I enjoy Boris Spassky the most, then Karpov.

   Mar-28-21 Kramnik - Topalov World Championship Match (2006) (replies)
Allanur: @Beatgiant, I must have confused the games in my previous post. Later, I clarified it. As for your last question, I of course am not gonna give verdict based on this issue only, but if it turns out the Kramnik's behaviour in this match was his usual habit, not something unique to ...
   Mar-09-21 Fischer - Spassky (1992) (replies)
Allanur: Kasparov on Fischer during this match: "There sits this poor fellow with whom you cannot converse normally, and what’s more he plays bad chess."
   Mar-09-21 Kramnik - Leko Classical World Championship Match (2004)
Allanur: I am curious: Did Kramnik spend lots of time in bathrooms in this match as well? What about his match against Kasparov? What about his tournament performances circa 2006? Did he used to spend his time in bathrooms as he did against Topalov? I am trying to decide if his behaviour in ...
   Feb-20-21 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
Allanur: <accuracy of play was much lower too, of course.> Accuracy is not that much of a factor there. Accuracy was lower on both sides(challenger and the champion). They did not have luxury of playing for a draw like Karpov-Kasparov did in 1984. They were not paying for their ...
   Feb-20-21 Petrosian - Korchnoi Candidates Semifinal (1971)
Allanur: Petrosian narrating about this match, match against Huebner and his pre-tournaments thoughts:
   Feb-19-21 Fischer vs Petrosian, 1971 (replies)
Allanur: The thing that most amazed me from Petrosian's annotation is the knights exchange on c6. Petrosian states this exchange makes 4.a6 a waste of time. I had never realised it, I am not a player of high calibre, yet I think I could have realised it.
   Feb-19-21 Petrosian - Spassky World Championship Match (1966)
Allanur: Pre-match interview blitz of Spassky and Petrosian: This interview was kinda different. It was of casual questions and a blitz match: 20 seconds given to answer the questions.
   Jan-22-21 Petrosian vs Fischer, 1971 (replies)
Allanur: This Karpov 'fans' are more confident in Karpov's skills than Karpov was/is about his own skills. The fact is, as Karpov himself narrated, Karpov's seniors made it clear that if Karpov bets his head, he is allowed to play Fischer under any conditions Karpov himself accepts. If ...
   Jan-16-21 Korchnoi - Petrosian Candidates Quarterfinal (1980) (replies)
Allanur: < I'm curious. What exactly would Fischer learn from Karpov? > To begin with, Karpov would have been top of the iceberg. The entire Soviet chess system would have taught if someone taught. Then, in the 4th game of the 72 match, Fischer was taught something in his favourite ...
   Jan-11-21 Karpov - Korchnoi World Championship Match (1978) (replies)
Allanur: <Korchnoi defected from the Soviet Union in 1976 and settled in Switzerland in 1978, becoming a Swiss citizen. So, like with Spassky, the Soviet Union's ability to prevent him from playing in tournaments was "greatly diminished" after 1976.> Korhcnoi was being boycotted by the
