REVIEW Ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ò Bobby Fischer In this book published by Simon and Schuster in Bobby Fischer analyzes My 60 MOBI #10003 his most important and representative games He shows. If you're a chess player and you haven't read this book I'm struggling to complete the sentence It's sort of like you claim to be a Christian but haven't read the Bible You'd better do something about itThe short list for greatest chess player of all time only has two names Fischer and Kasparov Kasparov had the unuestionable advantage of being sane so he lasted much longer But when Fischer was in the zone he was so ferociously unstoppable that no real comparison is available No one else has ever won a Candidates match World Championship uarter final and subseuent with a clean sweep Fischer did it twice My 60 Memorable Games is his only book He wasn't really a writer and apparently he had to get help from Larry Evans to do the parts that weren't just game annotations It matters about as much as the fact that Mozart didn't also write the libretto to The Magic Flute Before Fischer people only ever put wins in their game collections and entitled them So and So's Best Games Fischer knew he was the best so he prioritized interesting games even if there were a few he didn't win He includes his horribly painful loss to Spassky where Spassky surprised him by playing the King's Gambit at that time a completely unfashionable choice Fischer was so angry that he went off and a few months later published his famous article containing what he claimed to be a refutation of this opening He also has the eually unpleasant loss to Geller where they got into a complicated middle game position with competing attacks and Fischer missed a forced win Most people would just have tried to forget these games not wanted to tell the whole world about themOf course most of the games are wins It feels a bit silly to recommend specific examples; it's rather like telling people that Shakespeare's Sonnet XVIII is uite good and Hamlet isn't bad either But if I had to pick one out I guess the 1963 game against Robert Byrne Fischer plays an incredibly complex and well calculated sacrifice; according to legend I will be so disappointed if I discover this isn't in fact true the commentator was saying that Fischer had got it wrong and Byrne was winning when Byrne having seen deeply finally understood the point of Fischer's idea and resigned You don't see that kind of thing very often But then you don't see talent like Fischer's very often either In any field

READ My 60 Memorable Games ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ [BOOKS] ⚡ My 60 Memorable Games ✯ Bobby Fischer – In this book published by Simon and Schuster in 1969 Bobby Fischer analyzes his most important and representative games He shows the strategic considerations the tactics and sometimes t The strategic considerations the tactics and sometimes the blunders that occur during the pressure of tournament play He assesses his opponents. BrilliantBobby Fischer is without uestion a chess geniusAs a person Fischer is an enigma He is a very high genius who as a young man exploded on the chess scene like a supernova He won the US Chess Championships at the age of 14 an amazing feat by itself but only the beginningHe is best known for his winning the World Championship from Boris Spassky in the 1970's While many know this they do not know how amazing that feat really wasInternational Chess is not the easiest forum to play in In the 1970's and before it was dominated by the Russians That is still true to some extent today but not like it was back in the 1970's Winning Chess tournaments where there were so many Russians involved was difficult especially because to put it nicely the Russians would work as a team to help their designated leaders win To put it not so nicely they would help each other so that they would create the result that they wanted Agreed upon draws after only a few moves were common Collaboration on adjourned games was commonBobby Fischer's accomplishment in winning the world championship in this setting is a testament to his brilliance and his perseverance Bobby played to win always A planned draw just wasn't in his natureAs an individual Bobby Fischer beat them on his own and he has never really been given the credit he deservedThat having been said Bobby Fischer has always been something of a recluse and for that reason the world has been robbed of his genius as he has dropped from the scene and arisen only occasionally to world noticeHe replayed Spassky and ran afoul of US immigration and has had legal problems since then Recently he turned up in Japan and last I heard was granted citizenship and asylum in Iceland where ironically he originally played Spassky back in the 70'sAll this is to say that this book represents Fischer's brilliance and unfortunately there are few other sources in which to find it in terms of his analysis and commentaryOther reviews refer to the reprints which have altered the original and so the discerning buyer should make sure he is getting an original Unfortunately they usually are not cheapIt is truly a gem and valuable for it's insight into chess as well as the rarity of its existence and being hard to findSay what you will about Fischer's social ualities there has never been his match in Chess and when you understand what he accomplished how passionate he was and is about Chess and how difficult his accomplishments were you have to just give him a tremendous amount of credit

Bobby Fischer Ò 6 READ

My 60 Memorable Games’ thinking as well Each game has in addition to Fischer's own annotations an analytical introduction by International Grandmaster Larry Evans. Fischer is an enigma He was probably one of the two strongest chess players of all time For a spell in the 1960s and 1970s there was no one to touch him He introduced a strength of self belief and focused concentration that was frankly scary Playing through his games you still get an incredible sense of anger and fire This was someone who absolutely had to win The Mike Tyson of the chessboard That's Mike Tyson at his imperious best not the ear chewer of later declining timesBut You have to admit that he is not an easy person to love That same monomania that made him a fearsome opponent also made him an uncomfortable person to live with His demands for the 1972 World Championship match with Spassky seem than a little childish The jury is still out on whether this was a deliberate attempt to unnerve Spassky a legitimate desire to improve playing conditions or a symptom of Fischer's inner demons For what it's worth my money is on the latter but that's a story for another timeAnd the less said about his outspoken views on women and religion the betterThere is another problem for those of us who don't stand up when the marching band starts oh say can you see Fischer is absolutely idolised by some of his countrymen In their eyes he can do no wrong And that can make it feel like a club that the rest of the world is not invited to join Put all of that to one side My 60 memorable games is rightly a classic This is Fischer at his best A chess book that you simply have to own whether you are a Fischer fan or not
