1992 “Revenge Match of the 20th Century” Bobby Fisher Defeats Boris Spassky to Win in an Unofficial Match in Belgrade



The 1992 match between former World Chess Champions Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky was billed as a World Chess Championship, but was unofficial. It was a rematch of the 1972 World Championship match. The match started in Sveti Stefan near Budva, an island off the coast of Montenegro. The match rules required a player to win ten games (draws not counting), with no adjournments. After a player had won five games, the match would take a 10-day recess and continue in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. In the match itself, Fischer won decisively with a score of 10-5. Learn More
