    who is the best attaking player in the world.

    Do you mean currently? 

  • #3

    'is' would surely mean currently. 

    However, if you do not mean it, Alekhine was called the master of attack.

    shirov!

  • #5

    No.all past and present

  • #6

    A matter of taste. Alekhine, Tal, Stein, Kasparov are all strong candidates.

    Alekhine was brilliant, but for me Kasparov just edges it. Fischer wasn't bad either. Here are some of my favourite games by each:

    What did Fischer play?

    Oh bother, I forgot Tal as well...

  • #9

    And Stein...

  • #10

    My personal preference is Tal, simply because I cannot properly understand what the hell he was thinking when uncorking his stunning tactical combos. Sort of a primitive chess engine, certainly weaker than an angine in absulte terms, but surely enough more innovative and unpredictable... Tongue Out

    Stein was superb too, although his tactics had a certain inherent amount of logic- unlike Tal's, who was pulling rabbits out of the magician's hat at the most unexpected moment.

    Shit that puzzle was awesome. I made the bishop move thinking I want to make this move for some reason, and then of course i realized the trap. Great game.

    what happens if f*e6, Q*e6+... i cant see a mate...

    Q*e5 will kinda leave black helpless but is there is a more direct tactic?

  • #13

    One of Alekhine's now.

    Alekhine to win.

  • #14

    @ attack10, I'm not sure if there is something more direct, but with a weak king and White having 2 pawns and the 2 Bishops Black is dead anyway.

    Sometimes Anand gives players a chance to win. You were one of the lucky few. At least you spotted the mate.
