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: Here's my look at the game and Friday puzzle (24. ?) with Deep Fritz 14 and the opening explorer (OE). <1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Ba4 Nf6 5. O-O Be7 6. Re1 b5 7. Bb3 d6 8. c3 O-O 9. d4 Bg4> The game enters a well trodden version of the Ruy Lopez. It's so ...

patzer2: Here's a look at the game and the Thursday puzzle (31. ?) with the Opening Explorer (OE) and Deep Fritz 14: <1. e4 d6 2. d4 Nf6 3. Nc3 g6 4. g3> More popular here against the Pirc are 4.Nf3, 4. f4 and 4. Be3. However, this quiet approach with 4. g3 can give ...
   Jul-01-15 I Nyzhnyk vs R Pruijssers, 2011 (replies)
patzer2: My pick was 29. Bxf6 for today's Wednesday puzzle. It wins, but isn't as clearly decisive as 29. Nxf6+! . Deep Fritz 14 assesses 29. Nxf6+
   Jun-30-15 D M Adams vs M Lyell, 2007 (replies)
patzer2: If 24...Bf4, then 25. Kg1 slows it to mate-in-four after 25...Qh4 26. Be2 Bh2+ 27. Kh1 Bg3+ 28. Kg1 Qh2#.
   Jun-29-15 L Lejarre vs B Burg, 2011 (replies)
patzer2: Perhaps the most instructive move in the game for novices is 18. g4! . This surprise move uses a pawn protecting the white King to initiate a decisive attack on the weaker Black king position. This move (18. g4!) does not ...
   Jun-28-15 J L Hammer vs Carlsen, 2015 (replies)
patzer2: In a very difficult OTB position, instead of <23...Bxd5> perhaps Black could have held with 23... h6 when play might go 24. Bxg7+ Kh7 25. Rc3 Bxd5 26. Rh3 Nh4 27. Bxh6 Be6 28. Bf4 Bxf5 29. Rxh4+ Kg6 30. Rh6+ Kg7 31. Rh5 Be6 32. Nb1 Rf8 33. Rh4 Rf5 34. Nc3 Rc4 35. Kg1 Nc6 = ...
   Jun-28-15 M Krasenkow vs Nakamura, 2007 (replies)
patzer2: <21... Qxf2+!!> This surprise Queen sacrifice, which I missed, begins a decisive King hunt with the minor pieces and solves today's Sunday puzzle. My weak attempt at a Sunday solution was 21... Rxf6?, which misses the win and loses after 22. Rxb6 Rxb6 23. Nxc4 Bxc4 24. Qxd7 ...
   Jun-27-15 Anand vs Bologan, 2000 (replies)
patzer2: Black's decisive mistake appears to be <36...c3?>, allowing 37. Nf6! . Instead, the computer suggestion 36...Nc5! (diagram below) [DIAGRAM] appears to hold after 37. Nf6! Re5 38. g6 fxg6 39. Nxh7 Kxh7 40. Qxf8 Nd3! 41. ...
   Jun-26-15 A Compton vs A Gholami, 2011
patzer2: Here's my look at a few key moves in the game and the Thursday puzzle (18. ?) with the Opening Explorer and Deep Fritz 14: <7...a6> This is the most popular move in the OE. However, for those who like to open things up a bit earlier in the French an option worth
   Jun-25-15 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2015 (replies)
patzer2: Instead of <36...Qa1?? 37. g4! >, both 36...Qb8! and 36...Qb4!= are better options for Black: 36... Qb8 37. g3 [Not 37. g4?? Ng6 38. gxf5 exf5 39. Qc4 (39. Qxf5 ...
