Pick any of the world champions and explain your reasoning.

Laskers's strategic genius? Capablanca's simplicity? Alekhine's combinations? Fisher's great all around? Karpov's positional style? Kasparov positional and combination style? or Magnus Carlsen Highest rated player of all times?

WOW . I asked for Horses and you gave me Mules, I asked for official Chess Champion and you answer like that !

Paul Charles Morphy (June 22, 1837 – July 10, 1884) was an American chess player. He is considered to have been the greatest chess master of his era and an unofficial World Chess Champion.

Then maybe you shouldn't have posted it in a computer chess forum.

General topics of 'computerchess'.

Somehow I have the feeling your posts will stir into a certain direction soon...
(and I don't believe your name is Nancy M. Pichardo, which resembles quite much
a certain 'Pichy' aka Jorge Pichard aka George and some other accounts and your
posting style also resembles his quite a lot)
