-ER Fischer
Compiled by fredthebear

This is a collection split. The Lasker games are in their own collection now.

A special tip o' the hat to chess historian Edward Winter. The entire chess world owes Mr. Winter a huge debt of gratitude for his steadfast historical research of our fascinating game and it's many stories. He is a great champion of the game too!

My friend, I am afraid despite being a Fischer fan that I must disagree with you that Fischer was the best player in the world in 1960. Fischer was wiped out by Tal (0-4) in 1959. And Tal was World Champion in 1960 and 1961.

You cannot lose 4-0 to another and claim to be the best in the world; there is no excuse to losing 4-0 to another player in serious games. That result is incredibly telling! #

Just to add some facts; Gligoric beat Fischer 4 times, lost once and drew 6 times until 1962. When these two met in 1966 and thereafter, Fischer never lost to Gligoric. Fischer won or drew. Again until 1965, Reshevsky seemed to have been Fischer's match; but from 1966 onwards Fischer beat Reshevsky 5 times, losing no game and drawing thrice.

Therefore, it appears that Fischer became the world's strongest player from around 1966. This is my view. #
