Couldnt agree more. People tend to forget that Fischer hadn't even qualified for the interzonal that led to world championship. Benko had and gave up his spot for Fischer.
People ,people ,people cmon maaaaaaaaaaaaan !!! The question isnt who would win.The question is who had more talent??? BOBBY FISCHER!!!! Heres why. Bobby did have the MIGHTY russian machine helping him play chess..Kasparov has like 20 guys on his team who helped make him the chess player he was including the years in the Botvinik school of chess.Bobby trained alone barely giving interviews..Bobby even impressed Kasparov in Kasparovs own words.The bottom line is that Fischer was a natural born chess legend.Kasparov was a russian product developed by the russian school of chess.Kasparovs early games if compared to Bobbys were drawish and mechanical.At 14 Alexander Kotov A RUSSIAN named one of Bobbys games The game of the century!!! Bobby said morphy was best because in his time he had no preddesecors to draw off of. But the best was Capablanca reported never to have read 1 chess book.Bobby was self taught and instructed.Kasparov cant even beat the best today anymore and noone really stands out the best is Anand??? hehehehehe Laughable compared to bobbys genius anand is just another chess computer whiz..In fact if all the players were assembled at the top today they all almost draw or there is only a marginal difference in the outcome of the games.Anand only wins by a game or 2 over carlsen leko svidler bla bla bla..None can come close to bobby he is " The Secretariat of chess"
They were both very strong players, and sense they never played each other, we don't know.
no chess player ever affected both everyday folk and chess players as fisher did.....of course he was a sick man,but rock the chess world?I was there(yes i'am 70) and sat before a large movie screen spell-bound, along with millions.His ability to win is far above todays drawish bunch. IF fisher had chess help ( and he did),what about the engines of modern tech-----so common even chess,com has unending list of cheaters.
Your opinion is highly biased by the fact that you are American.
who can stand infornt of the legend who made game of the century at the age of13 ? -fisher is obvious..
More like highly irrelevant, as he's (quite obviously) clueless.
fischer 100%. One man fight against the whole USSR
No one is better than Anatoly Karpov.
...who was unlucky having to face Kasparov OTB at the early eghties.
Best movie / inspirational story? Probably Fischer.
Best chess player... probably not Fischer. One of the best, sure. But notice Fischer didn't win even one game as world champion.
And in every sport I know, they say it's harder to keep the title than win it.
I like Kasparov better because Fischer had the title for 1 year and Kasparov had it for something like 15 years. Fischer quit after he won his championship, which really is a shame. They both weren't happy with FIDE and Kasparov created the PCA. In a game of chess with both players at the height of their career, a draw would happen. I like Kasparov more because of what he did off the chessboard.
During all time, the best are Murphey, Capablanca, Alekhine, Botvinnik and Kasparov.
Who was better: Stallone or van Damme?
There's only one word and the word is CHUCK!!!
Who is the best "Calculation" player of all time? Why?
