Top 10 Best Chess Playersmunkee_linc97
The Top TenXW
If all he had to do was play chess, his placement at the top of the list would be unquestioned. Imagine how many brilliancies he would have demonstrated had he continued competitive chess at the top level for the rest of his career - his contributions to our understanding of the game would have been immense. Fischer's issues away from the board are a tragedy to the chess world as well as an embarrassment to his legacy, but don't let them distract you from his undeniable, overwhelming ability to win chess games.
An absolute genius. not only his moves but also his sacrifices
He's the ideal person, taught us to to become unorthodox...
He represents serendipity in chess.V8 Comments
While I have an immense amount of respect for Fischer and Morphy as players, my vote has to go for Kasparov. Not only a dominant force in Chess for 30 years, Kasparov has continued to grow interest in chess after his retirement. Kasparov has been able to balance his brilliance in chess with other aspects of his life. His voice in opposition to Putin makes him one of my personal heroes, regardless of his chess skills. - ignoble
Worlds greatest chess player and always will be.
He was born for chess no doubt
Even the admin mentioned him in one of his blogs! - booklover1V2 Comments
Very often I play through one of Capa's games and after 20-30 moves come to the realization that his opponent is totally lost for apparently no discernible reason. It's comforting to know that GM analysts have the same problem.V3 Comments
Bobby Fischer was brilliant, but come on. Karpov at his prime vs Fischer at his prime is a blowout. Karpov's positional understanding would overwhelm Fischer.
If he could get kasparov out of his preparation more often kasparov would have never become the champ
