  10. My 60 Memorable Games/Fischer
    These quotes and games are from the out-of-print book My 60 Memorable Games.

    Authors Preface
    The 60 games annotated in this volume were al during 1957 through '67 and, with the exception of nos. 44 and 50, under strict tournament conditions. The notes frequently include reference to additional games, occsionally presenting them in full. An interested reader will find 34 of my earlier efforts in Bobby Fischer's Chess Games (Simon and Schuster, 1959). All 60 here offer contain, for me, something memorable and exciting---even the 3 losses. I have tried to be both candid and precise in my elucidations in the hope that they would offer insights into chess that wil lead to fuller understanding and better play. Finally I wish to express my gratitude to Larry Evans, friend and colleague, for his invaluable aid in preparation of the text well as foir his lucid introductions Robert J. Fischer

  13. Paul Morphy Conquered the World Says Fredthebear
    "I consider Mr. Morphy the finest chess player who ever existed. He is far superior to any now living, and would doubtless have beaten Labourdonnais himself. In all his games with me, he has not only played, in every instance, the exact move, but the most exact. He never makes a mistake; but, if his adversary commits the slightest error, he is lost." Adolf Anderssen, quoted by Frederick Edge in 1859

    "Morphy will not let me." former unofficial world champion Adolf Anderssen, when asked why he did not play as brilliantly as usual against Paul Morphy.

    "Paul Morphy was the greatest chess player that ever one ever was so far superior to the players of his time" Dr. Emanuel Lasker, Lasker's Chess Magazine of January 1905, p.127

    "In Paul Morphy the spirit of La Bourdonnais had arisen anew, only more vigorous, firmer, prouder... Morphy discovered that the brilliant move of the master is essentially conditional not on a sudden and inexplicable realisation, but on the placing of the pieces on the board. He introduced the rule: brilliant moves and deep winning manoeuvres are possible only in those positions where the opponent can be opposed with an abundance of active energy... From the very first moves Morphy aimed to disclose the internal energy located in his pieces. It was suddenly revealed that they possess far greater dynamism than the opponent's forces." Emanuel Lasker

    "Morphy's principal strength does not rest upon his power of combination but in his position play and his general style....Beginning with la Bourdonnais to the present, and including Lasker, we find that the greatest stylist has been Morphy. Whence the reason, although it might not be the only one, why he is generally considered the greatest of all." José Raúl Capablanca, in Pablo Morphy by V. F. Coria and L. Palau.

    "...Morphy, the master of all phases of the game, stronger than any of his opponents, even the strongest of them..." Alexander Alekhine, in Shakmatny Vestnik, January 15, 1914

    "To this day Morphy is an unsurpassed master of the open games. Just how great was his significance is evident from the fact that after Morphy nothing substantially new has been created in this field. Every player- from beginner to master- should in this praxis return again and again to the games of the American genius." Mikhail Botvinnik

    "A popularly held theory about Paul Morphy is that if he returned to the chess world today and played our best contemporary players, he would come out the loser. Nothing is further from the truth. In a set match, Morphy would beat anybody alive today... Morphy was perhaps the most accurate chess player who ever lived. He had complete sight of the board and never blundered, in spite of the fact that he played quite rapidly, rarely taking more than five minutes to decide a move. Perhaps his only weakness was in closed games like the Dutch Defense. But even then, he was usually victorious because of his resourcefulness." Bobby Fischer

    "Morphy, I think everyone agrees, was probably the greatest genius of them all." Bobby Fischer, 1992

    "We also remember the brilliant flight of the American super-genius Paul Morphy, who in a couple of years (1857-59) conquered both the New and the Old Worlds. He revealed a thunderous blend of pragmatism, aggression and accurate calculation to the world -- qualities that enabled America to accomplish a powerful spurt in the second half of the 19th century." Garry Kasparov (2003). On My Great Predecessors. Gloucester Publishers plc. Vol. 1, p. 6.

    "What was the secret of Morphy's invincibility? I think it was a combination of a unique natural talent and brilliant erudition. His play was the next, more mature stage in the development of chess. Morphy had a well-developed 'feeling for position', and therefore he can be confidently regarded as the 'first swallow' - the prototype of the strong 20th century grandmaster." Garry Kasparov (2003). On My Great Predecessors. Gloucester Publishers plc. Vol. 1, p. 43.

    If you don’t win, it’s not a great tragedy - the worst that happens is that you lose a game. – Bobby Fischer

    Don’t even mention losing to me. I can’t stand to think of it. – Bobby Fischer

    That's what chess is all about. One day you give your opponent a lesson, the next day he gives you one. – Bobby Fischer

    Chess is war over the board. The object is to crush the opponent's mind. – Bobby Fischer

    I like to make them squirm. – Bobby Fischer

    I like the moment when I break a man's ego. – Bobby Fischer

    Chess is a matter of delicate judgment, knowing when to punch and how to duck. – Bobby Fischer

    A strong memory, concentration, imagination, and a strong will. – Bobby Fischer (on what it took to become a strong chess player)

    It’s pretty tough because of all the tension and all the concentration, sitting there hour after hour. It’s ... exhausting. – Bobby Fischer

    Tactics flow from a superior position. – Bobby Fischer

    Best by test. – Bobby Fischer (on 1.e4)

    I wanted to give them something to think about when they prepare for me in future tournaments. – Bobby Fischer (on why he played 1.d4, 1.c4 & 1.Nf3 a few times)

    It's just a matter of throwing in a few sacrifices, then checkmate! – Bobby Fischer (on playing against the Sicilian Dragon)

    Concentrate on material gains. Whatever your opponent gives you take, unless you see a good reason not to. – Bobby Fischer

    My opponents make good moves too. Sometimes I don't take these things into consideration. – Bobby Fischer

    Yeah, I used to dress badly until I was about sixteen. But people just didn't seem to have enough respect for me, you know And I didn't like that, so I decided I'd have to show them they weren't any better than me, you know? They were sort of priding themselves. They would say, 'He beat us at chess, but he's still just an uncouth kid.' So I decided to dress up. – Bobby Fischer

    Lots of the time I'm traveling around. Europe, South America, Iceland. But when I'm home, I don't know, I don't do much. I get up at eleven o'clock maybe. I'll get dressed and all, look at some chess books, go downstairs and eat. I never cook my own meals. I don't believe in that stuff. I don't eat in luncheonettes or Automats either. I like a waiter to wait on me. Good restaurants. After I eat I usually call up some of my chess friends, go over and analyze a game or something. Maybe I'll go to a chess club. Then maybe I'll see a movie or something. There's really nothing for me to do. Maybe I'll study some chess book. – Bobby Fischer

    They have nothing on me, those guys. They can't even touch me. Some people rate them better than me. That really bugs me. They think that no Americans play chess. When I meet those Russian patzers I'll put them in their place. – Bobby Fischer

    I haven't had any congratulations from Spassky yet. I think I'll send him a telegram. Congratulations on winning the right to meet me for the championship. – Bobby Fischer (after defeating Petrosian in the '71 Candidates Final)

    I'm not afraid of Spassky. The world knows I'm the best. You don't need a match to prove it. – Bobby Fischer (just prior to their '72 match)

    I am the best player in the world and I am here to prove it. – Bobby Fischer

    In chess so much depends on opening theory, so the champions before the last century did not know as much as I do and other players do about opening theory. So if you just brought them back from the dead they wouldn’t do well. They’d get bad openings. You cannot compare the playing strength, you can only talk about natural ability. Memorization is enormously powerful. Some kid of fourteen today, or even younger, could get an opening advantage against Capablanca, and especially against the players of the previous century, like Morphy and Steinitz. Maybe they would still be able to outplay the young kid of today. Or maybe not, because nowadays when you get the opening advantage not only do you get the opening advantage, you know how to play, they have so many examples of what to do from this position. It is really deadly, and that is why I don’t like chess any more. - Bobby Fischer

    They're all weak, all women. They're stupid compared to men. They shouldn't play chess, you know. They're like beginners. They lose every single game against a man. There isn't a woman player in the world I can't give knight-odds to and still beat. – Bobby Fischer

    Fischer is Fischer, but a horse is a horse. – Mikhail Tal (upon hearing Bobby Fischer’s claim that he could beat any female player in the world giving her knight odds)

    My God, he plays so simply! – Alexei Suetin (speaking of Bobby Fischer)

    It is difficult to play against Einstein’s theory. – Mikhail Tal (on his first loss to Fischer)

    Bobby just drops the pieces and they fall on the right squares. – Miguel Najdorf

    Do you realize Fischer almost never has any bad pieces? He exchanges them, and the bad pieces remain with his opponents. – Yuri Balashov

    Play out a boring game to the end and funny things can happen; Fischer knew it. – Hans Ree

    You know you're going to lose. Even when I was ahead I knew I was going to lose. – Andrew Soltis (on playing against Fischer)

    It began to feel as though you were playing against chess itself. – Walter Shipman (on playing against Fischer)

    When you play Bobby, it is not a question if you win or lose. It is a question if you survive. – Boris Spassky

    In complicated positions, Bobby hardly had to be afraid of anybody. – Paul Keres

    It was clear to me that the vulnerable point of the American grandmaster was in double-edged, hanging, irrational positions, where he often failed to find a win even in a won position. – Efim Geller (on Fischer)

    In Fischer's hands, a slight theoretical advantage is as good a being a queen ahead. – Isaac Kashdan

    His chess was always razor-sharp, rational and brilliant. One of the best ever. – Dave Regis (on Fischer)

    Bobby Fischer has an enormous knowledge of chess and his familiarity with the chess literature of the USSR is immense. – Boris Spassky

    He turned the methods of the Soviet school of chess against it: Botvinnik-style scientific study of all areas of the game, in-depth openings preparation that has probably only been equaled or bettered by Kasparov, and a passionate will to win that only Alekhine and Larsen could match. – John Nunn (on Fischer)

    As with Steinitz, Fischer's genius has often been concealed by controversies away from the board. Like Lasker, Fischer has raised chess to new financial heights despite frequent retreats from serious play. And, like Capablanca, Fischer is recognized by millions of non-players and has won the game many new enthusiasts. – Andy Soltis

    President of the chess players' trade union. – Boris Spassky (speaking of Fischer)

    The chess heroes nowadays should not forget that it was owing to Fischer that they are living today in four- and five-star hotels, getting appearance fees, etc. – Lev Khariton

    Of course a great player like that has no weak spots. What a player like that does have are absolutely strong spots, so you surely don't want him to utilize his strengths, because then your chances decrease to zero. It's not surprising - chess being as complicated as it is - that Fischer had the greatest problems with positions, which were unclear in an unthematic way. When in effect everything just depended on accurate calculation. In those kinds of positions, he is still better than me of course, but the difference is not that great anymore, because it's just extremely difficult for both of us. The chance that he will make an error increases, whereas in a thematic or technical position he will just play perfectly from beginning to end and your chances of surviving are zero. – Edmar Mednis

    With the development of chess and higher level of play, chess players lose their individual handwriting and there are fewer players with a clear style. We are moving to a versatile style. I can't say that Fischer had clear handwriting - he was a versatile player. In fact I would rather call it a cumulative style. In his better days he combined Smyslov's accuracy with Spassky's universalism and Alekhine's energy... His rationalism was his only weak spot, he was not that good at irrational and unsound positions. Here Spassky prevailed. Fischer had a clear blueprint for his play. Spassky's victory over him in the 11th game of the match was remarkable. He virtually tore Fischer apart in the Poisoned Pawn variation. It was not a matter of opening preparation, this kind of chess was simply difficult for Fischer. Of course, these are nuances, an attempt to find a weak link and demonstrate what kind of person he was. But Fischer admitted this weak spot himself and was trying to avoid those positions. - Vladimir Kramnik

    Crystal clear ideas were his strength. Fischer was perfect at the Ruy Lopez. It is difficult to create chaos on the board in this opening. - Vladimir Kramnik

    Fischer is a man with an acute form of pathology. He is a talent of Tal's and Kasparov's caliber, but maybe with less calculation ability. The unusual thing about him is that he divided himself into "White Fischer" and "Black Fischer." With the white pieces, Bobby pretended to be the greatest classic player, playing dry and precise chess, often draining his opponents in 60-move endgames. The Black Fischer, because of a pathological greed for points in the tournament table, strove for ultra sharp play in Korchnoi's manner. But his brain rebelled against such a heavy undertaking. It impaired Fischer's nervous system. This explains his fear to play in tournaments, too. - Alexsander Shashin

    Fischer discovered modern preparation in the opening. Unlike Botvinnik who realised the importance of preparation, Fischer gave it a modern slant: he set tasks for his opponent at every move with either colour and in every opening. Fischer kept his opponent busy from the very beginning, he started setting problems from the very first move! Later Kasparov improved this 'high-tension' style; and followed Fischer to some extent. Fischer was the first chess player to mount tension from the first till the last move without giving his opponent even the slightest break. He had a similar precept for both positional and tactical games: he tried to set as many tasks for his opponent as he could. He played very 'vigorous' chess. - Vladimir Kramnik

    He only takes a draw when it's hopeless or when he's afraid he might get hurt in the position. When I analyzed with him he would say: "I kill him if I get this position." He deplores positions without counterplay. Even if he's in bad shape, there must be tension. This is the essence of his chess style. And that's the difference between him and Reshevsky. Sammy can defend a passive position. – Arthur Bisguier (on Fischer)

    Fischer was a master of clarity and a king of artful positioning. His opponents would see where he was going but were powerless to stop him. I like to say that Bobby Fischer was the greatest Russian player ever. All of his great opening moves came from the Russians. He studied all of their methods. But what made Fischer a genius was his ability to blend an American freshness and pragmatism with Russian ideas about strategy. – Bruce Pandolfini

    His opening repertoire was fairly narrow but virtually impeccable. He did not force play into particular channels but played with great objectivity into whatever offered the best winning chances, be it a tactical or positional middlegame or an ending. He rarely lost the initiative, but could defend well when it was necessary. He could be brilliant but did not seek brilliancy for its own sake; he preferred the point on the crosstable. Psychologically he was strong, usually coming back with powerful wins to avenge past defeats. – Tim Harding

    I consider Fischer to be one of the greatest opening experts ever. His adventures with the Poison Pawn Najdorf Sicilian are amazing, legendary in my mind. He challenged the world to out analyze him, they knew he would play that variation, many prepared special novelties against him, and still he consistently won with that risky line. Only Polugaevsky comes to mind in analyzing an opening to the level Fischer did, the Polugaevsky variation of the Najdorf Sicilian. – Keith Hayward

    Many chess players were surprised when after the game, Fischer quietly explained: "I had already analyzed this possibility" in a position which I thought was not possible to foresee from the opening. – Mikhail Tal

    Fischer proved to me how gifted (regarding openings) he was with his first match against Spassky. The guy played openings and defenses for the first time in his life almost perfectly against a world champion! As a human being, the guy's values are not in touch with the real world, but when it comes to pure chess knowledge, he has no equal! – Keith Hayward

    There is only one thing Fischer does in chess without pleasure: lose! – Boris Spassky

    There's never before been a chess player with such a thorough knowledge of the intricacies of the game and such an absolutely indomitable will to win. I think Bobby is the greatest player that ever lived. – Lisa Lane

    Bobby Fischer is the greatest chess player who has ever lived. – Ken Smith

    Fischer does not merely outplay opponents; he leaves them bodily and mentally glutted. Fisher himself speaks of the exultant instant in which he feels the 'ego of the other player crumbling.' – George Steiner

    Fischer is the profoundest student of chess who ever lived. He reads incessantly, forgets nothing, turns knowledge into action with monstrous precision and ferocity. – Brad Darrach

    After World War II, the chess scene was dominated by the Soviet Union, or rather by the Russians. The only exception, the only person who managed to put an end to Russian dominance was Fischer, which testifies to his genius. – Zoltan Ribli

    Fischer is the strongest player in the world. In fact, the strongest player who ever lived. – Larry Evans

    Our position - using here the royal “we” - is that the Fischer of 1971 and 1972 was the strongest player in chess history, whereas the Kasparov of 1985 - 2001 is the Muhammed Ali of Chess. Which is to say, the greatest. – Larry Parr

    Bobby Fischer is the greatest chess genius of all time! – Alexander Kotov

    Fischer is the greatest genius to descend from the chess heavens. – Mikhail Tal

    Geniuses like Beethoven, Leonardo da Vinci, Shakespeare and Fischer come out of the head of Zeus, seem to be genetically programmed, know before instructed. – John Collins

    Fischer is like Zeus - he is the God of the gods. - Nigel Short

    Bobby is the finest chess player this country ever produced. His memory for the moves, his brilliance in dreaming up combinations, and his fierce determination to win are uncanny. Not only will I predict his triumph over Botvinnik, but I'll go further and say that he'll probably be the greatest chess player that ever lived. – John Collins

    Suddenly it was obvious to me in my analysis I had missed what Fischer had found with the greatest of ease at the board. – Mikhail Botvinnik

    Not that the two whitewash matches were against wimps (Taimanov and Larsen, both powerhouses) or as easy as the scores suggest, but heck, after you lose three or four in a row against a player like Fischer you may as well call in sick with the old "the dog ate my preparation" and get out of town. – Mig Greengard

    It was clean, crystalline, pure, like Capablanca in a way. This is what no one knew in advance. How would he play? Not even Bobby knew. – Lothar Schmid (on Fischer's play in the first game of the '92 rematch with Spassky)

    What can I say about Fischer? I feel this man had to be the World Champion and nothing would stop him. It was a foregone conclusion. His career took a rather roundabout course but everything was already mapped out! I think that five years before he became World Champion, everyone was aware that the inevitable would happen. He was a real driving force! And Spassky got run over by that 'machine'. I think that any other player would have lost to Fischer too. They were not much weaker, it was the will of fate - Fischer would have broken through any cordon. - Vladimir Kramnik

    At a certain moment he had everything: energy, drive, preparation, strong play, etc. as if all the rays were gathered together at one point! He had no weak spots at all - how can you handle such a person?! This happens to every outstanding player when everything clicks. As I see it, Fischer reached his height during the Candidates cycle and his match against Spassky. - Vladimir Kramnik

  17. Tigran V. Petrosian - A Stupendous Tactician
    Shortly after Tigran Petrosian defeated Mikhail Botvinnik in the 1963 World Championship Match, Alberic O'Kelly de Galway published a book of the new champion's games. O'Kelly's selection of 30 games revealed Petrosian to be a unique, multi-faceted player and not merely the technical Grandmaster of Prophylaxis.

    After losing to Petrosian in the 1966 World Championship Match, Boris Spassky described Petrosian as "first and foremost a stupendous tactician".

    Here are the games from O'Kelly's book, complete with subtitles.

    29 games, 1946-1963
