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...."?
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):
Go over your "best games" with a strong engine and after its finished trashing them you may have a change of heart !
I don't think I need a strong engine to tell me exchanging my queen for a pawn is a bad idea.... !
I have yet to get to my 500.
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...
That'd be like a 5 year old publishing their best drawings.
Notice the error?
Yeah, it should have been 3 year old....
well done go and write the book dont forget to explain move by move. but also mix the book up with wins draws and losses. how about a calling the book The Joys and Pains of a Chessplayer. good luck
Yeah baby! 500 moments of joy!
Ha Ha,it is impossible for someone to write a book about 500 or more games!(unless you're a Superman)
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.
I think you just described my weekly chess blog.
Games: 4,035 (2,414/1,406/215)
My blitz record, most of my losses are from careless mistakes on my part
