   Sep-29-18 Botvinnik vs Ragozin, 1927 (replies)
Sourav: <Retireborn> Your explanation makes sense. Thank you so much! Another question: Why didn’t Black play 9…Nb4?

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
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-10-18 Szabo vs Wade, 1949
Sourav: Thank you! It is clear now.
   Feb-23-18 Tal vs Petrosian, 1974 (replies)
Sourav: <ChessHigherCat> Thanks! But, what about 18...Bg4? I will also find the answer on my own.
   Dec-31-17 Karjakin vs Radjabov, 2008 (replies)
Sourav: Why didn't White play 17. Nd5? Here is one line: 17. Nd5 Qd2 18. Ne7+ K~ 19. Bd2 thereby winning a pawn.
   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
