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.

   Nov-27-14 G Thallinger vs M Schlosser, 1995
patzer2: White wins the positional maneuvering game in the opening, and then he takes the middle game by storm with a quick mating attack. After 24...Rxg2!, which was yesterday's Wednesday puzzle solution, Black has mate-in-three following 25. Kxg2 Qd5+.
   Nov-25-14 Robson vs R Prasanna, 2004
patzer2: Amazing play by then 9-year-old Ray Robson. Following 12...Rfc8?! (12...h5 = to ) 13. g4! , White's in complete control with an attack worthy of a seasoned GM. After 18. ...
   Nov-24-14 H Pohlenz vs M Pinel, 1994 (replies)
patzer2: <Boster> Thanks! No offense taken. When I was an active player, I was known for always trying for the objective but elusive "best move." So I understand where you are coming from in the discussion about less than the best move "swindle" attempts. By the way I like your 14. ...
   Nov-23-14 Timman vs Salov, 1991 (replies)
patzer2: The difficulty in this Sunday puzzle is not so much in finding the initial move 47...Ba4! After all, it's the only way for Black to make any progress, or counter the threat of 48. h5. The real difficulty in the position is finding the best follow-up moves after the strongest line of
   Nov-21-14 M Gluzman vs Bareev, 2001 (replies)
patzer2: Thought I did well in finding 26...Re4! for today's Friday puzzle solution, especially since I forgot I had seen it 10 years ago. I visualized the combination to the game's end, but did not see all the way through to mate after 26...Re4 27. Nxe4 Nxe4 28. Qe1 (diagram below) ...
   Nov-20-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
patzer2: <Sally Simpson> Surely you jest! After 17. Rf1?? Kxg5 18. Ne6+ (diagram below) [DIAGRAM] Black is not forced to play into 18...Kh4?? 19. Bg5#. Instead, simply 18...Kf6 wins easy for Black.
   Nov-20-14 A E Post vs Spielmann, 1907 (replies)
patzer2: The losing moves in the game were 29. Nf3? and 30. Nd4?? Instead White could have played 29. a4 = equalizing, or, failing that, 30. Qxc4 Rxf3 to putting up more ...
   Nov-19-14 Zsuzsa Polgar vs V Dimitrov, 1984 (replies)
patzer2: Should Black not resign and instead continue with 23...Kd8, White has the pleasant choice between 24. Rd1 winning the Queen with a Rook skewer or 24. Nf7+ followed by 25. Bxd4 winning the Queen via a discovered attack with ...
   Nov-19-14 S Kun vs G Merenyi, 1997 (replies)
patzer2: <MostlyWatch> Good economic analysis! You explain how long term supply in a free competitive market adjusts to reduce temporary price increases as well as I've seen it done. Trust we didn't get too far off topic in turning a Tuesday chess puzzle into a discussion of ...
   Nov-17-14 L Ogaard vs J D Tisdall, 1987 (replies)
patzer2: The main point of 32...Nxd5!! 33. exd5 Rc8! is that the threats 34. Re2! or 34. Rc2! give Black a clearly decisive advantage.
