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.

   Sep-04-15 L Johansson vs B Bok, 2015
patzer2: White sac'd the piece with 15. g3??, but it's hard to tell whether it was an oversight or on purpose. Either way, he's busted as the Bishop is trapped after 15...f3 (-2.24 @ 21 depth, Deep Fritz 14). Instead, 15. a4
   Sep-04-15 J Duda vs M Iskandarov, 2015
patzer2: <leow> Black can maximize resistance with 64...Qg5 but White still wins after 65.Rc5 Qg3+ 66.Kg1 h4 67.Rh5+ Kg7 68.Rf5 Kh7 69.Rxf4 Rg7 70. e5 (+2.57 @ 22 depth, Deep Fritz 14).

patzer2: If 30...Qxb5, then strongest is <dfcx>'s 31. a7! when play might continue 31... Qb2 32. axb8=Q+ Bxb8 33. Rd1 Kg7 34. Qxd5 (+2.41 @ 27 depth, Deep Fritz 14). Second best and weaker is 30...Qxb5 31. Qxb5!? Rxb5 32. a7 Ra5

patzer2: <lost in space> Thanks for the correction. I did mean 3. Nf3 instead of 3. Nge2. After reading through your post, I now think 3. Nge2 might be just as good as 3. Nf3. It's (i.e. 3. Nge2) quite playable, and as you say after the 5. d4 cxd4 6. Nxd4 exchange it doesn't make any ...

patzer2: The prompt of a daily puzzle made today's Wednesday solution 58. Rxf6+! Kxf6 59. Qb6+ Qxb6 with stalemate easy for me. Where might Black improve? Well for one, instead of 51...f5 =, Black can secure a strong advantage with 51...Kg8!
   Sep-01-15 A Kuzmin vs Vasiukov, 1982 (replies)
patzer2: <jdc2> You might want to verify your position set-up for 26...Bc7+.
   Aug-31-15 H Klip vs C Janssen, 1982 (replies)
patzer2: Pretty obvious Monday solution with 28. Qxh7+ initiating mate-in-two. For an improvement for Black, I'd start with the opening and avoid the novel 6...Na6?! and instead opt for the solid 6...Nc6 as in V Sanal vs Dvoirys, 2015 . Later in the opening phase, 13...bxc5 = improves over ...
   Aug-31-15 V Bogdanovski vs M Golubev, 1991 (replies)
patzer2: <farshids> I think you mean why not 22. Nxa8 instead of 22. Nxc8. White probably avoided 22. Nxa8 because he feared the complications of the strong Black counter attack after 22. Nxa8 g3, where Black's Bishop on c8 is more useful than the Rook on a8. Deep Fritz 14 gives 23. ...

patzer2: <MissScarlett> My hardware is an i7-4790 3.6 GHZ quad core processor with 16 Gb of 1600 MHZ RAM and a 1 GB 7200 RPM hard drive. The software is Deep Fritz 14x64.
   Aug-30-15 Carlsen vs Grischuk, 2015 (replies)
patzer2: Instead of 32. g4?! Bd4 , Fritz indicates 32. Rfd1 = holds the position level.
