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.

   May-26-16 G Szilagyi vs Robatsch, 1966 (replies)
patzer2: Prior to looking at today's Thursday problem, I had just viewed a video lecture by Jeremy Silman where he discussed the importance of recognizing patterns ripe for a tactical resolution, rather than relying solely on your ability to calculate long variations to a decisive result. In
   May-25-16 B Koch vs J Jezek, 1956 (replies)
patzer2: For today's Wednesday solution, like <BXChess>, I also picked 31. Rxh7+ Rxh7 32. Nxh7 which wins with a Queen Fork (double attack) after 32...Qxh7 33. Qf6+ (#10, Deep Fritz 15). A pretty side line after 32. Nxh7 is ...
   May-24-16 W Buis vs E J Diemer, 1956 (replies)
patzer2: <al wazir> You're right. I stand corrected. Deimer did indeed win this game playing Black against his own opening. This was not the only game where Deimer played Black against this opening. The computer improvement 6. Bg5 was played against Deimer in Bogoljubov vs E J Diemer, ...
   May-23-16 Navara vs E Inarkiev, 2016
patzer2: Black's surpise 20...d4! (-4.00 @ 28 depth, Stockfish 7) proves White's g-pawn advance with 19. g4? and 20. g5? to be a flawed plan. Instead, 19. Rd2 Ne5 20. Rfd1 Rd7 21. Nd3 = holds the position.
   May-23-16 M Golubev vs G Sagalchik, 1983 (replies)
patzer2: Today's Monday solution 17. Rh8+ Bxh8 18. Qh3 is a good-to-know basic mating pattern for an attack on the fianchettoed Bishop and castled King on an open h-file. For a Black opening improvement, instead of the rare 5...g6, I ...
   May-21-16 Movsesian vs A Adly, 2015 (replies)
patzer2: Great game by the Egyptian GM Ahmed Adly for our Saturday puzzle (36...?). According to the computers, Black's 36...Ng3+ (-3.52 @ 31 depth, Stockfish 290116) is winning. However, much stronger is 36...Qxf3!
   May-20-16 Saidy vs Suttles, 1966 (replies)
patzer2: Lest anyone suggest Suttles' "modern" opening strategy 1. c4 g6 is out of date and unplayable, they should take a look at the recent computer game Protector vs Komodo, 2016 when Black was able to equalize and draw after 4...Nc6.
   May-18-16 Robson vs Lingala Sri Harsha, 2006 (replies)
patzer2: Impressive play from a young Ray Robson in the World U-12 Championship. For an early opening improvement for Black, I prefer the popular move 7...Be7 = (0.17 @ 37 depth, Komodo 9.42) as in Nakamura vs A Giri, 2016 . The strong move which gives white a decisive advantage is 19. Ra3!
   May-16-16 H E Myers vs Tirso Alvarez, 1966 (replies)
patzer2: Black's final decisive mistake was 13...Nxd7? allowing 14. Bxe7 (+1.82 @ 17 depth, Deep Fritz 15). Instead, 13...Kxd7! 14. Qb5+ c6 (-1.22 @ 15 depth, Deep Fritz 15) ...
   May-14-16 M Matlakov vs M Yilmazyerli, 2016 (replies)
patzer2: Instead of 11...c6, perhaps a bit better for Black is the computer suggestion 11...Bxc3 12. Nxc3 .
