Harmony in Chess
Compiled by Rodrigo Gutierrez
--*--

I love harmony in chess and this is a collection of games that intends to illustrate this. The games in this collection are neither overtly tactical or fully positional. I like to think of these games as little symphonies where everything is in place. I guess my goal as a chess player someday is to get to play a game that's 10% as beautiful as any of these!
