    My favorite is probably Tal, but who doesn't love Tal? Fischer is probably my second favorite but I'm American so I Kind of feel obligated to have him in my fav's XD

    I like Tal because he made the game fun, don't get me wrong chess has always been fun, but when you get people like Fischer who are a little robotic in their play Tal really lightens it up (imo)

    Anatoly Karpov is my favorite. He's given a lot of time and effort back to the chess playing community. (You sure can't say the about Fischer!)

    Emanuel Lasker is my personal favorite. He was Tal's favorite chess player as well.

    My favorite is Capablanca. Rubinstein's best games are wonderful. And I have a soft spot for Euwe.

    Of modern players I like Short and Kramnik.
