By the way- Can i vote for myself?
Bronstein, Keres, and Carlsen.
Lasker,Capablanca,Tal and of course Anand
They've all been WC and my thought is Morphy(had he been born later), Rubinstein,
Sultan Mir Khan could have been close to it had he enjoyed playing the game, instead of playing it to please his master or follow his orders.
Polgar would have destroyed Keres! Keres couldn't wash her nylons
What's that got to do with washing nylons?
I always think of Bronstein, Keres and Spock.
How often was Polgar in the top 3 in the world? How often was Keres one of the top 3 in the world?
I played through Keres, and Polgar, games. Polgar's are more dazzling to me. But, I think Polgar would have been a world champion back then.
...so then, what does washing nylons have to do with chess?
you might just as well ask 'what has chess to do with washing nylons?'
@ Fezzik: Polgar is better than Karpov right now, if that's your criteria. I would rather make the judgement of how great a chessplayer is by playing through their games, and make an assessment based on my level of understanding in chess. I've watched threads citing rankings, ratings, and many other statistics. But to make a value judgement, on a question that requires one, the best way, in my opinion, is personal experience.
This game is s ocomplex you would not understand. Not many do, which is why the players went to a hospital for the insane instead of becoming the champion.
