April 13, 1963 Garry Kasparov RussiaPolitical Figure

Garry Kasparov is a Russian former World Chess Champion, regarded by many as the greatest chess player of all time. He is also a writer and political activist.

Kasparov became the youngest ever undisputed World Chess Champion in 1985. He held the official FIDE world title until 1993, when a dispute with FIDE 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. He is also widely known for being the first world chess champion to lose a match to a computer, when he lost to Deep Blue in 1997.

Kasparov's ratings achievements include being rated world #1 according to Elo rating almost continuously from 1986 until his retirement in 2005 and holding the all-time highest rating of 2851. He also holds records for consecutive tournament victories and Chess Oscars.

Born April 13, 1963, his primary personality traits are represented by the Chinese Zodiac elemental animal sign, the Water Rabbit. The Water Rabbit shows great sensitivity and constantly promotes harmony. Unfortunately, he is too often overly sensitive and easily hurt. He is kind and generous--- almost to a fault, and it is easy to take advantage of his generosity. He tends to be friendly and easygoing, a joy to be around. It wouldn't be surprising if he was drawn to artistic pursuits and either participate actively or are somewhat of a connoisseur.
