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.

   Nov-16-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
newzild: Game officially drawn. Even Stockfish missed the win with Nf3.
   Nov-09-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
newzild: Very similar to A Bodnaruk vs S Vega Gutierrez, 2018 , which occurred just one week earlier.
   Nov-09-18 A Bodnaruk vs S Vega Gutierrez, 2018
newzild: Very similar to Game 1 of the 2018 World Chess Championship, which occurred just one week later: Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018
   Nov-08-18 Waitzkin vs E Frumkin, 1987 (replies)
newzild: This was supposedly the first time Waitzkin beat a master, but Frumkin's career high Elo is only 2150 so this seems to be wrong.
   Nov-04-18 L White vs NN, 2003
newzild: <mike1> Yes, that knight sacrifice is known as Cochrane's Gambit, and it is my standard line against the Petroff. It is very difficult to refute, especially in blitz or rapid, unless Black is well-versed in the line 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. Nxe5 d6 4. Nxf7 Kxf7 5. d4 c5!
   Nov-02-18 M Huda vs D Komarov, 2005
newzild: This whole tournament was apparently fake. Details here:
   Oct-17-18 H Wolf vs Tarrasch, 1923
newzild: Yes, White could have won - and he knew it. <Wolf described an incident during his game against Tarrasch. Wolf had White, but accepted a draw offer in a winning position. Shortly before the adjournment of the game, his brother appeared and wished to talk to him in an important ...
   Oct-06-18 Schmaltz vs R Har-Zvi, 2001 (replies)
newzild: <ketchuplover> Thanks mate!
   Oct-06-18 I D Dorfman vs Tseshkovsky, 1978 (replies)
newzild: Added to my collection Game Collection: The Best Games You've Never Heard Of on account of the unique mating combo.
   Oct-04-18 Karpov vs Timman, 1988 (replies)
newzild: <bcokugras: What happens if black plays 28.RxR?> Good question. At first glance, White has 29. Re8 Qb5 (or 29...Qb4) 30. b8=Q+, but the simple 30...Qxb8 31. Rxb8 Kxb8 is winning for Black. However, White has the zwischenzug 30. Ra8+, forcing the Black king onto the b-file and ...
