    I agree. Garry, MVL, Fischer, and also Nakamura are all on my top list

    I'd say a tie between Carlsen and Vachier-Lagrave, the former the most solid and the latter the most brilliant.

    Awonder Liang

    You heard it here 1st folks.

    Liang achieved his three grandmaster norms in the Continental Championship in San Salvador in 2016 and in the span of two weeks in the Spring Chess Classic in St. Louis and the Chicago Open, both in May of 2017. The official date that Liang earned his titled should be May 29 (as we understand it), the day the Chicago Open concluded.

    Liang's newest record is one of many in his short career. He is the youngest USCF expert ever, was the youngest master ever, was the youngest international master ever, and is the youngest player ever to have defeated an international master and a grandmaster.

    Very impressive indeed.

    This 12 year old Indian boy Pragga is very impressive and might break Karjakin's record for youngest GM ever.   He has a plus score against Awonder Liang.

    Pragga vs Liang in the WC of 2022

    It's peculiar not many give Karjakin the credit he deserves.

    But only 1 here has said Aronian. Yes, Karjakin and MVL have been doing well. Mamedyarov is also on a roll
    but Aronian won probably the strongest tournament this year which is Altibox and has recently won in both segments of Saint Louis. Not to mention he did quite well in Sinquefield.

    The blitz segment was won by S. Karjakin.
