Default Kasparov Interview about Book !

Karpov's contribution to chess was greater than Fischers ??? heehee

Of course he did, pillock; he contributed not necessarily as much to the
general welfare of players, but certainly to the game, simply because he
defended his title strenuously through the '70s and '80s, something that
Fischer sadly would (or could) not.

Kasparov Interview about the new book.

He states that Karpov has 75+ games analyzed and Fischer has 45 games
analyzed because Karpov's contribution to chess was greater.

Karpov's contribution to chess was greater than Fischers ??? heehee

More like Kasparov played Karpov in allot of games and he is going to
analyze all of his games Kasp vs Karp in the book ! heehee

Kaspy also forgot to mention the copy & paste command that was used to write
the book

Cordially,

Why's that so funny? Contribution to CHESS- Kasparov's focusing on the game
itself, not other things.

Fischer's entire career spanned from 1955 to 1972, comprising 952 total games.
His computer games from 1977 and match in 1992 were blips, nothing more.
Fischer only played 1 world championship match.

Karpov, on the other hand, didn't get a start to his career until 1961, but it
has continued for over four decades into the present day. He's played a
whopping 3,005 games (based on Mega2003), and has participated in an amazing
amount of World Championship matches, 7 in total.

Fischer is not a significant multiple more important that Karpov, although the
usual caveat is that this is only because of his turning his back on chess. In
all probability, Karpov wouldn't have existed much in our consciousness had
Fischer stuck around, he'd probably have ended up losing it to Kasparov, but
such things are hard to figure out.
