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:

Game Collection: Chess Puzzles

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: Darn it! I got 33.Rxg6+ Kxg6 34.Nh4+ and stopped there, not because I couldn't find the followup, but because I actually thought that was checkmate.

Penguincw: (facepalm) I should've spent more time on this puzzle, as 39.Rxg7 is not the answer.
   Dec-15-14 P Vavra vs V Slezka, 1994 (replies)
Penguincw: Yay Mondays! 29...Rxd1+ followed by 30...Qxb2# 0-1. Although white can prevent mate on b2 by using moves such as Rb3 or c3, there's only one problem: the white king is in check, and white has to do something about <that> problem.

Penguincw: Just a small correction that I'm pretty sure the user mentioned would appreciate. :) < and Travis Bickel = VIABLE TRICKS. >
   Dec-14-14 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2014 (replies)
Penguincw: 36.R2e6. Nice exchange sac by Caruana.
   Dec-14-14 Adams vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
Penguincw: < Classical games: Viswanathan Anand beat Michael Adams 18 to 6, with 36 draws. > And the domination continues.
   Dec-14-14 M Apicella vs Lautier, 2001 (replies)
Penguincw: I didn't even get the first move. :( On the bright side, tomorrow's Monday (yay and nay).
   Dec-13-14 P De Pender vs Grischuk, 1996
Penguincw: 22...? would make a good mid-week puzzle.
