    1. Kasparov (awesome)

    2. Karpov (if it wasn't for kasparov, karpov would have been the best player in his time. kinda sad when he was at his peak happened to be the time kasparov came in)

    3. Fischer (I don't like him due to all the drama, but i have to admit great player)

    4. Carlsen (rising star!)

    5. Tal (dont know who to put for 5, but ive heard Tal is one of the greatest)

    The Capablanca, Karpov, Cram-nick, Carlsen lineage is pretty

    awesome.     Alekhine-Kasparov lineage and

    Morphy-Fischer lineage filled in the tactical cracks  and Tal

    went out of the box!

    needsablanket, Fischer first and Carlsen second?  I think a need for a blanket is the least of your worries!  :-)

    First, Fischer won very few strong tournaments, and his record pales in comparison to even Karpov.  Chess Life once published a letter from a guy who had compiled info for so-called Super Tournaments (with average ratings adjusted for era), and Kasparov won two dozen, while Fischer one exactly one!  Karpov won about a dozen, as I recall.  Tal hypnotized players, Fischer made people ill, and Kasparov made his opponents pee their pants!

    Regards,

    He was really good, but he had this weird opening system. Played f3 and then moved the king to f2 or something like that.
