Ponomariov, 2014 (replies)
Penguincw: Ponomariov loses despite promoting. :| Position is everything. Black can temporarily stop promotion with 61...Qh3, but after 62.Nd6, there's no stopping it.

Penguincw: Congratz to Giri for entering the Top 10 (on the live ratings) after beating Bengt Lindberg with black today, and gaining 1.1 points. Giri currently sits at 2760.9, just a half point ahead of the idle Mamedyarov. I believe this is a career first.

   Sep-14-14 W So vs O Kanmazalp, 2004
Penguincw: 26.Rf1+! Great deflection move. If white simply goes with 26.Bxe5, then after 26...Kxe5 white is now up only a pawn (instead of a piece and pawn), and black has a centralized king, so it'll be a lot tougher to bring home the win. 26.Re1 should also do the job.
