   Mar-28-21 P Thipsay vs C Duncan, 1994
Sourav: Excellent!
   Mar-21-21 Z Almasi vs Watson, 1994
Sourav: 24. Bb6 forks the Rook and the Pawn. But, 24... Rd5 is better than 24... Ra8, which simply abandons the file.
   Dec-23-18 Botvinnik vs Ragozin, 1927
Sourav: <Retireborn> I have been through your explanation and I understand it. Thank you! For some reason, I am finding a little extra difficult to understand the moves in this particular game. I wonder why.
   Dec-07-18 Unzicker vs J H Donner, 1955
Sourav: 12. Nd2 and 16. Bh6 were the star moves.
   Sep-07-18 Hrant Melkumyan
Sourav: <Retireborn> Thank you so much for the explanation. Although I did see 12. Re1, I could not see a good continuation after 14... Bxc5. By the way, Stockfish suggests 15. Bg5. Also, I have a feeling that Black made bad moves earlier than move 10 by not developing his pieces ...
   Jun-30-18 Botvinnik vs N Grigoriev, 1927 (replies)
Sourav: I think Black plays 5...Bb4+ in order to catch up on development. Am I correct?
   May-27-18 Pachman vs Szabo, 1947 (replies)
Sourav: <Retireborn> and <Telemus>, thank you for your responses. I agree that a3 does not really seem to serve any purpose. I will do further research and see if I can come up with a convincing answer. Also, I am prepared to realize that the move might not serve any purpose at ...
   Apr-26-18 Chigorin vs Tarrasch, 1896
Sourav: <Gregor Samsa Mendel> Thank you! I will analyze further and understand this game.
   Mar-25-18 Larsen vs Spassky, 1970 (replies)
Sourav: Isn't 6...bc6 a better move because it enables a subsequent push of the Black d pawn to d5 thereby dominating the center?
   Mar-10-18 Szabo vs R G Wade, 1949
Sourav: Thank you! It is clear now.
