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.

   Oct-02-15 Judit Polgar vs Bareev, 2007 (replies)
patzer2: <whiteshark> My failed Friday solution was also 25. Rb1??, seeing essentially the same mirage of mate you envisioned. However, Fritz quickly busts our bubble with 25...Qxf2+! which allows Black mate-in-six to follow after 26. Kh1 Qh4+ 27. Kg1 Qg3+ 28. Kh1 Rf2 27. Kg1 Qg3+ 28. ...

patzer2: <saturn2> Thanks! This week has been flying by for me, but I certainlty didn't need to jump a day ahead.
   Sep-30-15 H Bernink vs H Hoeksema, 1982 (replies)
patzer2: For today's Wednesday puzzle solution, the threat is indeed stronger than the execution with <24. Bf4!>, threatening a decisive double check and mate. Black's made it easy with <23...Nxa2?>, allowing 24. Bf4! Instead, Black can put up more resistance with 23...Nd5 when ...
   Sep-29-15 Falcon vs Shredder, 2004
patzer2: <Al2009> After 24. Bd8 Ng6 25. Bxa5 Nxf4 26. Nxf4 (diagram below) [DIAGRAM] Black has 26...g5 (-5.13 @ 21 depth, Deep Fritz 14) when play might continue 27. Nh5 Kf7 28. Bc7 Rc8 29. Bh2 g4 30. Ng3 Bh6+ 31. Kb2 Bg7+ 32. ...
   Sep-29-15 J B Nielsen vs L B Hansen, 1982 (replies)
patzer2: The decisive mistake appears to be <24...Rh1+?> allowing 25. Ke2 (+3.42 @ 23 depth, Deep Fritz 14). Instead, Black appears to be winning with 24...fxg6! when play might continue 25. Qxg6+ Kf8 26. Ng5 Rh1+ 27. Ke2 Qh5+ ...
   Sep-28-15 S Shankland vs V Pechenkin, 2014 (replies)
patzer2: Wasn't looking to make the Monday puzzle solution longer, but I found the mate-in-three 36. g4+ Kf4 37. Rf6+ gxf6 38. Rxf6# before seeing the mate-in-two 36. Rf6+ gxf6 37. Rxf6#. Instead of <30...h5?!>, Black can improve with 30... Rc8 when play might continue 31. Rxc8 Bxc8 ...
   Sep-26-15 Topalov vs Ivanchuk, 1999 (replies)
patzer2: Here's my look at the game and the Saturday puzzle (18...?) with the Opening Explorer (OE) and Deep Fritz 14: <1. Nf3 c5 2. c4 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 e6 5. g3 Bb4+> Here I like 5... Qb6 = as in Ivanchuk vs Grischuk, 2011 or Karjakin vs Grischuk, 2014 .. <6.
   Sep-26-15 T Engqvist vs T Wedberg, 2001 (replies)
patzer2: Better than <10. Nd5 => is 10. a3! Bxc3 11. Nd6+! Kf8 12. Bxc3 (+0.83 @ 22 depth, Deep Fritz 14).
   Sep-25-15 A Stauskas vs R Zebelis, 2007 (replies)
patzer2: Taking a second look at the Friday puzzle solution (25...?), Fritz indicates White can put up more resistance after 25...Nxf4+ 26. Bxf4 Rxf4 27. Rxf4 Qxf4 28. b5 (diagram below) [DIAGRAM] when play might continue 28...Rxg4+ 29. hxg4 Qxg4+ 30. Kh1 Qh3+ 31. Kg1 Ne5 32. b6 Nc6 33. Qd1 ...
   Sep-24-15 Ivanchuk vs V Pechenkin, 2014 (replies)
patzer2: <20. Re3!> This surprise reply is by far White's strongest. <20...exf5> This allows the strong reply 21. Qxf5! Putting up more resistance is the Fritz suggestion 20... Ne7 when play might continue 21. f6 Nf5 22. Bxf5 exf5 23. b3 Bb5 24. c4 dxc4 25. bxc4 Ba4 26. Nd7 Bxd7 ...
