    Just realised!  Unfortunately, 509 games lost... (and some draws too, but they are just a bit dull really).

    Anyway, how many do you think I need to win before I can think about publishing "my best games...."? Wink

    That'd be like a 5 year old publishing their best drawrings.

    Well, I see that in his "My Best Games of Chess 1924-1937", Alekhine covers 120 games.  I already have nearly 10 times that amount.  The law of averages means that there must be some gems amongst them...

    Edited to add (for happyfanatic):

    I don't think I need a strong engine to tell me exchanging my queen for a pawn is a bad idea.... !

    Once you do, you can publish a book also.  Obviously, given your higher rating, our target audiences will be different.  We could launch an entire series...

    I would only write about my "best" games, zschess.

    I am sure Tartakower wrote a book--500 Games Of Master Chess. I think I have got it somewhere.

    I have found the book referred to earlier--

    "  500 Master Games Of Chess"  by Dr. S. Tartakower and J. Du Mont first published in paperback by Dover in 1952  (my copy 1975)--665 pages + index.

    It is 3 volumes in one comprising:-

    Book 1:Open Games

    Book 2:Semi Open Games     .

    Book 3: Closed Games.
