Re: Morphy...Which Opera

Indeed Geoff - those types of books are rather more expensive than the Reinfeld reprints!!πŸ˜‚. Worth every penny in my opinion.
Anyone can submit material for Winter's site. I have a couple of my 'discoveries' on there.

Great stuff - good to see a couple of names of people I've played!
Thanks mate! Appreciated. Amazed at the number of names that I recognized one I started going through the reports given that I didn't start playing until 1975ish. Especially Theo Grove was a big surprise.
