Kasparov is my all-time favorite. But 1A is Karpov, who is just a hair behind him. Number 3 for me was Paul Keres.
Karpov's reign between 1975-1985 is very impressive. What is even more impressive is that Karpov actually managed to up his game between 1986-1996 in his pursuit of Kasparov. Karpov could have lived off his reputation but he worked even harder at improving his game after he lost the title.
Kasparov? Anyone who can be world champion for the guts of 20 years commands respect.
Kasparov gets my vote by a whisker
Kasparov was only slightly stronger. That is why Karpov is the most underrated chess champion of all time!
hi i am a beginner in chess and don't know much about it. however i was a witness between kasparov v karpov matches during the 90s era and since i was a dumb ass then i associated maybe wrong or right with the then political upheavals of USSR dismantling. kasparov being the revolutionary and karpov representing the older or order. anyway we seem to associate apparent dumb ass things all the time to get a sense of it all. anyway that era was over and thank god computers have replaced humans in at least difficult tasks and liberating them. so humans can play and play and play chess as long as they wish
I wonder what Karpov and Kasparov think of each other?
I like Kasparov, no doubt, not so much his character, tough. But at the moment my vote goes to Karpov. I Love his, quiet, but deadly moves..
I like Kasparov more.
In a recent interview Nakamura commented about Kasparov which at the time of the interview was either coaching or assinting Nakamura in his training. Nakamura said "Kasparov is all about playing the absolute best move at any position". In response to the OP, I can't separate the two, chessplayers from absolutely another planet, or galaxy if you like. Cheers.
