Member since May-20-03 · Last seen May-01-16
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: The computers indicate 11...Kd6? allowing 12. d4! (+2.96 @ 29 depth, Komodo 9.1) was the decisive mistake. Instead, the silicon monsters suggest Black holds with advantage after 11...Qh4! 12. N6+ Ke7 Nxc8 13. Rxc8 14. d3 Kd8

   Apr-18-16 E J Diemer vs R Sutterer, 1949 (replies)
patzer2: For this Monday puzzle, the Queen sacrifices herself with 42. Qb4+ so a lowly pawn can administer mate after 42...Bxb4 43. cxb4#. Black's decisive mistake was 40...Ka5??, allowing 43. Qc4 with mate-in-three. Instead, 40...Rc7

patzer2: Here's some analysis of 13. Nxf7!! with Deep Fritz 15 and other cloud based programs: <13. Nxf7!!> I'm sure this is the demolition combination wanted us to analyze for today's Sunday puzzle. The earlier 12. Nxe5 was no doubt thrown in just to make the winning ...
