At the beginning of his book, "How life imitates
chess," Garry Kasparov gives a fascinating account
of his dramatic world title match with champion
He was 21 years old and had risen to the top of
the chess world with such speed that he could not
imagine this final hurdle could block his way.
"Up to that point in my career," Kasparov wrote,
"everything had become easily for me, winning
had become the natural state of things." The young
challenger, however, soon found himself on the
brink of defeat.
An incredible 17 games followed without a decisive
match dragged on
every record for
the duration of a
dreds of hours of
play and prepara-
tion, he had to
focus on his deci-
fix whatever was going wrong.
However, when he lost the 27th game to go down
five-nil it seemed he wasn t learning fast enough
to save the match. One more loss and it would be
three long years before he could hope for another
shot at the title.
"As the match entered its third month, I stayed
in my defensive crouch," Kasparov related. "I wasn t
winning but the change in style had made things
much tougher for Karpov. I felt I was getting closer
to solving the puzzle while, at the same time, my
opponent was becoming more frustrated and tired.
"At last the dam broke. After surviving game 31,
in which Karpov failed to land a decisive blow, I
won game 32 and went on the offensive. Meanwhile
the world began to wonder if the match would ever
end. No championship match had ever gone beyond
three months, and here we were entering the fifth.
Karpov looked exhausted and I started to press
"After coming close to winning game 46, I won
game 47 in crushing style. Could there be a miracle?
Exactly at that moment the organisers decided the
players needed a break, and the next game was
postponed for several days. Despite this unprece-
dented decision, I also won the next game. Suddenly
it was 3-5 and the momentum was on my side.
"Then, in a bizarre twist on February 15, 1985 in
Moscow, the International Chess Federation, FIDE,
responding to pressure from the Soviet sport author-
ities, called a press conference to declare that the
match was cancelled.
After five months, 48 games, and thousands of
play and study, the match was over without a win-
"We would have to return six months later to
do battle again, and next time there would be a
limit of 24 games. Karpov was removed from imme-
diate danger and could be content that he would
hold on to his title a while longer."
Kasparov said he learned "a huge amount" from
this long and gruelling "tutorial." In fact, he added,
the world champion had been his personal trainer
for five relentless months.
"Not only had I learned the way he played, I was
now deeply in touch with my own thought process-
es," the challenger noted.
"I was increasingly able to identify my mistakes
and analyse why I made them. From that process
I learned how best to avoid making them again, to
improve the decision-making process itself. This
was my first experience in questioning myself
instead of relying only on my instincts."
Kasparov acknowledged that the champion knew
he would consistently give up material
for attacking chances and used this
habit against him in the first match.
Only when he began to rein in that
instinct did he begin to put up effec-
When the second match got under
way in Moscow, Kasparov did not have
to wait months for his first win; he
won the very first game. The match
was still a tough fight---he trailed for
most of the early stages---but this time
he wasn t the same innocent 21-year
"I had patched the holes Karpov
had so successfully exploited at the
start of the first match. Now a savvy
veteran at 22, I became world cham-
pion and went on to hold the title for
"When I retired in 2000, I was still
the highest-rated player in the world,
but for a chess player 41 years old.
Still, I remained at the summit for
nearly two decades, while many of
my opponents were in their teens."
