Member since Oct-13-07 · Last seen Jul-12-18
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.

   Jul-11-18 J Cox vs D Guthrie, 2016 (replies)
 
newzild: Similar to <Patzer2>'s failed try, my first thought was 40. Rc6, apparently winning a minor piece. However, a second glance showed that 40. Rc6 Nd3 41. R(either)xe6 loses to 41...Nf4+. Only then did I see the game continuation.
 
   Jul-10-18 K Marx vs Meyer, 1867
 
newzild: <patzer2> The US currently ranks only 19th in the world for economic freedom, is no better than other Western countries with political freedom, and has a worse human rights record than many Western countries. So quite a long way down the list for has "the best combination of ...
 
   Jul-10-18 F Vallejo Pons vs J Santos Latasa, 2018
 
newzild: <GreenLantern> is correct - White's final move was a blunder, and Black made an even bigger blunder by resigning! 68. Rh8+?? Kxh8 69. Kxg6 Rxe5 and Black wins.
 
   Jul-05-18 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2007 (replies)
 
newzild: <ChessHigherCat> MC Hammer is a musician who released a song called "U Can't Touch This", which is alluded to by <RookFile> below. MC is also Magnus Carlsen's initials. MC got "hammered" in the sense that he was badly beaten.
 
   Jul-04-18 Morphy vs T J Bryan, 1859 (replies)
 
newzild: <al wazir> As alluded to by <Mendrys>, 16...Kd6?? loses the queen to 17. e5+. To take your line further, after 17. Rad1+ Kc5 White has 18. Nd4! rather than 18. Ne7, which also wins the queen because of the mate threats.

newzild: <penguincw> I appreciate your honesty.
 
   May-12-18 V Gashimov vs Gelfand, 2009 (replies)
 
newzild: <15. Bg6 Interesting suggestion, <Despot1985>. The only way to avoid mate appears to be the queen sac 15...Qf8. After 16.Bxf8 hxg6 17.Qxg6+ Kxf8 white should still win, with Q+p (including passed g and h pawns) vs. 3 minor pieces, plus the fact that black still has not ...
 
   Apr-26-18 K Grigoryan vs T L Petrosian, 2017 (replies)
 
newzild: <ndg2> Unfortunately, the Black queen can escape with 23...Qa6.
 
   Apr-21-18 A Sharevich vs I Krush, 2018 (replies)
 
newzild: Sharevich's cunning 5. Nbd2 prompts Krush to fall into a known opening trap with the natural 5...c5? After 6. Nc4 d5 7. Ne5, as played in this game, White has the double threat 8. Bb5+ and 8. Ng5. Krush avoids these threats only at the expense of allowing her king to be caught in ...
 
   Apr-20-18 Tal vs K Spraggett, 1985
 
newzild: On his website, Spraggett says that he couldn't believe Tal's blunder with 22. Qf3, as the refutation is so elementary. Tal "psyched him out" after the blunder, staring at him and doing everything he could to upset Spraggett's concentration. Spraggett became nervous, and started ...
