ZeejDonnelly's favorite games
Compiled by ZeejDonnelly
--*--

Some of my favorites from throughout chess history. All of these games feature some sort of beautiful tactic or combination. Most are fine attacking gems, but some defensive brilliancies are included as well.

The good Doctor sacs nearly every piece in a Danish Gambit
Hartlaub vs M W Testa, 1912 
(C21) Center Game, 24 moves, 1-0

White delivers mate with his last remaining piece, a Knight!
F Young vs L Dore, 1892 
(C21) Center Game, 22 moves, 1-0

The Black Death sacs and sacs and mates, while blindfolded!
Blackburne vs NN, 1863  
(C21) Center Game, 24 moves, 1-0

Bronstein's beautiful deflection Rd8! wins an exchange
Bronstein vs NN, 1950 
(C22) Center Game, 10 moves, 1-0

Duras produces a magnificent skewer tactic
Duras vs E Cohn, 1911 
(C77) Ruy Lopez, 48 moves, 1-0
