Probably a toss-up between Capablanca and Sultan Khan for me. Tal would get show just for the sheer brilliance of his best sacrificial attacks.
I wonder if Spassky ever said that chess was his life, as is claimed above. That sounds much more like Korchnoi.
We all dedicate ourselves so something. You can make yourself a slave to not burning any bridges and being average at many things...
...is specialization really so sad ? If life had no specialists, many things would be far less special.
There's a big difference between being a specialist and being myopic.

Yeah, this guy is the best.

Some players find Tal's games exciting, I don't.
A computer that can't lose? Now THAT is fascinating!
Can't wait to see Houdini3's ask being kicked.

You need to go over more Tal games, learn more about chess, or both
In my opinion Tal was the most talented player at least of the 20th century... However shame he was not so hardworking as others...
