  3. Funny games
    This is a collection of funny and stupid games from the top players in chess, both past and present. This collection used to be my "World Class Blunders" collection, but I've made it more broad, now not only the stupid games are in here- sometimes the plain funny or amusing ones are too.

  5. Picturesque Positions
    I'm not too sure what exactly is a "picturesque position," but I guess the simplest and most straightforward definition would be a position so amazing, beautiful, or unique that it is practically "worth framing" as Eggman succintly put it. If anyone finds any great positions worth framing, please tell me!

    I used to have a set of criteria below, but I found it a bit too dogmatic and longwinded, so just simply tell me if you think a certain game position is very interesting. Usually if it resembles anything in the collection already, I'll immediately accept it. Thanks in advance.

    96 games, 1787-2004

  6. Secrets of the Russian Chess Masters Volume II
    Lev Alburt and Larry Parr's classic book. The title of the book is actually rather misleading, really. It's basically a chess puzzle book. It won't improve your strategic skills a lot, but it makes you really sharp. is missing a few of the games from the book.

  7. Thunderstorms from a Blue Sky
    Kasparov and Alekhine played some of the most beautiful and creative games of all time. Here's a collection devoted to their most interesting games.
