What, disregarding the Soviet masters or Nakamura?
Racist? Against whom?? I simply give more credit to someone who made it on their own. I find that more remarkable. It is my opinion that Fisher had more natural talent than Nakamura (who I know and respect).
BTW I think Capablanca is a close 2nd. He might have been first, but he did not have the obstacles and conspiracies to deal with.
nakamura really achieved a lot
yup! he had a good foundation, but then took off from there. he is missing something in his training now to take the next big step. it does not seem he can win a match against most top players
Put all these great masters (who are at their prime strength) together and play 1 round of blitz, 5 minute chess and standard....who will come out on top?
fisher dominated his comtemporaries at a greater rate. Carlsen is getting there. Nakamura dominated the US, but when he went abroad, not so much.
well nakamura was still champion in fischer random
he has beaten aronian in the final, what is no small feat
i guess i am not up to date on nakamura's acomplishments.
I dont think players still making their stamp can really be part of the "all time greatest" conversations.
capablanca as he had a natural chess brain. the others just worked hard while he actually had the talent
I think the greatest ever was Garry Kasparov followed closely by Fischer
Far more interesting: Who was the worst player of all time?
Is still too early to call Magnus the best, yet.
Though history may well prove that correct.
10. Ruy Lopez
9. Paul Morphy
8. William Steinitz
7. Judit Polgar
6. Jose Capablanca
5. Magnus Carlsen
4. Jose Capablanca
3. Garry Kasparov
2. Vishwanathan Anand
1. Bobby Fischer
Vishy at 2? And no Tal?
