Chessical's favourite games
Compiled by Chessical

I particularly like the style of the first two decades of the twentieth century. The idea that masters played quiet lines and drew with each other is wrong. Many games were sharply fought and whilst being on positional basis are easier for amateurs like myself to understand and learn from than the heavy theory based games of modern top grandmasters. In this collection I have put in lesser known games which I consider worthy of being seen today.

An early but effective attack against the French Rubinstein.
F Duz-Khotimirsky vs Rotlewi, 1911 
(C10) French, 28 moves, 1-0

Two bishop sacrifice
Kudrin vs H A Machado Jr, 1988 
(C42) Petrov Defense, 29 moves, 1-0

An inspired finger slip?
E Cohn vs Chigorin, 1907 
(A53) Old Indian, 37 moves, 1-0

Rubinstein's destructive power.
Rubinstein vs Levenfish, 1911  
(C14) French, Classical, 29 moves, 1-0

Tal sacs a Knight on f5
Tal vs Barcza, 1962 
(C11) French, 25 moves, 1-0

A razor sharp victory using the Open Defence
Lutikov vs Stein, 1965 
(C92) Ruy Lopez, Closed, 41 moves, 0-1

A Bogoljubow masterpiece of combative chess.
Salwe vs Bogoljubov, 1914 
(A53) Old Indian, 40 moves, 0-1
