How to become like Bobby Fischer?

fallingboulder

I'm trying my hardest to become like Bobby Fischer. I already follow his studying style I spend every waking minute studying or playing chess. No getting up allowed! I just have to find his opening repertoire so I can play exactly like him. Bobby Fischer is my life hero.

Study every single game of Fischer from 1970 to 1972 (when he was at his peak), especially look at the win and drawn games, in particular note how his openings lead to what kinds of middlegame positions and try to understand his mentality for how to approach chess.

and do u think it will help op become like Fischer? come on, talent is god gifted and Fischer was born to play chess.. op can become a top gm if he studies chess seriously, but he can or no one can ever be like Fischer. Fischer is Fischer. :)

You can learn to play like Fischer but it will not be easy.  Fischer believed in basic chess rules and rarely departed from them.  Fischer also studied the games of the Masters and memorized the opening moves of all popular openings.

Fischer was arguably one of the best chess players who ever lived if not the best. it gives me no pleasure telling you this but you can't. no-one currently alive on earth can, not even Magnus Carlson.

You should pick a role model who doesn't need to resort to mind games in order to win. Try to emulate a gentleman like Karpov or Kingscrusher to look up to instead.

This should help you understand my point better.

im sorry to say this but there are GM that study 10 hours a day and after years they are not even close to be as fischer, how old are you he was a GM when he was like 15 or 16 and used to beat other GMs to 6-0 in other words fischer and kasparov are not from this world

Put 6 chess boards in your room, all with tough positions to work through at all times.

 

Put 4 screens, 1 on each of the walls. There must always be a master game playing on them.

 

Always have an audio of chess study playing in the room, even when you go to sleep. Fuse it with calm sounds.

 

Get a chequered bed cover. And if you can, put a mirror on the ceiling to see yourself on the chequered covers every time you look up.

 

Do this, and you might succeed.

 

P.S. always, and I mean always keep pot plants in this room, and water bowls (fish bowls will do).
