Top 10 Best Chess Playersmunkee_linc97
The Top Ten
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
This guy is a genius. He makes moves that you never expect and he can read the board several moves ahead. Truly the greatest player of all time.
An incomparable will to win backed up by strategic, tactical, and technical brilliance. At his peak, Fischer, like Capablanca before him, was a peerless tower of chess strength.V 24 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
Ranked #1 throughout his career after winning championship till retirement in 2005.
Brilliant calculator and best ipening repertoir
Would defeat carlsen if both had same age due to superior preparation
Very good chess player and has very good tactics - ifgy
Very good player and very good moves - ifgy
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.
Capablanca could feel the chess
He was awesome
Magnus Carlsen is the best chess player. He is ranked number 1. - Wastexsas
Magnus Carlsen is the best player of all time.
Did this not get settled by a computer?

He's my favourite chess player cause of his attacking style. So wild and but has meaningful tactics
Can't even fully describe how different, amazing and weird style he had.
Best attacking player of all time
We are talking about attecking players. tal is number one.real beauty of chess is in the gamrs mikhail tal...
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
I and my paternal grandfather loves his tricks. my grandfather always plays in my tablet on the highest levels and wins the tablet

Double Bishop Sacrifice: Amazing!
Only Player who use "mind game"
He was champion for 27 years crushing 2nd place Kasparov who was world chess champion for 16 years
Why is this guy here? 10th place? U kidding me? - yanzchenthebest
Alekhine should be higher on this list - top 6 at least.
He's great! He's game made extra ordinary brilliant combination! - bishops
Alekhine should be number 1!
Only one who has better record against Kasparov
Every game is more interesting if vassily ivanchuk is one of the players
He should be higher on this list
How is he not number 1?
Very weird playerV 8 Comments
Botvinnik won a lot of games with tricky but not terribly deep tactics.
Best he will be world champion in 2018

Master of positional play,defeated botvinick and spassky
