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: <lost in space> Thanks for the correction. I did mean 3. Nf3 instead of 3. Nge2. After reading through your post, I now think 3. Nge2 might be just as good as 3. Nf3. It's (i.e. 3. Nge2) quite playable, and as you say after the 5. d4 cxd4 6. Nxd4 exchange it doesn't make any ...

patzer2: The prompt of a daily puzzle made today's Wednesday solution 58. Rxf6+! Kxf6 59. Qb6+ Qxb6 with stalemate easy for me. Where might Black improve? Well for one, instead of 51...f5 =, Black can secure a strong advantage with 51...Kg8!

patzer2: <jdc2> You might want to verify your position set-up for 26...Bc7+.
   Aug-31-15 H Klip vs C Janssen, 1982 (replies)
patzer2: Pretty obvious Monday solution with 28. Qxh7+ initiating mate-in-two. For an improvement for Black, I'd start with the opening and avoid the novel 6...Na6?! and instead opt for the solid 6...Nc6 as in V Sanal vs Dvoirys, 2015 . Later in the opening phase, 13...bxc5 = improves over ...
   Aug-31-15 V Bogdanovski vs M Golubev, 1991 (replies)
patzer2: <farshids> I think you mean why not 22. Nxa8 instead of 22. Nxc8. White probably avoided 22. Nxa8 because he feared the complications of the strong Black counter attack after 22. Nxa8 g3, where Black's Bishop on c8 is more useful than the Rook on a8. Deep Fritz 14 gives 23. ...

patzer2: <MissScarlett> My hardware is an i7-4790 3.6 GHZ quad core processor with 16 Gb of 1600 MHZ RAM and a 1 GB 7200 RPM hard drive. The software is Deep Fritz 14x64.

patzer2: Instead of 32. g4?! Bd4 , Fritz indicates 32. Rfd1 = holds the position level.
   Aug-29-15 T Stanciu vs A Maciejewski, 1974 (replies)
patzer2: < agb2002> <C) 22... Qe8 23.Rxd7 followed by 24.Bxe6+ wins decisive material.> Surely you mean 22...Qe8 23. Rf1+ followed by 24. Bxe6+ wins decisive material. One possibility is 23... Qe8 24. Rf1+ Kg8 25. Bxe6+ Rf7 (25... Qxe6 26. Qxe6+ Kh8 27. Rf3
   Aug-28-15 M Kremer vs L Schandorff, 1982 (replies)
patzer2: The clearance move 23. Bxe7! forces 23...Rxe7 which allows 24. Rxg7+! with a mating attack to solve today's Friday puzzle. Black's decisive error is 22...Rc5?? Instead, 22...Qc5 23. Bxe7 Rxe7 24. Nb3
   Aug-27-15 W So vs Aronian, 2015 (replies)
patzer2: In the final position if 29. Bxf5, then 29...d3! 30. Qe1 Rc2 wins easily.
