   Feb-08-18 Robert James Fischer (replies)
todicav23: Walter Browne, who played both Fischer and Karpov, said "I think Fischer would have blown Karpov away!".
   Feb-07-18 Hou - Karpov Match (2018) (replies)
todicav23: <Sokrates: Well phrased <todicav23>. I haven't seen it quite that way, but you have made very convincing arguments and it seems likely that you are right: Karpov seemed to get weaker by the end of their matches. In their first match it was very physical, in the later ...
   Feb-06-18 Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian (replies)
todicav23: "Armenia honours its World Chess Champion Tigran Petrosian with a banknote. The likeness of the 9th World Chess Champion graces the new 2000 dram which has recently been issued for the first time in the country, as part of a new series of notes. " ...
   Jan-24-18 Rameshbabu Praggnanandhaa (replies)
todicav23: <alexmagnus: Qualifying for a single event doesn't make one a top player yet. Just as becoming a challenger in 2016 didn't make Karjakin world number two.> There was no accepted Rating System in 1958. "Qualifying for the Candidates" was probably the best criteria at the ...
   Jan-16-18 World Rapid Championship (2017) (replies)
todicav23: <fisayo123: Vishy again shows why he's among the all time great players in chess history.> Except that he is not!
   Jan-11-18 Gioachino Greco (replies)
todicav23: <Darth Stapler> Very good job! We need more facts about Greco.
   Jan-11-18 AlphaZero - Stockfish (2017) (replies)
todicav23: I think it is pointless to keep discussing about this "private" match. A fair match needs to take place in order to conclude that AlphaZero is clearly stronger than Stockfish. Both engines have to run on equivalent hardware. It is true that AlphaZero played some amazing games. ...
   Jan-08-18 Karpov vs Anand, 1998 (replies)
todicav23: <Petrosianic: Although all the world champions are great, I think most would say that Karpov's star was brighter than Anand's. You're right what you say about Anand beating his top two rivals in championship matches. That was a great achievement and absolutely cemented him as ...
   Jan-08-18 Fischer - Spassky World Championship Match (1972) (replies)
todicav23: <Didn't Iceland back around then have six grandmasters---more per capita than any other country?!> That was much later, probably when Fischer lived in Iceland, after 2005. In 1972 there were less than 100 grandmasters in the world. From wikipedia: "In 1972, there were 88 GMs
   Jan-07-18 Mir Sultan Khan (replies)
todicav23: <Howard: The Oxford Companion to Chess (1992) states that he may have been the greatest natural player in the history of chess.... ...though the late Larry Evans said the same about Capablanca in a mid-70's column.> Based on what? He was a top 10 player in the world at his ...
