Who was Garry Kasparov?

Garry Kasparov is a Russian politician and chess living legend that marked every chess player that is getting into chess. Many people, related or not to chess, will recognize the name of the great master, for his chess or political career.

This man is really a man of surprises and an authentic revolutionary, he is involved in many great changes in the world relating to his country. There is a lot of controversy around this man, and his chess career is something to admire.

Undoubtedly, Garry Kasparov is one of the greatest chess players in history, and he changed chess forever. There is no chess adept who doesn’t know the name of this man, whose life is a great story to tell.

He was studying chess seriously since he was 7 years old when he entered Mikhail Botvinnik’s chess school. Here he met his first master, the renowned chess coach Vladimir Makonogov.

The strength of this chess grandmaster was great, and he was definitely a step forward over every chess player after of his age. He started to play chess when he was 11 years old, his father taught him the basics of the game.

A growing champion

Later on, he developed a growing interest in the game, and everything started because his father showed him a chess tactical problem.

Then, his ascendance in chess was simply amazing, constant and unstoppable, winning, winning, and winning more tournaments.

He won the juvenile world chess tournament celebrated in Dortmund, Germany in 1980. Also, he was part of the soviet chess Olympiad team as a supplant, which gave him a norm for the GM title.

The best tournament for Kasparov following his own opinion was the Sokolski Memorial, a tournament that he won. Winning this tournament gave him the GM title, also, after winning this tournament Kasparov was motivated, and felt he had chances for the world championship.

Garry Kasparov also had some “luck” in his career, the Russian Federation committed a lot of mistakes in that time. He participated in a grandmaster’s tournament when he was not a master yet.

Incredibly, he won this powerful tournament winning first place in solitary, how convenient! After this tournament, he emerged with an ELO rating of 2595 which was enough to consider him an elite player being the 3rd of the world.

Kasparov has uncountable ups and downs in his career, but one thing is for sure, he had a natural talent never seen before.

In 1992 he was able to win the Interzonal Moscow tournament in the first place, which classified him for the candidates’ tournament.

Here is where the story gets a little crazy and unexpected, everyone was impressed by Kasparov’s brilliancy by the time. In his matches in the candidates’ tournament, he defeated Alexander Beliavsky in the first round.

Then, he was to play against Viktor Korchnoi, but he had deserted from the Soviet Union by that time. We need to understand at that moment, Russia was not the most democratic of all countries.

There was difficult to arrange the match for the candidates’, Kasparov tried to arrange the match but he could not. After some time, the match was finally played by both players, resulting in a win for Kasparov.

He had just one more rival to defeat, he was against the ex-world champion Vasily Smyslov, the master of the endgame. However, after a hard match, he won the encounter, classifying for the match with the world champion Anatoly Karpov.

In 1984, the match for the maximum title started, it was the promise of Garry Kasparov versus Anatoly Karpov. The first player who achieved six wins would be the new champion.

This is how the greatest rivalry in the history of the entire sport started, and finally, the passion among the board took over the world. It was a fierce battle between Karpov and Kasparov, the level of play here shown was unique.

The world champion Anatoly Karpov, after 9 games he had the advantage against Kasparov 4-0. But then Kasparov got 17 draws in a row, and he lost a game, 5-0 if Kasparov lost a single game more, it’s over! But this was not the end…

15 games that ended up in a draw once again, and all of the sudden, Kasparov won his first game against the world champion. They had already played 46 games; it was the longest match in chess history.

The board was on fire, and both players had a fierce battle over the board, but something happened…

The president of the FIDE canceled the match, both players expressed their unhappiness with the decision. Garry Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov wanted to continue playing but Florencio Campomanes, FIDE president, decided it was enough, and another match would be played later.

The second Match against Karpov

The reason for his decision was unknown, the most logical answer was that he was worried about both players’ mental health. Kasparov, a young man who was in good shape didn’t have any trouble, but Karpov, 12 years older than Kasparov, had been hospitalized several times during the match.

Nevertheless, Garry Kasparov was extremely angry with Campomanes, this was the point where the relationship between Kasparov and FIDE really deteriorated.

It was the first match for the world championship that was never ended with no result.

Another match between Kasparov and Karpov was organized to decide the world champion in Moscow in 1985. But it was a different modality, it was the best out of 24 games, the player who achieved 12,5 points would be the winner. In case of a tie, Karpov would retain his title.

It was again two legends fighting over the board, that was not just chess, it was war. After a pretty disputed match, Kasparov became the new world champion in 1985, winning the match 13-11.

Garry Kasparov, then became the youngest world champion of the world at the age of 22 years, 6 months, and 27 days.

“I have found the mental training and discipline involved in the game of chess to be very applicable to the real estate investing process. The methodical thought process, deep thinking and end game orientation required in chess are parallel to the analysis, negotiation and contract work involved with real estate investing. I believe chess is excellent mental conditioning for the real estate game or any business endeavour.”

“I started playing chess when I was about 4 or 5 years old. It is very good for children to learn to play chess, because it helps them to develop their mental abilities. It also helps to consolidate a person’s character, because as it happens both in life and in a chess game we have to make decisions constantly. In chess there is no luck and no excuses: everything is in your hands.”

Vladimir Kramnik, World Chess Champion

CHESS IS LIFE IN MINIATURE✨

We talked so many times about how chess makes your everyday life easier. It helps you think faster, reassess, and adapt your strategy to what is actually happening.

You cannot win the game if you're completely fixated on the one strategy that you chose to play, because your opponent, regardless of how amazing and good your strategy is, is paying attention to both your moves and their own moves.

In both life and chess, we need to accept what's happening and act accordingly.

Otherwise, by the time you actually look around you, you'll see you are completely lost and with a plan that's no longer viable.

Learn how to play chess with us and notice the improvement in your everyday life.
