A former class A player over 25 years ago, I'm returning to studying chess as a hobby in retirement. Spending more time on end games and middle game tactics 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: < I had trouble with target acquisition with this one.> For me it was more like more like a weapon malfunction at the local firing range: Failure to Load!
   Feb-11-16 Sutovsky vs I Sokolov, 2005 (replies)
patzer2: <Once> Just finished looking at 51...Qd4 with Deep Fritz 15. It does win, but it gets complicated after 51...Qd4 Kg3 52. h4+! Kf3 (diagram below) [DIAGRAM] when the computer indicates play might continue 53...Qd5+ 54. ...

patzer2: Black's set up move 27...Qb8 (diagram below) [DIAGRAM] made 28. Bf5?? far too tempting for White. The reality that White had to no more than equality with 28. Bxc4 = or 28. Rf1 = eluded White because he did not anticipate or accurately calculate 28...Rxf5!

patzer2: <Once> I very much like your straight forward and incisive description of this week's Monday solution/combination as exploiting the "overworked Rook" on f2 with a dual mate thread. I'll definitely use it as an example of the "over-worked piece tactic" in teaching my grandsons.
   Feb-09-16 V Artemiev vs P Ponkratov, 2013 (replies)
patzer2: Back on track in quickly finding today's Tuesday mate-in-four solution 44. Ne7+ Rxe7 45. Rxg6+ Kh7 46. Rh6+ Kg8 47. Rh8#. Black's decisive mistake was 19...Qd7??, allowing the Bishop to be trapped with 20. g4 (+2.53 @ 23 ...

patzer2: After missing yesterday's Saturday solution, I felt like gave me a Super Bowl Sunday present as I correctly played guess-the-move with today's Sunday puzzle with 17. Ndxe4! and for the next six moves which followed. On the eighth move of the combination, instead of ...
   Feb-06-16 Svidler vs F Vallejo Pons, 2004 (replies)
patzer2: Missed badly on this Saturday morning puzzle, ending my streak at 5 solutions in a row this week. I considered the game winner 25...Rfb8!!, but didn't pick it because I stopped my calculation when it appeared Black was too far down in material after 26. Qxc5. As a result, I didn't ...
   Feb-05-16 Jobava vs Galego, 2005 (replies)
patzer2: <Devere...I didn't look at Jobava's move 26.Rg4, which seems better than the more spectacular 26. Rd5.> Same here. I was just happy to find a winning continuation after the obstruction 26. Rd5! However, I made it a point to look at the winning lines after Jobova's 26. Rg4

patzer2: <mel Gibson><perfidious> Let's check. In the game if instead of 27...Qf5?, Black plays 27...Nd5 (diagram below): [DIAGRAM] and <there would follow 28.Rxd5 28....exd5 29.Rc1> (diagram below), [DIAGRAM] Black has the saving resource 29...Rc4! when play might continue
   Feb-03-16 I Krush vs J L Watson, 2016
patzer2: Black was doing find until the mistake 25...Bxe6?, allowing 26. Ng3 , 26. Nd7 or 26. Ne7 (+1.09 @ 24 depth, Deep ...
