    They appear to be "computer annotated" -- nothing but a few variations here and there in the few of their examples that I checked.

    I agree, but did not know whether you wanted word-annotated or variation-annotated games.

    What I am looking for is a database arranged by opening that contains verbal annotations . None of the above fit the bill but thanx anyway for trying.

    I know... Ihave spent hours looking for the same thing, and it does not exist yet. The closest is the gameknot annotated games link but the annotations are mostly by intermediate players. What I ended up studying are the gamesin the free section of openings in the stydy course of chessok.com (ctartchessok.com) where each opening has a series of grandmasters "exemplary games" which are all annotated.

    All other compilation of annotated games is costly. I hope e+books will compile one, their format is great.
