♔ MY PROFILE ♔

★★★ ANNOUNCEMENTS ★★★

I'd like to thank the user who gave me 3 years of premium services from Dec/26/2015-Dec/26/2018. :)

I'd like to thank the user who gave me a year of premium services from Feb/14/2012-Feb/14/2013. :)

★★★ BIOGRAPHY ★★★

I prefer not to reveal too much about myself, but have the following words to say:

I'm a Canadian. I picked up chess in 2009, and joined this site just over a year later.

Outside of chess, I also like to watch sports (who doest), and even play sports (even though I'm not great at it).

★★★ GAME COLLECTIONS ★★★

Penguincw's Game Collections

To view all my collections, see here: Game Collection: 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 66th user to reach 10,000 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. I was also nominated for "Most Constructive".

★★★ 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, 5 bronze; 22nd)

<chessmoron> (hosted by <OhioChessFan>) ♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♘♘♘♘♘♘♘♘♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗ (7 gold, 8 silver, 15 bronze; 10th)

<lostemperor>
♔♔♔♔♖♖♖ (4 gold, 3 bronze; 6th)

<Overall>
♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♘♘♘♘♘♘♘♘♖♖♖♖♖♖♖♖♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗ (14 gold, 8 silver, 23 bronze; 10th)

Updated through Gashimov 2016.

<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).

I am one of just 4 users to have won at least 3 golds in 3 different contests (the others are <chessmoron>, <lostemperor> and <SwitchingQuylthulg>). Members of this club are unofficially considered to be "grandmasters" of the prediction contests.

For the 6th consecutive year (2011-2016), 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 12,500 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

A post good enough to make the Memorable Quotes Forum (not sure how though): OhioChessFan chessforum

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):

The Kibitzer's Café

SwitchingQuylthulg chessforum

chessgames.com chessforum

<YouRang> describes his Hall of Fame (which I am in): YouRang chessforum

More posts will be added as time progresses.

Penguincw: Hmm, after missing yesterday's Monday puzzle, how would I fare today? Well, I got it. Yay. I wasn't sure whether to take the bishop first or pawn first, but I saw taking the pawn first was better, and went with it. But what if 10...Nxd3+ 11.Qxd3 Qxb2? Looks like that 12.O-O is ...

Penguincw: IM Johan Salomon does well at the SS Manhem Chess Week tournament, scoring 6.5/9, getting edged by GM Eduardas Rozentalis 26.25-26. However, he does have a TPR of 2630, and gained 19 rating points (up to 2489), so that looks like another GM norm. ...

Penguincw: Damn it! I thought this Thursday puzzle would be easy to solve, but was wrong. The line I went with was 22.Qg5+ and I saw what would happen if black played 22...Bg7 (23.Qxg7# 1-0) or 22...Kh7 (23.Qh5+ Kg8 24.Qh8# 1-0 or if 23.Qh5+ Bh8 24.Qxf7+ Bg7 25.Qxg7# 1-0). However, if black ...

Penguincw: Yay, it's Tuesday. Easy puzzle, which I got. The line I went with was 24...Bxc3+ first. If 25.Qxc3, then 25...Rd1# 0-1. So, 25.bxc3 is forced (if 25.Qd2 then just 25...Bxd2# 0-1). I followed up with 25...Rxc3. White has to guard both c1 and d1. If 26.Qb1, then 26...Rcd3 27.Rxf3 ...

  Penguincw: Note : My computer won't let me go on the internet so I have to access it by P.S.P. I'm currently not sure when I'll have it fixed. I'm thinking around Friday or Saturday. I will still play the Chessbookie Game and visit the site but probably won't do much kibitzing.
