About this title


The Games of Robert J. Fischer contains every serious traceable game of chess by Bobby Fischer from 1955 until his death in 2008. An appendix has been added to the original volume to include, in algebraic notation with diagrams, all 20 games actually played in the epic battle of Bobby Fischer vs. Boris Spassky in 1972 in Reykjavik, Iceland and all 30 games in their return match in Montenegro and Yugoslavia in 1992. Includes numerous game annotations, a complete record of Fischer's tournaments and matches, and special articles by Grandmasters Keres and Bisguier, former British Champions Golombek and Barden and openings expert Blackstock.

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.
