    i am not a chess games member. any chance that you, or one of your friends, could send me the 95 of 100 games from s_ltis greatest g_mes? this saves me having to do it one by one.

    fyi, i have 88 to 92% of the games, but since this is first and formost a book game collection, i want the 90 i already have adjacent to the others, to show overlap.

    absent that, i will on my day off, put the web page adjacent to my database, and fill the few blanks.

    i made a gigantic list of classics in 2003 and used those 100 games.

    want a copy? i am adding gm ram now. thank you! i am following the book order rather than the date sort order. i assume Ziyatdinov has his reasons, all M.E. professor that he is!


    a t * y who dot theusual busine ss suffi x.

    thx, dk

    there are many errors and inaccuracies in the databases that you have referenced.

    please dont ask which, but so many, that i must compare to the book.

    i am fixing them in my file... dk
