alexmagnus: As for 100% TPR - do it with my method - pretend the player scored 0.25 points less than the 100% score (f.x. 5.75/6 if the streak was 6 games). This will give you the minimal rating for which 100% was the most expected result.

alexmagnus: As for approaching him in 1985 and saying something about his future chess longevity, my words would be - "over 15 years later you'll still win a big tournament" (Biel 2001. By the way, is this the only case of someone winning a tournament of this caliber when aged 70+?)

  alexmagnus: As I wrote in Stockholm Interzonal (1952), it is the earliest Interzonal (and thereby the earliest world championship related event) from which there are players surviving to the day - Averbakh, Taimanov and Matanovic.

Since Averbakh and Taimanov qualified for the Candidates from that Interzonal, the Zurich Candidates (1953) is the earliest Candidates event with currently living players (with no other Candidate than those two living).

The earliest World Championship match with a surviving player is Petrosian - Spassky World Championship Match (1966), of which Spassky is living.

The earlist World Championship match with a surviving winner is then, of course, Petrosian - Spassky World Championship Rematch (1969)

Finally, the earliest World Championship match from which both participants are living is Karpov - Korchnoi World Championship Match (1978)

  alexmagnus: ... As for the earliest World Championship related events with <all> participants surviving to the day, here it gets tricky.

The earliest WC match with all players surviving is, as mentioned above, Karpov-Korchnoi 1978.

The earliest Candidates event with all players surviving is the 1994-95 tournament for the Classical world championship.

But what is full WC cycle which had any "bigger than Candidates + WC match" format (including FIDE KOs) with all players surviving to date?

Incredibly, one has to op to the time <after> the Split to find such one. To be exact, the 2010 cycle (all players of the 2007 World Cup are living, as well as Topalov and Anand).
