Member since Oct-13-07 · Last seen Aug-23-17
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: <WorstPlayerEver> What is your solution after White plays Qe1? [DIAGRAM]

newzild: <offramp> Thanks for posting those. The Kalegin game is really something!

newzild: A remarkable display of artistry. By move 19, White has sacrificed four pawns. Black's King and Queen have traded places and his four other pieces are on their original squares!

newzild: Good Tuesday puzzle for Black's 19th.

newzild: Two keys today - White needs to get his knight to d6, and can do that with both 24. Ne8+ and Nb5+. It's always cute when two knights deliver mate.

newzild: Missed it - I went for the game line of 34...Qxh2+. As pointed out by several posters, 34...Rg8 is best.

newzild: <<swclark25>: Got everything down to move 30. Why not 30)....Nc6+ rather than 30)...Nc4> Because after 30...Nc6+ 31. Kxe5, Black only has a slight material advantage (the exchange for a pawn), whereas 30...Nc4 threatens 30...Nxd2, winning another exchange and pawn.
 
   Jul-27-17 Tarrasch vs S Rosselli del Turco, 1925
 
newzild: White could have avoided immediate loss of the pawn by 31. Rff2 or Rdf2, although Black can play for ...g5.

newzild: <MissScarlett> Ha ha.
 
   Jul-26-17 A Gavrilov vs B Grachev, 2007
 
newzild: <saturn2: <newzild> It is 4 vs 5 pawns after your move 35> It's effectively a two pawn advantage, because of the doubled pawns on the a-file.
