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:

Here's a sample:

White to move, mate in three

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)

Updated through Sinquefield Cup 2014.

Penguincw: I was just wandering around the site, and whenever someone has time, it would be nice to update one of the bios. Eltaj Safarli < His 7.5/11 result in the European Individual Championships (2013) qualified him to play in the World Cup (2013), where he defeated Egyptian #1, GM ...

Penguincw: Normally I don't get Wednesday puzzles, but I got this one, so maybe it's a wee too easy.

Penguincw: < perfidious: ... If Vallejo were some other ~2700 player, would you be sneering at him in this way--not that you're anything like the player he is? > Wait, what? I wasn't sneering at him (although I do sneer a lot in real life). I was just making an observation.
   Sep-16-14 Ponomariov vs Vallejo-Pons, 2014
Penguincw: 14...Rxc3 [DIAGRAM] What a weird place to put a rook this early in the game, but considering white was threatening 14.Nxc6 earlier, I guess 13...Rc5 was kinda forced. However, 10...h5 isn't forced. 10...Qb6 would probably be better.

Penguincw: < Note, if ...Qb6, then White simply captures the Queen with Nxb6. > Oops, looks like I need to work on my en prise skills. ;)
   Sep-16-14 Fabiano Caruana
Penguincw: According to, yesterday, after a win against a 2403, Caruana gained 0.8 points to rise to 2836.8, a new career high. Unfortunately, he just lost one point today due to a draw, but beating Svidler with black isn't exactly that easiest thing to do.
   Sep-16-14 S Agdestein vs Topalov, 2014 (replies)
Penguincw: I'm not sure if Topalov really cares about ratings, but this game just cost him 7.1 points, and has dropped to #6. However, 3-6 aren't even seperated by 10, so who knows?
