Member since May-20-03 · Last seen Sep-20-17
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.

   Sep-20-17 A Muzychuk vs S Brunello, 2014 (replies)
patzer2: <Richard Taylor: <FSR: I saw 29.Nc6 Qe8 30.Qh3+, but didn't see what to do after 30...Be6. The answer, I now see, is 31.Rd8+!! What a shot!> Yes! I didn't even see the intervention on e6 and assumed it was mate next move.> I didn't anticipate 29...Qe8, but following ...
   Sep-19-17 W So vs Ding Liren, 2017 (replies)
patzer2: Here's another look at the missed win with 41. Rxb3! using Stockfish 8: 41.Rxb3 axb3 42.gxf6 Rh2+ 43.Kc3 gxf6 44.Rg8+ Kd7 45.Nb4 Ke7 46.Rc8 Kd7 47.Rb8 Ke7 48.Nc6+ Kd7 49.Nxa5 bxa5 50.Ra8 Rh1 51.Rxa5 Rd1 52.Ra8 Rf1 53.Kxb3 Rc1 54.Rf8 Ke7 55.Rg8 Kd7 56.Rh8 Ke7 57.Rh6 Rf1 58.Kc2 Rf2+ ...
   Sep-19-17 Van Wely vs D Garcia Ilundain, 1993
patzer2: White missed a win by snatching a pawn too quickly with 28. Qxf7+? Kh8 ⩲ to ± (+0.63 @ 34 depth, Stockfish 8.) Instead, 28. Rf1! +- (+3.81 @ 27 depth, Stockfish 8) is winning easily for White.

patzer2: Another excellent game by GM David Illundain was his Benko Gambit win as Black in Van Wely vs D Garcia Ilundain, 1993 .
   Sep-19-17 Aronian vs Ivanchuk, 2017
patzer2: <Chesshighercat> <totally pathetic> No I never said you advocated using game analysis alone to determine cheating. I simply summarized your position in your own words as a <system of analysis and investigation,> and after your reply I acknowledged that you meant ...
   Sep-18-17 V P Normantas vs V Vepkhvishvili, 1987 (replies)
patzer2: While 17...Nh6 ⩱ holds for black, the alternative 17...Nf6?? (diagram below) [DIAGRAM] loses decisive material after 18. Rxf6! gxf6 19. Qh5 f5 20. Qg5+ Kh8 21. Qf6+ Kg8 22. Re1 Be6 23. Re3 Qd6 24. Qg5+ Kh8 25. Rg3 Qxg3 26. Qxg3 +- (+6.64 @ 29 depth, Stockfish 8.)
   Sep-17-17 F Zita vs Taimanov, 1950 (replies)
patzer2: For a White improvement, instead of the natural looking 18. Bg2? allowing 18...Ng4! ∓ (-0.90 @ 32 depth,) Stockfish 8 recommends the odd looking 18. Kg2! = to ⩲ (+0.23 @ 32 depth.)
   Sep-16-17 A Montalvo vs Blatny, 1997 (replies)
patzer2: For today's Saturday puzzle, I got as far as 19...Rc2 20. Bxd7+ Kd8 (not 20...Kxd7?? 21. Qxc2 +-,) and after 21. Qa3 (diagram below) [DIAGRAM] I didn't see anything wrong there (diagram above) with 21...Kxd7 -+ (-3.62 @ 32 depth, Stockfish 8.) Apparently, there's absolutely nothing ...
   Sep-15-17 NN vs R Crepeaux, 1923 (replies)
patzer2: White's decisive mistake is 11. Nxd5?, which gives Black the win with 11...Ng5 (mate-in-five,) 11...Qxh2+! (mate-in-seven or 11...Nxf3+ -+ (-6.30 @ 33 depth, Stockfish 8.) Instead, White can win a pawn and secure the advantage with a simple double attack (Rook Fork) 11. Bxe4 dxe4 ...
   Sep-14-17 Tal vs F Olafsson, 1975 (replies)
patzer2: The losing move appears to be 20. Rxc7? allowing 20...Rad8 ∓ to -+ (-1.96 @ 31 depth, Stockfish 8.) Instead 20. Rc4 Qb4 21. R1c4 Bxf3 22. Nxf3 Qb1+ 23. Qf1 Qxa2 ∓ (-0.48 @ 30 depth) gives White a fighting chance.
