i dont think Bent Larsen at his best could win against Fischer
In match play Larsen got beaten badly by Fischer but in tournament games he won a few times. So what i intented to say was that Larsen at his best could win games in tournament play against anyone and for some years i belive he was among the most winning tournament players and even the mighty russian top players who dominated before Fischer came along often had problems against Larsen. Thats why i suggest Moro as his modern "doppelganger" - both never got the last step to become WC but both were/are fantastic and inspirering players.
Larsen was known for his fighting qualities and ablility to cause practical problems for his opponents, Moro is I think more known for his mercurial brilliance and sometimes paradoxical creativity. If there's a doppelganger for Larsen these days I'd perhaps think someone like Mamedyarov.
christiansen and fedorowic, they both love to taste local beer when travelling for games ;)
King Henry VIII = Mikhail Tal
Both loved to sacrifice their queens!
@varelse: +1 LOL
Btw, if Aronian doesn't win the upcoming candidates tournament, it's possible he might be the reincarnation of Paul Keres...
Jaan Timman = Larry (three stooges)
