[what is this?] --*-- [what is this?]

  1. Fischer and Kasparov: the Patzers
    Lowlights in the chess careers of Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov. Fischer was a petulant manchild, who left whenever things didnt go his way. Kasparov was the man who represented the human race against computers, AND FAILED!

    I did not include their many losses against WC's. In fact much of the competition isn't even GM level. Everyone keeps saying these guys were pretty good, but looking at these games, I just do not see it. ;)

    101 games, 1955-2007

  2. GumboGambit's favorite games
    These caught my eye
    43 games, 1783-2013

  3. Ken Rogoff Chess Highlights
    As we are from the same hometown, Ken Rogoff is one of my favorite Chess players. He left competitive Chess at an early stage and has had one of the most successful post-chess careers that anyone can think of. Think about it: whose life would you rather have, Rogoff or Bobby Fischer?

    Unfortunately, instead of commemorating a true success story, his forum on this site has quickly devolved into the same political flamewar that can be found all across the internet, talk radio, pundit TV, etc.

    I wanted to establish a place on this site to commemorate his chess career. Here are some of his most prominent games.

    74 games, 1968-2012

  4. Names of the Game
    Games featuring some of the most memorable names in the chess world.
    21 games, 1892-2018

  5. Pirc/Lion/Czech Highlights
    Victories by Black playing Pirc versions (1.d6 2. Nf6). These would include Mainline/Modern (g6, Bg7), Lion (e5, Nd7), and Czech (c6), variations.

    For the most part, the opposition is either GM-level or similar skill level to that of Black. Fischer, Karpov and Kasparov are among the victims.This is to show that the system can work even against strong competition.

    101 games, 1941-2014

  6. Torre Attack Highlights
    Victories by White playing the Torre Attack against top competition. For the most part, the opposition is either GM-level or similar skill level to that of White.
