I have decided to reorganize my profile, but it could take some time.

I am now keeping track of the Gold Medal Leaders in the Moves Prediction Contest. Please see User: Gold Medal Leaders.

I'd like to thank the user who gave me a year of premium services from 02/14/12-02/14/13. :)


I used to keep track of all the milestones, but there were too many, and some are inaccurate. This section will be updated soon.

Milestone prediction dates:

9,000th kibitz: Monday, March 25, 2015

10,000th kibitz: Wednesday, September 6, 2015


Penguincw's Game Collections

I was about to finish my game collections, but decided that I need a long break from them. To view all my game collections and learn more about them, see here: Game Collection: Table of Contents.


Once again, if anyone's interested in the stats or milestones, view the archived link.


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 has closed, a lot of the links are "dead". So, I decided to use one of my game collections for that purpose:

I compete in prediction contests often, and so far, have gotten these medals:

KKRR (2 gold, 2 bronze; currently 33rd most successful)

KKKKKNNNNNBBBBBBBB (5 gold, 5 silver, 8 bronze; currently 10th greatest all time)

KKR (2 gold, 1 bronze; currently 15th most incredible overall performance)

KKKKKKKKKNNNNNRRRBBBBBBBB (9 gold, 5 silver, 11 bronze; currently 10th best)

Updated through Sinquefield Cup 2014.

Penguincw: Radjabov has drawn his first 9 games. That matches his total from the last tournament. In Baku, Tomashevsky drew his first 9 games before beating Andreikin. In the final 2 games, Radjabov has black against Kasimdzhanov and white against Gelfand. Also worth noting, tomorrow there's
   Oct-31-14 M Vachier-Lagrave vs A Giri, 2014
Penguincw: 17...c6 up to 20...cxb5 is a neat combination! I guess it's not a good idea to attack 4 pieces at a time...
   Oct-31-14 Radjabov vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
Penguincw: Oh look! Another Berlin by Radjabov (with "cooperation" from Caruana). That's the 3rd Berlin this tournament (and 19th in his career). The novelty here is 12.Ne4.
   Oct-31-14 Kasimdzhanov vs Gelfand, 2014 (replies)
Penguincw: This game actually followed Ivanchuk vs Gelfand, 2008 by transposition up to 18...Ng7. In that game, Ivanchuk played 19.Qd4 and won on move 41. Here, Kasimdzhanov deviates, but Gelfand has learned his lesson. This draw also extends his undefeated streak against Kasim to 14 games.
   Oct-31-14 G Minchev vs A Petrov, 1994
Penguincw: < bcokugras: 18. I would prefer : Qxb8 Qxe3+ > Me too. After 19.Kc1, material is actually pretty balanced (white has a rook for bishop, knight and pawn), but is threatening both Qxc8 and Re1+, both of which will a piece.
   Oct-31-14 K Spraggett vs B Harper, 1976 (replies)
Penguincw: Not even close to guessing this Friday puzzle (19.Rxe5 Nxe5 20.Rxe5, surrounding the king).

Penguincw: First and foremost, welcome to <cg> <Gato>! < Member since Jan-02-12 > Okay, you've been on for some time, but this is the first time you've opened your forum. :) Anyway, if you don't mind, I'll give a crack at your puzzle. The way I see it, 1.Rxb6+ cxb6 2.Qxb6+ ...
   Oct-30-14 A Rodriguez Vila vs G Kanefsck, 2007 (replies)
Penguincw: I got 30.Qb4 and 30...Qd7, but 31.Qf8 I might've gotten if I saw the board after move 30.
   Oct-29-14 Caruana vs Kasimdzhanov, 2014
Penguincw: 20...Rc8 21.Nc6 Rxc7 22.Ne7+ Kf8 23.Rxc7 Kxe7 24.e4 Be5 25.Rxd7+ Kxd7 26.exd5. Well that was an interesting way to exchange a rook and 2 minor pieces. < 8th round Caruana draw vs Rustam K. Caruana still has chances to win this tourney if he plays as in the recent Sinquefield ...
