You guys are funny...up there with the world champ, Larry the Cable Guy.
I really like this chess crowd, much better to be around than poker players.
So it's settled? Magnus Carlsen WILL BE the world champion the next time around, i'd say at 23 years old - i'll take this young phenom versus the field.
yeah i only see anand or gelfand getting any better and carlsen is only going to climb so my two bets on who will be in the next wcc match will either be carlsen or aronian and they will be playing Anand
I'm an Ivanchuk fan myself, but he's never been a match player of the quality of his tournament play.
I've always thought the quality of his play is top notch, maybe better then Carlsen. He just doesn't have the temperment to be a champion as his emotions get in the way of his calculation. He doesn't have the same talent as Carlsen, cool and precise, but what he does have is an unmatched imagination.
There is no other player in chess history who has so many original and beautiful ideas. All the top GMs have contributed to opening theory, Ivanchuk has changed endgame theory more than once!
Of the current top GMs, my favorite is Aronian.
ok, guys, this question might be way off topic, but i still have not found any article which answers this question in details: why and how did Ivanchuk gets called the MAD GENIUS?
