9780923891596: The Games of Robert J. Fischer

Was Bobby Fischer the Greatest Player Ever? The question often asked is: Was Bobby Fischer the Greatest Player Ever? It is clear that Fischer was better than any player who preceded him, including Capablanca who, according to Professor Elo in his book "The Rating of Chess Players, Past and Present" ISBN 0923891277, was the greatest player prior to Fischer. However, Capablanca was only slightly better overall than his contemporaries, Lasker and Alekhine. Elo rated Capablanca at 2725 followed by Lasker and Botvinnik tied with 2720 and then Alekhine at 2690. The question now is: Was Fischer better than his successors, Garry Kasparov, Anatoly Karpov, Anand and Topalov? The answer usually given is that there is no comparison. Kasparov was only slightly better than Karpov. In fact, over their five matches for the World Chess Championship over a period of six years, their score was almost dead even, with Kasparov ahead by only 68-66 in the 134 games that they played. Now compare this to the score of 12 ½ - 7 ½ in games actually played in the Fischer-Spassky Match. Not only was Fischer much better, but Spassky was without doubt the second best player in the world, as compared to most other eras when there was and still is great doubt as to who was the second best player.

About the Author:

Robert G. Wade was a chess player, author, journalist, and coach. Born on April 10, 1921 in Dunedin, New Zealand, he won the New Zealand championship three times before moving to England in 1948 to further his chess career. He was best known for playing in high level tournaments, including one Interzonal, for winning the British Championship twice, and for writing more than 30 books, of which the most famous by far is this one, “The Chess Games of Robert J. Fischer”, which was later reprinted with more games added as “The Chess Games of Bobby Fischer”. His most famous games were his draw with Bobby Fischer (not many players ever got a draw with Bobby Fischer) in the 1965 Capablanca Memorial in Havana Cuba, in which Bobby played by telex from the Marshall Chess Club since the US State Department banned travel to Cuba, his defeat of Korchnoi in Buenos Aires 1960 and his draw with Grandmaster Murray Chandler in New Zealand in 2006 at age 85.
