Games in my "GOTM" web site.
Compiled by LIFE Master AJ

This is the game collection for my "Game Of The Month" web site. (Originally at: although this website is now closed.) My very first game was the exciting game that eventually decided the Russian Championships for 2003. (Svidler vs Morozevich, 2003)

I made this collection by request, so you would know when I annotated it and where you could go to see those annotations.

Be sure to check out any and all posts and kibitzes on the individual games themselves!! Good stuff! Have fun! (NOTE!!! Some games in my website ... have no corresponding game here. For example my March, 2004 game is from the Bundesliga competition. It is a game between Svidler and Rustemov. Yet it is NOT carried here!)

Please see my annotations of these great games ... and of course, please e-mail me at: "," to let me know what you think!!!!!

NOTE: Geo-Cities (The original home of my "Game of The Month" website); will be closing soon ...
