     When Spassky was asked, what does Chess mean to you, he replied, "Chess is my LIFE"...

     When Fischer was asked, what does Chess mean to you, he replied, "Chess is LIFE"... 

    It is sad when Chess becomes the only reason "LIVE/LIFE"..

    Kasprov went further and titled his book "How life imitates chess"

    Do you mean, Spassky, Fischer were sad? They were world champions. Fischer had many citizenships he could get. Iceland gave him citizenship because he has been a WC. Now we know Fischer was Icelander.

    They made thousands and millions of $$$$.

    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.

    Certainly some specialists are open minded...

    Yeah, this guy is the best.

    His mutation allows him to sometimes channel the power of the engine gods through his brain.

    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...
