A former class A player almost 20 years ago, I'm returning to chess as a hobby in retirement. Spending more time studying end games and middle games 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.

   Apr-19-15 Taimanov vs Vaganian, 1977 (replies)
patzer2: I'm surprised Taimanov's excellent game analysis doesn't mention Black's decisive mistake <24...Ba6?> Instead, Black can hold an equal position with 24... Nxe5 25. Rxe5 Bg4 26. Rde1 Rf8 = to (-0.39 @ 29 depth, Deep ...
   Apr-18-15 M Wilder vs A Lein, 1981 (replies)
patzer2: Here's a look with Deep Fritz 14 at a key position in the game (21...?) and today's Saturday puzzle position (22. ?): <21...Rad8?> This natural positional move doubling rooks on the d-file can't be wrong, can it? Yes it can, because it allows White the near winning combination
   Apr-17-15 Verlinsky vs I Rabinovich, 1925
patzer2: As <Fishermon> and <HelaNubo> discussed on page 1 of the kibitzing here back in 2007, Black's decisive blunder was 31...Qd2? This threatening move overlooked the winning 10-move combination (solving today's Friday puzzle) 32. Qxc7+ Rxc7 33. Rxc7+ Kb8 34. Rc1+ (or 34. ...
   Apr-16-15 E Arnlind vs S Bernstein, 1965 (replies)
patzer2: Right piece but wrong square for me on my failed try at today's Thursday puzzle solution with 16. Nc6? which is refuted by 16...Qd6 =. Here's a look at a few key moves in the game and puzzle position with Deep Fritz 14: <12...Nc4?> This appears to be the losing move as it ...
   Apr-16-15 Y Habu vs C Ertan, 2014
patzer2: Perhaps the Deep Fritz 14 suggestion 21. Re3 would have held, when play might go 21. Re3 21. Re3 Rae8 22. Nf1! Rxe3 23. Nxe3 Bf3 24. g4 Bxg2 25. gxh5 Be4 26. a4 Kg7 27. axb5 axb5 28. h6+ Kg6 29. Nf1 Ng4 30. Ra6 Rc8 31. Ng3 Bxg3 32. hxg3 Nxh6 33. Ra7 f5 34. d5! Ng4 35. d6 Rd8 36. Bf4
   Apr-15-15 Jessica Mendoza vs Javier Perez Meisegeier, 2005 (replies)
patzer2: <mike1: hmmm, did somebody come up with an idea why Blacks 23...Bh3 works? 24. gxh3 Qxh3 runs into 25.Qe6+ or> Actually, 23...Bh3? doesn't work. It loses to 24. gxh3! Qxh3 25. Qe6+! (+2.74 @ 20 depth, Deep Fritz 14).
   Apr-13-15 Miles vs J Franco Jimenez, 1994 (replies)
patzer2: <FlashinthePan: Would 24...Bd6 to intercept White's control of g8 have held?> Think you mean 24...Be6, in which case it appears to hold with White having a pawn advantage. See Deep Fritz 14 analysis in my first post above.
   Apr-11-15 J Blake vs G A Hooke, 1891
patzer2: Here's a look at a few key moves in the Friday puzzle game (9. ?) with Deep Fritz 14: <3...f5?> This gives White a clear and strong advantage. Better was 3...Nc6 =, 3...Nf6 = or 3...Be7 =. <4. d4!> After this reply, Black's game goes down hill as he can no longer ...
   Apr-10-15 K W Troff vs Nakamura, 2015
patzer2: A good weekend puzzle candidate would be 26...Nxf2!! . The combination was set up by 24. Qd3? (better was 24. Rb3! ) 24...Qh61
   Apr-09-15 Lu Shanglei vs Ni Hua, 2012
patzer2: The decisive mistake appears to have been 10. Nxd4?! allowing 10...Qh4+! . Instead 10. Ng5! appears to hold the balance after 10...Nhf4! 11. Bxg4 Qxg5 12. Nh3 Qa5+ 13. Bd2 Bb4 14. Nxf4 Nxf4 15. Bf3 =. An early interesting ...
