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.

patzer2: <Boster><13...Qc5+ 14.Kh1 Nxe4 Is it safe?> Fritz assesses it as slightly favorable to White after 15. Nxe4 Qxb5 16. Nd6 Qxb2 17. Qd5 (position below). [DIAGRAM] Don't know if it's safe, but I wouldn't mind ...

patzer2: After <Catfriend>'s 11...Bh3! 12. Qa4 Bxg2 13. Rg1 Bxf3 14. Bxf3 Qxh2 <15. Rh1> I like Fritz's 15...Qd6 (instead of 15...Qe5). Fritz evaluates the position after 15...Qd6 as a pawn plus for Black (15...Qe5 recommended by <Catfriend> is evaluated by Fritz as equal).
   Sep-30-14 Navara vs Korchnoi, 2008
patzer2: Here's my look at the recent Sunday (28. ?) puzzle and game using Fritz 12: <24. Bc2 Kf8> Better is 24...Qc4 = to , which puts up more resistance and offers practical drawing chances. <25. h4 Kg8> Again, Black ...
   Sep-30-14 I Bilek vs Szily, 1954
patzer2: White's win begins earlier than the two-move-mate 29. Bh6+ Rxh6 30. Qg7#. The decisive combination begins with the combined pin and clearance move 25. Qh8! . This clever move (25. Qh8!) not only pins the Knight and defends the
   Sep-26-14 R Figares vs K McDonald, 1996
patzer2: As we progress through the week, and the daily puzzles get harder, the more difficult puzzles toward the end of the week (i.e. Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday) usually combine a number of tactical themes. Yesterday's Thursday puzzle solution is a case in point. The winning ...
   Sep-24-14 Beliavsky vs Tarjan, 1979 (replies)
patzer2: In solving today's Wednesday puzzle, one decoy (44. Bd5+ Nxd5) and two deflections (45. Rg6+ Kf7 46. e6+ Ke8) allow White to complete a mate-in-five with 47. Rg8+ Qf8 48. Qxf8#. Black can delay by giving up his Queen with 46...Qxe6, but, as <gofer> posted, White then makes it ...
   Sep-23-14 Aronian vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
patzer2: In the final position after 46. e4!, should he not resign, Black's best try appears to be 46...Rc4 (diagram below). [DIAGRAM] From here, Fritz finds mate-in-eight with 47. Qg5+ Kf7 48. Rh7! Ke8 (48... Rg4 49. Rxg7+ Kf8 50. Qe7#) 49. Qxg7 Rxh4+ 50. gxh4 Kd8 51. Qe7+ Kc8 52. Rh8+ Qe8 ...

patzer2: Got 35...Ng3+! for my Tuesday puzzle solution, seeing 36. Rxg3 fxg3 37. Qe2 g2+ 38. Qxg2 Rxg2 . However, it took me a while because I kept looking at the difficulties of 35...Rxg2?? 36. Kxg2??
   Sep-22-14 Sasikiran vs E Berg, 2008
patzer2: The Sunday Sep 21, 2014 puzzle's difficulty lies in the sacrifice accepted line after 22. Nxf7!! Kxf7 23. Qh5+ Bg6 24. d6+ Kf8 (diagram below) [DIAGRAM] 25. d7!! Bxh5 (25...Rxe4 26. Bd6+ Qe7 27. Rf1+ Rf4 28. Rxf4+ Bf6 29. Qh6#) 26. Bd6+ Re7 27. Rf1+ Bf6 [DIAGRAM] 28. Rxe7! Qxe7 29. ...
   Sep-18-14 R Rabiega vs G Schebler, 2004 (replies)
patzer2: <Pedro Fernandez: The first 8 plies are easy to find out and this is my whole variation: 26.Rb5+ cxb5 27.Qd6+ Ka7 28.axb5 a4 29.b6+ Ka6 30.Nc5+> After 30...Kb5, does White still have a win? Maybe 30. Qb4! is a good alternative.
