You can just use chess.com, YouTube and Google to get a good list of some top players - especially by just looking up USCF or FIDE ratings. happy.png

I also compiled a huge list of chess player birthdays that you might valuable:

Well, you can always look here: https://www.chess.com/players for top players (that are still alive today).

Here are some that aren't alive:

Paul Keres, Vasily Smyslov, Paul Morphy, Bobby Fischer, Victor Korchnoi, Alexander Alekhine, Adolf Anderssen, Mikhail Botvinnik, Mikhail Tal, Frank Marshall, and a whole lot more!

Vera Menchik was a very cool player, despite having to fight just to get admitted to chess clubs (which were men-only in her day).  GM Judit Polgar is one of the all-time great attacking players.  GM Irina Krush just won her 8th US Womens' Championship and is quite a sparkling player.

GM Timur Gareyev set the world record for simultaneous blindfold games, and his accounts of doing it are absolutely golden.  (He said, as a stunt he wants to take a nap in the middle of the event and see if he could continue.  This blows my mind.)

ive heard about vera menchik from a article that chess.com posted on the real life beth harmon,

i also remember hearing about irina krush from the world vs garry kasparov chess match,

in which her moves were taken and played probably the most time

and if my brain isnt stupid and i remember in the garry kasparov vs the world game on the 10th move irina krush invented theory i think it was qe6 in the moscow sicillian which was probably in the maroczy bind

Capablanca is certainly in the list of best dead players if anderssen is. Emanuel Lasker , too.
