    I vote for Vishy Anand. He is very resourceful & good mix of attack & defence. He dominated speed chess for a long time. He has won world championship against very strong opponents & in different conditions.

    Bobby Fischer. He always attemted to win, even though he played with blacks. He got 19 consecutive victories against the best players of the time, and reached 100 points more than the second of the time. He loved chess above all things; even he said: "chess is the life".

    Fischer- he brought the game back into the limelight again for most. He challenged fundamental thought and virtually created chess960. It isn't just about how a player plays- it should be also about impact and none have even come close to him. And- he'd beat them all anyway! LOL

    end game is not boring...lothrail...is the normal ending of a chess game well played...unless an opponent make a serious mistake in the middle game all games will be decided in the end game...that what my choices are Capablanca and Fischer..great end games players
