    ...games where you've resisted the urge to develop any pieces. Here's one of mine from the blitz room. Didn't intend it this way, but sometimes your opponents will send you down weird avenues...



    Has anyone got a link to that crazy Diemer pawn move game?

    This is my favourite non-development demonstration. My opponents position after move 16 is amazing. It is one to show students how not to play.

    How not to play indeed, but I want to see heroic or even sound examples of pawn pushing rather than development. Who's got something for me?

    Here's another famous one. I think this was the recordholder before that Diemer game:

    Frank James Marshall vs Hyman Rogosin

    Fantastic game! Thanks for posting that one.

    At risk of hijacking my own thread I don't think I've ever seen a Marshall game I didn't like. Is there a decent book on Marshall that anyone can recommend?
