Why I was young, I don't like Karpov's or Capablanca's games. My feeling
is the the win was mechanical and boring I like attacking players like Alekhine, especially Adolf Anderson, the winner of the " Immortal Game. " But as I grow older, my taste change, players like Tal, Shirov, Judit, there games I still like, but I also now appreaciate the games of Karpov. His stategy is excellent. If one have patience to play through his games, the games are as enjoyable as Kasparov's or Alekhine. Why I mention Lasker, I think he with Karpov do not have the respect from Chess Fans. Lasker and Karpov, from any point of view, concerning their results, playing stregth, must be included in the greatest players of all time. Fischer's style is in between Karpov and Kasparov. So that is why Fischer's games are so fascintating. But it is pity for chess fans that Fischer did not play after becoming Champion. Imagine the following scenario, if Fischer continued to play, Karpov, even if the aborted championship acutally held and even if Karpov lost, Karpov would still improved. Then comes Kasparov. Then let us imagine a year in 1980s, say 1985. Fischer at that tme is 42, if still active, then he still would be one of the or the the strongest players in the world, Karpov,at his peak in 1985, then the rising star Kasparov, if these 3 greatest player of all time play to each other, friends, imagine what happen!! But this is just a dream!!! I then woke up.In this occasion, I also like to protest for Lasker for not including in greatest players of all time of chess. His strong middle and endgame technique,his shart tactis, he held the longest records of championhip for 27 years, he played still very strong even if he grew old, ( Alekhine, even at his best, just won ONE game from Lasker when Lasker waslong long time passing his peak ). So no matter how other people think, I think Lasker
must be ranked as one of the greatest chess players of all time!!!
