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. :)


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.


My chessforum is now open below. Feel free to post a comment.


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 won't always be open, 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:

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

♔♔♔♔♔♘♘♘♘♘♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗ (5 gold, 5 silver, 8 bronze; currently 10th greatest all time)

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

♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♘♘♘♘♘♖♖♖♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗ (9 gold, 5 silver, 11 bronze; currently 10th best)

Penguincw: Last round starts early! Round 13: So - van Wely 0-1 Wojtaszek - Giri 1-0 Carlsen - Saric 0-1 Aronian - Ding 0-1 Caruana - Vachier-Lagrave 0-1 Hou - Ivanchuk 0-1 Jobava - Radjabov 0-1
   Jan-24-15 Carlsen vs I Saric, 2015 (replies)
Penguincw: < Carlsen will be highly motivated to win and that too works in his favor. > I have a feeling that if the Wojtaszek-Giri game is drawn, and this position is equal, even though a draw would clinch sole first, he'll try to play on. It's happened before: Carlsen vs Aronian, ...

Penguincw: I'm going to it a try: the moves I'd play are 1.Rxh7+ Qxh7 2.Qxh7+ Kxh7 and from here, there are 2 variations: 3.Ng5+ Kg6 4.Nxf7 Kxf7, and black is up 2 pawns OR 3.Nxg3, and white is has a bishop and knight for a rook and 2 pawns, although Rd7 and black can gain a tempo (for ...

Penguincw: Oh <cg>, can you fix the Live Broadcast page? It's Ivan Saric that's playing, not Igor. Also, the game starts at 6 am eastern. Thanks. :)
   Jan-24-15 A Giri vs W So, 2015 (replies)
Penguincw: < Classical games: Anish Giri beat Wesley So 3 to 0, with 3 draws. > If anyone were to defeat So this tournament, it would be Giri.
   Jan-24-15 S Shankland vs E L'Ami, 2015 (replies)
Penguincw: Ooh. L'Ami started out an undefeated +2 after 5 rounds, but has since been a winless -3. At least all his losses were with black... Meanwhile, Shankland extends his run to 70+ games with just one loss (that's what I heard, don't quote me on it).

Penguincw: < patfoley: Is a 5 way tie for first still possible? I do not have the schedule at hand. > Yes, if the following results happen: So - van Wely 1-0 Wojtaszek - Giri 1/2-1/2 Carlsen - Saric 0-1 Aronian - Ding 0-1 Caruana - MVL 0-1 Hou - Ivanchuk and Jobava - Radjabov

Penguincw: With Navara drawing today, Wei Yi is guaranteed to finish in a share of first place, at least. Tomorrow, Wei Yi faces Saleh while Navara faces the other David, David Klein (both podium finishers have black). I don't think finishing in sole or shared first makes a difference, but ...
