Wilhelm Steinitz: Between Bugojno in 1982 and Linares in 2005 Kasparov played a total of 577 tournament games with classical time control. He won an incredible 260 games (45.1 %), drew 292 games (50.6 %) and lost only 25 games (4.3 %). I would like to see Carlsen getting even close to such ...
 
   Sep-09-12 Chess Olympiad (2012) (replies)
 
Wilhelm Steinitz: I think the Russian Chess Federation should start to seriously consider the possibility of offering Kasparov an astronomical amount of money to make a comeback, which would enable him to play the top board for team Russia in the Tromso olympiad in 2014. They should do ...
 
   Jun-05-12 Anand - Gelfand World Championship Match (2012) (replies)
 
Wilhelm Steinitz: <twinlark:> <- Kasparov the third (also twice - in 1986 and 1990)> Complete and utter nonsense. Kasparov successfully defended his title 5 times (1986, 1987, 1990, 1993 & 1995), not twice as you mentioned. You really need to get your facts straight before ...

   Oct-10-11 Grand Slam Chess Final (2011) (replies)
 
Wilhelm Steinitz: <theagenbiteofinwit:> <As the numbers clearly show, nothing surpasses the American Triumvirate.> It is easy to look good against @#$%house competition. No disrespect to the legendary Paul Morphy, he was a great player, but it does not change the undisputable ...
 
   Jul-31-11 Karpov - Kasparov World Championship Match (1984/85) (replies)
 
Wilhelm Steinitz: <JoergWalter:> <By the way, despite this great lesson for him Kasparov's trauma is this (and he himself said so): In a 100 years Kasparov will not be remembered for his success playing humans but he will be remembered as the first world champion who has lost ...
 
   May-20-11 World Championship Candidates (2011) (replies)
 
Wilhelm Steinitz: <M.D. Wilson:> <Anand is much better now than he was 10-15 years ago.> On the contrary, Anand is probably weaker today, aged 41, than he was, say between 1997 and 2005 (28-36 years old). Remember, since Anand became World Champion in 2007, he has participated in
 
   Mar-20-11 Viswanathan Anand (replies)
 
Wilhelm Steinitz: <shach matov:> <Kasparov vs. Anand +15 -6 =20; +9> Kasparov was actually +15, -3, =30 (+12) against Anand in classical chess. In tournaments (classical chess) Kasparov was +11, -2, =17 (+9) against Anand. For comparison, Carlsen is currently 1-6 [-5, (excluding ...
 
   Feb-18-11 Kasparov vs Judit Polgar, 2006 (replies)
 
Wilhelm Steinitz: <iking:> <Classical games: Vladimir Kramnik beat Garry Kasparov 9 to 7, with 50 draws.> That statistic is incorrect. The correct score between Kasparov and Kramnik in classical chess is 5 wins, 4 losses and 40 draws in Kramnik's favour.
 
   Dec-16-10 London Chess Classic (2010) (replies)
 
Wilhelm Steinitz: <Sokrates:> <So who are the five best players today, gentlemen? My list would be: Anand, Kramnik, Carlsen, Aronian and maybe Ivanchuk, although his results are highly varying.> I think the following 6 players are currently the best in absolute terms. 1. Kasparov
