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.

newzild: <Lambda> Yes, I agree. I cannot think of any method better than Chessmetrics, which is at least based on an algorithm.

newzild: Paravan has just played his immortal game: David Paravyan vs Saveliy Golubov Korchnoi Memorial (2018), Round 6 Petrov's Defense (C42) 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. Nxe5 d6 4. Nf3 Nxe4 5. d4 d5 6. Bd3 Bd6 7. O-O O-O 8. c4 c6 9. Qb3 dxc4 10. Bxc4 Nd7 11. Re1 Ndf6 12. Nbd2 Nxd2 13. Bxd2
   Sep-12-18 E Bebchuk vs Bronstein, 1974 (replies)
newzild: I don't miss the puns. They were usually awful.
   Sep-10-18 Max Weiss vs J W Baird, 1889 (replies)
newzild: Any modern player familiar with Nimzowitsch will readily identify all the flaws in Black's game - notably his complete failure to blockade on the d5 square. "First blockade, then destroy!"
   Sep-06-18 Topalov vs Bareev, 2002 (replies)
newzild: Can somebody explain 15...Kxd7 for this dunce? All I can think of is 15...Qxd7 16. Nf5 ef 17. 0-0-0 followed by 18. Rhe1. Cheers.
   Sep-06-18 J Xiong vs Shabalov, 2017 (replies)
newzild: What <NBZ> said.
   Aug-29-18 V Rozic vs M Velcheva, 2008
newzild: I saw that 36. Rf3 wins and stopped there. 36. Rf3 Qc7 37. Bxh7 Devastating, as 37...Rxh7 is met by 38. Rf8+ Kg7 39. Qf6#
   Aug-26-18 A H T dos Santos Fier vs K Leenhouts, 2017 (replies)
newzild: <Walter Glattke> Your variations are mostly correct, but Black does not have 32...Qd1# because White's king is defending that square. So White wins after your 32. Qxb8.
   Aug-13-18 Berliner vs Fischer, 1963 (replies)
newzild: This game really is in True Fischer Style. "His play is so simple - like a child's" - Botvinnik
   Aug-06-18 J Cobb vs Adams, 2002 (replies)
newzild: Interesting enough to be a good selection for Game of the Day. I like the title too - most of the daily puns are lame, so good to see somebody try something different.
