I am a Chilean engineer. My biggest hobbies are numismatics and chess history. My favorites players (no particular order) are Tal, Spassky, Morphy, Bronstein and of course Kosteniuk :-) I believe the Fischer of 1970-1972 was the strongest player in chess history. I also rank Petrosian and Spassky among the greatest ever and hope that with time passing they will be given their rightful place in History.

KasparHauser: Tal's achievements when he was healthy can hardly be overrated: back to back wins in the USSR Championship of 1857 and 1858 (being USSR champion in those days is in an altogether different league than any other championship), cruising through the Interzonal, a convincing win of

KasparHauser: <> It is amazing how untrue or biased info on this matter continues to pass. You should read the excellent book by E. Winter "Kings, Commoners and Knaves" where the myth of FIDE favouring Karpov is finally dismissed, with solid argumentation. Karpov NEVER asked for the ...

KasparHauser: Rest in peace, David Bronstein. A truly fenomenal player.

KasparHauser: I wonder if anyone can seriously (not considering Bufon) claim that Topalov is the strongest player in the world, after he got beaten in a match where he got an extra point, plus the advantage of getting 3 "whites" in a row.
   Oct-25-06 Topalov vs I Sokolov, 2006 (replies)
KasparHauser: A typical draw by Topalov :-) Where is Bufon BTW?????
   Oct-19-06 Veselin Topalov (replies)
KasparHauser: <s4life: Kramnik will be remembered as a coward too though...> I wonder what Topalov will be remembered for, other than being convincingly beaten by this coward, despite his (Topalov's) off the board childish schemes... Just a sore loser and a crybaby. Interestingly, many

KasparHauser: <Peer Gynt> I guess any rule has its shortcomings. I guess the 2700 rule is not so bad as long as you rely on tournament strenght as a reliable indicator of a player's strength. I think that the Chess championship had a fine tradition of being decided by matches (true, ...
   Oct-17-06 Petrosian - Spassky World Championship Match (1969) (replies)
KasparHauser: <Runemaster> Kasparov in OMGP III wrote that he thought the success in game 1 (Petrosian palyed a Paulsen Sicilian as black) had desoriented Petrosian, who though that playing double edged openings as black could give him success.

KasparHauser: <I suspect it is more likely to be the other way around> Particularly in politics.

KasparHauser: <SBC> Thanks a lot indeed. <> could use more kibitzers like u!
