Ossimitz's Chess Pages
Lots of annoying pop-up ads here, but lots of free
games to choose from. Ossomitz likes to "annofritz"
his games (using Fritz to annotate). Especially valuable
is the Games Collections from Books. See
also this Ossimitz page.
An interesting interface that allows access to a wide
range of games.
Lots of downloads here, both new and old.
Generally offers the easiest-to-find PGN files of

Many CB and PGN databases with annotations. Mostly
older and historical selections.
Games from Convekta
A great set of files to download.
A good source of game downloads in various categories,

there was some accessible content and we can hope
he will make the necessary repairs.
Online at Hechiceros
Great Java viewers categorized by opening.
A good collection of links to archives, focusing on
the Pittsburgh site.
You can download games from the International Email

interesting games, but you have to wade through the

somewhere at this site to download.
Even though it is hard to be a "Fischer fan"

good content. To demystify the man, visit his personal

our nostalgic memory of 1972.
