A New Zealander who has recently returned to Tauranga after a 12-year working vacation in various parts of the world.

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.

A have an Euwe number of three, an Alekhine number of four and a Fischer number of four.

   Oct-15-19 Alekhine vs Tylor, 1937 (replies)
 
newzild: Straightforward stuff: 43.Rg8+ Kxg8 44.Nxf6+ Kf8 45. Nxh5 Ke7 46. Nf4 dxc4 47. Kg2 b5 48. Kf3 b4 49. Ke4 and the King arrives in time to deal with Black's q-side pawns.
 
   Oct-14-19 Lombardy vs N Spiridonov, 1964 (replies)
 
newzild: Simple and pretty.
 
   Sep-24-19 C Costello vs M Fogg, 2011 (replies)
 
newzild: An instructive technical win by White.
 
   Sep-23-19 Anand vs Van Wely, 1998 (replies)
 
newzild: After 35. Bxg6 hxg6 36. Rh2 Kf8, I saw a different mate to <agb2002>: 37. Qh8+ Ke7 38. Rh7+ Kd8 39. Qf6+ Re7 40. Qxe7# 36...Kf7 37. Qh7+ transposes. I agree with other posters who say the 'new' Monday puzzles are harder than the 'old' ones - not that I object to ...
 
   Sep-16-19 R H Steinmeyer vs Berliner, 1959 (replies)
 
newzild: <erniecohen> Yes, good point.
 
   Sep-15-19 Sarin Nihal vs E Safarli, 2019 (replies)
 
newzild: Pun is back-to-front because it's actually Nihal who wins. Great combo at the end, though!
 
   Sep-13-19 R L Perry vs Alphaeus Wei Ern Ang, 2016
 
newzild: According to a discussion elsewhere, Ang is a junior whose coach told him to always play to mate.
 
   Sep-10-19 Polugaevsky vs Gulko, 1975 (replies)
 
newzild: <jimfromprovidence> Nice. Additionally, White can play the simple 30. Rxe6 fxe6 31. Qxg6+ Kf8 32. Nf6.
 
   Aug-31-19 G Kacheishvili vs Sakaev, 2001 (replies)
 
newzild: It's clear that there must be a sacrifice on e4, but I couldn't see any lines all the way through, so clicked through the game to enjoy the ride. What a ride!
 
   Aug-30-19 Capablanca vs Kevitz, 1924 (replies)
 
newzild: Capa was right to resign. What's the point in playing on for 30 moves in a completely lost position against a player who is clearly master strength?
