    The question of assessing and ranking world champions always revolves around the old "who is the greatest?" point. It's fairly obvious that the current WC is not the all-time greatest, but just where does he stand in that small club of world chess champions?

    tweet from Pogonina: "In terms of play Anand is in no way weaker than Kasparov, but he’s simply a little lazy, relaxed and only focuses on matches (C) Kramnik"

    I also think Anand is one of the greatest - for me some of his games sparkle

    with a mathematical perfection.

    Any against the top rateds? Or just sparklers against those who facilitate sparkling at the board?

    Not as great as Kasparov, Fischer, Karpov, Alekhine or Capablanca. Greater than Smyslov, Kramnik, Euwe, Petrosian...

    Topalov specifically.

    I wish I could learn the game perfectly so that I can beat him one day and the title remains with the country. For that I would have to become same as "Anand = The Perfectionist"

    There is no way Anand is greater than Petrosian!!

    As to Kramnik it is open to debate- for me Kramnik is better.

    Petrosian ftw!
