My Favorite Games of the World Champions
Compiled by Lokaz
--*--

As a blundering patzer, I humbly arrange these recordings of what I believe show the style of our World Champions at their prime. Never faltering, never surrendering. Whether it is a swift and fluid endgame wrapped with brilliance, or a sparkling attack that shatters an entire army, or the demonstration of completely insane but winning conceptions, they are here.
