    Gotta admire a guy who smokes like a chimney, lives to be over 80, and still beats the crap out of other younger GMs. 😛

    To be fair Judit has faced far more men than Yifan. Still impressive.

    Any chance of those two having a match? Not just one game but a real match.

    At her peak Judit Polgar was one of the best players in the world. Yifan Hou is still some way off that, and to be honest I doubt if she'll ever quite make it.

    Caissad4 is ranked no 324. You don't know the gender of all the players ranked 1 - 323!

    I didn't think engines had a gender.

    Although, if you leave Fritz's talk engine on, it's always bragging about the size of its c*ck. 😵

    Longtime contender, great chess mind, very underappreciated. Glad to see others admire Korchnoi.

    A great book is Korchnoi's My Best Games, 2011 Edition OLMS. Updated and has both Vol.1 & Vol. 2 in one book. His annotations are very different..tells quite a bit about what he was thinking during his very long career.
