I vote for Stevie65.... he's chess royalty and no mistake.
Steve you are very popular, you might win!!! So far seeing who people have voted for, I am surprised that there are no votes for gollum
There is a guy in my town ,Roy Henderson ,he is totally crap at chess but is the best darts player I have ever seen
This pretty much says it better than anyone here ever can.
Sorry if it has been mentioned somewhere in this very long and popular forum.
"Chess Oscar is an international award given to the best chess player every year. The winner is selected by a poll of chess experts across the world, including Grandmasters."
It's Carlsen 2009, 2010, 2011 and no reason to think it wont be 2012 also.
Which means Kasparov wins currently with 11 awards.
Yes only that's if you make the assumption that the question implies "living best player" and not "current best player". I would think that since we are talking about living players, sense would suggest we also mean current best player. I am a great Kasparov fan but, if Carlsen and Kasparov were to play today. Who would win? I think that is actual and the most pertinent question. Who is the world's current best player if they played today!! That should be the title of this forum. It's Carlsen.
Obviously Carlsen is the current best player. In terms of ever, Kasparov has the most votes.
Great. A discussion of the meaning of the word "is". Didn't we do that before?
If they played today, certainly Carlsen. But Kasparov is still young enough to regain his sharpness by playing a few tournaments over a year or two. Then, it would be interesting for a number of years, but I expect Carlsen would surpass him at some early point.
This is the same as another forum a months ago and your words are almost exactly word for word as my friend said a month ago. nice try.
Estragon list your references when you leave comments.
Ariel Mengarini would vouch for me, but unfortunately he is currently deceased. Or were you asking for credit references?
Now i know to only take cash from you and not credit.
I heard those almost exact words about a week ago.
Did the voices give you any stock tips?
Best player? More like most popular player be honest. That is who would win. Then to defend your choice by some stats.
The chess world is in chaos, when anand has only won 4 professionally rated games in the past 365 days.
I hope he wins 0 in the next 800 days. Nothing against him just his loyal supporters. They need to be brought down a notch or 2.
So do I ! lol
