Beast of Baku: Garry Kasparov

Garry Kasparov is from Baku Azerbaijan and lives at the United States, Grandmaster, and former World Chess Champion. He was born on 13 April 1963 and his peak rating is 2851; achieved in 1999. One of his students, none other than GM Magnus Carlsen, managed to break his record after many years, in 2013.

It is also impressive that Garry was ranked world No. 1, from 1984 until his retirement in 2005! He has many records in his career; one is the youngest undisputed World Chess Champion in 1985 at age 22, defeating GM Anatoly Karpov.

He started to disagree heavily with FIDE so in 1993 he set up a rival organization, the Professional Chess Association (PCA). He played and won in a match against GM Nigel Short, and GM Viswanathan Anand.

He continued winning the matches but in 1997 he became the first World Champion to lose a match to a computer. Also, the supercomputer Deep Blue was from IBM, a competitive company to Intel, which sponsored the PCA... Thus, he didn't manage to find sponsors for the next match. In 2000 he played against GM Vladimir Kramnik and he lost the match.
