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: 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

newzild: <AShultz>: Yes
   Dec-26-16 Petrosian vs Kotov, 1952 (replies)
newzild: Kibitzers are saying this was an awful game by Petrosian, but he simply miscalculated when playing 13. Nh4? Note that 17. Qg3 fails to 17...f5 18. Qg4 Ne5, winning a pawn.
   Dec-25-16 G A Thomas vs W Winter, 1927 (replies)
newzild: <Dr.Lecter> 17. Bc3?? Qxc3 18. Qxc3 Ne4+ Forks king and queen. Black emerges with an extra rook.
   Dec-07-16 J M Hodgson vs Seirawan, 1986
newzild: <JSYantiss> <Sally Simpson> White also has the simple 27. Rxb6, leaving him up by an exchange and two pawns.
   Dec-03-16 L B Hoyos Millan vs G Garcia, 1986 (replies)
newzild: In the final position, 19. c3 is forced. Play might continue: 19. c3 Qxd5+ 20. Kc2 Re2+ 21. Kb1 Black has a queen for rook and knight. I'm not sure what Black's next move should be, but 21...Bxc3 looks pretty good.

newzild: Very easy today - the queen capture jumps out almost immediately.
   Oct-31-16 Reti vs Tartakower, 1928 (replies)
newzild: Good to see an endgame puzzle on a Monday.
