  1. Nice video. I must take exception with your assessment of Carlsen being the greatest player of all time. With all due respect, that is quite laughable. May I direct your attention to the World Chess Championship Tournament of 1972 when Fisher beat Spassky. Can you imagine any current day player winning 12 consecutive games against Grandmaster competition? Fisher did it in the quarter finals and semi finals leading up to his match with Spassky. He won those matches 6-0 and 6-0 in a world championship tournament. The last recently completed world finals had dozens of draws and a lot of sloppy play. I say there will NEVER be another human that wins 12 straight games without a draw against that kind of competition ever again. No wonder the Soviets were scared and thought Fisher was a Svengali. I have had the pleasure to meet and play with several of the top players in the world years ago. Unfortunately, Fisher developed many mental disorders, but, at his peak he was the most amazing player that ever lived. Seriously. His feat of those 12 straight wins against Grandmasters is simply amazing. Magnus is indeed a very nice player, but the greatest of all time? I think not!
