Greatest Chess Minds Video Index

This blog was created by enju, I just put it in alphabetical order and have added new videos not available when this list was originally made. Enju did most of the work and deserves all the credit here!

Do you recognize 2 of the greatest chess minds in history here? Both of them are featured in this series, the smiling player in an 13 part series and his cigar smoking opponent in a 5 part series. The photo is from the famous NY International Tnmt of 1924.

Click on the players name (if not followed by "part 1" etc or else click on "part 1" "part 2" etc) I mention this because they don't look like links in my browser, so maybe they don't in yours either.
