Who is Fischer?

Robert James Fischer (March 9, 1943 – January 17, 2008) was an American chess grandmaster and the eleventh World Chess Champion. Many consider him to be the greatest chess player of all time.[2][3]

Fischer showed great skill in chess from an early age; at 13, he won a brilliancy known as “The Game of the Century”. At age 14, he became the US Chess Champion, and at 15, he became both the youngest grandmaster (GM) up to that time and the youngest candidate for the World Championship. At age 20, Fischer won the 1963/64 US Championship with 11 wins in 11 games, the only perfect score in the history of the tournament. His book My 60 Memorable Games, published in 1969, is regarded as essential reading.
Fischer won the World Chess Championship in 1972, defeating Boris Spassky of the USSR, in a match held in Reykjavík, Iceland. Publicized as a Cold War confrontation between the US and USSR, it attracted more worldwide interest than any chess championship before or since. After forfeiting his title as World Champion, Fischer became reclusive and sometimes erratic, disappearing from both competitive chess and the public eye. In 1992, he reemerged to win an unofficial rematch against Spassky. It was held in Yugoslavia, which was under a United Nations embargo at the time. His participation led to a conflict with the US government, which warned Fischer that his participation in the match would violate an executive order imposing US sanctions on Yugoslavia. The US government ultimately issued a warrant for his arrest. After that, Fischer lived his life as an émigré. In 2004, he was arrested in Japan and held for several months for using a passport that had been revoked by the US government. Eventually, he was granted an Icelandic passport and citizenship by a special act of the Icelandic Althing, allowing him to live in Iceland until his death in 2008.

Fischer made numerous lasting contributions to chess. In the 1990s, he patented a modified chess timing system that added a time increment after each move, now a standard practice in top tournament and match play. He also invented Fischerandom, a new variant of chess known today as Chess960.

Who is Korchnoi ?

Viktor Lvovich Korchnoi[3] (Russian: Ви́ктор Льво́вич Корчно́й, IPA: [vʲiktər lʲvovʲɪtɕ kɐrtɕˈnoj]; 23 March 1931 – 6 June 2016) was a Soviet (until 1976) and Swiss (from 1994) chess grandmaster and writer. He is considered one of the strongest players never to have become World Chess Champion.[4]

Born in Leningrad, Soviet Union, Korchnoi defected to the Netherlands in 1976, and resided in Switzerland from 1978, becoming a Swiss citizen. Korchnoi played four matches, three of which were official, against GM Anatoly Karpov. In 1974, he lost the Candidates final to Karpov, who was declared World Champion in 1975 when GM Bobby Fischer refused to defend his title. Korchnoi then won two consecutive Candidates cycles to qualify for World Championship matches with Karpov in 1978 and 1981, but lost both. The two players also played a drawn training match of six games in 1971.

Korchnoi was a candidate for the World Championship on ten occasions (1962, 1968, 1971, 1974, 1977, 1980, 1983, 1985, 1988 and 1991).

  1. Love Fischers KID, perfectly played. Makes it look so easy.

    Great commentary on this one in particular KC.

  2. Thanks for the video. It sure is hard sitting through that Obama-idiot ad. at the beginning, though.

  3. Lol I did not guess Nh8. Congrats to anyone who guessed that correctly

  4. A good example of how releasing a tension can be helpful for you opponent.

  5. Check out on youtube "chess champ bobby fischer at CBS news 60 minutes 09-april-1973.flv" A cbs reporter hangs around bobby for a few days. You get to see fischer doing physical-training in his hotel room, a great interview just before his world champion clash with spassky, see him with the black pieces crush a so called " 12 year-old wonder boy" in a blitz game. (Can't believe the video has only 2000 hits.) ENJOY!

  6. What a game! How do you learn to pay like that?

  7. Nice win, but I've never liked these five minute GM games…give 'em enough time to think!

  8. 5:54 Qa4 then …Bd7 (am I missing something?)

  9. Two best a blitz players Genrikh Chepukaitis and Leonid Stein was not in this a blitz in 1970.Chepukaitis beat Korchnoi in blitz two times in 1965 and 1967.A finnish master Kaarle Ojanen elo rating 2563 told me that Leonid Stein beat him in blitz 9wins one loss.90 percent score against 2563 gives LeonidStein blitz rating 2916 elo rating.Chepukaitis beat Tal too in blitz.Tal was the second in 1970.Chepukaitis!!!

  10. Fischer a score 86,3 percent in this blitz in 1970 gives Fischer 2991 elo rating in blitz. Mikhail Tal 2819 in this blitz in 1970.Korchnoi 2807 blitz rating.Leonid Stein had a score 2919 in the blitz.Genrikh Chepukaitis beat both Mikhai Tal and Korchnoi.Korchnoi lost to Chepukaitis in blitz in 1965 and in 1967

  11. Hello again.  It is so surprizing how complicated the KID is!!! It has become a part of my repoitoire simply because of the transpositional complications that take place & you are forced to learn all the stratigical positions that could & do arise from it.  BUT I am not giving up on it.  The Modern, The Sicilian, The Pirc, and the KID can all come about based on how white plays against you.  That is why you must know them all OR at least the plans and piece placement plans.  So, Thank You once again for another GREAT Educational Video and another Liked.  Sincerely,    JAMES. 

  12. absolutely stunning and amazing ~ I <3 ya presentation

  13. fischer in 1970 was unbeatable by anyone anytime imho

  14. I was curious what move Stockfish would play at 10:45, so I gave it to the engine. At level 28, Nh8 was its third choice. The #2 move was Nh4, evidently not caring that BxN is possible. As for the #1 choice, it's a real head-scratcher – would you believe Bf8 is the move?
