33 ( +1 | -1 ) I just readon chessgames.com that Fischer mentioned playing against Topalov in Fischerrandom. I think he also said something about playing Kasparov. He also asserted that he was still the world champion of chess.
I would love to see Fischer come back. It's not too late. That damned mad genius could surprise us all.
65 ( +1 | -1 ) absurd declarationsFischer is not the world champion. He refused to defend his title.
Currently there are two champions, and for a change, both deserve our respect for the way the earned it. Kramnik defended his successfully, although his results have been abyssmal the past few years outside of his match with Leko.
If Kramnik stymies negotiations with FIDE and Topalov, he will be stripped of his title the way Fischer was. As corrupt as FIDE is, it must have some authority. Of course, FIDE would need to recognize something before they could take it away, and that recognition will undermine some of the organization's absurd claims in recent years.
