  nasmichael: What, do you collectively think, are 5 of the top 50 games played before 1940 that every chess student should be playing through? Much of chess culture could be focused upon during chess study--even "snapshots" of positions and the ideas behind the text of the full games--could be used as part of a study program. If you respond, pick games that have had a particular effect on how you play the Royal game; I want personal experience, not what someone else has told you. For instance, the first time I played through Capablanca-Corzo 1901, Havana, I was just a novice (some say I may still be one ;-) )and I got the visual impression, as I played through it a few times, of a man climbing a mountain. It had a flow I could understand, even though I did not have the "vocabulary" to carry on such a conversation with someone at the board. It affected thw way I saw the pieces moving. The fact that this was a master against a boy of 13 years held my imagination also, as I had not met a youth who could hold an adult in what I thought was an "adult's game" to me then. The game moved on like it was a story, not just people picking this piece then that piece. The moves were meant as a dialogue, asking questions, making comments, coming to decisions, evaluations. That is why Capablanca-Corzo, Havana 1908 is one of my "Games of Influence".

How about you?

Apr-29-09  sfm: Sometimes players seem to have little fighting spiring, resigning very early just because the position is lost. Mr. Horwitz is not one of them.
