omg you deleted a comment
OMG that's horrible! Why would he do somthing like that?
For studying Capablanca because he has that cute playing style and thinking process. He said "white wins in one move" when looking at a position then placed the king all the way over the other side of the board to demonstrate an unstoppable plan. Big plan = convert a passed pawn little plans = things that make that more viable such as spreading out the opponent's defense, improving piece positions by offering exchanges that would lead to hopeless (for the opponent) pawn endings, etc.
valsese1 is evil is why
Robert James Fischer and Mikhail Tal
Only 1 right?.. Fischer then.
I assume the OP is talking more about the personalities of the GMs than anything else, not how they performed on the board, so with my restricted knowledge, I suppose it's Capablanca, or, among the living ones, Anand (with Radjabov as an alternative choice).
can be googol of favorite gms.well the world population is less than googol so any amount of favorites
Akiba "The Human Fly Swatter" Rubinstein
Robert Jamas Fischer
Anand or Nakamura
why anand and nakamura over magnus
this is about your favourite GM not the best. Svidler and Ivanchuck are both great.
Fischer, Kasparov, and Carlsen. I also really like Morphy even though the title GM didn't exist back then. If it was around back in his day I think he would have been though.
Capa was a GM??????????????
By some accounts, in the St. Petersburg 1914 chess tournament, the title "Grandmaster" was formally conferred by Russian Tsar Nicholas II, who had partially funded the tournament. The Tsar reportedly awarded the title to the five finalists: Emanuel Lasker, José Raúl Capablanca, Alexander Alekhine, Siegbert Tarrasch, and Frank Marshall.
