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.

   Jul-21-14 J Banas vs A Ornstein, 1974 (replies)
patzer2: After 29...Ne3??, White is forked but Black is mated with 30. Rxh7+ Kxh7 31. Qh3+ Bh6 32. Qxh6#.
   Jul-17-14 Wang Yue vs Karjakin, 2013 (replies)
patzer2: Black's final combination with 24...h3+!, with a deflection setting up an exchange of material and a winning Knight fork (i.e. after 26. Rxb2 Ne5+), is very similar to his first combination with the deflection 17...Ng6! leading to an exchange of material and a winning Queen fork.
   Jul-15-14 Chigorin vs Burn, 1905 (replies)
patzer2: Discovered attack with check with 13...Bf2+ solves today's Tuesday puzzle. The unprotected Queen and the possibility of a check clearing the way for her capture makes finding this tactic easy. P.S.: White's previous 13. Qb5?? is obviously a dud, but even without this blunder White's

patzer2: In response to the inviting 27...Rcc6, the reply 28. Nb4?? loses to 28...Rxb4! . Instead, 28. Nc1 appears to hold.
   Jul-06-14 V Ruban vs Judit Polgar, 1993 (replies)
patzer2: On a second look at Judit's suggested 24. fxg4 Rxd2 25. Re2 Rxd1 26. Qxd1 Qxg4 , I think White holds with 27. Rd2 to = (diagram below) [DIAGRAM] Black has the slightly ...
   Jul-06-14 Kasparov vs G Hjorth, 1980
patzer2: <Jimfromprovidence> After 22.e6 Bxe6 (position below), [DIAGRAM] Fritz 12 at 21/49 depth assesses 23. Rh4 at +3.54 and 23. d5 at +2.27: 1. (3.54): 23.Rh4 h6 24.d5 Qd7 25.dxe6 Qxe6 26.Rf2 Kh7 27.Re2 Qb6+ 28.Rd4 a5 29.Rf2
   Jul-03-14 M Golubev vs A Kovchan, 2006 (replies)
patzer2: Found 24. Nxf5!exf5 25. Nd5 for my Thursday solution. However, if it hadn't been a puzzle I doubt I'd ever have considered calculating it. Instead of 25...Ne4 What I expected was 25...Qe6 with play continuing 26. Nf6+ Kf7 27.
   Jul-02-14 Hort vs I Radulov, 1974 (replies)
patzer2: Visualized and picked 15. Bxh7+, Kxh7; 16. Ng5+, Kg6; 17. Qh3 as my choice to solve this Wednesday puzzle. However, I had to click to the final position to see the answer to 17...N(d)xe5(diagram below): [DIAGRAM] From here, it's mate-in-three after 18. Qh7+ Kf6 19. Nce4+ dxe4 20. ...
   Jul-01-14 Kotov vs Lipnitsky, 1951 (replies)
patzer2: I hope I find watching today's Tuesday World Cup game in Brazil between the USA and Belgium as satisfying as solving today's two-move mate problem 39...Qh3+ 40.Kxf3 Qh1#. White could have won with 38. Ng5!! instead of 38. ...
   Jun-29-14 Panno vs E Eliskases, 1957
patzer2: Analyzed move-by-move with Fritz 12: <43. Rxd5!!> The move played by Pano is strongest, but it's only one of several winning possibilities. For example the straight forward 43. Bg2 also wins when play might continue 43...a5 44. Rde2 Qf8 45. Bh3 Ne7 46. Nf6+ Nxf6 47. exf6 Nf5 ...
