<DiCaprio> lol

Also like the Mark Lindsey Arizona track, due to a bit of funk and an album cover that screams I'M FROM THE 1970s.

They don't make photos like that anymore.

<T. Boone Pickens> I'm relieved you are not afraid of China! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ah...

You've got the whole of Chess history to take into account .. but bear in mind ( no pun intended) .. a Baseball player from 1900 could walk right INTO todays game .. I've seem enough to realise this !

Yo <Travis> ! Well I'm gonna try and get back to ya right now ! I'm really just looking at your list as I type this ... so I'll use another post for a response.. which I'm indeed moving onto now ! lol

  harrylime: First off. Me and you are very, very similar in our chess perceptions upon what is indeed "Greatness" ..

I can see you've got all the players in there who I believe are set in stone in any top ten..

I can also see a bit of sentiment and emotion in there too .. which is only natural !

There is a strong line in chess history.. A NEW WORLD/AMERICAN line .. and the chessplayers straddling this line are essential top ten material ! lol Morphy,Capa,Bobby... I do believe these players are all linked .. And these players are EVERGREEN to ten .. just there.

Lasker HAS to be in there too.. As does Alekhine..These two are just too influential and too titanic to leave out of any top ten ..

Gazza HAS to be there.. His domination is equal to a Lasker or indeed an Alekhine..

And yes agree Steinitz HAS to be in there too ...Afterall ... He just changed chess.Changed the way we play chess.. changed EVERYTHING... turned it upside down (literally with his style lol )

That leaves THREE spaces Ooooop for grabs and you've gone for Botvinnik /Tal/Carlsen ...

Here is the potential for debate ! lol lol

Does Carlsen merit a place in an ALL TIME greatest chess top ten ? Yet ?

Tal. I love Tal .. But does he merit a place .. as above ? If Tal why not Pillsbury or Bronstein or Spassky or Petrosian or Krammnik or Anand ?

And finally our old friend Botvinnik ...

He ofcourse is MR SOVIET CHESS .. but he took over from Alekhine in a chess vacum at the start of the COLD WAR .. when politics and chess went together just like Mick n' Keeef in rock .. I'm not sure Botvinnik was better than Smyslov or Bronstein .. and Keres .. he just was the CHOSEN ONE for the Soviets ... for me that does'nt make him "great" ...

Same for me with Karpov ... too much contrived red carpeting going on in the background .Though there is a massive argument for including Karpov in ANY chess top ten .. I understand this.

  harrylime: Well <MR DJ> !

I'll be back with more on this to bore you silly ...

THIS IS A THREAT not a promise ! lol lol

For me it's Tal or Spassky

Botvinnik or Karpov..

scenarios !

  harrylime: My TOP TEN

1. Robert James Fischer
2. Paul Charles Morphy
3. Gary Kasparov
4.Jose Raoul Capablanca
5.Wilhelm Steinitz
6.Emmanuel Lasker
7.Alexander Alekhine
8....

Now I need to think ... lol easy up to now but now I can feel my sentiment and emotion creepin in which aint no good

  Travis Bickle: <harrylime: ..Botvinnik or Karpov..> Yo harry I like your list so far.. I had Petrosian & Spassky.. Then I had Smyslov & Bronstein.. lol I couldn't make up my mind.. So I settled with the List I made up...

P.S. I'd list Bronstein or Korchnoi over Karpov, Russia's golden boy. The guy who takes a Championship Crown without playing a lousy damned game! People like Spassky or other classy people would have refused the Crown until they worked out a Match with Fischer!

  Travis Bickle: <harrylime: Does Carlsen merit a place in an ALL TIME greatest chess top ten ? Yet ?> Iwas thinking the same thing but greatness is greatness! Magnus has won the WCC & defended it so that's good enough for me... Plus he's a natural born genius like Fischer. He's the Mozart of his era as was Bobby in his!

You invent me a TIME MACHINE ( H G WEllS )

  Travis Bickle: <User not found: How BRILLIANT is this?? This guy is a genius... John Lennon calls Paul McCartney https://youtu.be/gfAJakw36zE> Pretty funny Marky Mark!

Here's the making of Paperback Writer.. ; P

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzX...

P.S. Paul actually did chip his tooth riding a motorbike.. All the American girls who watched The Beatles do the song on TV wrote to the music mags, what happened to Pauly's tooth??? lol

Apr-26-17  User not found: Easy Trav.. I had to recheck about McCartney chipping his tooth because I was positive he did it In a car crash.. Yeah you're right, a moped. I just watched that and it's brilliant, absolutely brilliant I'm glad I found that Channel because he's a Beatles fanatic and knows what he's talking about as well as perfecting the Lennon impersonation, less so with McCartney but it's still very very good and funny af, lool.

This one is hilarious.. It's a comedy reenactment of the time that weirdo who looked like Kurt Cobain showed up at Lennons mansion, it was around the time of the Imagine recording sessions, do you know which bit of footage I mean? He invites him in for something to eat, the guy was saying Lennon wrote "Carry that weight" about him and John was blaming Paul, lol.. https://youtu.be/IQ-4bL-8mzQ
