    Korchnoi. His games are a great study

    Dear heavenly blessed beauty, I have been thinking about your elegant comment and am in awe. That deep gaze in your eyes, your perfect smile, all of your features just seem to all come together so well, almost angelical in a sense I suppose, complimenting your already gracious comment. The reason I am writing this is to let you know that I think I have found the most beautiful woman to grace us with her presence on this website, and I am of course talking about you. I know this might mean absolutely nothing to you, and you probably get many of these types of texts and in real life BUT please understand that I am being as genuine as ever when I say that you are the ultimate dictionary definition of perfection, and if one day God were to bestow upon me a woman as beautiful as you, I would be forever grateful. I can tell by your words that your inner beauty is forever divine, sculpted from the hands of Aphrodite herself. The amount of elegance and purity you possess will never be accurately portrayed in a mere sculpture even from the finest of stones. I hope that this message finds you well, I do not care if I get a response to this, I am just simply stating the obvious and had to let you know how I really felt.

    Somebody got a mop to clean up the drool?

    Mine are Suttles, Sokolov, Gligoric, and Karpov

    What, none of today's players are among anyone's favorites?

    Karjakin just played a wonderful technical win against Hou Yifan, and there are so many wonderful bright players out there now. Why must we look to the past for our favorites? 

    Who are your favorites at Wijk Aan Zee? For the World Championship? For the next 5 years?

    Well, funny post from "SmyslovFan"!

    I think each generation gets better and better in general. Top players today can beat the top players of 50 years ago.

    Masters of the past stand out more because they were rarer back then. Now everyone has a brother who is a GM.

    Well, there were lots of Carlsen supporters and I chose Chucky.

    When Ivanchuk isn't playing, I just want to watch the top players.  At Wijk aan Zee I want to see if Carlsen can put some distance between himself and the younger players coming up, and how Aronian and Anand fare.

    Not only do we see many of the all-time best players active right now, they play each other with unprecendented frequency.  The modern series of Super-GM tournaments is just outstanding.  And they are all on the internet!  It's a good time for chess fans.

    Yep, Marshall was a great player. He even managed to win ONE game out of 23 in his match with Capa!  Tongue out

    fischer and kasparov,but not carlsen

    ABF... anyone but Fischer... i am sick of hearing about him.  The guy was a racist nutbar and I hold zero respect for anyone like that.  I would say Karpov, just love his positional style.
