♔ MY PROFILE ♔

I'd like to thank the user who gave me a year of premium services from Feb/14/2012-Feb/14/2013, the user who gave me 3 years of premium services from Dec/26/2015-Dec/26/2018 and the user who gave me 2 years of premium services from Dec/31/2018-Dec/31/2020. :)

★★★ BIOGRAPHY ★★★

Outside of chess, I also like to watch sports (who doesn't), and even play sports (even though I'm not great at it). Baseball is by far my favourite sport.

★★★ GAME COLLECTIONS ★★★

Penguincw's Game Collections

To view all my collections, see here: Game Collection: 0: Table of Contents.

★★★ CHESS PUZZLES ★★★

Here are some chess puzzles I composed. I'm not a very strong composer, but they should be fun to solve nevertheless. However, since my forum won't always be open, I decided to use one of my game collections for that purpose:

Game Collection: Chess Puzzles

Here's a sample:

White to move, mate in three

Solution: (click on above game collection)

★★★ ACHIEVEMENTS ★★★

Here's my short list of achievements on this site (other than achievements relating to the prediction contests, which are listed further below):

966th user to open up their forum.

Became the 45th user to reach 13,000 posts (unofficial).

Only the 2nd user (honour shared with 7 other users) to win a membership from the Santa Claus draw twice.

In the ChessBookie Game, finished first in the Championship 2015 preseason with 1727 cbs, 174 cbs ahead of 2nd place. Also, in the Fall 2014 preseason, I finished in 2nd with 1418 cbs, just 40 cbs behind first at the last known update.

4th user, and 3rd overall (after <SwitchingQuylthulg> (x2), <wordfunph> and <Annie K.>) to run the ChessBookie Game.

At the 2016 Caissar Awards, I was nominated and won the "Most Helpful" award for 2015.

In Spring 2016, I became the 172nd user to qualify for the Championship Leg in the ChessBookie Game, finishing in 10th place with 4,204 cbs. (fact-checking needed)

★★★ PREDICTION CONTESTS ★★★

I like competing in the prediction contests, and so far, have won these medals (along with the rank listed):

<Golden Executive>

♔♔♔♕♕♕♕♖♖♖♖♖♖♖ (3 gold, 4 silver, 7 bronze; 23rd)

<chessmoron> (hosted by <OhioChessFan>) ♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♘♘♘♘♘♘♘♘♘♘♘♘♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗ (10 gold, 12 silver, 22 bronze; 10th)

<lostemperor>

<Overall>
♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♕♕♕♕♘♘♘♘♘♘♘♘♘♘♘♘♖♖♖♖♖♖♖♖♖♖♖♗- ♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗ (20 gold, 16 silver, 33 bronze; 8th)

Updated through Tata Steel 2018.

<Golden Executive>'s Games Prediction Contest: User: Golden Executive

<chessmoron>'s Moves Prediction Contest (hosted by <OhioChessFan>): User: OhioChessFan

<lostemperor>'s Final Standings Prediction Contest: User: lostemperor

Other Notable Achievements:

Only user to ever win a quadruple crown (London Chess Classic 2011) in the Moves Prediction Contest (or any contest for that matter).

Only user to ever win a Betting title crown in the Games Prediction Contest, and defend it the very next year, same tournament (Tata Steel 2014 & 2015).

First user to ever win a gold medal in each of the 3 contests from the same tournament (Tata Steel 2015).

The 4th user to have won at least 3 golds in 3 different contests (after <chessmoron>, <lostemperor> and <SwitchingQuylthulg>). Members of this club are unofficially considered to be "grandmasters" of the prediction contests.

For the 7th consecutive year (2011-2017), I have won at least one gold medal in one of the contests. I am one of just 6 active users to have done so, the others being <chessmoron>, <cromat>, <lostemperor>, <SwitchingQuylthulg> and <WinKing>.

★★★ NOTABLE POSTS ★★★

I've made over 13,000 posts, but not all posts are created equally. In fact, most of them don't have too much value, but here are some of my best posts:

Probably my most "viral" post to date (introducing the now defunct Chessgames Playing Zone The Kibitzer's Café

Probably the first <on the internet> to notice the Original Six sweep the Tampa Bay Lightning were going through during the Stanley Cup playoffs, 2015: Mating Net chessforum.

More posts will be added as time progresses.

Here are some of my favourite posts by <other users> around the site (no reason given to some):

You know, it was 8 years ago. :) But I like penguins. However, the name "Penguin" was long taken, so gotta add some letters at the end.

  cu8sfan: Thank you for your kind words on my forum. I have been so busy this year, I never had the chance to check in here on cg.com. I hope the situation has calmed down a bit. At least it seems like the difficulty level of the PotD has been fixed, I now can solve Mondays and sometimes Tuesdays. :D

While it's too late for Happy New Year wishes, I sincerely hope that 2019 will be good to you!
