   Mar-12-17 Tal vs R Toran Albero, 1961
Sourav: This game is given in the book "The Complete Manual of Positional Chess" by Sakaev and Landa. In that book, the authors criticize the move 7...Nbd7. They state that White can now drive away the Knight on f6. But, can't White do that even if Black does not play 7...Nbd7? Also, even if

Sourav: Please ignore the question above. 7. Bf4 is simply met by 7...Nd4. Also, 7...f6 is better met by 8.Be3 than by 8.Bf4.

Sourav: Position I.6 is as follows: [DIAGRAM] The author states 'Black wins, no matter whose move it is'. I do not see how black can win this game. Can someone please explain?

Sourav: He was my childhood friend. We used to live in Bilaspur (India). We played only a few games. He always won! He passed away on 18-May-2007. Rest in peace my friend!!
   Jul-02-14 Kramnik vs Bareev, 2003
Sourav: Thank you Shams! Thank you Albertan! I definitely need to sharpen my calculation skills!!

Sourav: I met Alan in June last year at Pega WORLD, which is an annual conference that Pegasystems organizes for its partners and clients.
   Apr-25-14 Pachman vs Szabo, 1947
Sourav: I think I have found the answer to my first question above. The move 9...f5 is bad because it creates a hole on e5. White later exploits this on move 12. Is my analysis correct?

Sourav: Happy Birthday Alexandra!! Hope you become the world champion again!
   Apr-21-14 Ahues vs Alekhine, 1936 (replies)
Sourav: I am reading Pachman's book these days. I just finished replaying this game. I got a second hand copy on Amazon.
   Apr-20-14 Flohr vs Petrosian, 1950 (replies)
Sourav: By playing 11.Nb3, white gives up his good bishop on c1 for black's bad bishop on h6. But, was it possible to not move the Knight? I think that white would have had to move the Knight sooner than later because there is no way of breaking the pin that the black bishop on h6 imposes on
