    kasparov cause hes a sore loser and was unfair to quite a few players. 

    FIDE cause of how unfair they were to Susan Polgar so much so she quit competitive chess.

    I hate Rybka because people think it's the best while Houdini is the best. It also got banned and all the stuff...

    Dr. Siegbert Tarrasch for imposing rigid, mechanical, and uninspiring principles of play upon two generations of chess players while liberally violating his commandments in his own games.

    Surely enough Misha Tal, for a very simple reason: I never, ever understood properly the way he was moving his men.

    For the very same reason, he is also #1 on my list of the greatest players ever. Capablanca is a close second, although quite ironically, I can understand everything in Capa's play- I just cannot play like that myself...

    Me neither. :)

    I know a lot of people think so, but I humbly say not.

    Yeah me...its definately "Bent" Larsen.  And rumour has it that this player recieved his nickname "Bent" from all the wierd stuff he was pulling in the red light district in Copenhagen in the 70's.

    The guy's nickname was "Bent" and he was Copenhagen, which is, as everyone knows, pretty much the Bangkok of Europe.  Figure it out yourself.

    Smyslov - much easier to say than you made it :P I know what you mean about his play, but there was always deep thought behind what seemed like simple moves. Smyslov was a fantastic player (and I find is often under-rated today) but I - as I assume you do - prefer more aggressive, tactical players.
