Learning from Yasser Seirawan Part 1

Learning from Yasser Seirawan Part 1

Currently in my studies I am looking at the games of Yasser Seirawan. I have decided to publish my analysis for a couple of reasons:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. This forces me to analyze every week and work hard at producing the best work

2. I believe that many viewers on Chess.com can also benefit from learning from Seirawan's games.

Yasser Seirawan was born on March 24, 1960 and is an American Grandmaster. In the late 1980s and 1990s Seirawan was at his peak, and became known for his positional style and involvement in chess politics.

The following game is taken from his early years and features a nice struggle with chances for both sides.

 

I will definitely try to publish every 1.5 weeks (hopefully every week) so keep posted!

    ok. Thanks. Sorry, it's been about a year since I've done a thorough analysis. Great to see someone kept at it from our group!

    I have not checked my analyses with a computer, so I may have some glaring errors... otherwise it looks like the seemingly obvious f3 may lose to this sensational line.

    Right before move 18, in your variation, you note in the byline that 26... h5 is equal. Maybe I'm missing something, but would 27. f3 win material for White?

    Very nice analysis :)

    I like how you explain the clear plans of both sides.

    What is the plural of analysis? Analysises or Analysie or ??

    Please leave a comment, be it "hi" or "you suck", anything would be great. (although I would hope for positive criticism and less verbal abuse ;)

    Thank you for reading!
