    I loved all three games! Just seemed so satisfying to think "You can have this Queen. I dont need it".

    These 3 games are an inspiration for me and makes me think I need to study tactics more. I am very old school. If I lose the queen I lose the game. Even if it seems like the best thing is a queen sac my hands shake too bad to allow that to happen. Great games.

    Yes was looking at a few of Fox's games, taking a bit of gp advice and looking up the classics I got there from looking at Marshall, who seems to beat him up a lot, so decided to watch a few where Mr Fox wins. Fabulous

    I love R&B mates. They combine the elegance of the Bishop with the brutality of the Rook. Well played. Delightful.

    Hey Andy - wish I was the author of these games but I'm not. If you click on "headers" you can see the players in the games. I should have included this info in the thread title, sorry...
