Silver_light, I am afraid you are not in position to estimate my knowledge or even dispute my statements.
I have seen soviet players speaking before USSR fell and after. The difference is big and the conclusion is obvious: they were muzzled and watched in the soviet era.
Just compare Kasparov's public statements from the 80's and 1993 onward.
Have you ever heard the name Baturinski?
Did you read Bronstein's books from the 90's?
Baturinsky was the Kremlin's man who made sure that none of the USSR players stepped out of line. But he wasn't involved in Iceland in 1972.
Perhaps the Soviets assumed that they'd win in 1972?
Personally i think Fischer WAS A SPOILT BRAT who thought he was God's gift JUST because he was champion.
FISCHER WOULD OF CRUSHED KARPOV WITH EXTREME PREJUDICE
#1.HIS DICISION NOT TO DEFEND HIS TITLE
IN 1975 WASN'T REALLY HIS FREE WILL DECISION THE WORLD CHESS FEDERATION'S
REFUSAL TO ACCEPT ALL OF BOBBY FISCHER'S 157 -158 CONDITIONS TO PLAY KARPOV WAS THE PROBLEM I HAVE NO DOUBT SOMEONE SOMEBODY WITH MONEY AND HATRED TOWARDS FISCHER'S BELIEFS
INFLUENCED THE WORLD CHESS FEDERATION TO NOT ACCEPT HIS LAST CONDITION HE WANTED SO BADLY
IT WAS A PERSONAL POLITICAL DECISION
AGAINST FISCHER PERIOD!THEY DID NOT CARE REALLY ABOUT THE CAUSE OF CHESS
THE EVIL POWERS TO BE WANTED FISCHER TO GO AWAY WHY BECAUSE OF HIS POLITICAL VIEWS AND CHESS THEY KNEW WILL CONTINUE WITHOUT HIM JUST THINK
FISCHER WOULD OF MADE CHESS EVEN MORE POPULAR THAN BEFORE IT WAS AGAINST THE COMMUNIST 1N 1972 THE NEXT MATCH WOULD BE AGAINST THE WORLD!AND THE EVIL POWERS TO BE WOULD
REALLY HAVE THERE KINGS CHECKMATED
HE WOULD RUN THE CHESS WORLD NOT THE
GRANDPATZERS HIS VIEWS WOULD BE SPREAD ACROSS THE PLANET THROUGH THE MEDIA BAD OR GOOD AND WE ALL NO WHAT THAT WOULD MEAN CHESS WOULD BE HIS PLATFORM TO BE FREE TO EXPRESS HIS
VIEWS THATS CALLED FREE SPEECH OTHERS
THOUGHT DIFFERENT SO FISCHER THOUGHT ALRIGHT YOU DONT WANT A CHESS MATCH I WONT GIVE YOU ONE THE CHESS MATCH OF GREAT PROPORTIONS DID NOT TAKE PLACE BECAUSE OF CORRUPTION IN HIGH PLACES THEY UNDERMINED CHESS AFTER THEY DID A HATCHET JOB ON HIS REPUTATION AND PROFESSION
THE WORLD CHESS FEDERATION REFUSED
THE LEGEND BOBBY FISCHERS RIGHT
TO PLAY CHESS AGAINST KARPOV THERE
WAS NO LEGITIMATE REASON NOT TO GIVE
FISCHER ALL THE CONDITIONS HE DEMANDED SINCE IT WAS HIS GOD GIVEN CHESS RIGHT HE EARNED IT FAIR AND SQUARE!
THERES MORE STAY TUNED THIS INFORMATION IS JUST 1 SQUARE ON A CHESSBOARD THERE ARE 63 SQUARES LEFT
Fischer would have beaten Karpov. He could have held onto the title until Kasparov arrived. Fischer Kasparov would have been a great match in the late 80s
karpov would have won
But he was the gift that keeps on giving
they love to hate him, he made the mistake of coming back and showing the old man in the mirror.
he was bigot , racist, and this is what karpov said i would have been beaten but the lesson he would have given me would have given me the motivation and drive that would have me become the greatest ever.
Silman and study master games...
