1980s Babes, Booms & Busts Broke Fredthebear
Compiled by fredthebear

Site still under construction by Fredthebear. The endless scandals and corruption of the 1990s was given it's own collection. Some interesting draws from the 1990s were left in at the bottom.

Note to self: This collection is painfully in need of more Viktor Kupreichik games! He became a GM in 1980.

If you came here for the babes, they aint showed up yet. Must still be fixin' all that gelled up Valley Girl big hair doo... on the fashionably late plan. A good-lookin' first impression is important to snag a beau.

So, let's kick this off w/a 1978 victory by The Fed (may he be amused). The point is that any large collection invariably has some mouse click errors due to the narrow selection line that occasionally results in some games being dropped in the wrong collection. But, we love Fedorowicz almost as much as the girls, so he stays. A review of the Maroczy Bind in action is a good thing.

Thank you mmzkr.
