ROBERT JAMES FISCHER
(born Mar-09-1943, died Jan-17-2008, 64 years old) United States of America (federation/nationality Iceland)

[what is this?]
Robert James ("Bobby") Fischer was born on March 9, 1943 in Chicago. At 13, he won the stunning brilliancy D Byrne vs Fischer, 1956, which Hans Kmoch christened "The Game of the Century." At 14, he won the US Championship (1957/58), making him the youngest U.S. Champion ever.

Fischer's victory qualified him for the Portoroz Interzonal (1958). He tied for 5th–6th, which sufficed to advance him to the Candidates Tournament to decide the challenger to World Champion Mikhail Botvinnik. It also made him, at 15, the youngest grandmaster ever - a record that stood until Judit Polgar broke it in 1991. At the Bled-Zagreb-Belgrade Candidates (1959), Fischer finished fifth out of eight, the top non-Soviet player.

Fischer won the US Championship all eight times he played, in each case by at least a point. In the US Championship (1963/64) he achieved the only perfect score (11-0) in the history of the tournament.

He won the Stockholm Interzonal (1962) 2½ points ahead of Efim Geller and Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian. This made him a favorite to win the Curacao Candidates (1962), but he only finished fourth, behind Petrosian, Geller, and Paul Keres.

In a famous article in Sports Illustrated magazine, The Russians Have Fixed World Chess, Fischer accused the Soviets of cheating: Petrosian, Geller, and Keres had drawn all 12 of the games among themselves at Curaçao. Because of this, he refused to play in the next Candidates cycle. He did play in the Sousse Interzonal (1967), but left it while leading, because of a scheduling dispute occasioned by Fischer's refusal to play on Saturday, his Sabbath.

He won the Palma de Mallorca Interzonal (1970) by a record 3½ points. The following year, he shocked the chess world by sweeping the Fischer - Taimanov Candidates Quarterfinal (1971) and Fischer - Larsen Candidates Semifinal (1971) by identical 6-0 scores, the only perfect scores in the history of the Candidates Matches. He also won the first game of his Candidates final against former World Champion Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian, giving him a modern record of 20 consecutive wins at the highest level of competition. He won the Fischer - Petrosian Candidates Final (1971) by 6½-2½ to advance to the World Championship match against reigning champion Boris Spassky. This also gave him a FIDE rating of 2785, making him at that time the highest-rated player in history.

In Reykjavik, he won the Fischer - Spassky World Championship Match (1972) by 12½-8½ to become the 11th World Chess Champion. In 1975, Fischer forfeited his title after FIDE refused to meet his conditions for a World Championship match with Anatoly Karpov. He then virtually disappeared from the public eye for nearly 20 years.

After ending his competitive career, he proposed a new variant of chess and a modified chess timing system. His idea of adding a time increment after each move is now standard, and his variant "Fischerandom" (or "Chess960") is gaining in popularity.(2)

Fischer resurfaced in 1992 to play a match against his old rival Spassky in Yugoslavia. Fischer won Fischer - Spassky (1992) 10-5 with 15 draws. The United States considered that Fischer, in playing this match in Yugoslavia, violated U.S. Treasury Department regulations that forbade transacting business with Yugoslavia. Fischer evaded authorities for twelve years until July 13, 2004, when he was arrested in Japan. On March 22, 2005, he was granted Icelandic citizenship and finally freed from Japan. He died of renal failure in Iceland on January 17, 2008 at the age of 64.

Fischer's anthology, My 60 Memorable Games, was published in 1969. It has been described as a "classic of objective and painstaking analysis,"1 and is regarded as one of the great classics of chess literature.

  Sally Simpson: Hi todicav23,

" Also, there's no great chess player born in 1979."

Peter Leko, world championship finalist, you can add him in to make the list complete. Of course someone will happen along and say he is not great but he's not too bad a player, not everyone's favourite player I'll grant you, but not too bad a player.

Also interesting to note that Pele was born in 1940 and three years later Bobby Fischer.

Whose name do you link most with Bobby Fischer, it has to be Boris Spassky who was born in 1937 three years before Pele.

Your three cycle theory stands, it is no longer a theory but a fact. Well Done!

(PS: Wes So was born three years after Carlsen, there is your next World Champion.)

  Joshka: <todicav23> Did Karpov mention that he met Fischer for the first time in San Antonio? I recall Karpov talking about a Washington D.C visit and a bit later in Tokyo. Also a 3rd visit at the Philippine Embassy. But I don't recall what country that was. There is a picture of Bobby signing autographs at the American Open in a Chess Life magazine from 1973. Never have seen any photos of Bobby in San Antonio, and never heard or read about Karpov meeting him there as well. If you have the goods. let us know!! Thanks in advance!

I found the article:

https://en.chessbase.com/post/karpo...

Irwin Fisk: Had you met Fischer before you became the challenger?

Anatoly Karpov: Yes, I met Fischer when he became world champion, three months later.

IWF: Where was this?

AK: This was in San Antonio. There was this organizer, Mr. Church, who invited Fischer for the closing ceremony on the last day, so Fischer arrived. This was my first meeting with Fischer. He knew all the others [players]. He had played with them before, but we had never met. Fischer came five minutes before the round, so he shook hands with everybody, every participant. Then he disappeared and so he didn’t stay for the closing ceremony. I didn’t see him anymore, only this one minute.

Dec-07-16  Petrosianic: <keypusher> <Now explain to me how that makes him a lesser player than Morphy.>

He wasn't an American.

<How exactly is my post silly? Isn't this a forum where people can say their opinions?>

Yes, and I said mine! Funny how that works.

You started by saying that Morphy and Fischer were the only "super" players. But once challenged you hastened to state that you didn't mean that, for example, Morphy was better than Capablanca. So what does "super" mean? Anything?

By "didn't show any sign of weakness" I guess you mean they didn't lose any of the matches they played. If by "show any sign of weakness" you mean literally "show any sign of weakness" then you're way off base:

Anderssen vs Morphy, 1858

Spassky vs Fischer, 1972

How do you know Capablanca was at his best or near his best when he lost to Alekhine? <visayanbraindoctor>, at least, has argued that Capa was not at his best in 1927, because of the cumulative effects of hypertension. Certainly his results after 1922 were not that wonderful.

But suppose he'd made like Fischer and Morphy and retired after beating Lasker, or after his dominating performance at London 1922. What would you say then?

Capablanca had defeated Kostic and Lasker in matches without losing a single game, while cruising through tournaments at New York, Hastings and London, the second a genuine supertournament. In fact, he hadn't lost a game since 1916!

Morphy beat Harrwitz, Loewenthal, and Anderssen in matches, losing several times in each match. Compared to Lasker, those three were patzers. And Morphy had won a tournament in New York, against opponents Capablanca could comfortably have given a simul against.

Under your own criteria, Capablanca blows Morphy away. (Similar arguments could be constructed for Lasker, Alekhine, Botvinnik, Tal, and Kasparov.)

Even if Capablanca had been at or near his best in 1927, your criteria would make no sense. Who was Morphy's strongest contemporary? Steinitz. How did Morphy do against Steinitz? Who was Fischer's strongest contemporary? Karpov. Kasparov, if Fischer had kept playing another 15 years. How did Fischer do against Karpov and Kasparov? How does not playing your strongest opposition make you "super"?

Every player who keeps playing eventually gets beat. No exceptions (after Philidor). The only way you don't get beat is you quit. In your view, quitting makes you a super player. That is a ridiculous belief, and deserves condemnation. In my opinion.

  Joshka: <todicav23> Thanks, I also recall in Karpov's book "Chess Is My Life" he relates the Washington D.C. meeting, where they had a quiet dinner. Some match discussion

took place, and then when Fischer was ready to check out, he went to Karpov's room, and told him......."just to let you know, don't be surprised if I play a match with someone else soon." Or something like this,. I do not claim it to be verbatim.

A good point. Carlsen will likely retain his title two years from now. ;-)

  AylerKupp: <<keypusher> The only way you don't get beat is you quit.>

That reminds me of the ending to the movie "War Games". After asked to play "Global Thermonuclear War" the computer says: "Interesting game. The only way to win is not to play."

And then, of course (just to keep it on topic), the computer suggests: "How about a nice game of chess?"

Dec-08-16  Petrosianic: A memorable moment, but also a cringeworthy one, where we try to put our own viewpoint into an outside source (which is really an inside one, since we're writing it). Of course a computer wouldn't consider a No Contest to be a "Victory" at all, but we have it telling us what we want to hear.
Dec-08-16  Petrosianic: Speaking of games you "win" (wink, wink) by not playing, I remember a Spades variant a couple of friends and I played in college. One friend said he'd heard about it from his brother, so we decided to try it.

I don't remember it all, but it was some kind of variant of Spades where you had to make your bid EXACTLY. We kept finding ways to either bust a bid or force someone to take an extra trick he didn't want. At first it was fun, but we played it for hours and nobody could win the stupid game. It was too easy to force excess tricks on someone.

In the middle of the night, we gave up, and told the guy who told us about the game to go tell his stupid brother that nobody would win it. A week later he said he'd done it, and that his brother had said "Oh, I forgot to tell you. It only works if you're drunk."

I guess when you cant beat Bobby at the board, you settle for second best.

After all, decades later you'll be telling yourself how sweet the victory was.

If that were the case, I'd be really angry, because not only could i not beat Fischer, but I can't beat people many levels below him. More angry with a certain attitude towards excellence. As usual, someone else said it better:

<I cannot praise a fugitive and cloistered virtue, unexercised and unbreathed, that never sallies out and sees her adversary, but slinks out of the race where that immortal garland is to be run for, not without dust and heat.>

Dec-08-16  todicav23: <keypusher> Why does it feel like I'm arguing with a wall? Read my posts again and try to understand what I was saying.

<You started by saying that Morphy and Fischer were the only "super" players. But once challenged you hastened to state that you didn't mean that, for example, Morphy was better than Capablanca. So what does "super" mean? Anything?> Intentionally I didn't use "greatest players", "strongest players" or "best players". I decided to use "super players" having in mind a single criterion, namely "not showing signs of weakness at the best". This is just a forum, I don't have time to write formal definitions so you can understand what I'm saying.

<How do you know Capablanca was at his best or near his best when he lost to Alekhine?> Capablanca was the World champion in 1927 and he won New York 1927 by a 2.5 point margin. Alekhine was second. If you check the Wikipedia page of the tournament you will find that "Capablanca was in superb form and won easily". So you can argue that Capablanca was near his best in 1927. Even if that is not the case, there is a high chance that Capablanca was near his best in 1924. But he didn't win the strong tournament held in New York, 1924. Lasker won it, while Capablanca was 1.5 point behind. It is really hard to believe that he was not near his best while being world champion. So my point still stands: Capablanca near his best showed weaknesses by not winning New York 1924 and the match with Alekhine.

<But suppose he'd made like Fischer and Morphy and retired after beating Lasker, or after his dominating performance at London 1922. What would you say then?> I already acknowledged that both Morphy and Fischer retired too early and that's one reason why they seemed invincible at their best. To answer your question, I would probably say the same thing I said about Morphy and Fischer. What's your point?

<Morphy beat Harrwitz, Loewenthal, and Anderssen in matches, losing several times in each match. Compared to Lasker, those three were patzers. And Morphy had won a tournament in New York, against opponents Capablanca could comfortably have given a simul against.> Morphy was stronger than you actually think:

Morphy - Anderssen 13 - 4
Steinitz - Anderssen 11 - 11

Note that Steinitz is actually older than Morphy. Also, Steinitz played an older Anderssen compared with Morphy.

<Even if Capablanca had been at or near his best in 1927, your criteria would make no sense. Who was Morphy's strongest contemporary? Steinitz. How did Morphy do against Steinitz? Who was Fischer's strongest contemporary? Karpov. Kasparov, if Fischer had kept playing another 15 years. How did Fischer do against Karpov and Kasparov? How does not playing your strongest opposition make you "super"?> Once again, I'm not trying to establish the greatest or strongest player ever. Similar criteria with mine have been used before. One example is the dominance over the peers. I don't see why my criterion does not make any sense. It is not quantifiable, just like many other criteria used to compare players but it is a valid criterion.

<Every player who keeps playing eventually gets beat. No exceptions (after Philidor). The only way you don't get beat is you quit. In your view, quitting makes you a super player. That is a ridiculous belief, and deserves condemnation. In my opinion.> This proves that you didn't get my point. I was talking about chess players performing at their best. Of course, a 53 years old Lasker lost to Capablanca without a fight because he was past his prime.

Work on your comprehension skills and read careful what people are trying to say. Don't make confusions and say that a post is silly because you just make a fool of yourself.
