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.

   Sep-01-14 M Willich vs P Fink, 2004 (replies)
patzer2: <offramp: This is the Best Zwesten.> Good one! Didn't catch it until I saw the location of the tournament in "Bad Zwestin," a small spa and health resort town in Germany and related it to the US "Best Western" hotel chain. As I recall from my four year stay in Germany in the ...
   Aug-31-14 Caruana vs Aronian, 2014
patzer2: In the final position, if instead of resigning Black tries 50...Nd8 (diagram below), [DIAGRAM] then Black wins a piece and the game with 51. f8=Q+! Nxf8 52. Rg5+ Kh6 53. Rg8 Nf7 54. Rxf8 .
   Aug-31-14 A Moiseenko vs Y Kuzubov, 2008 (replies)
patzer2: So close yet so far away in solving this Sunday puzzle. Got 29. Bg5! Qxe1+ 30. Rf1 Qxf1 31. Kxf1 Bxg2+, but bombed with 32. Kxg2?? allowing 32...d2! . Instead 32. Ke1! is the only winning move (all others lose). Ditto for 33. ...
   Aug-30-14 M Dziuba vs A Ipatov, 2009 (replies)
patzer2: Very instructive 30. Qg3!! solution to our Saturday puzzle, with perfect follow-up and execution by White for every move of this long combination. If you go to the end of the game and play it backwards for the last 9 to 10 moves the combination becomes very clear. I completely ...
   Aug-29-14 J Seoane vs I Prieto, 1986 (replies)
patzer2: <FSR> Thanks for sharing GM John Shaw's interesting 9...Nh6! recommendation. It may well offer Black better practical chances than the difficult 9...Be7!? Fritz first choice.
   Aug-28-14 Rublevsky vs J Becerra-Rivero, 1997
patzer2: <Boster> Thanks for sharing the <crazy> 29...Rf3 30. Na4! idea (diagram below). [DIAGRAM] It's as if White says, "I interrupt your poisoned Rook offer 29...Rf3 to threaten your Queen and protect against mate with ...
   Aug-27-14 Shirov vs S Kristjansson, 2004 (replies)
patzer2: Shirov's 17. Nf4! to is a particularly clever positional move, ignoring the attack on the Bishop to improve the position by forcing the exchange of Black's strongest ...
   Aug-26-14 Botvinnik vs N Sorokin, 1933 (replies)
patzer2: <Wwiteshark><Once><Chess Dad><Zanzibar><JimNorCal> Thanks for taking the time to look at and appreciate the swindle possibilities after 12...Qb6!? As you saw 12...Qb6!? 13. Bb5+! wins for White. ...
   Aug-25-14 J D Turner vs I Ponter, 2004 (replies)
patzer2: <ruzon> Your "something else" is illustrated in this game with White's 27th move 27. Bd4! [DIAGRAM] Here White has ignores the pawn's attack on his Knight to play 27. Bd4! with a mating attack. While 27. Bd4! is decisive, White could've played 27. Rxh7+! right away with ...
   Aug-24-14 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1984 (replies)
patzer2: <Everett><Specifically, White would plays after <48..Bg6 49.Nf4 <keeping Black's K back> Bf7 50.Kh4> and White wins the h-pawn and is in perfect position to outflank the Black K if the minors come off.> So does White have a forced win after 48...Bg6?
