KP Miniatures - Save
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

Fredthebear forgot who originated the collection. Some great players and famous games are in here, as well as contemporary unknowns. Of course, Fredthebear will bloat this collection with his own additions. Thank you syracrophy for your game contributions.

There is some variety in here, but it is mostly Scotch Game, Center Game, Alekhine and Scandinavian Defense games. Fredthebear believes most club players are happier to play games featuring a rapid clash of the center pawns, for the pieces come flying out soon after. Regular folk seem to prefer an active pieces game with some exchanged pawns out of the way, instead of a slow, subtle pawn struggle creeping up one wing or the other.

* Game Collection: Checkmate: Checkmate Patterns This link has a good, concise collection of diagrammed checkmate patterns by name. The new reader may wish to consult it initially to the point of memorization.
