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.

   Jan-12-18 C Van Buskirk vs D Gurevich, 1987 (replies)
newzild: <jimfromprovidence>: 30...Nc4 looks winning to me. a) 31. Bxc4 Qxe3+ 32. Qxe3 Rxe3+ Followed by 33...Rxc3 and White's remaining bishop is embarrassed for safe squares. b) 31. Qc2 Qxe3+ 32. Kh2 Not 32. Kh4 Qxf4# 32...Rc1 and Black has time to save his knight
   Jan-05-18 Keres vs C N Barnes, 1975 (replies)
newzild: <ChessHigherCat: <clement41: If 16...Qxa2 (which can be played provided black foresaw the resource ...Nxe4! to save his queen)> I think 16. Qxa2 Ra1 17. Qb3 Nc1! works, too. Then if Nxe4 as suggested by <Rook File> Rxe4 and the Queen can't escape to c4.> ...
   Jan-05-18 Ivanchuk vs Dreev, 1987 (replies)
newzild: <<jimfromprovidence> And defensively, 26 Qg5 prevents 26...Rf6.> White has a cute mate here: 25...Kh7 26. Qg5 Rf6 27. Qh5+ Kg8 28. Qh8+ Kf7 29. Re7+ Kxg6 30. Rg7+ Kf5 31. Qh3#
   Jan-04-18 D Belenkaya vs A Kashlinskaya, 2016 (replies)
newzild: Found the key move after a long drink and an even longer think.
   Jan-03-18 S Schneider vs T Beerdsen, 2016 (replies)
newzild: My first miss of the year. Like most other people, I played the incorrect 21...Nxe5, which is only equal after 22. Qxb7.
   Dec-30-17 Zukertort vs J Noa, 1887 (replies)
newzild: Good game!
   Dec-19-17 I Myall vs C Rice, 2015 (replies)
newzild: A couple of Elo 2000 players play the type of nondescript game you might see at any club on a Sunday afternoon. I agree with other posters who are puzzled as to why this is game of the day.
   Dec-16-17 W Norton vs J Sarfati, 1977
newzild: Jonathan must have been in time trouble towards the end. 30...Qd5+ followed by 31...Bd4 looks like a better defence, although White will probably win with his h-pawn.
   Dec-14-17 O Chajes vs Capablanca, 1916 (replies)
newzild: <ughaibu> Nobody ever drew a game by resigning.
   Dec-12-17 L Dubeck vs R Weinstein, 1958 (replies)
newzild: Spectacular! White handles his initiative so well, he is able to leave his queen en prise to a knight for five moves. Added to my Game Collection: The Best Games You've Never Heard Of
