Great Chess Players title

“With few exceptions, the really big international stars of Chess are definitely larger than life. Their talent, appearance, strength of character and general ambience single them out from lesser mortals, and the mark of the truly big international star is the ability to stand out without consciously and constantly striving to do so.”      --Chesmayne
