This ought to keep some of you guys busy.

1000 positions distilled from the short games of chess by Irving
Chernev, with Answers! Look at the puzzle, and then click "show answer"
and play through the moves. This constitutes much work.

they seem pretty spiffy. Thanks a bunch!

Has anyone ever classified all of these games by opening?

These are diagrams taken from the 1000 short games so they are not
classified. I actually prefer them in this format since it gets right
down to the nitty gritty without playing through the blunders (by nature
one side has to blunder massively to create a short game). The problems
are medium difficulty with combination themes every player should know
since many of them occur frequently in amateur play (i.e. Sacrifices on
f7).

If you found Chernev's collection of short games inputted into
chessbase, then they would automatically be classified. I am sure a
collection like this already exists somewhere.

The link to the problems is herea, since my last link did not work:
