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:

Penguincw: Hehe. I correctly predicted the puzzle. :) Just kidding, I saw it on <cg>'s Facebook. :)

Penguincw: Obviously, I was exaggerating (like usual), but you know what I mean. Also, I don't think it would matter if the closing times changed. It's only changed for what's necessary. :)
 
   Oct-19-14 FIDE Grand Prix Tashkent (2014) (replies)
 
Penguincw: Well enjoy it while you can, because the next one isn't until February (also the same day the Zurich Chess Challenge will start). I do agree with the close spacing though. It should be spread out. I heard that Giri just finished his match against Shirov, and now has to compete ...
 
   Oct-19-14 Bundesliga (2014/15) (replies)
 
Penguincw: Here's one site relating to this tournament: http://statistik.godesbergersk.de/s... .

Penguincw: Now would probably be a good time to open up a page for the Tashkent Grand Prix. The opening ceremony will be tomorrow, while I believe Round 1 starts at 5am eastern on Tuesday. :) http://tashkent2014.fide.com/en/mai...
 
   Oct-19-14 Lu Shanglei (replies)
 
Penguincw: Congratz to Lu Shanglei for winning the World Junior Championship (2014) with a score of 10/13 (+7,-0,=6), half a point ahead of Fedoseev, Duda and compatriot Wei Yi. This tournament has gained him not only a whopping 33.2 rating points to a career high 2566, but I believe he ...

Penguincw: 2 months after the event, and the bills are still being paid: http://www.newsinenglish.no/2014/10...
 
   Oct-18-14 Carlsen-Anand World Championship (2014) (replies)
 
Penguincw: < Kinghunt: <Eric Farley: The site www.chess.co.uk claims the match was cancelled by Fide's president, who will use a wild card to select Carlsen's challenger.> That was an April Fools joke. > That's not the only April Fool's joke involving the match. :) ...
 
   Oct-18-14 Baadur Jobava
 
Penguincw: Congratz to Jobava for beating Timman in a 6 game match 4 1/2-1 1/2. He lead 2 1/2-1 1/2 after 4 games, but won 2 in a row to win by that score. He also gained 5.1 rating points.
 
   Oct-18-14 Anish Giri (replies)
 
Penguincw: Congratz to Giri for winning a 6 game match against Shirov 4 1/2-1 1/2. He won the first 2 games, and clinched the match in 5 games. However, he also won the last game, even though it wasn't necessary. Since he won it, he has gained enough rating points to rise to World #7 on the ...
