    Oh really?... so how do we get it?... do we download it?... if yes, how long to download? Is this something like one of those annotated games on chessmaster?

    Couldn't be easier. Just plug in the URL I gave you, and it will take you right to the lecture, which will automatically play in Windows Media Player. Takes about 20 seconds to load.

    The video presentation is IM Bill Paschall annnotating the game via audio. Highly entertaining and informative. I never can understand master games, but with Bill explaining every move, as well as several lines that might have been taken but weren't, it's a snap to follow how the masters think (or at least how this IM THINKS they think!). Enjoy!

    That was good, but to learn something I will have to slow it down and watch it quite a few times, as the info flies at you. But it was great to get an insight into the thinking of an IM by his commentry, psticularly on the positional moves made.
