    Chess favorite player tournament Round 1 match 7 Alekhine vs Nakamura

    Alekhine is one of the only World champ who managed to get back his crown after losing it, when he stopped drinking after his loss against Euwe (14.5-15.5), when he won the rematch 15.5-9.5

    The guy's a legend and one of the finest tactician ever. He's the one who took the crown from Capa, and just that was quite the challenge !

    Faced to him is someone who likes to banter a lot but cannot completely follow up his words with actions. He once said he'd be the Frodon to the Sauron that Carlsen represents but he isn't even in the candidates tournament this year since he didn't qualify. One must recognize some qualities and he is quite the fine tactician himself. In fact, I'd say he's unlucky to have been born in this era where so much is decided in opening preparation helped with computers, as he looks a lot like a natural talent to me and would do a lot better had he been born another time ...

    So ... who's your favorite ??
