Yes i have the King - Morrison games to post as well.

In my opinion supporting our champions is unrelated to sharing information. I would love to see games posted live as they happen. Based on the donations I've seen from the few years the store has been up, I doubt that very many people donate just to get the games. Said another way, I think the same number of donations would still come even if there was no incentive. The exception to this is probably the annotated games from the National tournaments, but annotated games in general are a different story.
I'm not saying that charging for the games is wrong because its definitely time consuming to compile all the handwritten games to an electronic format. Which is another reason I don't thank Jim Loy enough. He has given many hours of his time to provide all of us PDN versions of thousands of games, all for free.

King-Morrison games are available here http://www.usacheckers.com/show_game_st ... nt=2006wtm
and the King-Kondlo games here http://www.usacheckers.com/show_game_st ... nt=2008wtm

Unfortunately my weekend project of putting a new door in my garage ended up taking most of the weekend instead of the few hours I thought it would, so I haven't been able to re-organized the games on this site yet.

While entering WCM 2009 games into electronic format, I ran briefly all games through Kingsrow. it looks at first glance that I missed 8 or 9 wins (!!!), and Ron missed 1 win. Kind of record :lol: :lol: :lol: Jim Loy and Dr. Beckwith should have alot of fun by annotating this !

Old champions should turn around in the graves if they have a chance to look at these games :lol:

ALL MY GAMES (AMG) project goes smoothly, but it should take approximately 18-24 months. I plan to add very short comment to each game (still guessing what would be the total number of games), and diagrams if something interstinbg happened in the game. Number of pages will be around 600 with big format (8.5 x 11).

Regards,

Alex
