Two really fine shows in a row. What I especially like is that Lawrence pauses to explain the point of a move in the context of the overall strategy or particular tactics, which then makes the ideas useful in other similar positions. Hence it is not simply a display of a single isolated game but rather a teaching opportunity, and he does a great job of blending instruction with a general reporting on a particular game or two. Excellent preparation by him, and I will return for the next show.
