elohah: I remember to this day... the bright red Georgia clay How it stuck to the tires after the summer rain...
   Jan-06-11 M Hebden vs S Arun Prasad, 2009
elohah: After 38...Rd4!, it was necessary to analyze White's unlikely looking alternative of... 39 Qxf7+! Which turned out to be much tougher than I thought. 39... Ka6 40 Qe6!! I was ready to give up on 36...e5 here. I even wrote 'and Black can't win.' Then....'L.N.-No!' 40... Qxc1 41 ...
   Jan-06-11 S Arun Prasad vs M Panchanathan, 2009
elohah: Btw, we can erase the question marks to the move pair at 45. For 45 Rh7! had a THREAT that I missed - Ra7!, winning the knight! And 45...Bg1! protected against that.
   Jan-05-11 K Arakhamia-Grant vs S Arun Prasad, 2009
elohah: Notes... 11...d5 = 20...So a blockaded stucture has been reached, perhaps to keep more play. I guess Black has the ...f6 break coming up. 26 Many would be uncomfortable allowing this, but Arun plays thru it well enuf. 30 For example here, 30 fg looks frightening, but really isn't: ...
   Jan-05-11 S Arun Prasad vs J Markos, 2009 (replies)
elohah: Notes... Not much to say. Arun played like a 2500+ player, dominating thru-out in what always looked like a favorable structure. Benjamin beat Browne from the Black side of this in a key U.S. Ch. game when he was just a kid, tho. So I'd like to leave the 'status' of this structure ...
   Jan-05-11 S Arun Prasad vs N Berry, 2009
elohah: 15...! 16...! Your're not going to create the perfect system, and ruin Chess, Botvinnik! You see, kids, Black DOES still have some activity via the ...c5 break, even tho it gives him an isolated pawn. So what? See Tarrasch on that, or how about Korchnoi? For we must rage, rage, ...
   Jan-05-11 W F Buchanan vs S Arun Prasad, 2009
elohah: Notes... 11 Yeah. Tho this may lead to relative equality, White's further play shows the typical carelessness of technique that characterizes most players below Prasad's rank. 15 ?! 16 ? Drops a pawn (thanx to 15 Rae1?!, allowing Black a double tempo gain) Better 16 Nb1. 21 If 21 ...
   Jan-05-11 S Arun Prasad vs G Kjartansson, 2009
elohah: Notes... 9 ! 9...?? We can see the processes behind this move. Black wants to play ...Ne4. Since that dumps a piece after Nxe4!, he protects his bishop, and then the RETAINED IMAGE makes him think that he has already played ...Ne4, and he intends to answer 10 g4! Qg6 11 Nh4 with ...
   Jan-05-11 S Arun Prasad vs Short, 2008
elohah: Instead of 25...Nd7?, 25...Qb6 26 f4 gf 27 Bxf4 Nd7 28 Nf5 Ne5 29 Qg3 Bxf5 30 gxf5 Qd8 (with ...Qf6 next) appears to take care of things.
   Jan-05-11 S Halkias vs S Arun Prasad, 2010
elohah: Notes... As often when an inconsequential side-pawn is captured, the one dropping it can drum up compensating counterplay, e.g., White's 24th, 25th, and 26th moves. And then instead of 27 h4?, the simple regaining of the pawn after 27 Nb4 Ra3 28 Nxd5! is preferable. Missing that, of
