N O P Players
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

Let's begin with Super Nez!!

To make more room in here, American champion Hikaru Nakamura's games have been removed to his own collection.

The games of Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian, the 9th World Champion, have been removed to his own collection. A few of Petrosian's games remain in here because he played other N O P players, such as Pachman, Portisch, and Polugaevsky.

Thank you simondt, S A G A R.
