The title of World Chess Champion means "The Strongest Chess Player on Earth".In 1886, two masters played a long chess match. Most chess historians regard the Steinitz-Zukertort match as the first official World Chess Championship, because it started a grand tradition. Starting with Steinitz, the title of World Chess Champion has been handed down through the generations from one player to another, like an Olympic torch.In 1948, FIDE World Chess Championship Tournament crowned Mikhail Botvinnik as World Chess Champion and established a more formal system of selecting candidates for the future.This system worked reasonably well, until 1993, PCA (Professional Chess Association) created a split title, while FIDE continued to manage a World Championship cycle. The uncomfortable situation of a split title persisted for 13 years. The title was reunified in 2006 when FIDE Champion Veselin Topalov lost to Kramnik in Elista.The application include all Classical World Chess Champions' biography and large collection of games: Wilhelm Steinitz (1886-1894) : 579 games Emanuel Lasker (1894-1921) : 1047 games Jose Raul Capablanca (1921-1927) : 488 games Alexander Alekhine (1927-1935, 1937-1946) : 2151 games Max Euwe (1935-1937) : 1081 games Mikhail Botvinnik (1948-1957, 1958-1960, 1961-1963) : 817 games Vasily Smyslov (1957-1958) : 1795 games Mikhail Tal (1960-1961) : 2158 games Tigran Petrosian (1963-1969) : 1670 games Boris Spassky (1969-1972) : 1568 games Robert James "Bobby" Fischer (1972-1975) : 719 games Anatoly Karpov (1975-1985) : 858 games Garry Kasparov (1985-2000) : 1543 games Vladimir Kramnik (2000-2007) : 1431 games Viswanathan Anand (2007-2013) : 1812 games Magnus Carlsen (2013 - ): 1759 gamesFeatures:* Huge game collections * Auto play with speed adjustment, or move manually* Export or share game PGN file* Chess quotes by World Chess Champions* Famous game videos on YouTube* Play any game at any point, challenge world championsPossess this application, you will learn Chess Opening, End games and Strategies from 'Strongest chess Players" in the world.
