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: <Morf><Once> Very instructive exchange on the merit of 20...h6 instead of 20...Rxf1?? 21. Rxf1 . As <Once> observes, 20...h6 21. Rf7 Rxf7 22. gxf7 Rf8 23. Rf1 Kh7!

patzer2: Here's a look at a key turning point in the game (7...?) and today's Sunday puzzle position (8.?) with Fritz: <7...Bg7?> The decisive mistake. Instead, 7...Nf6 keeps Black in the game as play might continue 8. Nc3 Bg7 9. Qd2 e6 10. O-O-O O-O 11. Bd3 Bd7 12. Ng5
   May-02-15 Oll vs Shaked, 1997 (replies)
patzer2: Got the first three moves of today's Saturday combination with <32. Rxf6 Rxf6!! 33. Qd8 Qe8 34. Bg8+ Kh8>, but missed the critical fourth move <35. Bxe5!> threatening mate or decisive win of material. Running it through Fritz, the computer evaluations indicate all of the
   Apr-28-15 Gao Rui vs V C Shen, 2015 (replies)
patzer2: The long, tought struggle in this Ruy Lopez game is as interesting to me as the neat mating attack with <64. Qh6+!> which solves today's Tuesday puzzle. Black endures the Spanish torture of the Ruy Lopez for over 50 moves, before succumbing with the decisive error ...
   Apr-27-15 Dzindzichashvili vs Broncept, 1995 (replies)
patzer2: Black was busted even without <27...Rf5?>, allowing the two-move mate <31. Rxh6+ Bxgh6 32. Qg8#> which solves today's easy Monday puzzle. Black's game started to seriously decline after <11...Nh5>. Instead, Deep Fritz 14 indicates Black could have practically ...
   Apr-27-15 S P Sethuraman vs Y Yu, 2014
patzer2: Here's a look at yesterday's Sunday solution with Deep Fritz 14: <23...e4!!> This solves the Sunday puzzle with a deflection that enables Black to safely sacrifice a Knight for two pawns and then win a piece back with a won position. The immediate 23...Nxg3? only leads to ...
   Apr-26-15 Negi vs G Munkhgal, 2014
patzer2: In response to White's Kingside attack with 22. h6, Black's decisive mistake may have been the natural defensive move <22...g6?>. Instead, Deep Fritz 14 indicates black can hold with 22... Rac8! 23. hxg7 Kxg7 24. Rh3 Rc5 25. Qb3 Qxb3 26. Rxb3
   Apr-24-15 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2008 (replies)
patzer2: For my Friday solution, I visualized 27. Rxb4!! axb4 (27... exd4 28. Rbxd4 ) 28. Bc5+ Ke6 (diagram below) [DIAGRAM] However, I missed the surprise crushing follow-up 29. Ra1! Rd6 (not 29... b3 30. Ra6+ Kd7 31. Qc6#) 30. Bxd6 ...
   Apr-24-15 Carlsen vs Kramnik, 2015 (replies)
patzer2: Stockfish computer evaluation at the official site shows White winning after 29...Qxc6? (29...Qd7 23. Nb4 was better) 30. Bxd5 (+2.53 @ 25 depth). Win doesn't look easy
   Apr-23-15 R Altshuler vs K Messere, 1965 (replies)
patzer2: Correction: Instead of <13...Nxb3 14. Nxb3 >, 13...0-0 = gives Black a level game.
