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.

   Oct-28-16 Sadvakasov vs Kasimdzhanov, 1999 (replies)
patzer2: Both sides make a mistake in the follow-up to 13. Bg5 =. White's error was 16. Rxe6? which could have allowed Black the advantage with 16...a5 17. c4 Ra6 to (-0.68 2 31

patzer2: Simply because I couldn't find anything better I went for 31...Rxg2+ 32. Rxg2 Rh1+ 33. Bxd5 to for my Thursday puzzle solution. Wasn't sure if it won, but after 34. Rg1

patzer2: <RV> Thanks for the deep 36 depth Komodo analysis of 28. Qc7 to . Looks like 28. Qb6 was weaker.
   Oct-25-16 Alburt vs Fedorowicz, 1981 (replies)
patzer2: <SimonWebbsTiger> <There's nothing particularly wrong with 8. a4> Only problem I see is it allows Black equality too easily. After only three more Black moves with 10...Be3 in the mainline or 10...Bg5 as in this game, Black is fully equal. The won/loss/draw results for ...

patzer2: I found the first couple of moves of yesterday's Sunday puzzle quicker than I found the 20...Nb4+ solution to today's Monday puzzle. Perhaps that's because after seeing 20...Nb4. Kb1, I took a minute or two extra to evaluate whether 21...Rxe1
   Oct-23-16 D Stern vs Hybl, 1968 (replies)
patzer2: For today's Sunday puzzle, like <YouRang> and others, I easily found <25. Rxd5 exd5 26. Nxf5.> But, at least for me, finding Black's best replies and White's strongest follow-up was extremely difficult. In the final position, I did manage to find the winning < 42 Nxc4
   Oct-22-16 Jobava vs Wang Hao, 2006 (replies)
patzer2: For today's Saturday solution, I easily found the first three moves <36.Rxd6! Kxd6 37.Bxe5+ Ke7 38.Bxg7.> However, other than planning to play <39. Bxh7> I found anticipating all of Black's defenses and formulating a specific plan to push the connected passed pawns to be
   Oct-21-16 Smirin vs Y Afek, 1992
patzer2: <Sally Simpson> Thanks for discussing the idea 3. Bb5 Na5!? Looking at the possibilities in the Opening Explorer , the most popular, master-level response to 3...Na5 is 4. c3. It appears 3. Bb5 Na5 4. c3 is a strong enough try that 3...Na5 is seldom if ever tried at Master ...
   Oct-21-16 A Teller vs Tartakower, 1927 (replies)
patzer2: For a White improvement in this game, I'd look to the opening. Instead of 6. e4, allowing 6...Bb4 = with a near level game, the Opening Explorer indicates White can improve his winning and drawing chances with the popular move 6. g3 as in White's win in B Lalith vs Short, 2016 or ...
   Oct-20-16 A Gara vs B Tuzi, 2016
patzer2: The deflection (a.k.a. removing the guard) 10. Bxf7+ is a cute tactic giving White a lasting advantage. The final deflection (a.k.a removing the guard) 36. g5+ finishes the job after 36...Kf7 37. Rf8+ Kg7 38. Qxe6
