M&M players... it's a mixed bag
Compiled by fredthebear

"Never judge a book by it's cover. You caint tell just by lookin' on the outside. It's what is inside that counts. Winners come in all shapes, sizes and colors." -- Fred the Bear

"Some of Marshall's most sparkling moves look at first like typographical errors!" -- Napier

"I have been playing chess for over fifty years. I started when I was ten years old, and I am still going strong. In all that time I don't believe a day has gone by that I have not played at least one game of chess -- and I still enjoy it as much as ever." -- Frank J. Marshall, U.S. Champion and one of the five original Grand Masters

Most of Paul Morphy's games have been removed. He must have his own collection!

Maroczy is pronounced "MAR-ot-see" by the way.

Thank you to mughug, jungol, Gioachino Greco, Rubenus.

* Game Collection: Checkmate: Checkmate Patterns This link has a good, concise collection of diagrammed checkmate patterns by name. The new reader may wish to consult it initially to the point of memorization.
