    Hmmm I can't think of 10 games that stand out in my mind, I haven't really been playing too long...

    I really like:

    Korchnoi - Udovcic, October Revolution 1967
    Larsen - Spassky, USSR vs. the World (Rd. 2) 1970
    Byrne - Fischer, US Championship 1963-64

    Just games I've come across in various books, blogs, here, etc.
