I really do have an affinity for chess: the players, moves, strategies, etc. and I wanted to learn more about the top players of all time. I always thought that Bobby Fischer was regarded as the “official grandmaster of chess” but he is actually ranked at 11 worldwide. It goes Garry Kasparov, Magnus Carlsen, Levon Aronian, Viswanathan Anand, Veselin Topalov, Vladimir Kramnik, Alexander Morozevich, Sergey Karjakin, Teimour Radjabov, and then Vassily Ivanchuk for the first ten. I am totally oblivious to all of those names and their nationalities are comprised of Russia, Norway, Armenia, India, Bulgaria, Azerbaijan, and Ukraine. You learn something new every day and I should look up to them as an inspiration to increase my ranking!!! I found this information on Wikipedia.
