I am longtime clinical social worker, a journalist for a few years, and 2100 player (uscf)when I played in the early to mid-seventies.

   Mar-24-17 I Cheparinov vs Drasko, 2007 (replies)
 
wtpy: Walter, I think if white takes back on c3 with the bishop meettig 25..Be4 with 26 Ba5 he retains some pull in the position.
 
   Mar-22-17 R Polaczek vs A Antoniou, 2007 (replies)
 
wtpy: So what I looked at was 28 f5 Ne5 29fg6 Ng6 30Rf1+ Kg8 31Rd2 and it looks to me like white can double rooks on the f file and break through with decisive effect since black's queenside pieces still have no way to get into the fray.
 
   Mar-21-17 F Berkes vs M Neubauer, 2007 (replies)
 
wtpy: Not so modest. I figure 26..Rd8 is black's best. Then 27 Nd6 and the only way to try to hold d pawn is Qe6, but then Bh5 with the threat of Bf7 wins it anyway, and black can resign with clear conscience.
 
   Mar-20-17 V Samolins vs I Dudukin, 2017
 
wtpy: 13..Qe2 looks better for black. White has to move his knight--Bg5 loses to ef3 and black will have time to castle with a double-edged game.
 
   Mar-18-17 Karpov vs Ponomariov, 2007 (replies)
 
wtpy: Once you see how f6 gums up attack you really don't have a lot of options. I got the moves through 31..Bg3 and concluded Black's attack was irresistible. I guess it is possible I have seen this game before because I solved it pretty quickly.
 
   Mar-10-17 Fischer vs Spassky, 1992 (replies)
 
wtpy: After 40 ..Ba3 41 g5 looks like it wins ad well. 41..Ke6 or Kf7 42 g6 and curtains.
 
   Mar-07-17 M Orndahl vs I Kovalenko, 2017
 
wtpy: Proton, I think you are on to something ...
 
   Mar-03-17 I Cheparinov vs Navara, 2007 (replies)
 
wtpy: This was much easier than yesterday's to me because it is more of a typical pattern. Good find on h4 but even if Qf2 only draws, I think it is still black's best move in position.
 
   Feb-26-17 Shabalov vs Aronian, 2004 (replies)
 
wtpy: These puzzles must be getting easier because I am too old to be getting better.
 
   Feb-23-17 S Franklin vs R Norinkeviciute, 2007 (replies)
 
wtpy: Gofer, I couldn't decide on whether Ne8+ was better than the straight forward Qg6+; both look winning. Perhaps someone with engine will enlighten us.
