C Players, Featuring Chigorin Chopped Fredthebea
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

This file is a chopped salad; it's a collection split of a collection split, of a collection split. It has stabilized topically, but Fredthebear has more games to add.

Capablanca has his own collection, but a few games are in here. Charousek shares another collection with Anderssen and Blackburne. Carlsen and Caruana now have their own collections as well, but lag behind. Fredthebear thinks chopped salad is still rather tasty!
