  3. Fischer vs the World Champions Decisive Games
    The Romance of the Chess World Championship Match and the World Champions that won them:

    There can only be Two.

    The Champion to hold the Title he beat all the masters for.

    The Challenger on quest for same Title of yore.

    Robert James Fischer

    Bobby Fischer in general had good scores against his fellow World Champions. Only Tal had a plus score against him; while Euwe and Botvinnik had tied scores. Fischer had plus scores against Smyslov, Petrosian, and Spassky.

    The most peculiar of all World Champions outside of chess for his adamant views on his own USA government, Russians, and Jews, Fischer also left a taint to his otherwise sterling competitive record by defaulting two matches that, after all is said and done, he probably doubted his ability to win - the unfinished 1961 Reshevsky Match and the would-be 1975 World Championship Match with Karpov - giving rise to more or less permanent notions among some chess pundits that he got scared and ran away.

    Over the chessboard Fischer developed a clear flowing accurate style reminiscent of his favorite players Morphy and Capablanca, that could be relatively easy to study and understand but so extremely difficult to face that Fischer's opponents were often said to be hopelessly intimidated even at the start of each game.

    In his prime in 1970 to 1972, Fischer totally dominated the chessworld as no other player ever has, before or since. His incredible 19 straight victories in the Interzonals - Candidates matches of 1970 to 1971, including a wipe-out of two Candidates matches (Taimanov 6 - 0 and Larsen 6 - 0) was such a massive crush of the world's top players that it should have been impossible, save that it actually happened. I believe that this 1969 to 1972 version of Fischer (and the Capablanca of 1916 to 1924) was the strongest human player ever to exist in chess history.

    Robert James Fischer tied Max Euwe 1 to 1, with 1 draw

  4. Fischer's Blitz Games at Herceg Novi, 1970
    This collection contains the 22 games Fischer played at the 1970 Herceg Novi blitz event, certainly the strongest five-minute tournament of the 20th century. The twelve participants were Fischer, Tal, Korchnoi, Petrosian, Bronstein, Hort, Matulovich, Smyslov, Reshevsky, Uhlmann, Ivkov, and Ostojic. Fischer utterly dominated this super-strong field with a 19-3 score (17 wins, four draws, and one loss), 4 1/2 points better than 2nd place finisher Tal. This result makes a compelling argument that Fischer is the strongest blitz player of all time.
    22 games, 1970

  5. I want to see How Karpov Wins
    Creating a passed pawn versus discovering one: watching the master at work.
    6 games, 1971-2006

  6. Kasparov's Black Power Takes Linares
    This game collection contains the five(!), that's right count'em five(!), Black Sicilian wins that Kasparov amazingly ran up at the Linares 1999 chess tournament, against the top players in the world.

    Just think about that for a second. In a single tournament, Kasparov scored Black wins over Anand, Topalov, Svidler, Adams, and Ivanchuk! In the same tournament! All Sicilians! Always playing Black!


    The title of this game collection comes from the New In Chess Magazine article ( which analyzed this stupendous achievement by Kasparov.
