Member since Oct-13-07 · Last seen Jun-27-17
A New Zealander who has been living and working in various parts of the world since 2005 (currently in Melbourne).

I have played three tournaments this century - the Waitakere Open in New Zealand in 2002 (3/5), the Seoul Spring Chess Festival 2010 (4.5/5) and the Seoul Summer Chess Festival 2010 (3.5/4). I won the two Korean tournaments.

   Jun-26-17 Fischer vs R W Moore, 1961
 
newzild: <Al2009: <newzild> You're in error, please READ BETTER. I said that Tal was 10 times superior IN TACTICS> I can read. Your statement is ridiculous because even if Tal was better at tactics, he certainly wasn't '10 times better'.
 
   Jun-24-17 Jainy Gomes vs G Soppe, 2001
 
newzild: A model game against the exchange variation.
 
   Jun-22-17 Y Hernandez vs F Salandy, 1986
 
newzild: Instead of 6. d5 I think White should play 6. dxe5, forcing the exchange on f3 and giving White light-square dominance. Note that 6...dxe5?? loses the queen to 7. Bf7+ and 6...fxe5 allows 7. Bf7+ Kxf7 8. Ng5+ followed by 9. Qxg4, with a strong attack.
 
   Jun-21-17 Speelman vs Kudrin, 1983 (replies)
 
newzild: 13...hg is a bad practical choice because it offers White the chance to play for two results, the perpetual check being available for some time.
 
   Jun-18-17 Zsofia Polgar vs A Chernin, 1989 (replies)
 
newzild: This was the first week in years that I attempted all seven puzzles. I managed to solve all seven, but Saturday and Sunday were a bit easier than usual, I think. 19. Nd5 does jump out as a candidate move because the queen and Bb2 are both attacking g7, and it's natural to look at ...
 
   Jun-15-17 Larsen vs Kavalek, 1970 (replies)
 
newzild: Not so easy because ... the solution is too obvious! I found 25. Ncd5 only after rejecting 25. Qxg7+ and 25. Rxd6.
 
   Jun-08-17 J G Nicholson vs H Noordhoek, 2007 (replies)
 
newzild: <al wazir> At least you're honest.
 
   Jun-04-17 Shirov vs Lautier, 1995 (replies)
 
newzild: Fire on the board!
 
   May-30-17 P Makoli vs F Doettling, 2007 (replies)
 
newzild: <morfishine> Unfortunately 36...Rxc1 only draws after 37. Qxf6+.
 
   May-28-17 Kupreichik vs J Grigorov, 1986 (replies)
 
newzild: <Willber G> Oh, didn't see that. I was going to suggest John Nunn's "Complete Pirc" but thought it was too old. Maybe it wasn't back then?
