    I want to analyze a good GM game that has a lot of tactics with the English opening. Any ideas?

    Well IMHO Kasparov's latest book on his match with Karpov in 1984 and 1985 has some fantastic games and the style difference between the 2 makes it really interesting.

    All told there are about 60 deeply annotated games.

    You could do a lot worse!

    Edit: Just re-read your post and realised you wanted games with the english and tactics neither of which is really in the above book. Sorry! That will teach me to post after a night shift!!

    A matchbook on Kasparov-Karpov 1987 in Sevilla will be nice, Kasparov played the english throughout that match.

    I think his plan is to cover all the matches up to and including their "last battle" in 1990 so that should be on the way eventually.

    Also, Korchnoi played the english in a few games of the 1978 match against karpov.
