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.

   Aug-25-16 S Azarov vs Y Kuzubov, 2016
patzer2: Complicated tactical and positional play in this Caro-Kann game. My computer indicates the pawn grab 19. Bxh7+? (-0.93 @ 21 depth, Deep Fritz 15) was a mistake. Instead, the silicon monster shows 19. Ncd2 = (0.17 @ 19 depth, ...
   Aug-25-16 Y Kuzubov vs K Mekhitarian, 2016
patzer2: Active Bishop and King hold active Knight to a draw.
   Aug-25-16 Goglidze vs Botvinnik, 1935 (replies)
patzer2: In a previous post, I mentioned 23. Qd2 is an improvement which would have saved White's game. However, after 23. Qd2 Qc2 (diagram below) the defense is difficult: [DIAGRAM] The only saving move here (diagram above) is 24. Bc1! =. All other possibilies lose. For example, attempting ...
   Aug-24-16 R Antonio vs R Nava, 2012
patzer2: According to Deep Fritz 15, Black missed an opportunity to force a draw by repetion with 17... Qg4 18. Rxd5 Bxd5 19. Bxd5 Rfd8 20. Qc5 Qd7 21. Bb3 Qd3 22. e6 Qb1+ 23. Ke2 Qd3+ 24. Ke1 Qb1+ 25. Ke2 Qd3+ 26.Ke1 Qb1+ 27. Ke2 =.
   Aug-24-16 S Ernst vs J van Foreest, 2016
patzer2: Black appears to be OK up until the pawn grab 33...Qxe5? allowing 34. Rxd7 Nxd7 35. Qxa4 . Instead, 33...Qc3 (-0.72 @ 33 depth, Stockfish 5) holds it together for Black.
   Aug-24-16 M Hejazipour vs M Percivaldi, 2016
patzer2: Black initiates a neat clearance and double attack combination with 24...Bxd2 25. Rxd2 Qf4 to which forces the win of a pawn. Earlier, White could have maintained an ...
   Aug-24-16 Toldsepp vs Keres, 1934
patzer2: Looking for White improvements, I like <mel gibson>'s 7. Nc3 and <Jonathan Sarfati>'s 8. Qd2 . However, neither White's seventh or eighth moves caused the ...
   Aug-24-16 J M Bellon Lopez vs M Grabarczyk, 2001 (replies)
patzer2: The exchange of two Knights for a Pawn and Queen via a Knight fork combination is the result of our Wednesday puzzle solution 44...Nfg4+ . White's game goes down hill after 36. f5?, allowing 36...Bd6
   Aug-23-16 Hakkapeliitta vs Rybka, 2016
patzer2: Seems to me the 2900+ rated White computer wasted too much time in the opening with moves like 9. a3 and 10. h4. Instead, 10. Be2 developing and preparing to castle makes more sense to this human player.
   Aug-23-16 Dreev vs S Danilov, 2016
patzer2: 5...Qe7?? drops a piece for nothing.
