Member since May-20-03 · Last seen Jul-27-16
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.

   Jul-27-16 A Dueckstein vs H Kramer, 1956
patzer2: 26...Kh7? was the losing move. Instead, <WorstPlayerEver>'s suggestion 26...Kf6 27. Qh5 Rh8 28. Rad1 Rxd1 29. Rxd1 Qe5 30. Qxe5+ Kxe5 = (0.24 @ 23 depth, Deep Fritz 15) holds.
   Jul-25-16 I Kovalenko vs Smirin, 2016 (replies)
patzer2: Strong and precisely played attack by White against a tough king's Indian player.
   Jul-25-16 Jakovenko vs Sutovsky, 2016
patzer2: It seems 11. Ne5?! was overly ambitious. A more solid try appears to be 11. dxc5 with an unbalanced position and a roughly level game. Perhaps 13. Nd5+!? exd5 14. Bxd5 would have complicated the game enough to give White ...
   Jul-25-16 A Giri vs Anand, 2016
patzer2: White was fine up until 30. Qc2?! 30... Qa5 . Instead, 30. Kg2 Qa5 31. Kh3 = (0.00 @ 19 depth, Deep Fritz 15) gives White a level, defendable position.
   Jul-25-16 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2016 (replies)
patzer2: <The Rocket: <Naka is getting better with age.> Did you actually view the game? Carlsen had a hallucination in a superior position and lost a pawn for nothing.> You have a point, in that 21. g5? is inferior to the simple 21. exd5
   Jul-25-16 M Khachiyan vs Robson, 2006 (replies)
patzer2: For a White improvement, instead of 12. e5, I like 12. exd5 as in Karjakin vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2015 .
   Jul-23-16 Carlsen vs A Giri, 2016 (replies)
patzer2: <Eyal><Giri finally cracked under the pressure with 37...Ra8??, a rather natural time-trouble blunder (instinctively one wants to bring the rook back to the defense of the king).> Good assessment. Instead of 37...Ra8?? the computer pick 37...f4 38. Nf5 Qb6+ 39. Bd4 Qa5 ...
   Jul-20-16 J Platz vs W Adams, 1948
patzer2: White missed the win 31. Bxg7! Qxa2 32. Rc1 Kd6 33. Rd1+ Kc7 34. Qd4 Qe6 35. Nb4 Kc8 36. Qc3+ Kb7 37. Qf3+ Qe4 38. Rxd7+ Kc8 39. Rxf7 Qxf3 40. gxf3 (+1.60 @ 23 depth, Deep Fritz 15).
   Jul-04-16 Berk Olcum vs T Tsereteli, 2009 (replies)
patzer2: For a White improvement, 13. Nh2 = as in A Orlov vs G Meins, 2012 looks better than chasing a Queenside pawn with 13. Qe3?!
   Jun-23-16 K Ulanowski vs E Kustal, 2009 (replies)
patzer2: In addition to 27. Nf6+ and 27. Nc3 , another winning alternative is 27. Nc7 (diagram below) [DIAGRAM] when Black can complicate things with 27...Bh3 (diagram below). ...
