Indeed, trysts, Steinitz paid the price for his shameful chicanery in competitive chess. Everybody from Bill Gates to Thomas Edison sued him for theft of intellectual property. He was wiped out financially! Last I heard, he was living in a shelter for has-been chess players in Iceland. Too bad, too. He looks like such a nice guy in that picture......
Do you really have to say "Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian"? Is the middle name really necessary? Is that so we don't confuse him with Tigran Petrosian the district attorney? Or Tigran Petrosian the Republican?......Just kidding! I like Petrosian. But I take umbrage! You just ignored my suggestion: Zukertort. Recently discovered evidence indicates that, during their 1886 match, Steinitz had access to Rybka, or some other sophisticated chess engine. This clearly invalidates the contest, making Zukertort the World Champion, by default. Here's the device Steinitz' used, a state of the art gizmo for it's day, to secure his illegitimate victory over Zukertort:
Actually there is another chessplayer by the name Tigran Petrosian who is also a GM.
That's not how you spell "Casablanca". And it's a city, not a chess player, checkmateibeatu. I'll vote for you, even though I'm busy. Anand.
Yes, it is well known that one of the best players of all time is, indeed, NOT actually a chess player.
Capablanca is not a human. He is the chess machine!
Speaking of machines... (I got this from chessgames.com)
It's hard to believe that after 17...Qxg3+ white hangs on for another seven moves! Anyway, I thought that guy in trysts's post #25 was Nikola Tesla, the electrical wizard of the 19th and early 20th century. But then I realized.....it's Al Pacino!
Here is my favorite world champion.
Kosteniuk she lives in Miami
Second choice is Bobby Fischer
Hey, DENVERHIGH, I'm trying to concentrate here!......Well, I think joecv123 began this topic expecting a serious discussion about past and present World Chess Champions. But of course, it has quickly devolved into a libidinous free-for all complete with bikini-clad beach bunnies and exotic pole-dancers.....Hey, wait......where's the exotic dancers?
You are right! It's Al Pacino playing Tesla in the remake of "Casablanca", entitled, "The Outsider". Tesla is a bar owner in Cambodia, forced to play russian roullette against Ingrid Bergman for the right to leave Earth. Of course, Nick loves her and refuses to allow any form of electrical current to get in the way of that love. So he drinks himself stupid, robs a bank, and gets a sex change. It's a family film, but it does have nice costumes!
Napoleon's lack of chess development explains Waterloo's outcome. lol
you didn't even show her most "flattering" picture. :P!
Hey, DENVERHIGH, I'm trying to concentrate here!......Well, I think joecv123 began this topic
He didn't say that only MEN champions.
All the chess champions were not listed with a photos by joecv123. I am not making light of it.
But Women were also World Chess Champions.
What is wrong with posting a photo of one of the world champions which is my favorite.
Kosteniuk is a womans world champion.
I also mention a man, my favorite is Fisher.
I thought of Polgar but I didn't choose her.
Why do you have to concentrate, this is not a chess problem. Both are my choices of favorite players.
Spassky and Tal.
Vera Nebolsina (b. 1989), World Champion U20 Girls 2007:
Ana Matnadze, U10 World Champion in 1993:
OK, and then Korchnoi among the Senior World Champions :-)
she looks pretty,yes sir she will be also my favorite champion aside from fischer.
