♔ 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>

<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: Now do I look for mate? I got the bishop sac, but not much more. Certainly did not get any variations or understood what to play if black deviates.

Penguincw: Once again, don't look for mate. I didn't get the Tuesday puzzle, so it must be a harder than average week. Material was balanced in the initial position, and now white is up a pawn, but black has the bishop pair. White should be able to pick up a couple more pawns. White ...

  Penguincw: Hi <Switch>. Thanks for your concern. No one close to me is affected by that incident yesterday, so that's a good sign.
Apr-25-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Happy World Penguin Day all.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: U18 World Champions: Finland :) Hopefully we can keep this up at the men's tournament.

The promising thing here was that we were unusually good on penalty killing. We had a very respectable 86% tournament penalty killing percentage, and totally aced it in the gold medal game (including scoring the game-winner short-handed). Usually you can rely on any team in Finnish uniforms to suck on penalty killing, hopefully that's starting to change.

It was also refreshing to see USA miss an excellent opportunity to equalize with 1 second left in the game; we've had important games slip away in the last moments way too often. The hardest thing in ice hockey is winning a won game.

Apr-30-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Ah, that tournament. I missed it in its entirety, probably because of the NHL playoffs.

But hey, the regular IIHF Championship is coming up very soon.

May-16-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Well the playoffs start soon, so better get in my predictions for the 2018 IIHF Championship.

QF:

<SWE> - LAT
<USA> - CZE
<RUS> - CAN
<FIN> - SUI

SF:

<SWE> - USA
RUS - <FIN>

F/BMG:

<SWE> - FIN (G)

RUS - <USA> (3rd)

For once Russia doesn't have Ovechkin to use, because he's actually still in the playoffs. Also, poor South Korea.

Same rules as always. Tournament starts May/17 16:15 local time/17:15 Finland/10:15 am Eastern/7:15 am Pacific.

<SwitchingQuylthulg> <Mating Net> <WannaBe> Anyone?

F/BMG:

<SWE> - CAN (Gold)

<FIN> - USA (Bronze)

  Penguincw: Games have started a while ago.

So it’s just me and <Switch> again. I could advertise this more, but I don't know.

I see our predictions this time mostly come down to RUS-CAN, but there’s more than that too.

  WannaBe: Been following this tournament out of the corner of my eye (more interested in Stanley Cup...)

And since I'm not really sure which (NHL) players are playing for which countries, especially the 'big' ones, e.g. FIN, SWE, NOR, CAN, USA and who is still playing for the Cup, I did not offer any predictions.

But I do see, that US beat CZE, and will face SWE/LAT winner, right now, 1-0 SWE.

Canada won, and will play winner of FIN/SUI, current score 1-0 FIN.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: < WannaBe: Been following this tournament out of the corner of my eye (more interested in Stanley Cup...) >

Same, but hey, that hasn't stopped me. It's all for fun. Hockey can be unpredictable, just like the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

< And since I'm not really sure which (NHL) players are playing for which countries, especially the 'big' ones, e.g. FIN, SWE, NOR, CAN, USA and who is still playing for the Cup, I did not offer any predictions. >

Wikipedia has the rosters posted for each team. Though it'll take a bit of research to figure out who's NHL, and who recently joined after their team was eliminated from the playoffs.

And well, I really need to look up what happens when <Switch> and I put faith on our own countries.

Through the QF, the current standings are

SwitchingQuylthulg, 3
Penguincw, 2

Next update will be after it's all done, on May/20. <Switch> has actually already clinched yet another gold, but I can still tie him only if the Americans beat the Canadians in the bronze medal game.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Geez US got killed!!
May-19-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Desperate times calls for desperate measures. Is that why with 9 minutes to go the US pulled the goalie, down by 4?

What's the general rule of thumb? Minutes left when you pull your goalie should equal number of goals you're down plus one (maybe)?

May-19-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <Penguincw> Well, it's an 'elimination' game, so I'd agree with the decision, in one NHL playoff game, (not even a real elimination game), but with team down 4-1 with 5 min left, goalie got pulled.

I mean, imagine, if you are the road team, game 1 of 7 series; and you are already down 5-1 10 min left in the 3rd period, why not? Or even if you are the home team.

So... Team's losing already, number of goals vs time left is debatable, obviously you wouldn't do it when puck is in your zone, or being short-handed. But if should get lucky and have Power Play...

Coach's call, I guess.

May-20-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: The only hard-and-fast rule about pulling the goalie I've learned is that when either side pulls the goalie, the team that isn't Finland will score.

  Penguincw: < Penguincw: ... <Switch> has actually already clinched yet another gold, but I can still tie him only if the Americans beat the Canadians in the bronze medal game. >

And it's a miracle.

Congrats to Sweden for not losing a single game, Switzerland for the surprise silver and the Americans for the bronze.

♔♔♔♔♔♔♕ <SwitchingQuylthulg>

♔♔♔♔♕♕♖ <Penguincw>

(note I counted the World Cup 2016 gold medals)

Thanks all for joining, and hope to see you next time, which will be probably be the IIHF Junior Championship at the end of the calendar year. See you then!

Oh, and one last note. Regarding <Switch> and my "loyalty" to our own countries.

Looking it up, (this is all for the <first game> that our countries played in the playoff/knockout stage, which includes relegation games):

I have predicted Canada to win 6 times, and they did so each of the previous 5 times. I have predicted Canada to lose just once, and they did (this tournament). (I really should've done my research before making predictions)

<Switch> has predicted Finland to win 3 times, and he was correct 2 times. He has predicted Finland to lose twice, and they've done it, once. So overall he's 3/5, and his country is 3-2.

  WannaBe: TB losing at home (game 7) 3-0 with about 11 minutes left in the game. I'd say pull the goalie when the situation is right...
