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.

   Mar-17-18 Mamedyarov vs Ivanchuk, 2007 (replies)
patzer2: A Bishop sham sacrifice (i.e. 33. Bf7!!) leading to the win of three pawns and a decisive attack against the Black King wasn't on my radar in attempting to solve today's Saturday puzzle. The pawn fork sham sacrifice (i.e. 37. d7!) follow-up deflects the Knight away from the action, ...
   Mar-17-18 Caruana vs Tomashevsky, 2013
patzer2: <Moszkowski012273: 30...Kf8 would of held out quite a bit longer> Maybe so. However, 30...Kf8 31. Qe4! ± to +- sets a pin that clear favors White.
   Mar-14-18 Di Li vs C Holt, 2018
patzer2: Amusing finale after White tries to avoid a likely losing material exchange with 68. Ba8? Instead, White winds up getting the Bishop trapped after 68...Ba6 -+.
   Mar-14-18 Xiao Zhang vs Hanxue Gao, 2017 (replies)
patzer2: For an off the beaten path try for Black in this opening, the computer move 6...Nh5 = as in Black's win in Di Li vs C Holt, 2018 might be worthy of consideration.
   Mar-14-18 Carlsen vs K Holm, 2018
patzer2: Correction: I went with 30. Qxg6+ Kf8 31. Qh7 +- instead of the game follow-up 30. Nxg6 +-.
   Mar-13-18 O Korneev vs Aronian, 1996
patzer2: Finding the two connected pawns versus Rook endgame in today's Tuesday (52. ?) puzzle was easy with the simplifying 52. Rxh4+ +-. For a possible improvement in this deeply analyzed and well know sicilian dragon opening, I prefer 14...Qc7 as in the drawn game Adams vs Nakamura, ...
   Mar-09-18 Fischer vs S Schweber, 1970 (replies)
patzer2: Instead of putting a dim Knight on the rim with 10...Na5 11. Re1 ±, Black does better with 10...b3 = as per our Stockfish 9 application's analysis of move 10...? .
   Mar-08-18 Neo Zhu vs Shabalov, 2017 (replies)
patzer2: My attempt at today's Thursday (28...?) puzzle was 28...Bh6 -+ which wins after 28...Bh6 29. g3 Rxf2+! -+ (-17.20 @ 22 ply, Stockfish 9). White's decisive mistake was 22. Qd1?, which allows 22...Qf5 -+ (-3.15 @ 34 ply, Stockfish 9). Instead, 22. Nc3 = (0.00 @ 39 ply, Stockfish 9) ...
   Mar-07-18 Sasikiran vs S D Swapnil, 2017 (replies)
patzer2: Got the first two moves of today's Wednesday (38. ?) puzzle with 38. Be5! Kg7 39. Bxf6+ exf6 to +-. However, for my third move I went with 40. Qf5 to +- which is not as strong as the game continuation 40. d6! +-. Black's game takes a turn for the worse with 35...Rh8? allowing ...
   Mar-06-18 L Deelman vs B Bleykmans, 1987
patzer2: Yesterday's Monday puzzle solution was a back rank mate-in-three starting with 37...Qe4+! -+. The decisive mistake was 37. Rxh7?? allowing 37...Qe4+! Instead, 37. gxh7+! +- (+8.17 @ 31 ply, Stockfish 9) is a crushing win for White/
