    I think posting your games in PGN will give you more answers.

    Yep. Noone is going to sit and put all those games into PGN for you. We will help, not be your slaves.

    As you may have gathered, I am very new to computer-assisted chess, and am used to simple algebraic format. I was unaware that you wanted them in PGN, and don't know how to put them into it. In fact, until very recently I was unaware of what pgn format WAS, much less how to convert it.

    These games are three extremely early pieces of game analysis--dating from around 1497. I was curious if anyone was interested in giving their own modern analysis of the old lines.

    My apologies if I've offended you, though I think accusing me of trying to "enslave" you is a bit extreme. I'm just a guy interested in all of your comments on the matter.

    Im afraid you just took it too far, your comments were out of line

    Don't worry. King's Indian FTW was quite rude to me too when I asked for help. But I think that you definitely want to improve, so I'll go through the first fragment (but just remember, I'm by no means the strongest player on RHP).

    Thanks. It's not so much improvement I'm after as sheer analysis--researching historical chess has long been a hobby of mine.

    I suspected as much. Next time I will stick to noncontroversial topics like religion and politics, and leave chess notation alone.

    Now that was NOT sarcastic!

    Are you sure you have written it down correctly? Black never takes the Bishop on b5 with the a-pawn, and on move 13, you say the King moves to c1, when the move before, you said a Rook moved to d1.
    BTW, a Knight is not shown as Kt, but N. Can you check that for me please?

    I love your puzzle book thread! Way better than any I could come up with.
