20 Moves or Less
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

The accepted definition of a chess "miniature" is 25 moves or less. The very shortest brevities have been placed in other files.

Note that most Sicilians and French defenses were removed to their own file because there are too many examples to include here.

Fantastic Paul Morphy miniatures were moved to his folder; he had so many! Morphy had the sensational ability to wipe out opponent after opponent. A few zaps are still hanging around here.

Most games played by NN have also been moved. You must check out Greco, Blackburne, and Tal, etc. They torched NN.

Thank you billyhan, gr2ca,amtr, D.Observer, MorphyMatt, queen sac, ianD, painho, lightpath, ChessDude33. Thank you to Bill Wall for collecting so many miniatures over the years. See 6 compiled by gr2ca.
