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.

   Apr-28-17 Lutsko vs S B Berntsen Sahl, 2007 (replies)
newzild: I had a different move order: 24...Ng4+ 25. hxg4 Rxe2 Threatening 26...Bg1+, etc. 26. Qxe2 Qh4#
   Apr-28-17 Short vs Judit Polgar, 1994 (replies)
newzild: Pun would work better with a comma after "best". The significance of this game increases in the context of Short's correct but suicidal comments about female underperformance in the chess realm.
   Apr-25-17 G Milos vs P Carlsson, 2012 (replies)
newzild: <Phony Benoni> Yes, very good.
   Apr-12-17 Bisguier vs Fischer, 1961 (replies)
newzild: I agree with <birthtimes> that this game deserves more attention. Only a fool or a genius would give up his dark-squared bishop to win the exchange in a Benoni position.
   Apr-11-17 A Muzychuk vs Zhao Xue, 2016
newzild: <Morfishine> White's knight is en prise to Black's d-pawn for 11 straight moves. You don't think this has artistic merit?
   Apr-11-17 Bisguier vs Fischer, 1956 (replies)
newzild: <ChessHigherCat> After 33. Nc3? Rd6 34. Rxd6 Qxd6 35. Qxd6 Nxd6 White is hardly busted - the position is equal.
   Apr-08-17 V Milov vs G Borg, 2003 (replies)
newzild: I played this line with Black for a while (Bxc3, etc) but it's bad. White can obtain an advantage by playing an early e4 break.

newzild: <Bobsterman3000: <<it's a macho thing that appeals to this type of Neanderthal American psyche.>> Which is why the Kiwis are under the protection of the Anzus pact that guarantees that the US guard NZ and Australia. They may be popping off at the mouth now when ...

newzild: <RandomVisitor> In your "fortress" position, White's king invades on the light squares via the h-file and attacks Black's g-pawn. This is the kind of win a human can see more easily than a computer.

newzild: <nalinw> True dat.
