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: Went for the game moves 20...Qg3 21. Nh3 Be5 simply because I could find nothing better. In the final position, White has nothing better than surrendering the Queen with 22. Qxe5 Qxe5 .

patzer2: <kbob> <What would be wrong with 16. Bxe4 , dxe4; 17. f4, exf3; 18. Rxf3...?.> Here, 18...Nxf3+ (diagram below) wins [DIAGRAM] as White is in check and 19. gxf3 Qg5+ is clearly decisive.
   Aug-15-14 FIBChess vs Falcon, 2004 (replies)
patzer2: If 20. Qd2, then 20...Rh4! wins as play might continue 21. Qe1 (21. Qf2 Qh2#) 21... Qh2+ 22. Kf2 Rh6 23. Qh1 Rf6+ 24. Ke1 Qg3+ 25. Kd2 d4 26. c4 Rf2+ 27. Kd3 Rd8 28. Ke4 Qg6+ 29. Ke5 Qe6#. In the final position, the threat ...Qg3+ followed by ....Qxg2# forces resignation.
   Aug-14-14 Nakamura vs M Waxman, 1999 (replies)
patzer2: Nakamura's sham Queen sacrifice 26. Qh5+!! initiates a brilliant combination to solve today's Thursday puzzle. However, it's only one of many winning moves. Like <meetvirgo>'s Houdini, Fritz 12 program evaluates 26. e5! best, but at 17/46 depth on a 2.1 GHZ dual core processor
   Aug-12-14 K Gulamali vs M Sana, 2014 (replies)
patzer2: Also in response to 28...Nf4!, if White tries 29. Bxb2 then play might continue 29...Qxg5+ 30. Kf2 Nxh3+ 31. Ke2 Qb5+ 32. Ke3 Qxb2 33. Rab1 Qa3+ 34. Rb3 Bxb3 35. axb3 Bf4+ 36. Ke2 Qb2+ 37. Kd3 Qxb3+ 38. Ke2 (diagram below) [DIAGRAM] From here it's mate-in-three with 38...Qa2+! 39. ...
   Aug-11-14 D Maric vs J Schmehl, 2004
patzer2: <dufferps> If <25. ... Rh8>, then 26. Qe4 .

patzer2: <catlover> Your welcome! My thanks to <FSR> for doing the research and writing the wiki article about Gossip at .
   Aug-09-14 Anand vs Timman, 2004 (replies)
patzer2: If 27... Qd8, then it's mate-in-two with 28. Qh6+ Kg8 29. Ne7#.
   Aug-07-14 N Pegoraro vs P Trotto, 2004 (replies)
patzer2: <Boerboel Guy> Sorry about the echo! It's purely coincidental. I didn't see your post before I finished mine.
   Aug-02-14 Krasenkow vs S Kindermann, 2001 (replies)
patzer2: More a game to enjoy than a puzzle to solve on this Saturday morning! Here's my look with Fritz 12, beginning with White's 10th: <10. f3!> This maneuver is where White, with some help from Black, begins to secure a winning advantage. <10...exf3?> This loses. Better was ...
