Svidler is more seriously underrated than Ivanchuk. After all, he has won several Russian and European titles and just finished 3rd ahead of Ivanchuk and Aronian in the 2013 Candidates. He has a plus score against Carlsen and just won a great game!

And yet, people can only talk of Ivanchuk! Peter Svidler is underrated, at least by people on this site.

ofc svidler is massivley underrated, but Ivanchuk is top player for 20 years and people only think about him losing. But i agree definetly Svidler is a candidate

I would much rather see Svidler then Carlsen playing Anand.

Carlsen is probably overrated. I would say Good players that are about 2700 but are overruled by magnificent players like Carlsen or others. Who do you think is better Carlsen or Kasparov?

im not a Kasparov fan but i would say Kasparov by far, i mean i know to little about chess but it seems to be he brought so much new compared to Carlsen. But i probably havent watched enough Carlsens games though to compare

Yeah Carlsen Lost on the last round of the candidates tournament. He still won but losing like that is a bad sign.

Suvel

not sure about forever

Kramnik lost too. They were both under a lot of pressure, while their opponents could just play their best chess relaxed.

Suvel

yea but carlsen lost 2 of his last 3

peruh

Boris Spassky, with only 2690 at his best, when nobody could defeat him in a match. Similar to a very good player today.

 Smyslov. He is second best all time only to Karpov.

World's most underrated player is obviously Ivanov. He beat Houdini 10-0!

Carl Schlechter.
