A former class A player over 25 years ago, I'm returning to studying chess as a hobby in retirement. Spending more time on end games and middle game tactics than openings now. I may try playing in tournaments again later, but for now I like the challenge of analyzing and trying to understand the subtlties of strong Master games.

patzer2: Police being killed and injured in the line of duty, and those deaths and injuries rising since the Aug 2014 Ferguson incident and the birth of BLM and the Democratic party support for it are no laughing matter. An Aug 15, 2014 report by Michelle Malkin at ...

patzer2: For today's solution, I figured 25. Qxf1 to is probably too easy for a Friday puzzle, so it must involve getting the White Queen to h5 for an attack on the exposed ...

patzer2: My attempt at today's Thursday puzzle (27...?) is a second best attempt with 27...Bf3 which according to the computer wins after 27...Bf3 28. Qb1 If 28. Bf1, then 28...Be4 29. Qd1 Nf3+ 30. Kh1 (30. Kg2 Nxd2+ ) 30... Bxg3 31. ...

patzer2: Found 49. Qg7+! for my Wednesday puzzle solution because I couldn't make 49. Qh7+ work. Indeed, 49. Qh7+?, which is the second best move, actually loses after 49. Qh7+ Kf8 50. Qxc7 Nxc7 (-2.70 @ 21 depth, Deep Fritz 15.) ...

patzer2: For our Tuesday puzzle (31. ?), Black is threatening mate. Thus, a move that combines defense and offense is necessary. After a quick look, it was obvious 31. Rg8+ Rxg8 32. Bc3+! (#9, Deep Fritz 15) yielding a discovered ...

patzer2: For a Black improvement, I'd replace the awkward 14...Bc6?! which allows 15. a3 (+0.48 @ 20 depth, Deep Fritz 15.) Instead, I prefer 14...a6 when play might continue 15. a3 Nc6 16. Qc2 h6 = (0.17 @ 20 depth, Deep Fritz 15). ...

patzer2: Here's my look at today's 19. Nf5! solution with Deep Fritz 15: <19. Nf5!! exf5> White offers a positional sacrifice of the Knight to generate attacking chances against Black's King. With perfect defense by Black, White gets a slight edge. With any misstep, Black gets crushed.
