If you have a good photo, you could have it printed at a site like Shutterfly.

Did this thread die? or tranformed to another?

 

My pictures of the great people :)

The famous Toronto (Canada) chess organizer Vlad Dobrich. He organized many Opens what attracted >200 players. Brought B.Spassky to Canada and was his personal driver. He and his friends published chess magazine for several years. These days he runs rapid OTB tournaments every Saturday. Last Saturday we celebrated 50 years of his endeavour.

Here he talks about the endgame what he played with many GM :)

 

Chess player.

I thought the images you posted were a worthwhile contribution. No apology is necessary.

I'm going to have this thread locked. Its time has passed in that those truly great photos are quite hard to come by. Also, anyone having load-time issues will not see them get worse.

It's been great. The best example of community effort that I've seen here.

My thanks to all of you for making it such a fun time.

Please feel free to start up a Greatest Chess Photos II.
