Intermediate Level: Game analysis
A few months ago, I was asked to annotate an OTB game, played under tournament conditions, between two intermediate level players in Mexico, and posted the result in the forums.
By convention, games with several inaccuracies and mistakes are not annotated. Yet, for those at the same level of these players, this convention works against their best interests.
