Member since May-20-03 · Last seen Dec-21-14
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.

   Dec-20-14 Z Rahman vs Yudasin, 2004
patzer2: <Once> Nice piece of analysis, showing a slight advantage but no sure win for Black after 28... Qxe1+ 29. Bxe1 Rxe1+ 30. Bf1 Ra8 31. Qf2! . In the final position if 35. Qxf3, then 35...Bxf3 walks White into a mate after ...
   Dec-17-14 J Hvenekilde vs H Lahlum, 2006
patzer2: Strange finish to this game. Black is in control up until 26...c3? (26...Ra2 to would've kept up the pressure) when 27. Bxa8 cxb2 28. Be4
   Dec-17-14 Jobava vs G Arzumanian, 1999 (replies)
patzer2: Maybe 7...b5 isn't so bad. After 8. 0-0 Qb6 (instead of 8...a6?) the Black position is playable. In the only game with this line in the OE, Black managed a draw in the game J Hvenekilde vs H Lahlum, 2006 . .
   Dec-16-14 T Farley vs W Teerapabpaisit, 2004 (replies)
patzer2: If 28...Re8, then White wins after 29. Ne6! Qd7 30. Nexg7 .
   Dec-16-14 D Graham vs Y Zhou, 2014
patzer2: Perhaps 45...f4! would make for a good Saturday or Sunday puzzle. It appears to force a deep won endgame.
   Dec-16-14 M C Pit-Rada vs R Skytte, 2014
patzer2: Maybe 30...Rxg2! would make for a good Tuesday or Wednesday puzzle.
   Dec-15-14 P Vavra vs V Slezka, 1994 (replies)
patzer2: <I think that explains it a bit better than: "....just over a two pawn advantage." (what ever that means.)> Yes, it does. In this case, your positional judgment means more than computer analysis. Specifically, the Fritz line suffers from the horizon effect. After <29.Rb3 ...
   Dec-14-14 M Apicella vs Lautier, 2001 (replies)
patzer2: Correction to my first post here today: For today's Sunday puzzle got as far as 33...Qxg3+ 34. Kxg3 Bf4+ 35. Kf3 Bd5+ 36. Kg4 h4+ 37. Kh4 (diagram in my first post above), but missed seeing the winning follow-up 37...Bf7! .
   Dec-13-14 E J Diemer vs K Locher, 1948 (replies)
patzer2: <Dezaxa> <15... Bxa3 may be a little better than Kg7, but I suspect not much...Black must have gone astray much earlier.> I now agree 15...Bxa3 is refuted by 16. Nce4! to
   Dec-12-14 Hort vs Chandler, 1982 (replies)
patzer2: Running it through Fritz 12 proves this Friday combination more complicated than the game continuation: <23. Rxe4!!> A brilliant move only if White saw it earlier. If 22...Ne5 caught White by surprise, then it's practically a forced desperado. Nothing else gives White any ...
