Fischer vs. Kasparov

    It's nice to see an insightful debate about the two players. To judge who is 'better' you need to identify what aspect(s) you wish to judge as ( I feel) they both have very different prospects that make them the great players of chess they are. Skill is hard to judge, as the best test is to have them play eachother. I do believe that Kasparov was the beter sportsman, but not necessarily the better player of chess.

    OK, Fisch vs Kasp at...chess boxing!!!  Your thoughts?

    Sure, Fischer was the bigger guy, but Kasparov got an awful lot of experience with this kind of thing in Russian government.

    Make it Drunk Chess Boxing and obviously Kasparov is the winner.

    Contrary to popular belief, Fischer and Kasparov did meet over the board on a number of occasions. Bobby's rude and abrasive public persona was just part of an act. In reality, he was a congenial and rather pleasant person, and he and Kasparov were actually good friends. When asked about his comment "Kasparov is the lowest dog on the face of the earth!" Bobby said the remark was made "just to create a buzz....". Here's one of the few surviving games, believed to have been played in the early 80's, when Bobby visited Garry at his beach house in Varna, on the Black Sea:

    I believe that the reason why Fischer is undervalued as a chess player

     

    Yes really undervalued theres so many names we put infront of him lol does the TS know the meaning of undervalued? 

    TS. Undervalued compared to who to Kasparov? To Karpov? To spassky? To Korchnoi? To Timman? Keres? 

    He was great at is prime but so was Morphy, Capablanca, Alenkhine and so many others great player but horrible Human being. Not undervalued at all, if something I would say overvalued! Is victories where really strange beating Spassky like he did really? Spassky blundering simple positions. I bet there was a lot of money in the mix...

    Ibeteau, my moral compass (I still use three dashes for my main adjectives, so you see that I try), I have finally figured out why I enjoy your presence on these forums...You remind me of my favorite member who was banished from this land so long ago:  Eo_______ .  You don't quite have the blithe wisdom or laser-guided-razor-sharp-biting insight of Eo_______, but you are probably younger and I know if you persist, you will grow to become the best Eo_______ that I know you can be (don't let the haters get to you). 

    From now on, I will no longer call you ibeteau. 

    I hereby decree you (in the name of dannyhume)...l'il Eo______ ***

     Sheesh! What a grouch! ........ The game in post #99 is actually from a Fischer simultaneous in San Francisco, 1964. His opponent was R. Burger..... and Bobby lost!

    Then I am correct, and the original poster still stands as a f---ing liar, you f---ing naysayer.  

    I am sorry man, that was just the hurt talking.  My girlfriend left me, job is too much, and I have no dog to kick.  I can kick my cat, but he will stalk me and viciously attack me back when I am least prepared (he once bit me in the jugular when I was sleeping, another time he sank his canines through the fleshy pad of my thumb to the bone and I had to take antibiotics for a hwhile...you can take the cat out of the streets but you can't take the etc. and so forth).  These posts are my feet and you are all my cat.  We only hurt the ones we love (unless we really really love them, then we wouldn't hurt them, but that's like totally different).

    To me Fisher gets the edge,  he was at an insanely higher level at age 13, which is evident with some of the grandmasters he beat.....his resources and background were nothing like Kasparov's either....self taught also?????....to me there really is no comparison....he was at such a high level, if not the highest, that without the randomness of the pieces, he simply got bored of the game..., there were times he had no real competition...R.I.P Bobby !!!!!
