Chessmaster Garry Kasparov Is Determined to Checkmate Vladimir Putin - The Daily Beast
Lol, funny article.
Kasparov is a miserable egomaniacal idiot. When he was world champion, in order to hold on to his title, he split with Fide and hand picked his challengers. In the entire decade of the 90's he took part in 2 WCH matches as opposed to at least one every two years that we see now.
He does not have jack shit interms of political clout. All he does is publicity stunts to somehow remain in the news. He is just a media whore.
Challenge Putin indeed!. Putin will crush him like a little cockroach.
He didn't beat Bobby Fischer.

Fisher and Kasparov were two different era's and to an extent similar characters. But Fisher at least had some ethics. On a sidenote Anand considers Fisher his idol and they used to meet frequently prior to Fishers death.
