First of all I will answer who was the stronger player. My response is that if you took a Bobby Fischer with all the acculumlated knowledge of theory up until the time of Kasparov and put Bobby against Garry at BOTH their peaks you have to give a slight nod to Fischer...who actually had a PEAK rating for one year above Gary's (right after he destroyed Larsen and Taimonoov in 1971)
Now as to Fischers sanity...let me say this...Bobby was ahead of his time. Actually anyone who has studied 9-11 in depth knows 9-11 was an inside job which Bobby mentioned almost immediatly.
Secondly, although Anti Semitism can never be condoned prima fascie, however it is now NO DOUBT that there is an international zionist world banking cartel that is artificially inflating the money supply and destroying the world economy. Just look at what is happenning in europe....Want more proof..? Not ONE single indictment after all the bailouts and Wallstreet derivitive scams in 2008 ? Look at what is happenning in Europe...No WONDER Bobby was a hero in Iceland (the only country to take him back..Iceland ALSO told the Globalist Bankers to stick it several years ago and Iceland is a lot better off today...) Can ANYONE now doubt that the bankers themselves are responsible for the current mess ? Bobby was right all along ...even though he did not articulate it well enough and his was the type of paranoid personality that alienated many...But Bobby WAS a prophet in many ways. Great player and one of the most independent minded indiviualists in the history of mankind.

Well, thank God (case closed).
Well, thank God (cased closed).
Nobody can argue against a Nascar driver.
Especially one who's also a head coach.
And an owner (also a fast food restaurant).
I'm just glad his first name isn't Ray (although looking back over his post, maybe it is)...
That's the "You can call me Ray" guy btw (for all you youthful little goofs).
Bobby Fischer had the opportunity (in his prime) to face Karpov...and he refused. Many don't know this, but later on he was approached by both Karpov and Kasparov to play them...he also refused. The point is Bobby Fischer (for whatever reason) did not want to play anyone after winning the WCC...and yes, I think less of him as a player because of this...you just can't be the best if you refuse to play the competition.
Does it matter? Let us just remember all Bobby Fischer did for Chess, enjoy all the great games he left for us to enjoy and stop asking questions that can have no answer. Let the man rest in peace!
Oops, looks like there's another paternity suit...
Reminds me of the Mayweather-Pacquiao rifts
Honestly, we will never know- they never played each other!
Bobby declined the match because of the tournament conditions he wanted- FIDE did not meet all of the conditions in which he would play the match.
In 1992, Fischer was playing at about 2550 strength and Kasparov was playing at about 2790 strength.
Yeah, apparently he would only agree to play if it was in a war zone.
Wow, this guy's no forum fun at all.
Fischer would walk in, take one look at the curtains, scream because they were the wrong color, flip over the table with the pieces on it, storm off, and spend the next 30 years insisting he was the "moral" victor in this match.
Besides Fischer, the only person in the world who would privately believe Kasparov lost would be Kasparov, allowing Fischer to throw a tantrum better than he ever could.
Fischer is one up on Kasparov in one area: it took the cops 20 minutes to get the cuffs on him. Only took 30 seconds to get them on Garry.
(Though both managed to bite off a piece of their captors as a souvenir.)
There was proof that Garry never bit the police officer
I personally believe Fischer was scared to loose...so the only sure way not to, was to stop playing. Made of better stuff, he could have had such an epic effect on chess, he could have done so much more.
