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.

   Feb-06-16 Svidler vs F Vallejo Pons, 2004 (replies)
patzer2: Missed badly on this Saturday morning puzzle, ending my streak at 5 solutions in a row this week. I considered the game winner 25...Rfb8!!, but didn't pick it because I stopped my calculation when it appeared Black was too far down in material after 26. Qxc5. As a result, I didn't ...
   Feb-05-16 Jobava vs Galego, 2005 (replies)
patzer2: <Devere...I didn't look at Jobava's move 26.Rg4, which seems better than the more spectacular 26. Rd5.> Same here. I was just happy to find a winning continuation after the obstruction 26. Rd5! However, I made it a point to look at the winning lines after Jobova's 26. Rg4
   Feb-04-16 J Gallagher vs A Compton, 2014 (replies)
patzer2: <mel Gibson><perfidious> Let's check. In the game if instead of 27...Qf5?, Black plays 27...Nd5 (diagram below): [DIAGRAM] and <there would follow 28.Rxd5 28....exd5 29.Rc1> (diagram below), [DIAGRAM] Black has the saving resource 29...Rc4! when play might continue
   Feb-03-16 I Krush vs J L Watson, 2016
patzer2: Black was doing find until the mistake 25...Bxe6?, allowing 26. Ng3 , 26. Nd7 or 26. Ne7 (+1.09 @ 24 depth, Deep ...
   Feb-03-16 Sundararajan vs I Ivanisevic, 2014 (replies)
patzer2: In the opening, instead of 6. Nc3, I slightly prefer 6. d4 as in J L Hammer vs Fressinet, 2015 .
   Feb-02-16 A Jakubiec vs M Godard, 2013 (replies)
patzer2: White's win actually begins a move earlier with 35. Nf7+! when, instead of 35...Kh7 allowing mate-in-three, Black can prolong the game with 35...Qxf7 (diagram below): [DIAGRAM] Here white wins after 36. Qxf7 hxg5 37. Rxg5 Bh6 38. Qf6+! when play might continue 38...Bg7 (38... Kh7 ...
   Feb-01-16 R Rapport vs D Anton Guijarro, 2016 (replies)
patzer2: White's decisive mistake was 28. Qd3? allowing 28...Nb6! with the triple threat 29...Nxd7 , 29...Qf2+ 30. Kh1 Qxg2# and 29. Bxb6 Qxb6+ 30. Kh1 Qf2 31. Qf3 Nxg3+ 32. Kh2
   Feb-01-16 J Houska vs T Hebbes, 2014 (replies)
patzer2: Well 32. Rxe8+ Kxe8 33. Bb5 forcing a pin for simplification to a won King and pawn ending should be easy enough for our regulars, but I suspect it might be slightly difficult for novices and younger junior players. For an ...
   Jan-31-16 S Popov vs V Jeremic, 2006
patzer2: Don't like 16...Be6. After liquidating the isolated pawn typical of the Tarrash, Black rushes into trade pieces and create another isolated pawn. My preference would be the more flexible 16...Re8.
   Jan-31-16 Tomashevsky vs Caruana, 2016 (replies)
patzer2: White seems to have improved over 12. exd4= in the game S Popov vs V Jeremic, 2006 with 12. Ng5! . It's not in the database. Maybe it's a novelty. Black's 17...Rc4? appears to be a decisive error, which allows ...
