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

Here are some of my favourite posts around the site (no reason given to some):

Probably my most useful post to date: Kibitzer's Café

YouRang describes his Hall of Fame (which I am in): YouRang chessforum

A post good enough to make the Memorable Quotes Forum (not sure how though): OhioChessFan chessforum

   Dec-22-14 Nutcracker Match of the Generations (2014) (replies)
 
Penguincw: Shirov is playing well here. Assuming he's facing Fedoseev next, if he beats him, Shirov will be at 2699.9, which is rounded to 2700.
 
   Dec-22-14 Sliwa vs A Beni, 1957
 
Penguincw: Similar puns have been used, but not these exact words. Example: Topalov vs Anand, 2010 . If only I knew what this pun means (I'll google it).
 
   Dec-22-14 D Dubov vs Morozevich, 2014 (replies)
 
Penguincw: Wow. Very creative drawing sequence starting with 12.Nxe6, but is it possible to avoid the perpetual/repetition with 16...Ka5? One last note/question: although not the most accurate move, an intense battle could arrive after 13.Nxg7+ Kf8 14.Rxd1 Kxg7. It's not the move accurate ...
 
   Dec-22-14 D Charochkina vs B Khotenashvili, 2014 (replies)
 
Penguincw: Yay Mondays! Queen sacrifice, rook check, and then take any pieces that block. I actually didn't solve the whole puzzle ( :( ) but I would've gotten it OTB.
 
   Dec-21-14 Mating Net chessforum (replies)
 
Penguincw: Grr. I came close to solving the puzzle with black to move ( Mating Net chessforum ). I got 1...Qd1+ 2.Qe1 Bg2+ 3.Kf2 Qf3+ 4.Kg1, but couldn't find the followup, until now (4...Bh3 5.Qf2 Qd1+ and mate). Maybe I should just randomly guess puzzles even if I don't know to solution, ...

Penguincw: Oh, and second question: what if there's a tie for 12th place? This is actually a realistic situation. I don't want to get into too much detail, but if both my bets win today, and <Kynas> remains inactive, there will be a tie for 12th place.

Penguincw: Darn it! I've been working on Clue #51 for over an hour, and came up empty. :( I got Mantle, but I thought the second clue was RBI... Even if I got NAMOORE, I'd probably look for a player named Namoore instead of N A Moore. :P Congrats <Sastre>. <But hold on> There ...
 
   Dec-21-14 S Atalik vs Sax, 1997 (replies)
 
Penguincw: I got the fairly obvious 20.Nxf7+ Rxf7 21.Bxe6, but that's it.
 
   Dec-20-14 Kramnik vs Sadler, 2014 (replies)
 
Penguincw: An interesting possibility could've arrived if Sadler played 13...Nxg3 (desperado) 14.hxg3 Qxa1. After moves such as 15.Qe4+ Ne7 16.Rd1 Qf6, black can castle, and is up the full exchange, but white is more active.
 
   Dec-20-14 S Del Rio Angelis vs B Olape, 2004 (replies)
 
Penguincw: As soon as I saw this position, the game Fischer vs Myagmarsuren, 1967 came in to mind (kinda), but after 24.Qxh7+ Kxh7 25.Rh5+, 25...Bh6 and white is doomed.
