99999_Kasparov-Smyslov 1984 Candidates final
Compiled by whiteshark
--*--

Final match in Vilnius, Lithuania - March 09th to April 11th, 1984 -

In 1984 the candidates finals match to decide Karpov’s challenger was between 21 year old Gary Kasparov and 63 year old Vasily Smyslov. Smyslov was having a second youth and his chess was refreshingly original and dynamic.

"The time controls are standard for international match play, with each player having 2 1/2 hours for the first 40 moves. Should the game be unfinished after five hours of play, the players adjourn and continue the following day with a 16 -move-per-hour time control. The first player to score 8 1/2 points wins, with one point awarded for a victory and half a point for a draw. Should the match be deadlocked at 8-8 after the scheduled 16 games, up to two sets of two-game tie-breakers can be played." Source: http://www.csmonitor.com/1984/0326/...

The highlights...

Kasparov DVD,Video 14: Kandidatenfinale gegen Smyslov Als Kasparov gegen Smyslov im Kandidatenfinale spielte, war Smyslov dreimal so alt wie er - 63 Jahre. Kasparov war 21 Jahre alt. Der Wettkampf war einfacher als der gegen Kortschnoj, aber nicht so leicht, wie das Ergebnis von 8,5:4,5 vielleicht glauben machen könnte. Auch mit 63 Jahren war der frühere Weltmeister noch ein ausgezeichneter Spieler, zudem mit großer Erfahrung. <Kasparov berichtet, wie seltsamerweise das Endergebnis und die Ergebnisse jeder einzelnen Partie von einem Parapsychologen in Kiew korrekt vorausgesagt worden waren. Der Mann hatte seine Vorhersage an den Schiedsrichter Ostrowsky geschickt, der diese Kasparov-Trainer Nikitin weitersagte.> Kasparov berichtet vom Verlauf des Wettkampfes und zeigt die 9. Matchpartie. Dauer des Videos: 11' 20'' http://shop.chessbase.com/de/produc...

<Kasparov analyzes all the games of the match in his book <"The Test of Time">> - can someone verify this anonymous http://lizzyknowsall.blogspot.de/20... internet quote?
