Here are the 33 games that appear in Irving Chernev's Logical Chess, Move by Move.  It is in PGN format (zipped up and called with no annotations, just the moves.

    Good work, but there are some errors:

    In game 2 the move 8.Bd3 must be replaced by 8.Be3 as Dumbom has noticed.

    In game 6 the move 14...Qh5 must be replaced by 14...Qf5. Also the rest of the game is defferent.

    This is excellent Smile  The comment that it's no use without the annotations is strange. The ideal I'd say is to go through the games solitaire-style first on a program, working out the next move, then go over the annotations in the book (which of course we buy - don't rip-off Mr ChernevSmile). It's repeatedly recommended as the way to study games and now it's infinitely easier with programs and databases like this.

    Many thanks.

    I think there might be a typo in game 2?


    8. Be3 instead of 8. Bd3 (or the otherway around)

    Thank's Bill I have the Book so this file comes in handy.

    If I study a book with games in I just search my database for the Game.

    and go though the moves on my 3D board.

    Perhaps, but annotations from the book violate copywrite laws.  The file is there as a guide to study along with the book.  You an always add your own annotation or run it through a chess engine.  I personally do not like annotations and would rather play over the raw games.  If I want to annotate it or find good or bad moves, I can run it through a chess engine and get better ideas as to what was good or not.  Almost all authors miss good or bad moves or make mistakes in their annotations that would not be missed by a strong program.
