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.

   Jul-28-15 R Wojtaszek vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2015
patzer2: White's slow squeeze to gain a space advantage is telling in this game. According to Fritz, the decisive mistake is likely 27...Nc7 when 28. Na5! (+1.30 @ 26 depth, Deep Fritz 14) is near decisive.
   Jul-28-15 V Zavoronkov vs V Bukhteeva, 2012 (replies)
patzer2: <jith1207> According to Fritz, White's moves are level or better until the blunder 23. Rf1?? Though I must admit from a human player perspective 14.0-0-0?! looks suspect. However, Fritz indicates this Queenside castling move leaves White with a level game. Seems to me 14. ...
   Jul-27-15 C Bloodgood vs Jackson, 1976 (replies)
patzer2: Even in Blitz I think I'd see 19...h6 .
   Jul-27-15 Navara vs M Keller, 2000
patzer2: If Black replies to 23. Nf6+ with 23... Kh8 White wins after 24. Nxh7! Kxh7 (24... Nc2 25. Qh4 Nxe1 26. Nf6#; 24... Kg8 25. Nxf8 Rxf8 26. Rac1 ) 25. Qh4+ Kg8 26. Ng5 ...
   Jul-27-15 E Bankert vs R Ehrler, 2007 (replies)
patzer2: White's first (and likely decisive) mistake was 10. cxd4? Instead, 10. h3! (+0.46 @ 21 depth, Deep Fritz 14) as in Navara vs M Keller, 2000 would have refuted 8...Ng5? and left White with a clear advantage. White's second ...
   Jul-26-15 A Yegiazarian vs I Ivanisevic, 2000
patzer2: After the mistake 28...Qc7?, White's 29. Nc5! was a fine winning move. If 29...Nxc5! then 30. Bxe5 pins and wins the Queen.
   Jul-26-15 M Bartel vs A Jankovic, 2009
patzer2: Black's <25...Ba6?> is a mistake which White could have immediately punished with 26. Ndc6! (+4.33 @ 21 depth, Deep Fritz 14). After 26. Nc4, Black could have put up more resistance with 26...Bxc4 27. dxc4 Rd8
   Jul-26-15 D Aldama Degurnay vs G Kacheishvili, 2014
patzer2: Despite the win, Black made a decisive mistake with <15...dxe5?> when White could have turned the tables and won after <16. fxg4 exd4> with 17. Bxd4! (+4.63 @ 20 Depth, Deep Fritz 14). Unfortunately the better ...
   Jul-26-15 Kupreichik vs I Radulov, 1980 (replies)
patzer2: Here's my look at the game and the Sunday puzzle (21. ?) with the opening explorer (OE) and Deep Fritz 14: <1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 d6 6. Bc4 Qb6> With 917 games in the OE, this is the second most popuar move. The most popular move, ...
   Jul-25-15 Sutovsky vs V Mikhalevski, 2008
patzer2: <Saturn2> After 24...Nf6+ gxf6 25. Qxf6 O-O 26. Bh6 (26. Bf6 is impossible) 26...Qg6 27. Qh4 Nf3+ (-25.32 @ 20 depth, Deep Fritz 14) White drops the Queen and is clearly lost.
