  2. AVRO 1938
    NOTE : This collection has now been superceded by AVRO (1938)

    In November 1938 a Dutch radio company AVRO (Algemeene Vereeniging voor Radio Omroep) organized and sponsored what was up to that time the strongest tournament ever held. AVRO (literally the General Association for Radio Broadcasting) brought together the World Champion and every one of his major challengers. It ran from the 6th of November to the 27th of November 1938 with the players based in Amsterdam and each successive round played in a different Dutch town. This tournament schedule proved to be tough for the older competitors and Capablanca and Alyekhin did not fare as well as might have been expected. In the end Keres and Fine finished in joint first place with Keres declared the winner as a result of a better tie-break score.

  7. Mike Steen's Favorite Games
    The swashbuckling games of Morphy and Anderson never go out of style, and I have to admit that tactical brilliancies are my favorites because I have a chance of understanding them. But there are many other brilliancies out there. As I continue to study and enjoy this game, I'll post my favorites--both to revisit from time to time and to share with others who may enjoy them.
