Magnus Carlsen hands down, he just beat Hikaru Nakamura again today. Esketit. He's like s1mple, but in chess. Hikaru is like zywoo, same size.

I believe Kasparov is the most successful player of all time.
2020-05-29 22:02
The most successful? Well i guess it's is kind of debatable as he was 5 or maybe 6 time world champion but still....his highest achieved rating is not spectacular...not bad but also not big, if I am not mistaken have never been world champion of all 3 simultaneously...his all out attacks are admittedly pretty nice to watch, however, his pawn breaks and sacrifices would be dismantled if he played against another genius level player or at least wouldnt be as effective. Definitely one of the greatest, but look at what Carlsen has been doing...played off the book destroying everyone and is collecting all the tropheys before turning 30...Lasker, Botvinik, Fischer even in terms of success are all in the talks

I'm not trying to compare them. Kasparov was well known for his consistently. Amazing defensive player that would grind out game over and over. Bobby changed the game with his aggression and sacrifices and helped make the modern game. With his cocky attitude he's a fan favourite.
2020-05-30 00:39
magnus himself says he has not achieved enough to be considered greater than kasparov and needs to build his career more in the coming years to be the true goat
2020-05-30 09:16
Hes just humble. Hes already the best that ever was. And hes not even 30 yet.

He gets more experienced, based on what you said world champions would be n their 50s and 60s. The thing is IQ starts to decrease and so does your memory at a certain age.

He will be fine until his 40s. Will he be as good as he is today? Probably not. Look at guys like Karpov, Kasparov, Kramnik, even Fischer was at his peak when he won against Spassky at Magnus' exact same age, they all went downhill afterwards.
2020-05-30 14:09
It might be motivation, but his iq and smartness remains the same. Brain motivation starts to become erratic by too much stress or repetitiveness.
2020-05-30 14:11

Motivation is certainly an aspect too, but iq also starts to decrease by one's 30s, that's why IQ tests are normalized for each age.

disagree, we are testifying the best ever chess player in History Magnus achieved the highest elo in History plus he is a Champions in several formats of chess the same way i think we are going to testify the best ever CS Player of the History

carlsen is def the best player in the world as of right now, he has close matches against ding liren in classical and hikaru in blitz, but noone is gonna argue that they are better than carlsen. however, the best of all time is generally a discussion between kasporav, carlsen and fischer, who were all geniuses of the game (i personally like fischer, he is flashier than carlsen).

There are many ways to look at it. Carlsen says himself, Kasparov is the goat, but considering how dominant Carlsen has been during his reign in all time controls in times when millions of games as well as hilariously strong chess engines is somewhat baffling. Chess.com developed a tool to compare Grand Masters across the timeline, and it turns out that Carlsen is the most "precise" player of all, finding "top engine moves" most consistently. One may argue that the theory wasn't developed as it is today, so how could i.e. Fischer, Petrosjan or Karpov not to mention Capablanca ever compete with that. Maybe the discussion is fruitless: All the Masters were of course great in their time. It is worth mentioning though, that Carlsen holds the record of highest ELO of all as well as having been above 2800 since November 2009 on top of the longest "no loss games" streak. He's simply a phenomenon and I tend to agree that we will never see anything like him in the chess world.

He is overrated Carlsen good in classic chess but he loss to Wesley So in chess960 en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIDE_World_Fischer.. 960 should be the chess norm and positional themes like classical should be the variant. That way you can't use prepared lines or cheat with an engine. Magnus is cheater, cuz he is undefeated at standard chess because he has a strong memorization which makes it a huge advantage memorizing strong engines moves like Stockfish. All is equal, no memorized opening advantage, the best player wins. Wesley proved he is stronger in "pure chess" than Magnus in this championship. 960 is the future.
