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.

patzer2: <Nightsurfer> Your idea <34.Bxg5 hxg5 35.Qxg5 Rd6 36. f6 > wins due to the immediate threat 37. Qg7+! After 35...Rd6 36. f6, Fritz 12 @ 20 depth gives best play as 36...Rd8 37. Qg7+ Qxg7 38. fxg7+ Kh7 39. Nf6+ Kh6 ...

patzer2: <Estrik:...If 20. Kf1, I don't see an immediate win for Black...> Fritz 12 gives 20. Kf1 Qh5! [DIAGRAM] 21.Bb2 Nd2+ 22.Ke1 Nf3+ 23.Kf1 Nce5 24.e4 Nd3 25.Qe3 Nxb2 26.Bf7 Rd6 27.a5 Rf6 28.Bxg6 Rfxg6 (-2.96 @ 20 depth). ...

patzer2: Since it's Monday and we're looking at an easy mate in this game, and the strong moves leading up to it. I thought I'd share a strong move leading to an unusual mate-in-one from some computer analysis of this game. Looking at the try 15...f6 (instead of 15...Nd7), I played Black ...
   Oct-19-14 Nisipeanu vs D Reinderman, 2010 (replies)
patzer2: Had Black seen the Queen trap coming after 29...Qf5 30. Qh6! Nd5 (or almost any other move) 31. g4! , he might have tried 29...Qg8. After 29...Qg8, White wins with 30. Rc1! when play, as verified by Fritz, might continue ...
   Oct-18-14 A Ivanov vs Christiansen, 1996 (replies)
patzer2: For my Saturday solution, got as far as 41. f6! Bxg4 42. Bxd5+ Be6 43. Bxe6+ Kf8 44. fxg7+ Ke7 45. Bf6+ Kxe6 46. g8=Q+ Kd7 47. Qd8+ Kc6 in the game continuation. However, I did not see 48. Qe8+! when Black resigns in lieu of 48...Kb6 (48... Kd5 49. Qb5+ Ke6 50. Re1+ Re2 51. Rxe2+ ...
   Oct-17-14 V Tukmakov vs J Sikora-Lerch, 1977 (replies)
patzer2: Easy enough to see 14. Nxf7! Rxf7 (14...Kxf7 15. Qf3+ ) 15. Qe6 solves this Friday puzzle. The difficulty is in finding the strongest follow-up moves.
   Oct-16-14 Flear vs DeFirmian, 1994
patzer2: The finish per Fritz 12 is 65. Kf2 Qf1+ 66. Kg3 Qg1+ 67. Kh4 (67. Kh3 Bf1+ 68. Kh4 Qg5#; 67. Kf4 Qg5#) 67... Qg5+ 68. Kh3 Bf1+ 69. Kh2 Qg2#.
   Oct-16-14 A Ivanov vs W So, 2014
patzer2: <wwall> Fascinating but extremely complex winning possibility with your find of 53. Nd2! to . Fritz 12 gives 53. Nd2! Nc5 54. gxf4 Kf5 55. fxe5 Kxe5 56. Ke3 Kf5 ...
   Oct-16-14 Kotronias vs J Orso, 1986 (replies)
patzer2: Had difficulty deciding between 24. Rh8+! and 24. Rhxg7! Picked 24. Rhxg7! because it was easier for me to see the mate(s) there. However, there's not much difference between the two choices. According to Fritz, it's mate-in-8 with 24. Rhxg7+! versus mate-in-7 for 24. Rh8+! One ...

patzer2: <Lighthorse: Also, it works changing the order: 42...Qa1+ 43.Kg2 Rxc4 44.bxc4 Rb2> My pick was 42...Qa1+ for this winning skewer to solve today's Wednesday puzzle. Fritz indicates there's hardly any difference, giving a 7 to 8 pawn plus advantage for both 42...Qa1+
