  1. a 6
    1 game, 1969

  2. A Scandinavian for black -Icelandic
    I started playing the Scandinavian after years of being a 1 e4 e5 guy. This is a source collection for some ideas. Just bought Smerdon Scandinavian book (Recommended) as I am intrigued by his lecture found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2Q... .

    My collection starts off with 5 games copied from Kellworthian Smerdon Scandinavian Collection.(thanks!). It then moves through the various flavors of the Portuguese Variation depending of whites move after ...Bc5. Then other variations where white does not play 3 d4. The banker goo.gl/13Hwkc
    The risky banker goo.gl/yPrV7T dxe7 check
    The safe banker goo.gl/QNydEp Be5

    A SCANDY Portuguese playing GM's goo.gl/eCZ6w5 and goo.gl/aVfZ6F

    128 games, 1987-2018

  3. A Wandering Tour through the Kings Gambit
    My goal in time is to have very strong games of all flavors of the Kings Gambit- Accepted and Declined as both white and black to inform my future play.
    5 games, 1900-1960

  4. alapin gambit -alapin diemer gambit + reti gam
    Gambit openings against the French. As white I enjoy playing these lines than traditional French Defense lines .

    Reti Gambit refered to as French Defense: Horwitz Attack. Papa-Ticulat Gambit on this site. The Reti Gambit in this collection begin with the Reti Game.

    Thomas Johansson who wrote the Facinating Reti Gambit posted this video on youtube about it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w53j...
    he also has this blog
    http://borgchess.blogspot.com/

    I started out playing the alapin gambit but now prefer the reti gambit.

    I'll also list some Caro-kann gambit games as well . The Euwe Attack.


    53 games, 1892-2006

  5. Alterman BlackGambit Guide1 : 1. D4 -BenkoGambit
    This is the only Alterman Gambit Guide that i own. I am in the process of learning alternatives to the Kings Indian as Black. These games although mostly not in the book they speak to the spirit of the counterattacking line of The Benko Gambit, The Blumenfeld Gambit, The Vanagian Gambit, English Defense Gambit.

  8. Art of Attack in Chess Vladamir Vukovic & Chess
    I am slowly creating this collection as I read it with page numbers associated with the recent Nunn Algebraic edition . The current collections on this book in Chessgames.com are missing a handful of games. I am sending in games complete scores for publication as I find them. I am currently reading this book and invite others to join along.

    http://takchess.blogspot.com/2007/1... (2018 note: I appeared to have fizzled out on this) I also added games from VV book "Chess Sacrifices"

    I find myself often looking at Timothy Glenn Forney's collection's so I put a link here for my easy access.

  10. Attacking Games
    78 games, 1837-2014

  11. Attacking games

  12. Attacking Manual Volume 1 - Basic Principles - A
    Games from Jacob Aagaard's Quality Chess Book The Attacking Manual 1-Basic Principles. These two books are his attempt to teach everything about Attacking Chess. Volume 1 is on Dynamics while Volume 2 is about tactics. His attempt to write a Vukovic type Art of Attack Book with clearer thinking/writing and modern ideas. This is a working book and includes diagrams to study Stoyko style. Entertaining Annotations. Recommended!

    His Concepts by Chapters

    1) Bring All Your Toys to the Nursery-include all your pieces in your attack

    2) Don't Lose your Breath-Momentum

    3) Add Some Color to your Play -Colour Schemes

    4) Size Matters- Numbers over Size(material worth)

    5) Hit 'em where it hurts - attack the weakness point in your opponents position

    6) Chewing on Granite - attack the strongest point in your opponents position

    7) Evolution and Revolution -( build-fight-build-fight)

    Manual 1 speaks to Aagaard's ideas around Attacking the King with each chapter discussing an idea and illustrative games to support them. An introductory sample is found here

    http://www.qualitychess.co.uk/ebook...

    also: The Chessgame link to the Volume 2 - collection Game Collection: Attacking Manual Volume 2- Aagaard

    Plus: Added to the end of this collection: These are positions with white having a one point a pawn on f6 and a fiancheto pawn structure by black.

    76 games, 1929-2008

  13. Attacking Manual Volume 2- Aagaard
    Aagaard meant this volume to be a followup to The Art of Attack but with modern games and clearer writing. A great book worthy of lengthy study.
    101 games, 1896-2009

  14. Benko Gambit-Tay's,Alterman's,Jacobs book & More
    I play the Benko Gambit as Black. Junior Tays Benko Gambit Move by Move book and the appropriate chapters in Alterman's Blacks Gambit Guide 1 and games from this site are my learning source.

    Some games in this collection are annotated in these books but most are similar to games in the books only for the earlier open lines. I like Junior Tay's chapter classifications and decided to match games to the order these variations appear in his book.

    I am sifting through Black wins with Kibitzing for additional games for this collection.

    I also added the games from Jacobs book . Thanks MicheleLiguori.

  18. Big Bucket of Chess Tactics- Deflection
    Big Bucket of Chess Tactics by Theme
    --I got a number of Chess Problem books and I find it interesting to matchup the Problem with the game. Mainly I am trying to only add games which I see listed in a book. There should be a good cross section with Puzzles/Games of the Day. Most likely this will be a slow build however I hope each will eventually have a big bucket of examples of each Theme.
