Happy birthday chesspub !!!

Thanks for the CBV file....

I admit I have now no time to browse all selected games but I did for the French and read with pleasure the well commented games...(and read too the Prie London system TN)

Sorry for other first class GMs whom I have often read chess books or play sometimes with OTB ...

Good luck for chesspub in next decade.

Could you provide a table of contents ?

Of the download file? It's only a text file with links to 14 games.

Not if you've only got dial-up at home and can't access at work!


Dial-up??!

Really? Wow. Does that still happen in certain parts of the world? Is the UK so backward still? That is actually quite shocking.

Yes, it does also exist in Suriname (and more specifically in Moengo). Perhaps it is no coincidence that we drive on the left side of the road as well - Willempie's compatriots did not care between 1815 and 1953.
At the other hand I just have downloaded the file in perfect state, took me less than a minute. So I am inclined to think that Bibs and Willempie have to look for the causes of TimS' problem somewhere else.
Congratulations for Tony and co and still many years after this one.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

Rumour has it that apart from using dial-up, they still drive on the wrong side there Shocked

Congrats to Tony and the writers! A bad product or lousy PR, wouldnt have gotten you this far Smiley
  

If nothing else works, a total pig-headed unwillingness to look facts in the face will see us through.

The cbv file is a standard ChessBase archived file and will work with ChessBase, ChessBase Light, Fritz, etc. We preferred this to a pgn file because of the ability to have a guiding text with links to the games - I think this adds a lot to such a game collection myself. Smiley

My file turned out to be a .cbv file so chessbase light worked just fine.

Anyone know how to read this? Mine comes out as a load of
little boxes with the occasional bit of English.

Woo hoo!  Smiley

Happy Birthday Chesspub  Smiley

I'm now using the openings I used 10 years ago  Cheesy
  

Those who want to go by my perverse footsteps play such pawn structure with fuzzy atypical still strategic orientations
