In some of the chess books and videos I've enjoyed recently, I've noted a common reference to finding your individual chess hero. From what I gathered, this would be someone whose games resonate with you and inspire your own decisions on the board.
As I am just now getting more serious with my chess study, I don't really have a chess hero at this time. I really haven't yet studied enough games by the masters to discover someone whose tactics really speak to me.
So I wanted to create a simple and short post tonight and ask: Do you have a chess hero? If so, who? And why? I'd really enjoy reading which players inspire my readers.
(And since I don't have one... feel free to nominate one!)
