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: <HMM> Due to the strong improving economy, employment in the Seattle food service industry has actually increased since the announcement of the minimum wage hike in April 2015 according to a Jan 7, 2017 Forbes report at . However, the ...

patzer2: For today's solution, I figured 25. Qxf1 to is probably too easy for a Friday puzzle, so it must involve getting the White Queen to h5 for an attack on the exposed ...

patzer2: My attempt at today's Thursday puzzle (27...?) is a second best attempt with 27...Bf3 which according to the computer wins after 27...Bf3 28. Qb1 If 28. Bf1, then 28...Be4 29. Qd1 Nf3+ 30. Kh1 (30. Kg2 Nxd2+ ) 30... Bxg3 31. ...
   Feb-15-17 N Pert vs F Dinger, 2007 (replies)
patzer2: Found 49. Qg7+! for my Wednesday puzzle solution because I couldn't make 49. Qh7+ work. Indeed, 49. Qh7+?, which is the second best move, actually loses after 49. Qh7+ Kf8 50. Qxc7 Nxc7 (-2.70 @ 21 depth, Deep Fritz 15.) ...

patzer2: For our Tuesday puzzle (31. ?), Black is threatening mate. Thus, a move that combines defense and offense is necessary. After a quick look, it was obvious 31. Rg8+ Rxg8 32. Bc3+! (#9, Deep Fritz 15) yielding a discovered ...

patzer2: For a Black improvement, I'd replace the awkward 14...Bc6?! which allows 15. a3 (+0.48 @ 20 depth, Deep Fritz 15.) Instead, I prefer 14...a6 when play might continue 15. a3 Nc6 16. Qc2 h6 = (0.17 @ 20 depth, Deep Fritz 15). ...

patzer2: Here's my look at today's 19. Nf5! solution with Deep Fritz 15: <19. Nf5!! exf5> White offers a positional sacrifice of the Knight to generate attacking chances against Black's King. With perfect defense by Black, White gets a slight edge. With any misstep, Black gets crushed.

patzer2: Easily found 23. Nf5! for today's Friday solution. Here's some analysis with Deep Fritz 15: <23. Nf5 Qc5> If 23... gxf5, then White wins after 24. Bxf5 f6 25. Bxe6+ Kh8 (25... Rf7 26. Bxc8 ) 26. Rd7
