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. :)


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


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:

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: Just a random question that came to my head: what if I submit a puzzle, and someone submits a better puzzle with the same answer, and that game ends up being used? Can I claim the prize upon that game?

Penguincw: How is the winner determined if there are 4 games of classical and 16 blitz? Best 10.5 out of 20??
   Nov-22-14 Samuel Sevian (replies)
Penguincw: I heard he only needs 6 more rating points! If he wins his next 2 games, he'll be a GM.

Penguincw: Isn't black winning here? After 16...Qaxf6 17.Rxf6+ Qxf6 18.Bxf6 Rxg8 19.Qxh7 Be6, black has 2 rooks and a bishop vs. a queen.
   Nov-22-14 Y Kuzubov vs Ponomariov, 2014
Penguincw: The finish: If 53...Kh7, then 54.g6+ Kh6 55.gxf7 Rxf7?? 56.Qh8+ Rh7 57.Qf6+ Kh5 58.Qh4# 1-0. Nice last round win by Kuzubov!
