Maybe an average player. Chess is one of the best games for promoting inner peace. I love the quiet.

In the history of chess in the last two hundred years, certain players stand out. For example, Steinitz, Alekhine and Fischer, whose lives cover the years 1836-2008.

As you can see by the following timeline, Alekhine's life overlaps slightly with the other two:

Steinitz 5/14/1836 to 8/12/1900
Alekhine 10/31/1892 to 3/24/1946
Fischer 3/9/1943 to 1/17/2008

The list of famous (or not so famous players, is an ongoing project, I have tried to include as many of the great players as possible, but I know that many are not on my list yet, and if you see someone that needs to be added, say so on my forum below and I will add them even though, perhaps, this list is already long enough.

I add players that I like as well as the notable ones, there are many child prodigies emerging who have not yet become a "household word").

I now have over 100 players listed, and I am sure there are hundreds more that I could include.

truepacifism: Also such idealists in the philosophical sense, religious if you prefer, tend to be idealistic in the optimistic, positive thinking sense, not letting the day to day troubles get them down, seeing a longer term bigger picture.

  truepacifism: Nabi Tajima of Japan died at 117 years and 260 days; she died yesterday and at the time of her death she was the oldest living person on the planet. Others have lived longer, but at the time of her death she was the world's oldest living person.

"Our admiration for Kasparov's chess skill is immeasurable, but the rest fills us with revulsion."

What about him is so revolting if I may be so bold to ask?
