Here's my top 10 of my favorite players:

1-Tal (Deep vision, amazing attacker and great complex games)

2-Morphy(Opening genius and ultimate chess mind)

3-Nezhmetdinov (Nice attacking combinations; he's the Morphy of the 20th century. His style is insane, but there's not enought games of him!)

4-Fischer (A right middle of tactics/positions with an incredible vision. That's how chess should be played)

5-Bronstein (He's always in some weird positions and got many amazing ideas. Nice sense of attack. I love the way he moves his pieces)

6-Kasparov (Very versatile, precise and aggressive. Owning everybody with class!)

7-Velimirovic (Very deep sac a la Tal and I really like his openings)

8-Marshall (Everything for attack and initiative! Great tactician and not afraid to take some risks)

9-Euwe (What a style! Majestuous! Impressive tactics and great attacker. Pretty rational mind)

10-Nakamura (Probably the coolest chess player on this present era. Not afraid to enter in some dangerous positions and to try something different. His style reminds me Bronstein and Short)

Special mentions to:

Polgar (So much aggressive and some incredible moves)

Stein (Very interesting player. The right middle between imagination and rationality. Incredible defense for an attacker)

Emery Tate (Nice attacker and impressive tactician.)

Nunn (Some amazing games)

Keres (A well balanced attack and defense. Many nice attacking ideas)

Alekhine (Strange style and some nice tactics)

Diemer (For the BDG!!)

Oll (Awesome games!)

Morozevich (Not afraid to trigger something)

Anand (Remind me Fischer; classical and sharp)

   Apr-16-15 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
DrChopper: Nakamura has won a game recently this year vs Topalov. He has won some games in 2014 and 2013 vs Hao, Svidler and Ivanchuk. He has won vs Aronian too but Aronian has defeated him too and lot of times in the last 3 years. I think vs Carlsen and Aronian, it's them who impose their ...
   Apr-13-15 Nakamura vs Onischuk, 2015 (replies)
DrChopper: Marshall was more straightforward that any player ever, always going for threats and attack. He liked very much some aggressive gambits. Marshall had a hard time against the top players of his time (Lasker, Capablanca, Alekhine, Tarrash, Tartakower) but was very effective against ...
   Feb-14-15 Zurich Chess Challenge (2015) (replies)
DrChopper: He has lost more than 10 times vs him. At the end, all those wins by Carlsen has a big effect on the elo of both players.
   Apr-06-14 Tal vs H Skuja, 1965 (replies)
DrChopper: Rd3 seems to stop the threat.
   Apr-03-14 Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1978 (replies)
DrChopper: Maybe but he decided to not fight vs a so easy prey. Anyway, interpret whatever you want but we will never know what Fischer was really thinking and feeling.
   Mar-31-14 V Neverov vs A Mastrovasilis, 2005 (replies)
DrChopper: What about 73.Qxd3?
   Feb-08-14 J Withers vs E Williams, 1846
DrChopper: 21.Bxh6 Rxh6 22.Rxh6 Kxh6 23.Qh3 win.
   Jan-19-14 Karpov vs Timman, 2013 (replies)
DrChopper: Well it's true that I have a huge preference on aggressive/tactical players, but if someone want to be better it's a must to study Karpov's games to have a better position and technique (it's the core of the game). Like I said before he doesn't take risks but he was always going ...
   Jan-13-14 Tata Steel (2014) (replies)
DrChopper: Yeah but some of you were disappointed because it was sure that Gelfand would have it. Chess is a sport with a lot of errors.
   Dec-27-13 Fischer vs Geller, 1967 (replies)
DrChopper: @Woodthrush I think there's a lot of ways to interpret it. Yours is fine too and other authors too. My opinion is based on which players are at the top and which kind of games and opening they play.
