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: Here's my look at the game and the Monday puzzle (28.?) with the opening explorer (OE) and Fritz 12: <4...g6> This is the second most frequently played choice in the OE, but a good alternative is the slightly more popular 4...e5 as in Anand vs Aronian, 2014 <7...h5> This

patzer2: <SimplicityRichard> I agree 13...c5 looks like an improvement. However,instead of the software line 14.Nb3 Nd7 15.Be3 Qb6 16.f3 = (diagram below), [DIAGRAM] Maybe White can improve slightly with the natural human move 16. f4

patzer2: <Once: Hmm ... another odd one. I got to Ne6 pretty quickly, but then I wanted to play Nxf8 winning the exchange. After 5 mins on my chugging laptop Fritzie is telling me that 24.Nxf8 is about half a prawn stronger than 24.Nc5. It's currently at +2.69 for Madonna's material girl ...
   Feb-28-15 Navara vs M Parligras, 2015
patzer2: The demolition 16. Bxg6!! is Sunday level puzzle material!
   Feb-26-15 Gunsberg vs E Thorold, 1885
patzer2: <20... cxd4?> This allows White's brilliant winning combination. Putting up more resistance is 20... Nf5 21. g4! to . <21. Bxg6!!> This surprise demolition ...
   Feb-25-15 F Bohatirchuk vs Nenarokov, 1924 (replies)
patzer2: <BOSTER> Good catch on 31. Rc5! as a winning alternative to the game move 31. Rc3! . Also scoring the full point here is 31. Nf6+!
   Feb-24-15 Washburn vs Lasker, 1907 (replies)
patzer2: <TheTamale: Lasker sure teaches this amateur a thing or two. This is like watching a UFC fighter take on a karate white belt... just a one-sided drubbing from move 1.> Lasker wasn't just thrashing amateurs during his 1907 US tour. Lasker completely dominated the US Champion ...
   Feb-23-15 P Cervenka vs J Pesola, 2005 (replies)
patzer2: <ozu> Even Karpov didn't solve the whole thing, since in yesterday's Sunday puzzle game at Ljubojevic vs Karpov, 1993 he played 34...Re2? = to and missed the winning move 34...Bxg2!
   Feb-22-15 W So vs Baburin, 2015
patzer2: Bit of an unusual final position after 40. Rce1! . White will at his leisure stop the passed pawn, move the Knight to g5, threaten a Rook or Queen to the back rank, and advance the h-pawn with check to create mate threats. ...
   Feb-22-15 Stockfish vs Komodo, 2014
patzer2: Apparently the computer programs are sure White gets sufficient compensation for the weak isolated pawns in this opening line.
