I have decided to reorganize my profile. If anyone wants to see it like before, view a link such as

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.


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:

Here's a sample:

White to move, mate in three

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: And she continues to inch closer, as it's just a mere 2 points. Unfortunately, she'll have to wait until the WCC until she plays again (unless there are some other events until then).

Penguincw: A little more tricky, but I still got it. 1...Re1+ 2.Kh2 (2.Nf1 Qxg2# 0-1) Rh1+ 3.Kxh1 (3.Nxh1 Qxg2# 0-1) Qh3+ 4.Kg1 Qxg2# 0-1. Don't worry, I actually enjoy these easier puzzles (especially towards the end of the week, when the POTD becomes impossible). ;)

Penguincw: Hooray! Nikolay Noritsyn remains the only player perfect at the 2014 Durban Open (4/4). There are 14 GMs and 5 IMs (excluding himself) at the tournament. There are 7 players rated higher than his 2449. So far at the tournament, he's faced one unrated player, one untitled player, a

Penguincw: When someone has time, please look into this: Yannick Pelletier < Highest rating achieved in database: 2611 > < His best-ever Elo rating, 2624, was achieved in January 2003. > The latter is correct.

Penguincw: Happy 38th birthday to GM Yannick Pelletier. I thought he was the strongest Swiss player out there, but Vadim Milov (born in Russia, citizen of Switzerland) and Sebastian Bogner (born in Germany, citizen of Switzerland) have higher ratings, so let's just say, he's the Strongest ...

Penguincw: Finally a Monday puzzle! It's been a whole week since the last Monday puzzle. ;) Anyway, this puzzle is actually a little too easy, as 21.Rh8+ Kxh8 22.Nxf7+ picks up the queen. At the end of all this, white will be up a queen and 2 pawns for rook and bishop.

Penguincw: I thought I was getting better by being able to solve puzzles as deep as midweek, but now I can't even guess the first move (which is what I usually do). :(
