  3. morphy/fischer/kasparov/anand/carlsen. The greatest ever.

Let's do a poll. who's the greatest chess player ever?

Nimzowitsch

It is difficult to compare them but I believe that Fischer in his pomp was so superior to his rivals it was almost unreal. I think Carlsen and Kasparov are on the same level as Fischer but if I had to choose it would be Fischer.

My favourites are carlsen, tal and Anand

fischer surely

@mohamadreza1386 :)

Where‘s Erwin Wackernagl?

i have never heard of him. sorry. tell me more about him

Andrew Tang. He is the only strong 2700+ GM I have ever faced.

@hangrad good game. I am impressed by the mating net tang created on the king side.
