Aro Dynamic Masters
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

The A names collection of Fredthebear has branched off again. Adolf Anderssen, Alexander Alekhine, Mickey Adams, and Vishy Anand already have their own separate collections.

The games of Levon Aronian, rated as high as 2835 are the main focus of this list. FTB has not done a specific search of his career as of yet, so many interesting games must be outstanding.

* Arianne Caoili In February 2015, Arianne Caoili and Levon Aronian announced on Twitter that they are engaged. They married on September 30, 2017.
