Santasiere's "My Love Affair With Tchigorin"
Compiled by Resignation Trap
--*--

The American Anthony Santasiere was a frequent contributor to the American Chess Bulletin for 30 years and was certainly one of the most colorful writers of our royal game.

Upon his death in 1977, Santasiere had willed some manuscripts to Kenneth Ray Smith of Chess Digest. Among these materials was a collection of games by Mikhail Chigorin , one of the truly great players of all time, who, curiously, had never had a collection of his games published in the English language.

In order to remedy this situation, in 1995 Chess Digest published Santasiere's manuscript posthumously under the bizarre title "My Love Affair With Tchigorin", written in Santasiere's inimitable style.

Here are the game from that book.
