 Mark Taimanov(Hardcover)

I was a Victim of Bobby Fischer by Mark Taimanov In 1971 Robert James Fischer defeated Mark

Taimanov by the sensational score of 6–0 in Vancouver, but the match games were far more

competitive and tension-filled than the final score would suggest.



Twenty years later Taimanov put pen to paper, reflecting on the experience. Exactly 50 years after the

match, this is the first English translation of Taimanov’s original Russian text.


Taimanov, one of the elite Soviet grandmasters of his time, provides a richly detailed, honest and

emotional account of the drama on and off the board. Despite the catastrophic match score, his love

for the game of chess is evident throughout. Taimanov also discusses his early acquaintance with

Fischer from 1960, including detailed annotations of both of their pre-1971 games, as well as the

personal consequences of the match result.

 Mark Taimanov


With fascinating additional archive material and analytical contributions from some of the brightest

young stars of the American chess scene today, I was a Victim of Bobby Fischer is the ultimate

insight into one of the most famous matches in chess history.

Mark Taimanov was one of the elite Soviet grandmasters throughout the 1950s to the 1970s.


Mark Taimanov achieved the title of grandmaster in 1952. In 1953 he played in the candidate

tournament held in  Zurich , where he finished eighth. During the years 1946 to 1956 he remained

among the ten best players in the world.

He went on to compete in 23 Soviet Union championships. He wrote among others Taimanov’s

selected games (his best games) and The Soviet Chess Championships.


Chess and music were the two professions that occupied the life of Mark Taimanov (Kharkov 1926-

Saint Petersburg 2016). In both he reached the level of the best, that of the chosen ones.
