My favorite players are Emanuel Lasker and Amos Burn. Both are very careful and practical players, and I emulate their style in my games. While Burn shows unbelievable brilliance for his time, Lasker is peak for any period in history (including now).

I follow many other players, such as Horatio Caro and Georg Salwe.

   Nov-27-18 D Daniuszewski vs P Romanovsky, 1909 (replies)
shallowred: Of course I meant to write: 61. Kf6! (not 70. Kf6!). I used up all of my brain-power trying to figure out how White wins after 61. pxg8 (he can't), and I blundered the post.
   Sep-14-18 Salwe vs S Izbinsky, 1903
shallowred: 50.Rf2! cuts the Queen off from the e1 square, sets up a block of 50...Rf1+, and if Rooks are traded (as they are in the game) then the King can avoid perpetual Queen checks.
   Jul-22-18 Bird vs Teichmann, 1895
shallowred: Schiffers' notes are from the Tournament Book. The exclamation point and note ("After this move, Black's Pawns rush forward with irresistible force.") actually come after 32...Rc4!. I stumbled upon this cool Exchange Sacrifice during my early studies of Master Games, and it left ...
   Jul-04-18 Dus Chotimirsky vs Chigorin, 1907
shallowred: Notes from the 2007 version of the Tournament Book encourage Dus to: 'make Black demonstrate the win after 46.h5.'
   Dec-03-17 Capablanca vs G Wainwright, 1913
shallowred: Of course; kudos to Wainwright
   Jul-11-17 H Wolf vs H Suechting, 1904
shallowred: Suechting out-plays Wolf, but Wolf continues the game a piece-down; until Hugo calmly finishes him off.
   Jul-11-17 H Suechting vs W Cohn, 1897 (replies)
shallowred: 15. NxB! After Cohn retakes (15...NxN); Suechting saw that his f3 N could rapidly make it to c6 (propelled by a discovered-attack on the g4 N) where it would fork the Queen and Bishop. And since the Bishop would also be hit by the e1 Rook (after 17. f4 chasing away the blocking ...
   Jun-12-17 Chigorin vs Salwe, 1907 (replies)
shallowred: 47... b4! "Salwe fights like a Lion; his position is nevertheless untenable." - Marco / Schlechter Tournament Book This is why I study Salwe games.
   Jan-16-17 Max Weiss vs Burn, 1888
shallowred: 26...NxP! "A very fine move, and not at all easily to be seen. If 27.PxN, then 27...QxP, attacking the Rook, and if the Rook moves 28.Rb1; White would lose by 28...RxR 29.QxR QxB+" - (notes by Hoffer collected by Forster in his biography on Burn)
   Jul-25-15 H Suechting vs Schlechter, 1897
shallowred: The draw is forced because the c6 pawn and the h5 Knight take escape squares away from the Black King.
