    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.

     I've got to go with Al Kaline, too.

    Not only did he whip Capablanca, he was a great right fielder.
