Jul-04-03  ksadler: This is a brilliant attacking game by Short. I don't know how long it's going to be there, but on there is a flash version of this game annotated at
Jul-04-03  Larsker: Diesen rocks. I saw the latest program with Alekhine-Capablanca, Karpov and Petrosian. Highly recommendable.
Jul-04-03  ksadler: I agree...I really enjoyed his analysis of the games and thus why I spammed here with the link...
Premium Chessgames Member Ksadler, you're not spamming, you're sharing valuable information. is great; it's our second favorite chess-site. ;-)

I wonder, however, if these links you provide will continue to work in the future, or if they take old presentations offline. Time will tell.

Jul-05-03  ksadler: <Will they take old presentations offline> I'm not sure, but I assume so. I heard there this morning while listening that they don't have an archive of the live games yet, but they may for the presentations. I guess we'll find out soon.
Apr-01-05  mack: A game everyone should know.
Apr-01-05  fgh: Nice game. I will take a deeper look at it later.
