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.

   Mar-16-18 W So vs Aronian, 2018 (replies)
newzild: <An Englishman: Good Morning: Another hard to understand game. For example, couldn't figure out why White didn't take the Exchange on move 32.> I think because after Black would have a nasty pawn roller after 32...axb5.

newzild: <<morfishine:> Piece of junk, totally composed>> You must be a lot of fun at parties.

newzild: <<epistle>: This is the game the Lord has made. Rejoice!> Isn't God meant to be on Wesley's side?
   Mar-10-18 Keres vs Spassky, 1965 (replies)
newzild: <<say it with a smile>: 18.d5! if 18..e5 then 19.Bb2 Black's queen-side white squares are wide open.> After 18. d5 e5, 19. Bb2 d6 20. Qa4+, I wonder if Black can regroup with 21...Nfd7!? followed by 22...Ke7 and 23...Nc5, when the pawn structure might suit the knights.
   Mar-07-18 Sasikiran vs S D Swapnil, 2017 (replies)
newzild: I got the first four moves, but prefered 42. Kg3 instead of 42. Qd5. However, 42. Qd5 is probably stronger because it threatens the c-pawn.
   Mar-04-18 Motylev vs M Godena, 2010 (replies)
newzild: I didn't get this. I started with the thought that White would try to trap Black's queen with the Nf3, but couldn't get that to work, then examined lines with 12. Bxf7+ and 12. Bd5, with both moves followed by 13. Qb3.

newzild: Happy birthday yesterday, Hou Yifan!
   Feb-27-18 K Zakoscielna vs K Bulski, 2008 (replies)
newzild: <once>, True, although an under-promotion on move 46 forces mate in three whereas most alternatives allow our victim a slower death with 46...Bxg7, as you point out yourself. However, your 46. Rg4 also mates in three.
   Feb-27-18 H Milligan vs S Wu, 2008 (replies)
newzild: <<offramp>: 14...0-0-0 was a move which lacked foresight.> Black is losing at least a pawn, I think. She has to play Ne5 either now or on the next move (after 14...Rd8 15. Rhe1+ Ne5), with White playing Rhe1 and capturing twice on e5. Other knight moves allow 15. Rhe1+ ...

newzild: Thanks, <Richard Taylor>. I remember him from the late '90s, when I used to play the occasional tournament in Wellington, Hamilton and Auckland.
