803 games in total. Out of 803 hand picked games, not even a single game for your talkchess family? At least we can discuss some games deeper. Because there's no analysis yet for any of those games, as you claimed. What do you mean, I just posted one. Now try refuting Bxa4 does not win for black. T...
