Cogano's Favourite Games
Compiled by Cogano

These games may be disparate, but have at least one thing in com -mon, sheer brilliance. It doesn't matter what circumstances led to the brilliant moves (weak players, blunders etc.), nor does it matter that they may be among the masters' weaker games. What matters is the fact that these games produced among the most ingenius moves, most of them mating ones, known to chess. Sit back and enjoy. If you're fortunate, other users will have kibbitzed to them & added positional & tactical analysis. Make use of them, as they are most useful & instructive. Take very good care all, and have yourselves a most joyous day, every day.
