Carlsen was the new mozart and Capablanca was the old one. Doesn't matter on who is or not.
Yeah, and we don't need a certification institute to decide.
I wonder how "mozart" they really have become.hmmm....
Who knows the criteria here? What does it take to be the Mozart of chess? You need to chase women like Mozart??
Sometimes it becomes funny when we give titles like that when It could also be "The Leonardo" of chess or "Michaelangelo" of chess or "Sebastian" of chess. Any idea why the title "Mozart" ?
So the criterium is effortless brilliancy.? I would think Aljechin, Carlsen, Fischer are candidates then. Capablance was not creative enough.
Capablanca most often than not plays for simplicity. In his book "Last Lectures" he has emphasized on the fact that when a clear win is seen no need for other brilliancy continuation is needed. I think Capa is a practical player. Mozart of chess huh? then who is its Leonardo?
What were Fischer's last words?
"Nothing is more soothing than a human touch" ? (are we talking about his death bed words?)
"I could really use a shave."
What the Mag said.
Capablanca was not creative enough.
"My doctor's a what!?"
"Well, at least now I'll finally get some rest. I mean, it's not like they're gonna exhume me or something."
This is not going to last to 50 comments where players start to insult each other. Or refute each others point to where they are both wrong. lol
