    Anand has been described by Lubomir Kavalek as the most versatile world champion ever, since Anand is the only player to have won the world chess championships in many formats including Knockout, Tournament, Match, Rapid and Blitz.

    So am I


    At least it's a place to start.  My wife is just learning how to play and my son is only 1 year old.  But I hope to teach them both everything I know about chess, which shouldn't take more than about 15 minutes.

    The old masters lack the strong positional understanding of the Chess players of the 21st century. Carlsen is is the most versatile player, playing absolutely everything including the KGA. I don't think Anand has tried that and Carlsen can play the slow positional struggles with the likes of Anand and Kramnik. The man is also on top of the ratings list at the moment and he has youth on his side.

    Botvinnik must be the best player. he beat all the best player at the time and was world champ for many years. then he trained 2 of the best young players of there days . Karpov and Kasparov its sad because a lot of young people just look at todays players. Anand is good but as got to go a long way in chess before he is called a great.also Kramnik.Topalov. andthe young Dane will also be there. we will see in the next year or two who comes out on top

    The question is posed in the present tense i.e. "is". Botvinnik has passed on, so fails to qualify.

     

    Anand seems to be the best at the moment, very difficult to beat in tournaments and untouchable in match-play.

    Agreed, Carlsen is the future but one year won't be enough.... he backed out of the current candidates cycle, so will have to wait a few years to get a crack at the title.

     

    p.s. Maybe we're talking about different people... Carlsen is Norwegian.
