My Move ! If you play chess questions about grandmasters will always come up. Whose the best? Old masters verus modern players.I go w/ people like lasker, casbl. morphy and without a second thought, fisher ( best of breed). Why ? Let me give you three points.. boldness of play, originality and a dramatic flair. Today we see those who rely on book lines or moves played played over and over in the same positions. Greatness comes rarely and today we see little of it.
