Kasparov won the 2004 Russian Championship after a two-year drought. What was going through his mind as he got ready to face Morozevich, Grischuk, Svidler, and other young stars? Kasparov talks about having no choice but to win.
The fourth book of Kasparov's Great Predecessors series focuses on Bobby Fischer and we talked extensively about this work. The always-animated Kasparov discusses Fischer's chances against Anatoly Karpov in the 1975 world championship match that never was. How would Fischer have fared against the new generation after three years away from the board?
