Chess players, like everyone else, have an amazing ability to become successful in a sport they love.
The sport has grown in popularity over the years, with the game now considered one of the best ways to compete at the highest level.
With that in mind, we asked ESPN chess expert Chris Kirkland about the best and worst chess players in history.
Here’s what he had to say.1.
Garry Kasparov, world chess champion in 1999-2002When Kasparova first became a professional, she had only been playing for two years.
She was still learning how to play chess, and she was only 20 years old.
But she was so far ahead of the game in terms of playing skill, she was one of three women to win the World Chess Championship in 1999.
Her performance at the 1999 event was one reason she was named the first woman to win a major chess tournament.
At the 2000 World Chess Classic, she won the women’s title, and the next year she won another major tournament, the Asian Chess Classic.
But Kasparovic was no slouch.
She made the final round of the 2001 edition of the Asian Championship, defeating her teammate Fabiano Caruana, and took the championship by a single point.
Kasparoviov was also the first female to win two world titles in one year, and was crowned world champion for the first time in 2002.2.
David Duval, world number one player in 1980-84David Duval was the first player to take the World Junior Championship from the United States.
His victory over the defending champion, Boris Gelfand, is the first in history to be credited to the United Kingdom.
In 1984, Duval beat World No. 1, Vladimir Kramnik, in the final of the WJC.
He also played against world number five, Mikhail Tal, in 1988.
Duval went on to win five major titles, but his best results came in the 1980s, when he dominated world number three, Vladimir Putin.
His performances at the 1984 and 1988 world championships earned him the title of world number four, and he played a crucial role in Putin’s defeat in the 1990s.3.
Boris Becker, world No. 3 player in 1988-90The world No 2 player in the world, Boris Becker had a successful career.
He won three world titles and reached the semi-finals of the 1996 U.S. Open.
He took part in the first U.N. Women’s World Championship in 1990, losing to world number six, Maria Sharapova, in straight sets.
Becker won the tournament in a time of global upheaval after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Becker is the only player to reach the final, and in a memorable match against Gelfard, the Bulgarian beat the German.4.
Sergey Karjakin, world no. 1 player in 2003-06Sergey Karjakin had a great career, winning a record nine major titles in five years, including a third World Championship title in 2008.
His peak was his peak at the 2004 Australian Open, where he beat world number nine, Novak Djokovic.
Karjakiin has never reached the finals of a major, and finished in seventh place at the 2008 Australian Open.5.
Vladimir Kompany, world champion in 2007-10When Kompanin won the 2008 U.K. Open, he was a world number two player.
His best result came in 2010, when Kompa took home the title at Wimbledon, which he was unable to do for most of the tournament.
He was also one of two players to beat world No 1, Andy Murray, in a three-set match at the 2010 Australian Open finals.6.
Alexander Zverev, world top player in 2011-12The Russian won a record six majors in five seasons, including the ATP World Tour Finals in 2013.
He finished third in his career and made the semifinals of the 2012 U.R.S., the U.A.E. and the Asian Open.
The 2012 Australian Open also featured the first-ever men’s final, as Alexander Zerevlov defeated No. 4 seed David Goffin to take a 4-2 victory in the semifinals.
He will be looking to repeat that success in 2013 when he faces No. 2 seed Novak Fedorov.7.
Mikhail Kasparavic, world master of chess in 2014-15After winning the World Championship at the end of the 2014 season, Kasparovich returned to the chess world for a third time.
He had a terrific tournament, with a record of 14 wins and one draw.
He lost to world No 5, Andy Roddick, in seven sets, but he was able to retain his title with a 3-1 victory over world No 8, Stanislav Ivanov.
Kasaravic was also able to hold off Ivanov in the last round, winning in seven games to reach his fourth
