Message:
the best is Fischer's My 60 Memorable Games. Alekhine's two-volume set is also very good, and I hear Kasparov's recent monumental set (My Great Predecessors), which will probably span at least 3 or 4 volumes, will be excellent.

Fritz 7

Message:
In the openings books and in the "fritz" column 2nd from the left. I only ever have one different number from zero for every opening which means fritz keeps making the same opening over and over. I would like to have more numbers there, is there anyway i can sortof custom make it. There by chosing the numbers for each column myself.
thank you for your time
