Chess playing dataset
A tally of wins and losses for games between three chess players: Topalov, Anand, Karpov
The players are:
- Grandmaster Veselin Topalov. FIDE world champion 2005-2006; peak rating 2813
- Grandmaster Viswanathan Anand. FIDE world champion 2000-2002, 2008; peak rating 2799
- Grandmaster Anatoly Karpov. FIDE world champion 1993-1999; peak rating 2780
Observe that Topalov beats Anand, Anand beats Karpov, and Karpov beats Topalov (here, beats means wins more games than).
The games thus resemble a noisy version of rock paper scissors.
