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.

   Dec-01-15 Smyslov vs J P Dominguez Sanz, 1972 (replies)
patzer2: Smyslov's central control and space advantage is so dominant after 23. Qg4! to he can play the King side attack at a leisurely pace, as his Knight casually strolls from
   Nov-30-15 C Storey vs J Jarmany, 2014 (replies)
patzer2: I suspect 4...a6? is one novelty not likely to be repeated any time soon at Master level.
   Nov-27-15 R Svane vs F Zeller, 2014 (replies)
patzer2: Didn't even consider 27...e5! for my Black Friday solution, but after seeing it played it out in the game it's an obvious three-step solution: (1) 27...e5! attacks the pinned Rook. (2) 28. fxe5 fxe5 repeats the attack on the pinned Rook, clears the f-file and forces the deflection ...
   Nov-25-15 F Berend vs S Coffey, 1982 (replies)
patzer2: White's decisive mistake is the not-so-safe 17. Be2??
   Nov-17-15 R Rapport vs P Idani, 2014 (replies)
patzer2: Because Tuesday puzzles are typically easy, I figured the Queen sacrifice 42. Qxf6+! was a good candidate. Sure enough, 42. Qxf6+! wins due to the threat of 42. Kxf6 Ne8# with a double discovered check and mate. Black's game slides down hill after the awkward Knight retreat ...
   Nov-16-15 O Aharon vs Z Rahman, 2014 (replies)
patzer2: The winning tactical threat in this game is 38...Re5! which sets up today's Monday mate-in-two puzzle solution. After 38...Re5!, White has nothing better than 39. Bc4+ Kh8 40. b4 Nxc4 (-6.25 @ 22 depth, Deep Fritz 14). ...
   Nov-16-15 W Przybylski vs Shirov, 2015
patzer2: Black was OK until 30...Kh8?? allowing 31. Qf4 . Instead, 30...Re8 = holds.
   Nov-15-15 Schmittdiel vs I Rogers, 1991
patzer2: White's entire plan with 12. Qe2?! and thereafter is flawed, as Black can play 12...Bxc2 and safely snatch the pawn with advantage. Instead, White can keep it level with 12. Bb3 =. White's attempt to win back the sacrificed piece by pinning and winning the Bishop on e7 is thwarted ...
   Nov-15-15 Chandler vs I Rogers, 1984 (replies)
patzer2: For today's Sunday puzzle, 16. Rxb1!! leads to a surprise attack which forces Black to succumb to a decisive attack on his King in order to save his Queen. For an improvement for Black, instead of <10...Qxf6?!>, I'd start with Ian Roger's refinement 10... gxf6 in his win in ...
   Nov-14-15 Parma vs M Damjanovic, 1960 (replies)
patzer2: I found this Saturday puzzle, with the 23...Rxg2! demolition forcing mate-in-five, much easier than yesterday's Friday puzzle. For a White improvement, instead of <19. Rfe1 Qd6 =>, 19. Rfd1 Qxf7 20. Bxf7 e4 21. Re1 Rd6 22. Re2 Rh7 23. Be6 Rg7 24. c3 Nf3+ 25. Kh1 Nxh2 26. Rxe4 ...
