TOP TEN ALL TIME LIST THE TOP TEN ALL TIME BEST CHESS PLAYERS
IN ORDER. YES, COMPUTERS "CAN" MAKE THE
LIST. BASE THE LIST ON PURE PLAYING ABILITY
AT THEIR PEAK NOT LONGEVITY OR LIFETIME
ACHIEVEMENT. ALSO LIST 5 HONORABLE
MENTIONS (FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HATE
TO MAKE A COMMITMENT).

Hmmm... Give me a break... Computer programs make moves humans programmed them to move... How can they possibly make the list... The new chess programs are getting tougher but will never be able to compare to the Masters...

?? Alekhine ? could be a 40 miles all time runner

i wont speak about Fischer ( i dont like the guy but his chess speaks by itself)

id say Tal, Kasparov,Capablanca of course, Fishcer ,Bronstein, Botvinik,Alekhine,Nimzowitch,
Karpov at his peak, Keres perhaps.

i could reevaluate the list i guess. but this is my list for now.

Deja-vu... Yes Frodan... This has been done before... Been there, done that, got the T-shirt... But repeated threads happen all the time...

So, if there are repeated threads, why not repeated posts? I'm actually crazy enough to save what I post (or, at least, most things). Here is what I posted in the last "top ten" thread:

The Informant publication, which I believe would likely only be read by serious chess players (or people who really, really WISH to be serious chess players!), conducted a poll of their readers on the 10 best players of all time. I'm going by memory (it's somewhere on the internet, but I'm too lazy to find it now because the address is strange), and here is the final selection in order of greatness:

1. Fischer
2. Kasparov
3. Alekhine
4. Capablanca (ok, these four I know are in the right order-- from here on, I'm not 100% sure of the order)
5. Botvinnik
6. Tal
7. Karpov
8. Lasker
9. Korchnoi
10. Anand

Now, I don't know how Anand got onto this list...
I guess the poll was conducted during his strong string of tournament victories, but I'm sure he would not make the list today.

Is there anyone..... .....outside the Netherlands who regards Dr Euwe as the best chessplayer of all time? :o

To be fair, his two-volume study, "The Middle Game", IS one of the best chess books of all time.
tulkos 15 ( +1 | -1 )
euwe was a great player---just not one of the very best.
he was a little outclassed by capablanca and alekhine---but he did manage to make the world championship,so he is one of the best ever.

hmmm... Staunton? Had more playing ability than Leko/Kamsky/Topalov/Spassky/Fine? Uh, perhaps that list needs a little work.
absolutegenius 41 ( +1 | -1 )
brobishkin chess computers have the potential to mutalate humans over the board. the more advanced computers don't do the moves that humans tell them too-they think, in part, for themselves. they can think ahead further, and more accuratly, than humans, especially the more powerful ones. computers rock!
please correct me if i'm wrong, cause i'm not sure about everything.

..computer programs.... ...i dont see the top ten list for programs,did i miss something?there was a recent competition involving computer programs and humans if i remember correctly,and a human superGm triumphed,can someone pliz remind us?.....

The 10th world computer chess championship was hold from july 5-11 in the Netherlands. The winner was Junior after 2 tie-break games against Shredder. Junior(7.5) Shredder(7.5) Brutus(7.0) Quest(6.0) Diep(5.0) Warp(5.0) Parsos(4.5) Chinito(4.5) Goliath(4.5) Isichess_X(4.5) Ikarus(4.5) and so on. The games was played with 60 moves in 2 hours and 30 min for rest of the game. 9 rounds by the way.

I am not sure if it was this info you asked for Frodan or you meant the Gulko vs Computers match were Gulko drew both games against Deep Junior, lost one and drew one against Deep Fritz, lost one won one against Shredder, and drew one lost one against Hiarcs 8.

Then there is the Smirin vs Computers match were Smirin did very well with 2 draws against Deep Junior, one draw one win against Tiger, one win one draw against Shredder, and 2 draws against Hiarcs 8.

FISCHERS PERFORMANCE RATING! AFTER CRUSHING TAIMANOV AND LARSEN IN THE CANDIDATES MATCHES IN 1971 WAS(3050)!
brunetti 33 ( +1 | -1 )
Dear Edmaster, congratulations for your translation attempt (Babelfish?), but I hope your moves are far better than that :)
Your challenge is welcome and accepted: tell me how would you like to start, how many games (best of 24?) and if they should be played simultaneously or one at a time.
A last thing: how can you calculate a performance of a 100% score?

Kasparov.
Leko and Kramnik also make my top ten
(Leko is destined for greatness).

Dear edmaster, 7 months ago you wrote about crushing my skull, but no challenge is yet arrived here. Why?

Best regards, Alex

Hmmm I notice... ...a direct relationship between country of player and how 'good' they are.

Of course Fischer is now a traitor and deserves death, but even before then he was never the best in the world, 5th best at his best!
