K Players of Yesteryear
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

So many great players -- Karpov, Korchnoi, Kasparov, Kamsky, Kramnik, etc. However, due to file overcrowding, many games have been shifted to the individual files of the world champions. This collection will always include the best games of the non-world champion "K" players like Kashdan, Keres, and Kotov. However, Fredthebear certainly has not uncovered them all. Irina Krush fans, for example, might be disappointed that more of her games have not been included yet.

A special salute to chess showman Georges Koltanowski (1903-2000) known as the "Dean of American chess." Koltanowski directed the U.S. Open for decades, implementing the swiss system to that event.

Koltanowski possessed a powerful memory and set the world record for games played simultaneously while blindfolded!! His displays inspired so many to play chess better, more aggressively. Koltanowski's king pawn games emphasizing the Max Lange Attack are in another file, but his queen pawn and flank games are in here. "Kolty" played a variety of openings in his exhibitions. He taught the 5.c3 variation of the Colle Opening to many amateurs, but also advocated the 5.b3 system as well.

Koltanowski was originally from Belgium and trained, travelled with Edgar Colle. Koltanowski was the four-time Belgian champion, but moved to the United States as European life was interrupted by the horrors of World War II. Many of Koltanowski's relatives died in the Holocaust. Chess provided Koltanowski's avenue to safety, and he lived in the Unite States for almost 60 years.
