  1. 1000 Best Short Games of Chess
    Compiled by Irving Chernev in 1954, and a favorite from my young days. Back in the 1960s, I checked it out of the public library and determined to play through all the games by hand during the three week loan period. I did so, but was fortunate that Carpal Tunnel Syndrome had not yet been invented.

    But the experience drilled basic mating and tactical patterns into my head, forming the basis of my later chess style. For better or for worse.

    The games are arranged by length (from 4 to 24 moves). Chernev does abbreviate a few favorites to squeeze them in within the limit, and there are all the usual apocryphal games. But don't worry about it. This is a collection for fun, and who knows? You might even learn something. I did. (Hold on--let me think of a better example.)

    187 games, 1575-1990

  2. 125 Greatest Chess Games
    according to The Mammoth Book of The World's Greatest Chess Games, New Expanded Edition, by Graham Burgess, John Nunn, and John Emms.

    # above the game represents how many votes it gets by these 3 authors.

    In several games here, some opening move orders are slightly different from the book.

    125 games, 1834-2010

  3. 50 games better than that other Tal game.
    51 games, 1953-1989

  4. 98_A07_King's Indian Attack
    The King's Indian Attack (or KIA), also known as the Barcza System (after Gedeon Barcza), is a chess opening system for White.

    The opening is not a series of specific moves, but rather a system that can be played from many different move orders. Though the KIA is often reached via 1.e4 followed by d3, Nd2, Ngf3, g3, Bg2, and 0-0, it can also arise from 1.g3, 1.Nf3, or even 1.d3
