The games and commentaries
The games have been commented, mostly by me (ddyer). The skill levels of the players varied widely, which made a interesting mix of games - some blowouts, some tightly contested battles. In any case, with the comments these games are an excellent educational resource.
The games themselves are in a "sgf format" archive , which is somewhat human readable. You can download the game records for offline study, with or without the Java viewer.
