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.

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.
