11,000 Master-GM Short Mates pgn. It used to be on Chessville.com, but now its closed I guess.. I followed the link from here, http://bishopsbounty.blogspot.in/2008/12/opening-tactics.html. Am I too late to find this?
No, you're not too late!
You can find an online version of these 11,726 games here with a viewer:
I don't see a convenient way to download the entire PGN file and in fact it will not even copy the individual PGN files from the viewer, but at least it is available online.
Your play is restricted because you have not followed our Fair Play Policy - which prohibits stalling, abandoning games or frequently aborting. You must now wait 5 minutes between games. This restriction will be lifted automatically after a few days, or after you play several fair games
I stated it earlier: for 6 a 7 months ago, chess.com was right, to give me a warning like this. But from that period i close games properly and leave the way it should be. When i am loosing a game ? Don't i have the possebility to give up the proper way than before the time expired ??? Yes, when i see in a Blitzgame i loose, i give up after perhaps 1 or 2 minutes. But as i stated it: i do that the proper way. I do not leave the game, lettin' my opponent wait. I push the right button before i leave- or start a new game. In other words: i improve myself all about my behaviour.
So tell me: why is chess.com still keep on tortering me this way ???
Lol, Fred_Hache - at least most spamming has some relevance to the subject!
dizziz, I've just downloaded the zipped PGN file from the site given above (see post#2) & some of those games look interesting. I had to double-click on the zipped file & then again on the unzipped file to open it in Notepad. It is quite slow but that's probably because of the size of the resulting file (approx. 6.7 Mb?).
When you get there, you can copy+paste any of the games into Game Editor & play them through.
Well, it is not my purpose to get "in fight" with, to have troubles with Chess. Com. It is the best site i know (worldwide) to play blitz & bullet chessgames. I love it to come here, and as i mentioned, i did adapt myself already to the rules, but still getting those messages en suspend already for 5 minutes, that doesn't feel good.So i hope i may leave a game when i loose before te time expires, when i leave it on a proper way, and so on.
Yes, it seems that Chessville is back online. The link above is valid. Thanks, @EscherehcsE ! I had removed that site from my bookmarks but it has reappeared.
I don't think Chessville is back, it looks like toast to me. The link I posted was to archived pages on the Internet Archive. You can get at the content that was there when they went belly up, but don't expect any new content unless someone with Chessville decides to make it rise from the ashes.

You are correct. I didn't notice the unobstusive banner at the top of the page or in the URL and simply clicked on the link as posted. (Edgar) Thomas McCormick has a 1914 birth date and he is responsible for many of the games and utilities on Chessville. Perhaps he is in ill health or gone (he would be 99 this year) and the gauntlet has been allowed to fall for lack of funding and/or enthusiasm. There are some very good links and collections in that archive.
