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:

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: First and foremost, welcome to <cg> <Gato>! < Member since Jan-02-12 > Okay, you've been on for some time, but this is the first time you've opened your forum. :) Anyway, if you don't mind, I'll give a crack at your puzzle. The way I see it, 1.Rxb6+ cxb6 2.Qxb6+ ...
   Oct-30-14 A Rodriguez Vila vs G Kanefsck, 2007 (replies)
Penguincw: I got 30.Qb4 and 30...Qd7, but 31.Qf8 I might've gotten if I saw the board after move 30.
   Oct-29-14 Caruana vs Kasimdzhanov, 2014
Penguincw: 20...Rc8 21.Nc6 Rxc7 22.Ne7+ Kf8 23.Rxc7 Kxe7 24.e4 Be5 25.Rxd7+ Kxd7 26.exd5. Well that was an interesting way to exchange a rook and 2 minor pieces. < 8th round Caruana draw vs Rustam K. Caruana still has chances to win this tourney if he plays as in the recent Sinquefield ...
   Oct-29-14 Nakamura vs Radjabov, 2014
Penguincw: The novelty here was 16...Rac8.
   Oct-29-14 Mamedyarov vs Karjakin, 2014 (replies)
Penguincw: Wow! What a game! Karjakin gives up a rook for 2 minor pieces (22...bxc3) and then Mamedyarov gives the exchange with 31.Rxf6. However, black gives back the extra piece with 35...Nf4 to impede the white attack! This game reminds me of Christmas, where people keeping giving each ...
   Oct-29-14 D Andreikin vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2014 (replies)
Penguincw: How's about 21...0-0 to prevent repetition. Pretty disappointing to see this game end prematurely, although I did think 12.Bxc4 was an interesting move. White is up a pawn, so why not try to convert it? Andreikin might've been in the lead.
   Oct-29-14 T Schmehl vs A Simonov, 2004 (replies)
Penguincw: For some reason, today's puzzle was easier than yesterday. I got 15.Bxh7+ Kxh7 16.Ng5+ Kg8 16.Qh5, and kinda stopped calculating from there.
   Oct-28-14 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Jobava, 2014 (replies)
Penguincw: 14...Bc2! and it's a speculative sacrifice by Jobava, although MVL gave it back after 36.Nxd5+. I would have liked to see the game play on though. Black is ahead 3 pawns for a bishop, although with rooks on, I guess it's hard to make progress.
   Oct-28-14 Jakovenko vs D Andreikin, 2014
Penguincw: In this battle of the Dmitry's, although <cg> doesn't mention it, this game was actually following Onischuk vs Jakovenko, 2013 up to 19.Qc2 (just different move order).
   Oct-28-14 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Kasimdzhanov, 2014
Penguincw: And MVL wins the battle of guys with long last names (or isn't that MVL vs. Nepo). Also, their current history suggests MVL <might> beat Kasim in 2019 with white in 26 moves with a QGD. ;)
