i think that Morphy would of creamd Kasparov. Even do i am a huge fan
I was going to post a rant about "would of", but then I noticed the rest of your grammar was atrocious anyway.
is your greatest chess flaw
Well Joey, unless he replies in rhyme, I think we have him nailed on the Moral High Ground.
Will we now hear some tall Tal tales?
Tal has been known as the magician from Riga. He is known for his unorthodox ways of playing chess. A brilliant master who uses active pieces to mate his opponent. Kasparov, Fischer and Karpov often admitted they get confused of Tal's unique style in controlling the board. A risk taker, Tal most of the time sacrifices his minor and major pieces just to open up the defenses of his opponent king, thereby with effective calculations enable him to mate. His games are classical and exciting unlike the one presented by Yereslov which is quite boring and funny to analyze. Even at the brink of serious illness, he beat Kasparov. I admire this master and consider him as one of the greatest chess master together with Fischer of all times.
Durn. Never heard of him.
He was the world champion in 1960 I guess. Watch his famous games in you tube as narrated by Mato. Surely you will enjoy all his games.
Euwe was tall.
1960 was before my time.
Interesting that the clash of creative chess (Tal) and scientific chess (Botvinnik) ended with a win for Tal in the first WCC they played, and then a win for Botvinnik in the second. I think the Tal/Botvinnik WCC was one of the most interesting matchups because their playing styles were so different
Agree, Botvinil was able to take back the championship throne from Tal. Botvinik seriously studied Tal ways of playing before the second match whereas Tal just took it for granted enabling Botvinik to get back the title. Such a wonderful game they did. Marvelous and quite spectacular.
Really wish we'd had a rematch of Alekhine vs. Capablanca. Would be curious to know if Capa could have taken back the crown the way Botvinnik did with Tal
That's when I was born.

Then you're before my time!
Just don't repeat yourself!
Speak to us of the world of tomorrow, Batgirl. Do you have rocket ships instead of cars? Tell me that The Jetsons is now what life is like, I always hoped. I am too frightened to go outside myself.
Flying cars is one of those "visions of the future" which has been with us since the advent of the traffic jam, and thank our lucky stars it never came to pass.
See how many collisions we have with people driving in two dimensions, and try to imagine the chaos with a third dimension to navigate.
