Member since May-20-03 · Last seen May-21-18
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.

patzer2: White's decisive mistake was 38. Bf8??, allowing today's Monday puzzle solution 38...Qxf2+ 39. Rxf2 Rb1#. Instead, 38. Rxd5 = to ⩱ (-0.37 @ 22 ply, Stockfish 9) would have kept White in the game.

patzer2: Like several others, I went for 42...Qh5 -+ (-2.69 @ 24 ply, Stockfish 9 analysis of move 43.? ) which apparently wins with difficulty. However, 42...Qh5 -+ is not as strong as the game continuation and today's Friday puzzle solution 42...Qa1 -+ (-4.91 @ 23 ply, Stockfish 9 analysis

patzer2: White's decisive mistake was grabbing Black's poisoned pawn with 20. Rxe6?, allowing 20...Nxf2! -+. Instead, 20. Bxh5! ± (+1.11 @ 21 ply, Stockfish 9 analysis of move 20.? ) would have left White with a clear advantage.

patzer2: Couldn't find anything obvious to solve this Wednesday puzzle. However, if it were a real game I figured I'd play 31. e6 because it creates a lot of difficult threats for Black. I had no ide3a it forced a quick mate. Lucky guess on my part.

patzer2: According to the computer, White's decisive mistake was 24...f6?, allowing 24. axb3 +- (+3.20 @ 20 ply, Stockfish 9). Instead, 24...Rxb3 = (0.00 @ 23 ply, Stockfish 9) holds it level.

patzer2: Black's decisive error was playing it too "safe" with 28...Bg7?, which allows our Monday puzzle solution 29. Nxg6+ +-. Instead, 28...g5! ⩱ (-0.25 @ 25 ply, Stockfish 9 analysis of move 28...? ) would have given Black a good game.

patzer2: Though both 29. d6! +- and 29. Rxg6+ +- win easily, the computer indicates 29. d6! (Stockfish 9 analysis of move 29.? ) is stronger. If nothing else, it's an instructive in-between (a.k.a. zwischenzug or intermezzo) move.
 
   May-04-18 G Guseinov vs M Ezat, 2008
 
patzer2: Black's troubles started in the opening with 9...Nd7?, allowing 10. Ng5! ± to +- (+1.72 @ 20 ply, Stockfish 9 analysis of move 10.? ). Necessary instead was 9...Bxe4 = to ⩲ (+0.30 @ 20 ply, Stockfish 9 analysis of move 9...? ).

patzer2: In addition to 34...g3!, the other surprise pawn move I enjoyed after 15. c5 (diagram below) [DIAGRAM] was 15...exf3! ⩱ to ∓ (-0.62 @ 32 ply, Stockfish 9 analysis of move 15...? ). It (i.e. 15...exf3!) is a cool move under fire which gives Black the advantage and the ...

patzer2: White's decisive mistake was 31. Qxe4?, allowing 31...Qxf2 32. Qxg6 Qxg1+ -+ (-6.22 @ 32 ply, Stockfish 9 analysis of move 31...? ) which begins the three-move back rank mate solving today's Monday (32...?) puzzle. Necessary instead was 31. Bg3 = to ⩱ (-0.22 @ 32 ply, ...
