GM Vladimir Petrosian from http://blog.chess.com/SonofPearl/discover-your-russian-grandmaster-name
GM Eugenio Torre, the most famous chessplayer in my country
GM Fischer - as a GM. As a person, he was a real loser, and that's putting it very euphemistically.
As a player Kasparov, as an auther I like John Watsons books, and Lars Schandorffs two opening books.
Hey, what about Silman!
I've got to go with Al Kaline, too.
Not only did he whip Capablanca, he was a great right fielder.
I, also, have it on good authority that he invented the battery.
Plus he looked remarkably like comedian Will Durst:
probably a tie between garry kasparov and sam shankland .
Who is Sam Shankland
for now, i am rooting 4 GM Sergie Karjakin...
