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.

   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 ...

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 ...
   Apr-04-18 Karpov vs Chandler, 1983 (replies)
newzild: Move 28... would make a good Saturday puzzle.
   Apr-04-18 Murray Chandler
newzild: Happy birthday, Muzza!
   Apr-03-18 K Wight vs H R Jung, 2008 (replies)
newzild: <saturn2> <once> After 28. Re1+ Ne4, not only is 29. Rxe4+ a check, but White mates prettily after 29...Kd7 30. Re7+! Kxe7 31. Nc6+ Kd7 32. Qd8#.
   Mar-27-18 Bagirov vs Gufeld, 1973
newzild: <Morfishine> With 4...Nf6 it becomes fully a Kings Indian.
   Mar-16-18 W So vs Aronian, 2018 (replies)
newzild: <An Englishman: Good Morning: Another hard to understand game. For example, couldn't figure out why White didn't take the Exchange on move 32.> I think because after Black would have a nasty pawn roller after 32...axb5.
   Mar-14-18 R Runau vs Schmidt, 1972 (replies)
newzild: <<morfishine:> Piece of junk, totally composed>> You must be a lot of fun at parties.
