   Good afternoon everyone and welcome to another quick-recap of the weekly show Your Games Analyzed which is hosted by GM Magesh Panchanathan. This week's episode was open to Platinum/Diamond members and began at 10 AM Pacific.

   After doing a puzzler "trivia question" last week, the show returned to its roots this time with just your basic Chess knowledge question, which is below:

   Q: What two players played the "Game of the Century?"

   A: Fischer and Byrne

   After a minute or two once the initial winner handed off the chance to get a game analyzed, pellik was announced the winner and here is his game below with Magesh's variations but with pellik's commentary during the course of the game.

   Now I am doing something new here by not only including the game in this blog, but also uploading it to's Downloads section for anyone who wants to look at the game closer. I am using Chessbase 11 to post the games so the game would best be viewed using any Chessbase product. So look for the download a few minutes after this blog is posted. But here is the game below:



   As a special treat, here is the PGN from "The Game of the Century" with analysis and commentary:



   So that's it for this week everyone. YGA will return next week at the same time of 10 AM Pacific/1 PM Eastern/6 PM London time. Have a great night and don't forget to join the Official Group today!  Cool
