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-03-22 Magnus Carlhammar
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.
   Nov-25-22 Ivanchuk vs J van Foreest, 2022 (replies)
newzild: Vasily took his opponent into a deep dark Foreest before blundering 2-3 times.
   Nov-20-22 Ivanchuk vs L Bruzon Batista, 2005 (replies)
newzild: I also went with 29...Rac6, which is disappointing as I once missed a very similar tactic to the game continuation in an over-the-board encounter.
   Nov-11-22 B Finegold vs Sosonko, 1989 (replies)
newzild: According to Finegold, they didn't shake hands before the game because neither man extended their hand. Sosonko was cross about this, and 'yelled' at him after the game. Apparently it was a cultural misunderstanding -- Sosonko felt it was the job of the younger man to extend his ...
   Nov-09-22 M Salami vs M Godena, 2001 (replies)
newzild: Lots of candidate moves to consider here. 32...Rg3, 32...Nxe4, 32...Nd5, 32...Ng4 among others.
   Nov-07-22 Chandler vs C Ionescu, 1980 (replies)
newzild: <Chesschronicle22> The main difference is that you're giving Black ...Be7 for free. Is this better for Black or for White? Almost certainly for Black, because the bishop attacks White's g5 pawn.
   Nov-04-22 Carlsen vs Niemann, 2022 (replies)
newzild: <yiotta> If a report was filed with the USCF then it would be in the public domain.
