    Another one of these threads, really? There's no way to know. So get over it.

    actually kasparov played a brilliant game where he sacrificed his queen on move 12 against Kramnik and won the game. http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1070732

     

    So I doubt Fischer would win this way.

    These comparisons between different era are always kind of useless. Chess changes and advances, and the great champions are the ones who change and advance it. Every great champion writes the textbook for the next generation.

    It depends a lot on their ages; presently, as things stand, Gazza is favourite.

    Kasparov due to the fact that his understanding of Najdorf, Queen's Pawn Game, and King's Indian positions is deeper and calculates better.  He is just too strategically sound, not to say Fischer wasn't of course, and Fischer would certainly be capable of getting his points (Petrosian defeated Kasparov brilliantly in the 80s) though Kasparov would come out ahead.  

    From looking at Kasparov's book on Fischer we can deduce that Kasparov had a thorough and complete understanding of Fischer's psychology, so we know he has that advantage too.

    Or Botvinnik, so long as Tal's creative faculties are defective.

    This is all pretty silly. Every great champion teaches a lesson and the great champions who come after him learn those lesson as part of their chess education. Fischer grew up learning the lessons that Morphy, Capablanca, and Alekhine taught. He also absorbed the best of the Soviet School, before sweeping it into the dust bin of history. The young Kasparov was an ardent student of Fischer's games, even modeling his opening repertoire after Fischer's.

    Fischer at his peak (10/1971, rating 2895), and Kasparov at his peak  (3/1993, rating 2886), were about equal. (ChessMetrics)

    For a single game it is anybody's guess.  For a match, I would give Fischer the slightest of edges.

    Was the game I had in mind.  I mentioned Petrosian specifically because he's a top-class player who has played against both Fischer and Kasparov.

    good question

     

    Gary used chess programs to prepare for games....did fischer?

    Of course not! There were no decent chess computers when Fischer was in his prime. The best chess playing program was probably around 900 and ran on a 3-ton computer

    Joe Louis would beat Kasparov and Jesse Owens would have taken care of Fischer.
