Carlsen: "I Would Beat Tal Easily, But Fischer Too"

Post by AdminX » Sat Nov 28, 2015 5:42 pm

Easy to say, but hard to prove. Fact is he can't prove it.

I'm sure he's right.

Whether he could beat a Fischer who was trained in today's chess theory is another question.
Deasil is the right way to go.

Agree with Magnus. He would easily with against both Tal and Fischer, most likely on time :shock:

Tal would not stand a chance in todays chess scene. Tals whole idea of chess was to have fun.

Fischer would adapt to todays chess scene. Fischer might be above Carlsen too, if he was living and playing in his prime in these times.

Maybe i could estimate elo's like this:

Fischer 2903
Carlsen 2902
Kasparov 2901
Tal 2750
All pretty awesome!

My hottest game of all time would be Tal verses Morphy.
Maybe not the most powerful and perfect chess in the world, but definitely the most scintillating.

Give me scintillation over perfection every time. Besides, scintillation I can understand. Comprehension of perfection eludes me.
