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.

newzild: The first two moves are obvious, but the third is not. According to Stockfish, 43. Rxc8! (winning) is much stronger than 43. b7 (clear advantage White). In the game line, after 44...Rh8, 45. Nd8! is indeed strongest, but not the only winning move. For example, the simple 45...Be2 ...

newzild: <lunchwithgina> Morphy vs Morphy would be a good place to start.
 
   Jan-11-19 Yusupov vs Gulko, 1990 (replies)
 
newzild: Not 35. Bxc4?? Rxh3 mate The best chance is probably 35. Nxg6, when 35...fxg6 36. Qxc4 looks unclear, although Black also has 35...Nxg6 36. Bxc4 Rf3.

newzild: 23. Ng6+ hg 24. Qh3+ Bh4 25. Rxf8+ Qxf8 26. Qxh4#
 
   Dec-19-18 J Rudd vs E Dearing, 2004 (replies)
 
newzild: There is an interesting try based on the opposite move order: 38...Nd3+ 39. Nxd3 Qf3+ 40. Kxd1 Rh1+ 41. Rg1 Rxg1# Unfortunately, 38...Rxd3 rains on Black's parade.

newzild: <Domdaniel> The fact that other Henrys exist doesn't make it a pun either.
 
   Dec-12-18 J Henseler vs D Klein, 2011 (replies)
 
newzild: <<SeanAzarin:> I must be suffering from chess-blindness, because I don't see what's wrong with 29 RxR.> 29. Rxg2 Rxg2 30. Qxg2 Qe1+ 31. Kc2 Ne3+ Followed by 32. Nxg2
 
   Dec-09-18 A Nakamura vs Nakamura, 2001
 
newzild: <maxi> Nice spotting with your 31...Bc4 line. I also wondered why White didn't simply play 32. Qxe3 Rxe3 33. Kd2. However, after 33...Re4, I think Black has drawing chances.
