The t_t Players: The 1900s
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

The 19th century games of Staunton, Steinitz, Saint Amant, JH Sarratt, and William Potter are in another collection. For those who are not romantically inclined, the 20th century hypermodernists Savielly Tartakower, Duncan Suttles and Kevin Spraggett are in here! (Richard Reti is in the R's collection, and it would be wise to study Vasily Smyslov.)

This is a slow collection shift. Site under construction by Fredthebear.
