phenomenon.

Thanks

It's strange how games go in and out of fashion. Irving Chernev's favourite
was Alekhine v Bogoljuboff (Hastings 1922??). But the whole combination was
found to be a waste of time and the game is no longer mentioned.
One of my favourites is the last game of the Lasker-Schlechter match.
Also Spassky-Fischer (13) 1972.

Well, before the combination the game is a strategic masterpiece by
Alekhine.

Alekhine himself considered the game against R. Reti (Baden-Baden 1925)
his best combination.

My favorite is the Alekhine-Saemisch (the queen sacrifice on move 20).

Thanks for that guys.

The Immortal Zugzwang game is just the type of game I was looking for.
It is wierd that a game could be so famous that it gets a name that
sticks.

Anyway you can see the updated list he

How about Kasparov's game as black against Sunye Neto. I've heard it
called the greatest Tarrasch defense game ever.

You also need Rubinsteins Immortal game. Rotlewi - Rubinstein, Lodz
1907. One of the greatest attacks of all time, in my opinion.

Then there is the famous Kasparov - Topalov game. It doesn't have a
name, though, but it is a fantistic game.

How about the Kasparov-Topalov game in 1999 where Kasparov sacs a
Rook? See this game at chess.fm.org under King Hunts. It is one of
the most exciting games ever.

There are also famous games that come with a story that don't have a name,
but should. Perhaps you should take it on yourself to supply the
appropriate title. One that comes to mind is the miniature that Ed. Lasker
played against Thomas in London, 1912, when he was straight off the boat and
knew only enough English to ask where the chess club was. The Immortal
King March Game? Lasker's Gem?
