The Capablanca, Karpov, Cram-nick, Carlsen lineage is pretty
awesome. Alekhine-Kasparov lineage and
Morphy-Fischer lineage filled in the tactical cracks and Tal
went out of the box!
needsablanket, Fischer first and Carlsen second? I think a need for a blanket is the least of your worries! :-)
First, Fischer won very few strong tournaments, and his record pales in comparison to even Karpov. Chess Life once published a letter from a guy who had compiled info for so-called Super Tournaments (with average ratings adjusted for era), and Kasparov won two dozen, while Fischer one exactly one! Karpov won about a dozen, as I recall. Tal hypnotized players, Fischer made people ill, and Kasparov made his opponents pee their pants!
Greatest: Kasparov, Lasker, Karpov, Steinitz, Fischer
Best: Kasparov, Carlsen, Aronian, Fischer, Karpov
prawneatsprawn was pretty good
It was going so well until 5. ARONIAN??!!
i like his style i think he is better than carlsen
Kasparov, Fischer, Karpov, Alekhine, Capablanca
Wasn't his first name Lenny?
Yeah, he is quite famous, really:
He was really good, but he had this weird opening system. Played f3 and then moved the king to f2 or something like that.
I'm not all that sure Kowalski was Irish...
I played this guy once back in 'nam
1. kasparov-dominated everyone but
2. karpov-tournament victories and title defenses against great players
3. botvinik-changed the way chess was played, iron will immense ability
4. Lasker- how long as champion? 27 years or so then immpressive results post championship era
5. capablanca- wow that man could play
