Every Chessmaster Was Once a Beginner
Compiled by Penguincw

"Every chessmaster was once a beginner." - Irving Chernev

That is very true. This game collection displays it. Simply put, this is a game collection containing the first loss (according to the <cg> database) of some of the best players in the world.

No emphasis is really put on the games being in any particular order, except that of course, Chernev's game is first.

In most if not all of these games, the players were way above beginner strength already, and probably didn't even play that badly. So it goes.

Reshevsky vs Chernev, 1921 
(C53) Giuoco Piano, 50 moves, 1-0

Steinitz vs E Jenay, 1860 
(A13) English, 32 moves, 0-1
