    Lol, really? You need general knowledge!!

    Btw, how many world chess champions you know?

    I guess, you know about 3-4 only in the last 10 years.

    There are a lot, you know!

    Google, !! There are world championship matches before you were born.

    Being physically attractive means you spend more time grooming your appearance. 

     

    I'd take the strongest WCs and flip that list around to get this one.

    (JK... but you get my point)

    WCh tournaments you mean. Ponomariov, Khalifman, Kasimdzhanov, Topalov.. none of these won in the traditional match format. They won FIDE knockout tournaments for FIDE's world championship title until the title was unified with Kramnik-Topalov. Not saying they aren't legitimate champions in their own right, at least not by FIDE standards. But they didn't win a candidate's tournament and the championship match.

  • #15

    kasimdzhanov? never even heard of the guy. so we had a "World champion" who at his peak wasnt even top 10 in the world lol.

    im sure the guy is a beast though, no disrespect but that's just bizarre.

    Not really, no...

    I think it was back in the days when Topalov had won the FIDE World Championship that the Bogo debate started... The argument was that if you considered Topalov a World Champion you also had to consider Bogo World Champion since he had won a match against Euwe in fhe 1920s. Now, that match was not considered a World Championship by anyone, neither FIDE nor anyone else, and for example isn’t even listed as one of his greater achievements in Bogo’s long list of victories at Wikipedia.

    It was first when the discussions started if Topalov had a claim to the title in 2005 that the two player match between Bogo and Euwe was brought up. Back in 2005 many saw Topalov’s claim as serious, and also Russian top players and friends of Kramnik like Svidler and Kosteniuk stated that Topalov was a legitimate World Champion. Back then Kramnik had no organisation, no qualification, and the top players hadn’t been interested in participating the last time it existed some sort of qualification for the ”breakout title” back in 2002. 

    But Bogo World Champion because of winning a two player invitational not related to any sort of World Championship according to anyone, no :-)

    Didn't FIDE organize a WC match between him and Euwe?

  • #20

    Edit: I agree. But the other issue is a mess anyway.
