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

    Bobby Fischer will win by sacrificing his queen.

    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.

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

    True

    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.

    Classical games: Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian tied Garry Kasparov 2 to 2, with 1 draw.    Kasparov had white in all 5 games .

    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.

    Fischer. 

    But he would have probably been too scared to play Kasparov.

    Here's how they themselves sized up the situation.   (Fischer of course sounding like the a hole he was.)

     

    If one may judge a player's strength by comparing him with his contemporaries, it seems to me that Fischer's achievement is unsurpassed. The gap between him and his closest rivals was the widest there ever was between a World Champion and the other top-ranking players of his time. He was some 10-15 years ahead of his time in his preparation and understanding. This could be attributed in part to his dedication to the game, which was unequaled by any other player before or since. -- Garry Kasparov

     

    I object to being called a chess genius, because I consider myself to be an all around genius, who just happens to play chess, which is rather different. A piece of garbage like Kasparov might be called a chess genius, but he is like an idiot savant, outside of chess he knows nothing. -- Bobby Fischer
