  tpstar: Wide screen!

<whiteshark> A brief major piece endgame but with a historical twist at the end = Capablanca vs G A Thomas, 1919

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: Thanks <tpstar> - how could I have overlooked this game?

<Wide screen! > Indeed, when my pc crashed the other day my son simply ordered a wide screen at the same time.

What a different universe... to view things oblong, not square!

My read is that User: Jersey Joe 's other collections are duplicates, too.

  whiteshark: Well here he is: Jaredfchess' Game Collections, copying 16 middlegame collections

  whiteshark: More: Game Collection: QP System with Bf4 (London, Tarzan, Veresov) by User: kenilworthian

has been fully copied by User: rudiv and -already mentioned above- <Jersey Joe>.

Oct-13-17  zborris8: <whiteshark - copycats are dirty rats> I know what you mean, my game collection took ages to put together! I think that collections are the result of personal analysis, and that analysis related to chess must be protected as intellectual property - especially on a chess site. I think it's reasonable for you to demand that site moderators regulate game collections for duplicates in order to protect the best interests of all the members.

  whiteshark: More copying:
Game Collection: 98_F00_Franco-Benoni Defense by User: iamlam

and Game Collection: 98_F00_Franco-Benoni Def Compiled by Whiteshark by User: fredthebear who gave me credit as is right and proper. He's probably the greatest collector here w/ zillions of collections and w/ funny intros.

Note both didn't use 'my'* theoretical intro Game Collection: 98_F00_Franco-Benoni Defense *(from Tim Harding, actually)

  whiteshark: DL-Link for <Octavia: <Wolfgang Heidenfeld - Draw!>>
Premium Chessgames Member
  Octavia: Hiya, I also copied some collections. It saves having to duplicate games & I always tell the world where I got these collection.

I tried to download your Heidenfels games, but zip files always beat me. I don't know how to open them even though I've got chessbase.

How come you've got 72 games? Heidenfeld only discussed ~ 9 if I remember correctly.

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <Octavia: .. <but zip files always beat me. I don't know how to open them>>

I use <7-zip> as zip/unzip tool (programe). It's free. Here's a d/l-link to a German portal:

1) unzip <Wolfgang Heidenfeld - Draw!.zip> with a.m. programe 2) open files with chessbase afterwards.

<How come you've got 72 games? Heidenfeld only discussed ~ 9 if I remember correctly.> I don't know either. This file was part of an e-book chess collection and upto now I have no reason to mistrust it/them... ;)

Good luck / Alles Gute!
