This page features some of the greatest chess games ever played between some of the greatest chess players ever known. These players include Morphy, Capablanca, Rubinstein, Fischer and Kasparov.
GAME 1 : The Evergreen game
The opening here is the Evans Gambit and this produced this sparkling game full of invention and good play!
Game 2 : Morphy plays at the Opera- the ‘Opera Game’
Morphy gets an opening advantage in this Philidor defence game and absolutely comes up trumps with an oustanding checkmate combination featuring a Queen sac. Morphy shows just how amazing his chess playing ability was to produce such a finish.
Game 3 : The Gold coin game….Rotlewi vs Rubinstein
What an awesome finish!
Game 4: Capablanca end game mastery
This opening is the Queen’s Gambit Declined Orthodox Rubinstein variation. It is the end game where Capablanca
shows fantastic chess playing technique.
Game 5 : Byrne vs Fischer (Fischer at 13 years old shows what a talented chess player he is).
The Grunfeld defence opening . A great game starting the amazing (if somewhat turbulent) chess career of Bobby Fischer.
Game 6 : The champion of modern times -Gary Kasparov
Here is a video of this game (video by Kingscrusher at YouTube):
Do you have a favourite player and or favourite game?
Another one of my favourites is the Kieniger mate trap in the Budapest defence (a favourite of Akiba Rubinstein).
I have won with this mate on several occasions in internet blitz where it can catch an unwary opponent off guard.
I will post more famous games later…
