    Not sure if I agree with all of this, but they seem to be pretty accurate. Any thoughts?

    I think they confused Edward Lasker with Emanuel.

    I think you are right Big Dog.

    They have drawn up a list of top 10 and googled them.

    Edward came up before Emanuel so Edward Lasker is in. All the others have
    a wee blurb about their achievements. Edward Lasker gets that win in a blitz game -
    the score of which he himself has given with a different move order on at least three occasions..

    Great music!!
    Interesting list.

    It's nearly impossible to render historical lists like this.

    One note, Kas said to have the highest rating ever, over 2800, must be an old vid since Maggie overtook his rating and is now the highest rating ever. I thought at one point he was going to get to 2900 but that didn't happen.

    I enjoyed it. I was wondering where Fisher was once we got down to the last two.
