some stats Hello all.

Here some stats. As all stats, they are not the definitive word on anything! I present them here just for fun.

Some players had bad health, some other had other problems, etc.

They are based on chessgames.com, plus a bit of excel.

Chessgames.com is an excellent site but the
database is quite unreliable for this kind of thing. Of
world champions Lasker had by far the best %
Capablanca was second, slightly ahead of Fischer.
When you consider the respective lengths of career
of these players I think it's difficult to overstate the
extraordinary strength of Lasker.
