  1. 1000 Best Short Games of Chess
    Compiled by Irving Chernev in 1954, and a favorite from my young days. Back in the 1960s, I checked it out of the public library and determined to play through all the games by hand during the three week loan period. I did so, but was fortunate that Carpal Tunnel Syndrome had not yet been invented.

    But the experience drilled basic mating and tactical patterns into my head, forming the basis of my later chess style. For better or for worse.

    The games are arranged by length (from 4 to 24 moves). Chernev does abbreviate a few favorites to squeeze them in within the limit, and there are all the usual apocryphal games. But don't worry about it. This is a collection for fun, and who knows? You might even learn something. I did. (Hold on--let me think of a better example.)

  4. Baden-Baden 1870
    Check out Jan van Reek's stupendous website for the historical context and logistics behind this tournament, player information, the crosstable, and final standings: http://www.endgame.nl/bad1870.htm The work put in creates a final result far greater than any I could hope to achieve, and what's more, the general site is a constant source for the information I include in all the historical tournaments I collect anyway.
