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.

   May-16-21 B Socko vs Krasenkow, 2000 (replies)
newzild: My first attempt was 32. Qh3, threatening 33. Rg6+ Kh1 34. Qf3+. But Black can play 32...f3.
   May-12-21 B Beffie vs P F van Hoorn, 1923 (replies)
newzild: Interesting game. Terrible pun. Would have been better without the irrelevant 'Kellog's'.
   May-09-21 E Alekseev vs I Krush, 2013 (replies)
newzild: Entertaining attack by White.
   May-07-21 Keene vs R Eggmann, 1965 (replies)
newzild: I like it how the only note by International Master Raymond Keene is a note saying 'Notes by International Master Raymond Keene'.
   May-06-21 W Adams vs L S Greene, 1941 (replies)
newzild: <FSR> He tore Kashdan a new one in this game: W Adams vs Kashdan, 1940
   Apr-26-21 A Lastin vs D Bocharov, 2008
newzild: White's initiative almost played itself after Black missed 16. e5, exploiting the weakness of f7. <goodevans>, <Brenin>: One idea of 22...Qa5 was to defend against the threatened sacrifice on d5.
   Apr-21-21 J Penrose vs B Soderborg, 1959 (replies)
newzild: Jeepers. What just happened?
   Mar-31-21 H Karner vs Karpov, 1972 (replies)
newzild: An interesting game, despite the inaccuracies.
   Mar-25-21 Smyslov vs I Radulov, 1977 (replies)
newzild: A masterful effort by Smyslov - instructive to follow his thought processes as he built his attack. His pawn sacrifice must have been based on judgement, rather than calculation.
   Mar-21-21 A Graf vs R Felgaer, 2004 (replies)
newzild: I found 23. Rxe5 Rxg3 24. Rxd5 almost immediately, and was congratulating myself on how easy it all was for me until I saw <mel gibson>'s post.
