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.

   Nov-12-19 Suba vs I Madl, 1987
newzild: <Ceri Evans> After 17. Qd4 Qe5 18. fxg7+ Kxg7 White has two minor pieces for a rook, but Black can play on.
   Nov-09-19 Caruana vs Le Quang Liem, 2019 (replies)
newzild: Caruana missed 30. Rf6! This would make a good Wednesday puzzle.
   Oct-20-19 N Pokern vs M Bassler, 1981 (replies)
newzild: <An Englishman> It looks to me like simply 44...Kg8 wins.
   Oct-18-19 D A Yeager vs Stripunsky, 2008 (replies)
newzild: Shouldn't <morfishine> be censured for his comments in this thread? Completely out of line.
   Oct-15-19 Alekhine vs Tylor, 1937 (replies)
newzild: Straightforward stuff: 43.Rg8+ Kxg8 44.Nxf6+ Kf8 45. Nxh5 Ke7 46. Nf4 dxc4 47. Kg2 b5 48. Kf3 b4 49. Ke4 and the King arrives in time to deal with Black's q-side pawns.
   Oct-14-19 Lombardy vs N Spiridonov, 1964 (replies)
newzild: Simple and pretty.
   Sep-24-19 C Costello vs M Fogg, 2011 (replies)
newzild: An instructive technical win by White.
   Sep-23-19 Anand vs Van Wely, 1998 (replies)
newzild: After 35. Bxg6 hxg6 36. Rh2 Kf8, I saw a different mate to <agb2002>: 37. Qh8+ Ke7 38. Rh7+ Kd8 39. Qf6+ Re7 40. Qxe7# 36...Kf7 37. Qh7+ transposes. I agree with other posters who say the 'new' Monday puzzles are harder than the 'old' ones - not that I object to ...
   Sep-16-19 R H Steinmeyer vs Berliner, 1959 (replies)
newzild: <erniecohen> Yes, good point.
   Sep-15-19 Sarin Nihal vs E Safarli, 2019 (replies)
newzild: Pun is back-to-front because it's actually Nihal who wins. Great combo at the end, though!
