Memorizing chess games is suggested by some chess coaches (see for example "Cool Training Tip, Number Eighteen") as a method for improving the chess muscle. The Guru has decided to give the method a try.
Which games would you suggest?
Morphy vs The Duke will be my warm-up game. Short and Sweet! Some 17 moves of mostly fireworks.
Fellow Chess blogger, James Stripes, recently posted some interesting quotes on memorizing chess games.
GM Rashid Ziyatdinov states the following, according to James, in his book GM-RAM:
"If you know just one of the important classical games, you will be able to become a 1400 level player, know 10 games and you will be 2200 level, know 100 and you will be 2500."
