♔ MY PROFILE ♔

★★★ ANNOUNCEMENTS ★★★

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. :)

★★★ GAME COLLECTIONS ★★★

Penguincw's Game Collections

I have decided to stop working on them for a while. To view most of 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)

★★★ PREDICTION CONTESTS ★★★

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

YouRang

OhioChessFan
♔♔♔♔♔♔♘♘♘♘♘♘♘♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗ (6 gold, 7 silver, 9 bronze; currently 9th greatest all time)

lostemperor

Overall
♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♔♘♘♘♘♘♘♘♖♖♖♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗♗ (12 gold, 7 silver, 12 bronze; currently 10th best)

Updated through Tata Steel 2015.

YouRang's contest: User: YouRang

chessmoron's contest (hosted by OhioChessFan): User: OhioChessFan

lostemperor's contest: User: lostemperor

★★★ ACHIEVEMENTS ★★★

Here's my short list of achievements on this site (other than achievements relating to the prediction contests):

- 966th user to open up their forum.

- Became the 68th user to reach 9000 posts (unofficial).

- Only the 2nd user (honour shared with 7 other users) to win a membership from the Santa Claus cause twice.

More links will be added as time progresses.

★★★ FAVOURITE POSTS ★★★

Here are some of my favourite posts around the site (no reason given to some):

Probably my most useful post to date: Kibitzer's Café (kibitz #101766)

SwitchingQuylthulg chessforum

chessgames.com chessforum

YouRang describes his Hall of Fame (which I am in): YouRang chessforum (kibitz #12605)

A post good enough to make the Memorable Quotes Forum (not sure how though): OhioChessFan chessforum (kibitz #10507)

More posts will be added as time progresses.

Penguincw: (continued) In Game 2, it started with 1.e4 e5 2.c3 Nf6 4.d4 Nxe4, but white kept pushing their pawns forward, and my knight got kicked around. In fact, white had a chance to trap my knight, but missed it. I thought I was going to lose, but I was able to fight back. Eventually, ...

Penguincw: And Mariya Muzychuk snaps Koneru Humpy's perfect streak. Since losing her first game, Muzychuk has been playing pretty well actually (8-2, including this game). Muzychuk trying to become the first 8-seed to ever knock off a 1-seed in WWCC knockout history...

Penguincw: Hmm. Black is already up 2 pawns, so I don't understand why black can't keep it simple with 28...Rxa4, and be up a 3 pawns, with no compensation for white. Of course, if there's a quick victory, then sure, take it, but I wouldn't play 28...Rxh4 OTB. As for this actual puzzle, I ...

Penguincw: A harder than average Tuesday, but I got it. I don't know about you, but as soon as I saw this game, I knew it was from the 19 century, and thought of 3 other games: the Immortal Game, the Evergreen Game and the mate with Legal's Mate. The first move I saw was 11.Qxf7+. :| ...

  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.
