The t_t Players: Staunton, Steinitz & Zukertort
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

These 19th century rivals played some terrific games, along with lesser knowns Saint Amant, JH Sarratt, and William Potter. For those who are not romantically inclined, the 20th century hypermodernists Savielly Tartakower, Duncan Suttles and Kevin Spraggett are in here too! (Richard Reti is in the R's collection.)

This is a slow collection shift. Site under construction by Fredthebear.
