I am an UK chess player who plays OTB and correspondence. I particularly appreciate the games of Tal, Alekhine, Tarrasch and Capablanca.

I am particularly interested in the history of chess since from the 19th century. I now spend most of my time working on games collections.

Chessical: <Keypusher> I would like to have the Chigorin - Gunsberg Match (1890) included in the Tournament Index. I note, however, that you have already assembled the games so you have precedence. Is this currently an on-going project for you? If it is not may I write it up for ...
