A B C Players 21st Century
Compiled by fredthebear

This is a collection split of Fredthebear.

This file was one of my originals that outgrew itself a couple times over. Large collections of games by the same famous chess player were eventually given their own separate file.

Fredthebear's advice to subscribers is to create several small but distinct collections by individual player, opening, ECO code, tournament, era, book author, pattern or piece technique. Do not have large collection dumps of such variety like this. Of course, this still serves a certain flexible purpose for me... no need to delete it.

The A players and David Bronstein are currently being removed into their own collection unless they played another A, B, or C player.

The games of world champions Alexander Alekhine and Jose R. Capablanca are in their own folders. In no way does this collection come close to doing them justice.

Some Romantics... Anderssen, Blackburne, Charousek, and Chigorin have moved together to another folder. So did Alapin, Bird, and Colle. However, if these fellows played one another, the game is possibly included in here.

Most of inmate Claude Bloodgood's games are in the Grob section. He is one-of-a-kind story in itself.

Contemporary greats Anand, Aronion and Carlsen have moved to another folder for the most part. Those collections are nowhere near complete but they would not fit in here. Again, if they played another A-B-C player, that game is included in here.

Games were once grouped in alphabetical clusters by name, but so many players made that difficult to locate all the various clusters quickly -- too much scrolling up and down hundreds of games just to accurately place one game, so most are now intermixed by the year that the game was played. Using the year (or ECO code) number requires no scrolling for proper placement within the file. Modern players... the recent years... are on the bottom half of this list. Several games by Fabiano Caruana are down there, but he also has his own collection now.

Once again, because of space limitations, no games this century will be kept in this list. Adams and Aronian can be found in the A players collection. Anand has his own collection, as does Carlsen. These fellows play soo many recorded games nowadays that they're not going to fit in here.

Thank you sneaky pete, Prasha.
Thank you Phony Benoni, Gottschalk.
