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.

   Oct-22-17 C Bauer vs J M Iruzubieta Villaluenga, 2010 (replies)
newzild: ...also, White's mate commencing 20. Bh6+! only works because Black played 18. Qe7 instead of 18. Qd8, which would have provided a flight square after 20. Bh6+ Kxh6 21. Qh5+ Kg7 22. Qxh7+ Kxf6.
   Oct-21-17 N Sorokin vs M Gordian, 1926
newzild: Excellent pun for a change, and the game isn't too bad either.
   Oct-21-17 Yifan Hou vs B Yildiz, 2012
newzild: I went for 24...Rg8, with the idea 25. Rxd6 Rg1# <al wazir> pointed out White's only viable defence of 25. Rg4, when it looks to me as though 25...Rxg4 26. fxg4 (not 26. Qxg4 Rxd1+ 27. Bxd1 Rxd1+ 28. Kg2 Rg1+, as pointed out by <al wazir>) Qe7 is winning for Black.

newzild: The game R Lau vs H Teske, 1994 shouldn't be listed as "notable". It's a quick draw.
   Oct-19-17 Stoltz vs H Steiner, 1952 (replies)
newzild: A very impressive attack. <<Six66timesGenius>: 33.Bf6? Is a Blunder > How can it be a blunder if it forces an elementary win in two moves?
   Oct-18-17 G Mammadova vs N Batsiashvili, 2017 (replies)
newzild: <luzhin> 27. Qxe4 looks to me as though it's winning for Black: 27...Bxe4 28. Rxe4 Re2+ 29. Kf1 Rxe4 30. Re1 Rxe1+. However, your suggestion of 27. Qxf2 might hold: 27...Bxf2+ 28. Kf1 Bxe1 29. Rxe1 Black will win White's e5 pawn at some point, leaving a rook+pawn vs two ...
   Oct-16-17 G Lasya vs I Barchuk, 2016 (replies)
newzild: <<Autoreparaturwerkbau: clement41: Had the Bc8 been better developed, say on b7, it'd still be mate! And still monday-ish.> If Bc8 was on b7, then Ra8 would cover the back-rank and such combo would be impossible. Do you see something i don't?>> 22. Bxg7+ Nxg7 23. ...
   Oct-15-17 Polugaevsky vs E Torre, 1984 (replies)
newzild: 19. Bxh7+ is not only correct, but almost obligatory. White has a space advantage and is almost fully developed, while Black's knight and Queen's rook are out of play but will remain so for only a move or two. White can give up a piece almost by intuition.
   Oct-14-17 Kamsky vs M Kazhgaleyev, 2016 (replies)
newzild: I've had a few Saturday-night wines and my two main candidates were 32. Nc3 or 32. Rc7, with the former (correctly) based on creating light-squared shenanigans. However, I couldn't see far enough to claim that I solved this. The end of Kamsky's combination, from move 37, was truly ...
   Oct-11-17 P Cramling vs A Galliamova, 1994 (replies)
newzild: 39. c8=N+ is the best move because if forces Black to play 39...Rxc8. Promoting to Queen gives Black other options unnecessarily.
