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.

   Dec-22-22 Lasker vs F Carroll, 1898 (replies)
newzild: Yes, giving Carroll the thrill of checkmate was generous of Lasker. Unlike Mr. Byrne in this famous example: R Byrne vs Fischer, 1963

newzild: <<fredthebear:> <14.d3 instead of castling invites an exchange sacrifice 14...RxNf3 15.QxRf3 followed by a skewer 15.Bc6 Q moves 16.BxRh1. If 16.Qf1 to defend the targeted rook, then 16.Qd4 w/pressure.>> Skewering the other way might be better: 14. d3 Bg4! and ...

newzild: <<al wazir:> This one is orders of magnitude easier than yesterday's, which was a Sunday-level puzzle. Is today actually Monday somewhere on the planet?> It's Wednesday here...
   Dec-13-22 P Lalic vs G Wall, 2022 (replies)
newzild: Good game by White, marred only slightly by missing a mate in two.
   Dec-12-22 P Cleghorn vs Evans, 1977 (replies)
newzild: <Eggman> <al wazir> Even 22...Kg8 23.Rxd5 b5 24.Nb6 looks winning to me. Black can't take the rook.
   Dec-10-22 P Korning vs R Christophe-hayot, 2017 (replies)
newzild: I play this variation often with White. 7...a6 is already weak for Black. Better is to develop normally and challenge 8. c5 with 8...b6. The sac on b5 was begging to be made, but would have been much stronger on White's 15th move: 15. Bxb5+! ab 16. Nxb5 Qb8 17. Nd6+ Kf8 White ...

newzild: This dude is 'Almost Famous'.
   Dec-03-22 T Olafsson vs M Carlhammar, 2009
newzild: Good game by Black, who is 'Almost Famous'.
   Dec-03-22 Jobava vs Short, 2017
newzild: 'Baa Baa Black Short' could have been an alternative to the Jabberwocky theme.
   Nov-26-22 P Zarnicki vs F Fiorito, 2000 (replies)
newzild: Accepting the gambit with 4. dxe6 is very dangerous for White. Objectively, White can get an advantage but some of the lines are complicated and the consequences of a mis-step are deadly.
