[what is this?] --*-- [what is this?]

  1. Beautiful combinations
    Beautiful combinations
    122 games, 1849-2023

  2. Capablanca
    30 games, 1909-1939

  3. Cooked!
    These sure looked like good combinations...
    3 games, 1941-1988

  4. Crouching Tigran
    I guess what fascinates me about Petrosian's style is his ability to demonstrate wins in positions that, superficially, seem equal at best. He seemed to be very good at luring his opponents into such positions.
    51 games, 1945-1983

  5. Exceptions to the "rules"
    You know the usual "rules" that I'm talking about--develop quickly, castle early, keep your king safe during the middlegame, two bishops are better than two knights in open positions but not in closed positions, doubled pawns are bad and tripled pawns are worse, etc. etc. Here are games which illustrate that these "rules" sometimes have exceptions.
    41 games, 1863-2017

  6. experiment
    The experiment was to see if putting this game in a game collection would get it onto the list of Jacobo Bolbochan's notable games. It seems that a game has to be in two collections before CG will elevate it to Notable Games status.
    1 game, 1966

  7. Fighting draws
    Not your typical "grandmaster draws." These are games where two great players fought hard to win, and the only logical outcome was a draw.
    20 games, 1866-2009

  8. Great Endgame Battles
    30 games, 1858-2012

  9. Humor in chess
    16 games, 1893-2009

  10. Masterpieces of long-term strategy
    10 games, 1908-1993
