Currently, I'm in the middle of organizing my game collections, so please excuse any incomplete collections.

Penguincw's Game Collections

To view all my game collections and learn more about them, see here: Game Collection: Table of Contents.

I'm working on a few different types:

- WCC (8 finished ones, which are from Game Collection: 1886 World Chess Championship to Game Collection: 1908 World Chess Championship, 34 rough drafts, which are Game Collection: 1910 World Chess Championship (first one) to Game Collection: 1998 FIDE World Chess Championship , along with Game Collection: 2013 World Chess Championship and Game Collection: 2014 World Chess Championship and 12 un-started ones, which are from Game Collection: 1999 FIDE World Chess Championship to Game Collection: 2012 World Chess Championship)

- Bios (only for Game Collection: Bio: Adolf Anderssen and Game Collection: Bio: Akiba Rubinstein as I got lazy)

- Castling (I'm planning to remove these collections)

- Checkmates (such as Game Collection: Checkmate: Checkmate Patterns and 2 others)

- Endgames (which are Game Collection: Endgame: Bare Kings and Game Collection: Endgame: Stalemate)

- Promotion (such as Game Collection: Promotion: Knight and 6 others)

- Other Stuff (such as Game Collection: Games with cross-check(s) and 9 others)

- Unavailable (starts from Game Collection: Unavailable Collection #1 on Penguincw's Game Collections to Penguincw's Game Collections). Please ignore these, as if I ever need new collections, I'll use these.

I don't have as much time I'd like, so a lot of them are un-finished/incomplete.

Here are some chess puzzles I composed. Since my forum has closed, a lot of the links are "dead". So, I decided to use one of the unavailable collections for that purpose:

Penguincw: R.I.P. Super GM Vugar Gashimov.
   Jul-24-14 H Richards vs S Williams, 2003 (replies)
Penguincw: Wow. I didn't even consider 1.Bc8. :|
   Jul-23-14 Jens Ove Fries Nielsen
Penguincw: Today, with black, Nielsen upset Jan Timman (rated 212 points higher) with the black pieces! With that, he is now 4/4, one of 7 players to remain 4/4. Timman vs J O Fries Nielsen, 2014 By my unofficial calculation, he's gained 12.3 rating points so far. Early bid for 3rd GM ...

   Jul-23-14 J D Tisdall vs Judit Polgar, 1988 (replies)
Penguincw: Hmm. I struggled forever on this puzzle, until I saw it was black to move, which I got. If 34.Kb1, 34...Rh1+ wins the queen (34...Qxe4 is probably good too).
