    Chess favorite player tournament Round 1 match 1 Kasparov versus White

    This match up would be completely one sided if it came to a chess contest, but can White's popularity on TMF allow him to beat one of the greatest players of the game of Kings ?

    Kasparov was world champion from 1985 to 2000 which is the longest reign post WW II, is second in Elo only to Carlsen (and many would argue that you shouldn't compare ratings of non contemporaries), has had many great games along the years, of which I'll present two :

    http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1011478 Kasparov's immortal, where he goes sacrificing almost all of his pieces for seemingly no result until the end of the combination unfolds.

    http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1067294 Magnificient play from Kaspy versus his arch enemy, Anatoly Karpov.

    White is TMF's fourth seat, which is nearly as significant as being world champion these days

    Indeed, remember when Deep Blue beat him and he accused it of cheating?

    Whereas White takes his losses like a man and grows stronger because of them

    That first sentence, reminds me of a certain someone accusing you of cheating when he lost to you

    That's why he is a master and I'm not, I'm not as much a sore loser as he is yet
