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.
