Member since May-20-03 · Last seen Apr-29-17
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: <Mateo: Interesting endgame Knight vs Bishop. 34...Bd5? should be the losing move. 34...Bd7, impeding Nf5, should hold.> I agree. I played it out on Deep Fritz 15, analyzing 34...Bd7, with the following result: 34... Bd7 35. Kd2 Kg8 36. Ke3 Kf7 37. Nb3 Ke6 38. Kd4 Kd6 39. Nc5 ...

patzer2: Deeper analysis of the improvement 25. e4 with Stockfish 8 indicates it's worth only equality for White after 25.e4 Ne3+ 26.Rxe3 Bxe3 27.Qxf6 Qxg2+ 28.Ke2 Bb6 29.Qf4+ Bc7 30.Qxf7 Qg4+ 31.Kd2 Bd6 32.Qf6 Kc7 = (0.13 @ 35 depth, Stockfish 8)

patzer2: <ChessHigherCat> Thanks! I don't write for any chess publications. Other than the opportunity for anyone to kibitz here, there's not much demand for retired class A players offering analysis of Master games.
