UltimateCrusher2

Bobby Fischer was, by far

Pelican-Ninja

i agree with captain nightmare. Kasparov

Pelican-Ninja

but seriously. UC is the best in the world.

Kasparov lived in an era with computers, but in Fischer's time there were no computers. Yet, Fischer still showed great talent and amazing calculation and memory. This is why he is the greatest chess player, not Kasparov

His move were ingenious and radical, if not always correct

Capablanca since I can pretend we are very distantly related - plus he was great.

Huh? Why, Mark?

Ask ten people, get eleven answers... not a good question, cannot be answered objectively.

Paul Morphy: He trounced convincingly the best & brightest of his time.

Pulpofeira

Could be possible, then. By the way, we are sharing surname.

Surely Kasparov-he has achieved unachievable for others to this day.

Dunno bout the best but the worst were US players. They either went dingbat crazy or else posted stupid topics titled "who is the best?" incessantly.
