|♔ 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:
