A Players Announced to Fredthebear's Audience
Compiled by fredthebear

This is a thinning out of the A B C collection. Adolf Anderssen, Alexander Alekhine and Vishy Anand already have their own separate collections, so most of their games will not be included here unless they played another A player.

The games of Levon Aronian, rated as high as 2830 top the list. All other players are mixed in chronological order toward the bottom.
