In the 70s when Fischer was in his prime he was literally unbeatable and known as The Dragon Slayer of his time. Imagine sitting across the table from him as an IM. You have the chance of a lifetime, to scalp Fischer. Your primary weapon is the Sicilian Dragon and you have the chance to test it against the best on the planet. When the excitement clears your mind starts to wander. Then reality sets in and you start hoping to give him a good game. More reality creeps in and you start praying to make it to move 40. Then, after all is said and done, you get manhandled and crushed. I equate an IM playing Fischer to be like me playing an IM. I don't stand a chance and I know it. Hats off to Camara for giving it a go, albeit a brief one.
