♔ 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>

<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.

   Jul-28-16 F A Foulds vs Lang, 1956 (replies)
 
Penguincw: An old puzzle, but cool nonetheless. I saw white's possible mate threat on e8, so thought about 16.Bf4. However, even if 16...Qxf4 17.Qxd5+, black has 17...Nd6. But Qxd5+ and Re8# 1-0 were eventually played in the game, so yay!
 
   Jul-27-16 Phony Benoni chessforum (replies)
 
Penguincw: Crazy 12th inning. After Padres extended their home run streak to 24 games (and led 6-4 heading to the bottom half), Jays rallied for 3 runs, which included a 14 pitch at bat! Meanwhile, Archer allows just 1 ER and 4H (0 BB) in 7 IP vs. the Dodgers, picking up his MLB leading 14 ...
 
   Jul-27-16 A Dueckstein vs H Kramer, 1956 (replies)
 
Penguincw: My first thought was to play 31.Rg5+, hoping for 31...hxg5 32.Qh7+ Kf8, but that doesn't lead to anything. I did find 31.Rxe6 fxe6 32.Rxe6, but had no idea what black would followup, and I am, once again, surprised that black resigned before white responded. However, white is an ...

   Jul-26-16 Sliwa vs Uhlmann, 1956 (replies)
 
Penguincw: Yay, a Tuesday puzzle. I got 28.Bg5+, a skewer, but black's only response is 28...Kxg5. I also got white's response, 29.Rg1+. It would be nice if black played 29...Kf6 so 30.Qxg6# 1-0 or 30.Rxg6# 1-0, but black can play 29...Kf4. Surprised the game ended right there. 29...Kf4, ...
 
   Jul-25-16 M Khachiyan vs Robson, 2006 (replies)
 
Penguincw: Yay finally, the Monday puzzle. The only thing that came to my mind was 43...Rxf3+ 44.Kxf3 Nd4+ and then 45...Nxc2. It wins a pawn and leaves black up a knight and 3 pawns for a bishop. But of course, black still has some work to do, but I still very much prefer black. Of course,

Penguincw: Thanks for a great leg <Switch>, good luck in the Summer Leg (you have won it 3 times already, so no pressure). And yes, I finally qualified for the Championship Leg, albeit on my 11th try. I almost missed it, as in the last month, I lost about 150 cbs, and fell from 2nd to ...

   Jul-24-16 Tal vs Kirjatsky, 1959 (replies)
 
Penguincw: And it's the Sunday puzzle. I, did not get even the first move. I saw it was a Tal puzzle, so knew the first move had to be a sacrifice, but ended up playing a move that was NOT a sacrifice. That move was 26.Qe4. Seems pretty logical, as it threatens mate, but after 26...Qxf2+ ...

  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.
