♔ MY PROFILE ♔

I'd like to thank the user who gave me a year of premium services from Feb/14/2012-Feb/14/2013 and the user who gave me 3 years of premium services from Dec/26/2015-Dec/26/2018. :)

★★★ BIOGRAPHY ★★★

I prefer not to reveal too much about myself, but have the following words to say:

I'm a Canadian. I picked up chess in 2009, and joined this site just over a year later.

Outside of chess, I also like to watch sports (who doesn't), and even play sports (even though I'm not great at it). Baseball is by far my favourite sport.

★★★ GAME COLLECTIONS ★★★

Penguincw's Game Collections

To view all my collections, see here: Game Collection: 0: Table of Contents.

★★★ 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 won't always be open, I decided to use one of my game collections for that purpose:

Game Collection: Chess Puzzles

Here's a sample:

White to move, mate in three

Solution: (click on above game collection)

★★★ ACHIEVEMENTS ★★★

Here's my short list of achievements on this site (other than achievements relating to the prediction contests, which are listed further below):

966th user to open up their forum.

Became the 45th user to reach 13,000 posts (unofficial).

Only the 2nd user (honour shared with 7 other users) to win a membership from the Santa Claus draw twice.

In the ChessBookie Game, finished first in the Championship 2015 preseason with 1727 cbs, 174 cbs ahead of 2nd place. Also, in the Fall 2014 preseason, I finished in 2nd with 1418 cbs, just 40 cbs behind first at the last known update.

4th user, and 3rd overall (after <SwitchingQuylthulg> (x2), <wordfunph> and <Annie K.>) to run the ChessBookie Game.

At the 2016 Caissar Awards, I was nominated and won the "Most Helpful" award for 2015.

In Spring 2016, I became the 172nd user to qualify for the Championship Leg in the ChessBookie Game, finishing in 10th place with 4,204 cbs. (fact-checking needed)

★★★ PREDICTION CONTESTS ★★★

I like competing in the prediction contests, and so far, have won these medals (along with the rank listed):

<Golden Executive>

♔♔♔♕♕♕♕♖♖♖♖♖♖♖ (3 gold, 4 silver, 7 bronze; 23rd)

<Golden Executive>'s Games Prediction Contest: User: Golden Executive

<chessmoron>'s Moves Prediction Contest (hosted by <OhioChessFan>): User: OhioChessFan

<lostemperor>'s Final Standings Prediction Contest: User: lostemperor

Other Notable Achievements:

Only user to ever win a quadruple crown (London Chess Classic 2011) in the Moves Prediction Contest (or any contest for that matter).

Only user to ever win a Betting title crown in the Games Prediction Contest, and defend it the very next year, same tournament (Tata Steel 2014 & 2015).

First user to ever win a gold medal in each of the 3 contests from the same tournament (Tata Steel 2015).

The 4th user to have won at least 3 golds in 3 different contests (after <chessmoron>, <lostemperor> and <SwitchingQuylthulg>). Members of this club are unofficially considered to be "grandmasters" of the prediction contests.

For the 7th consecutive year (2011-2017), I have won at least one gold medal in one of the contests. I am one of just 6 active users to have done so, the others being <chessmoron>, <cromat>, <lostemperor>, <SwitchingQuylthulg> and <WinKing>.

★★★ NOTABLE POSTS ★★★

I've made over 13,000 posts, but not all posts are created equally. In fact, most of them don't have too much value, but here are some of my best posts:

Probably my most "viral" post to date (introducing the now defunct Chessgames Playing Zone The Kibitzer's Café

Probably the first <on the internet> to notice the Original Six sweep the Tampa Bay Lightning were going through during the Stanley Cup playoffs, 2015: Mating Net chessforum.

More posts will be added as time progresses.

Here are some of my favourite posts by <other users> around the site (no reason given to some):

Penguincw: 20...d6 was not a good move. Better is 20...Be7 to prevent the queen from penetrating. If 25.Qxd8, then 25...Rxe1+ 26.Kg2 Bxd8, discovered check picking up the queen, 0-1. 25...Bxe7 looks better. I think MVL has better chances down a pawn in an OCB ending.

  Penguincw: And Sweden beats the U.S., as this contest is practically over. <Switch> gets the gold, I get the silver. Let's see who will get the gold, silver and bronze at the actual competition.

The U.S. had their chances, especially in the 1st period, when they were down 1-0, but on the powerplay. Sweden was a little sloppy with changing, as the U.S. managed to pull off a 3 on 0 rush, with their 3 best forwards nonetheless. But they couldn't score, and actually took a penalty too.

On a side note, surprised how empty the stadiums looked. Though cold weather (like mentioned above), and other factors (such as expensive tickets) can't help.

Jan-04-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: I forgot to mention that Sweden is looking scary, as they haven't trailed yet in the tournament. Assuming Canada advances, that's who they'll face for the gold. I'm sure Canada is glad that the Americans lost - because it's U.S.A., and also previous results weren't that great, but Sweden isn't a practice team.
Jan-05-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Canada's 53% power play percentage after the group stage is scary to put it mildly! It will probably come down a bit in the playoffs>

Tell me it's going to come down a bit. It's not really possible for a hockey team to maintain a PP% like that game after game... please?

Jan-06-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: < Switch: ... Tell me it's going to come down a bit. It's not really possible for a hockey team to maintain a PP% like that game after game... please? >

Well Canada's powerplay was shutout on the night, and even surrendered a short handed goal. But no matter, because the gold is back in Canada!

Great effort by the Swedes regardless, and nice job by the Americans to take the bronze.

As for this contest,

♔ SwitchingQuylthulg, 6
♕ Penguincw, 5

(hmm, identical standings and scores as the IIHF Championship last May)

HOF Standings:

♔♔♔♔♕ <SwitchingQuylthulg>

♔♔♕♕♖ <Penguincw>

<Mating Net>

(assuming the World Cup of Hockey 2016 doesn't count, but if it does, add a gold for <SwitchingQuylthulg> and I)

Thanks all for playing, and see you next time, which will likely be ... the Olympics next month.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: <(hmm, identical standings and scores as the IIHF Championship last May)>

Where I guaranteed the gold when Sweden won their semi (which you had picked USA to win) and thereby qualified to play Canada in the final... :)

Congratulations to Canada! You scored the most goals of any team, had the best power play of any team, the best penalty killing of any team and the best save percentage of any team... and even the best attendance of any team, better than home team USA.

  Penguincw: And here are the unofficial IIHF Rankings for the Juniors:

1) CAN 2890
2) USA 2845
3) SWE 2810
4) RUS 2770
5) FIN 2735
6) CZE 2670
7) SVK 2560
8) DEN 2505
9) SUI 2485
10) BEL 2330
11) LAT 2285
12) GER 2240
13) KAZ 2205

BEL gets demoted, while KAZ will join Division A next year (2019).

Here's last year's standings: Penguincw chessforum (kibitz #892).

CAN takes over the top spot for 3rd, USA stays put. SWE rises to 3rd, RUS falls to 4th. Places 5-11 all stay put.

Still sucks not to have our NHL players, but I got crucified (in real life) last time I didn't root for the Canadians, and they won it all. So even though they are depleted, Go Canada Go!

I'm going with the 4-time defending champions, the Canadian ladies, picking up the gold.

Feb-25-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Well the American women do indeed take gold from Canada. Congrats to them.

As for the men's tournament, wow. Canada merely takes the bronze. It sucks, but hey, there were no NHL players, and still proud they were able to get a medal. It isn't easy. Nice to see Canada's depth.

And as for our tournament, since <Mating Net> did not enter predictions for the "playoffs" round, I guess it'll be just be quarterfinals and beyond (FTR, I scored 2 points in that first round).

Results:

Quarters: CZE, OAR, CAN, GER

Semis: OAR, GER

Finals: OAR (GER gets bronze)

And as such,

♔ Mating Net, 4
♔ Penguincw, 4

(out of a possible 8)

Ah finally I get a gold. The HOF standings are
