A New Zealander who has recently returned to Tauranga after a 12-year working vacation in various parts of the world.

I have played three tournaments this century - the Waitakere Open in New Zealand in 2002 (3/5), the Seoul Spring Chess Festival 2010 (4.5/5) and the Seoul Summer Chess Festival 2010 (3.5/4). I won the two Korean tournaments.

A have an Euwe number of three, an Alekhine number of four and a Fischer number of four.

   Jul-02-22 Tseshkovsky vs Lputian, 1977 (replies)
newzild: <outsider> 18...Bxg5 19. Nxd5?? Bxe3+ is check. Jeepers. This was a real kick in the Gulliver for Lputian - the sac on e6 was elementary stuff.
   Jul-01-22 H W Russner vs C Walcker, 1942
newzild: The First Game of the Century!
   Jul-01-22 Capablanca vs Menchik, 1929 (replies)
newzild: <[Capablanca] had the totally undeserved reputation (as Petrosian does today) of being the greatest living endgame player. I recall a game Capablanca played Vera Menchek in which he made three colossal blunders in the endgame ... Capablanca didn't know the simplest rook and pawn ...
   Jul-01-22 O Sarapu vs Myagmarsuren, 1967
newzild: <WTHarvey> Odd that he missed such a simple combination.
   Jun-29-22 D Byrne vs G Kramer, 1954 (replies)
newzild: <EasilyConfused> White has a decisive material advantage and can get to work on loose pawns with 36. Bb4 b6 37. Qg7+, etc.
   Jun-24-22 Capablanca vs Tarrasch, 1914 (replies)
newzild: <ProbabilityTheorist> More like a rare lapse of calculation: 14.Rxd6 Bxf3 15.Rxf6 gxf6 16.Bxe5 fxe5 17.gxf3 Rb8 about equal.
   Jun-15-22 de Firmian vs Yudasin, 1990 (replies)
newzild: I saw 19. Nxe6 but missed the pretty 21. Qe7 mentioned by <Brenin>. I opted for 19. Ndxb5? axb5 20. Nxb5 followed by 21. Nxd6, which I thought would net the exchange and three pawns for two knights. However, this exposes White's king and with the two knights gone it looks like
   Jun-03-22 W Pollock vs T C Gibbons, 1888 (replies)
newzild: Some fun tactics in there.
   May-23-22 L Hazai vs Sax, 1971
newzild: Laszlo Hazai's for Sax!
   May-23-22 Showalter vs Pillsbury, 1904 (replies)
newzild: Perhaps a bit tricky for a Monday because of the number of lines involved, as well as the cook 31. Qd8+?? Qf8.
