  Instructions:

For those games that have links to "Play Game,"  you can print out the notes and follow along learning possible reasons for the moves, as you play the game on the "Chessgames.com" website, clicking the ">" symbol to make one move at a time.  If the game is not available on that site then you can learn how to read "chess notation" and play the game on a chessboard as you read the comments about the moves.
