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.

newzild: Well, it was a blitz game. 26...Bf4+ looked quite good to me.
   Feb-14-17 Aronian vs Anand, 2013
newzild: I'm a pretty decent player and I don't understand this game. Kudos to Anand and Kramnik - it's way above my head.

newzild: I glanced at the position and saw that 31. Bg8 mates after 31...Kxg7 32. Qh7+ Kf6 33. Bc3#. Then I clicked on the game and realised I'd overlooked not only 33...Re5 but also 31. Qxh2 mate!

newzild: <HeMateMe> Fischer had a few decent games under his belt at 18. Not to mention knocking over today's hero: Fischer vs Tal, 1961

newzild: <razetime> 19...Rg7 does look like a blunder, but the most likely improvement, 19...Bd7, looks like it fails to 20. Nxe7 Bxe7 21. Rxe7 Kxe7 22. Qxd6+, etc.

newzild: Didn't get this. Saw the game continuation til the end, but couldn't see that 21...Nh7 fails to 22. Ng5 until I clicked through the game.

newzild: <plang> <49 Ba3? was a positional blunder (really a tough move to understand) allowing 49..e5 break after which Black was winning> It's a positional blunder to allow 49...e5 for the following reasons: 1) Black exchanges a weak isolated pawn for a strong member of ...

newzild: The key line is: 34...Rxh3+ 35. Kf4 (not 35. gxh3 Qh1+ followed by 36...Qe4+ and 37...Qh4#, while 35...Kg4 Re4+ 36. Kg5 Rh5 is also mate) ...and now one possibility is 35...Qc7+. If 36. Kg4, then Rh4+ forces White to give up queen for rook and knight to avoid mate, while 36. Be5
