Fully Annotated PGN Game Files (for free) Does anyone know of any good, free, annotated chess games that I can run in my PGN viewer?

What I'm looking for is not just sheer volume (800 Sicilian games!!) but quality annotation. Notes on many key moves so a 1400 player like myself can read why a certain move was made.


Thanks in advance!!

From time to time there are annotated games in PGN format at the Chess Informant site. These are always in CI format--just learning the CI codes can help some 1400 players improve positional understanding.

The teaching ladder page at FICS www.freechess.org/Ladder/games.html does contain games mostly played by amateurs reviewed by stronger players. The only vaguely silly thing is that one has to download them one by one.

"the week in chess" website has a weekly free download in pgn and other formats. think it may have all the top/important games played in the previous week. It also has an archive section of all these weekly downloads going back about 4 years or so. p

correction Sorry just realised that you want annotations, don't know about that.
but it's worth a look anyway. p

Here's another site with a few classics and other annotated games. Again though it's a one by one download, though their viewer works well.

Not PGN But from www.chesscafe.com archives you can find games annotated by Yasser Seirawan (Inside Chess).

Try googling ... "PGN annotated"

you'll find a link to this thread, but also many sources of annotated games by masters and patzers
