Whitehat1963: <2/2 Grischuck is really on fire>
Winning two games in a row qualifies as "on fire"?
What about Fischer winning 20 in a row, then? What about Fischer ripping six in a row on the likes of Taimanov and Larsen, and however many (4? 5?) in a row on Petrosian? What do we call that, if two in a row is "on fire"?
Fischer was a blazing sun, a damned supernova, if Grischuk is "on fire." And I'm not even that much of a Fischer fan, but you have to respect his achievement.
By the way, does anyone know how many wins in a row are all-time bests for any of the following: Kasparov, Karpov, Anand, Kramnik, Topalov, and Ivanchuk? Or how about older players like Tal, Botvinnik, Capablanca, Lasker, Alekhine, Rubinstein, etc.?
