Fischer and Kasparov: the Patzers
Compiled by GumboGambit
--*--

Lowlights in the chess careers of Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov. Fischer was a petulant manchild, who left whenever things didnt go his way. Kasparov was the man who represented the human race against computers, AND FAILED!

I did not include their many losses against WC's. In fact much of the competition isn't even GM level. Everyone keeps saying these guys were pretty good, but looking at these games, I just do not see it. ;)
