Photograph hand signed by the great Garry Kasparov, the best chess player in the world, with a Beckett certificate of authenticity.

Garry Kimovich Kasparov (Га́рри Ки́мович Каспа́ров /ˈgarʲɪ ˈkʲiməvʲɪtɕ kɐˈsparəf/) (Baku, Soviet Union, now Azerbaijan, 13th April 1963) is a Russian chess grandmaster, politician and writer. He obtained Croatian citizenship in 2014. He was world chess champion from 1985 to 2000.

Kasparov became the youngest ever World Chess Champion in 1985. He held the official FIDE world title until 1993, when a dispute with the Federation led him to set up a rival organization, the Professional Chess Association. He continued to hold the ‘Classical’ World Chess Championship until his defeat by Vladimir Kramnik in 2000.

Kasparov was ranked world no. 1 by FIDE almost continuously from 1986 until his retirement in 2005. In July 1999 he achieved a rating of 2851, which was the highest recorded until being surpassed by Magnus Carlsen in April 2014, when Carlsen reached 2882 Elo points. He has also won the Chess Oscar eleven times. He is also known for his encounters with computers and chess programs, especially after being defeated by Deep Blue in 1997. This was the first time that a world champion was defeated by a computer in a match under standard time controls.

Kasparov announced on the 10th March 2005 that he would retire from professional chess to devote his time to politics and writing on chess. He formed the United Civil Front movement, and joined as a member of The Other Russia, a coalition opposing the administration of Vladimir Putin.

On the 28th September 2007, Kasparov entered the Russian Presidential race, receiving 379 of 498 votes at a congress held in Moscow by The Other Russia. Finally his party did not take part in the election of March 2008 due to, according to Kasparov himself, inability to find a meeting hall to assemble the party, as required by the Russian election law. Failure to find a sufficiently large rental space to assemble the number of supporters that is legally required to endorse such a candidacy led him to withdraw. Kasparov blamed ‘official obstruction’ for the lack of available space. Although he is widely regarded in the West as a symbol of opposition to Putin, he was barred from the presidential ballot. According to reports, the political climate in Russia makes it difficult for opposition candidates to organize.

He is widely regarded in the West as a symbol of opposition to Putin. However, it’s considered that the support to Kasparov in Russia is low.

Kasparov has been presented with the UN Watch award for his peaceful fight for the respect of fundamental freedoms in Russia. He is currently chairman for the Human Rights Foundation and chairs its International Council.
