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.

newzild: A cool game by my countryman, but even more interesting is his amazing missed win against Karpov on move 28: Karpov vs Chandler, 1983 Would make a good Sunday puzzle.

newzild: <mrknightly> Ahhh, I forgot that bit about God telling him to kill his son.

newzild: You guys are missing: 36. Rxh6+ Kg8 37. Rxg7+ Kxg7 38. Qf6+ Kg8 39. Rh8#

newzild: <mel gibson:> After 17. Ng6+ Qxg6 18. Qxd7, White has a rook, a knight and two pawns versus two bishops.
 
   Sep-11-21 C Blocker vs Xiong, 2015 (replies)
 
newzild: When I saw one of the players was "C. Blocker", I expected a different pun.
 
   Sep-08-21 M Orr vs S Knott, 1986 (replies)
 
newzild: Knott a bad pun, but an Orrful game.
 
   Sep-07-21 B Lalic vs Kengis, 1997 (replies)
 
newzild: After 36. Rg6+ Kh3 it's important to play 37. Qg5. If White tries 37. Qb6 or 37. Qd6 instead, Black can sacrifice his bishop on e6 and then play Rh8.

newzild: <Phony Benoni> I'm guessing 23. Rd1, with the following main line: 23...Rxf7 24. Rd3+ Ke2 25. Qe4+ Qf2 26. Rd2+ Kf1 27. Qe2#
 
   Sep-03-21 Leonhardt vs A Brinckmann, 1927 (replies)
 
newzild: <Brenin> Looks pretty convincing, though White can try 42. Nd6, giving his king a flight square. Looks like Black still wins with 42...Rxd6 43. Qxb7 Rd1+ 44. Kg2 Bf1+ 45. Kf3 Rd3+ 46. Ke4 (making use of the flight square) 46...Rd3+ 45. Kd5 Bg2+ 46. Kc4 Bxb7.
