    He is probably an Azeri.

    HE'S AN ARMENIAN FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes, of course - but I read pfren as suggesting that Bubble1997, not Aronian, is an Azeri (or has Azeri sympathies). However, as nameno1had said, simply hating all for what some or most do isn't right.

    Like Azeri star Teimour Radjabov said, when asked about Aronian: "The enemy is the enemy!"

    I don't know the context of his remark, sorry - what exactly did he mean?

    @ Fburton

    Radjabov is Azeri (which is largely Islamic), Aronian is Armenian, (which is largely Christian)

    So naturally, these two tiny countries have been at war with each other for the last 4000 years. Or so.

    Not sure how it all started. But I am certain the origins of this conflict involved goats. Somehow.

    I dont like Salo Flohr because he plays just like me but was more successful at it.

    Jeez, that Chessmaster 2000 thing kinda reminds me of this pinball machine (used to drive me nuts):

    And somehow Fischer's name never occurred to you?  Looks like you've got some reading to do.

    I don't like Fischer either, but for other reasons as well: He was a sore loser - when he lost to the King's Gambit, he published a bunch of stuff on how it was terrible.

    Impossible Islam nor Christianity any where near that old.

    Sure they are. They both claim to have begun with Abraham.

    Besides, I am sure the Azeri and Armenians were both fighting back then, too. Just with different names, different churches, is all.

    Islam started with Muhammad not Abraham and that is 1400 years old and Christ is only 2000 years old.

    Kramnik because his style is very boring.  The strange antics in the match vs. Topalov doesn't help.  (I don't really like Topalov either.)

    My favorites:

    Capablanca

    Karpov (on the Black pieces)

    Anand

    Anand,Fischer,Carlsen,Kasparov,Nacamura,Alekhine.......dislike them all !  Why should a handful actually know this game, while the rest of us strife to push pieces blindly around the board .

    I find it bothersome that someone would be jealous of someone else's success, but not desire their hard worek or dedication....it is like hating a guy because he won thelottery....shut up and buy a ticket....

    That's a good analogy.
