hey everyone this is kevin from the chess website calm today we're going to be going over another video from Bobby Fischer for the upcoming graphic novel Bobby Fischer the knight who killed the Kings do you guys have any questions I've been playing some clips before the videos it's kind of give you a teaser but if you have any questions about the graphic novel it's going to be pretty awesome I'll be answering a lot of questions you guys have about the graphic novel in the next video so definitely feel free to add a comment or you can always email me and I will answer your questions in there as well today's video is going to be from the first ever u.s. championship that Bobby Fischer played in championship was 1957 1958 now Bobby Fischer played in eight different US Championships and he actually won all eight of them so he's eight Freight that's not a bad a statistic if you're looking for a winning streak there so this was the first championship they Bobby Fischer ever won so 57 58 and he was 14 years of age now when he won Bobby Fischer became the youngest US Champion ever so I don't know if you are 14 or older but if you can just imagine being 14 and being the best chess player in the United States that is a huge deal and Bobby Fischer at the time was probably rated about 2,400 to about 2,500 after the tournament he became an international master so kind of give you an idea of you know where he was as far as his you know chess career as far as his chest knowledge his opponent in the game today just to kind of give you a you know brief background his opponent was ed Mar – now at this time ed Mar was about 20 years old when they played in the eight years that Bobby Fischer played in the US Championships there were only three people that beat him which is pretty amazing that for eight years that he played only three people actually beat him in a game now Bobby Fischer would win the entire tournament but ed Marr Minnis although he did not beat Bobby Fischer in this particular tournament was one of those three individuals so a very very strong us player and so this is one of my favorite games from Bobby Fischer's first-ever US championship now in this game we do have Bobby Fischer playing the white pieces and we have ed Martinez playing the black pieces so as Bobby Fischer normally did he started out with pawn to e4 Bobby Fischer liked to change things up but he did always like to start with pawn to e4 in black ed Martinez plays pawn to d6 now this is the perk defense so kind of just some background as far as what both sides are going to be going after black pretty much is conceding the center of the board White's going to be able to play pawn to d4 which is exactly what Bobby Fischer does and this perk defense is a hyper modern offense meaning the black early on is not going to push forward very hard with his pawns instead he's going to try to from the outside try to control the center of the board with his minor pieces so feeing carrying his Bishop to g7 he could always feel kid it was Bishop to b7 really try to get his Knights involved into the game try to control the center of the board and only once he has an attack that he thinks he can undermine White's position in the center then and only then will he try to counter-attack and then take over the center of the board obviously the similar board is very very important in chess so at some time black definitely wants to have Center control of the board so early on Bobby Fischer does have the advantage with pawn to d4 and blacks going to continue with the mainline men displays Knight to f6 again hyper-modern defense trying to control the center and attack with his minor pieces Bobby Fischer white continues with Knight to c3 and men this black pieces plays pawn to g6 now what I really enjoy about studying games that Bobby Fischer played especially early on you know this he's only 14 is he really starts to innovate a lot of the openings that we see today that you know for us if we study it's book lines and even computer incidence if you look at them they're book lines but when Bobby Fischer played him a lot of time he was theorizing what they should play you know how they should play some of the best moves in the variations his next move Bishop to g5 it definitely gets out his dark square Bishop which a lot of times is more difficult for white to get involved into the game but this move really didn't become popular until the 60s Robert Byrne actually introduced this a lot into the game as far as theory behind it but Bobby Fischer in his first ever u.s. championship plays you know a new move which I'm sure he had studied very very often probably had a lot of theory behind it himself it just wasn't widespread so very interesting that even early on in his career at the age of 14 he was already thinking about new ways of playing chess that other people really hadn't come to yet so from here blacks going to come to Bishop to g7 and White's going to play Queen to d2 again supporting this Bishop here on g5 also getting ready to castle on the Queen set typically any time you start to develop one of your minor pieces or your major pieces to one side that's typically where you're going to Castle so if Bobby Fischer instead decides to start out with his Knight to f3 and then get his LightSquared Bishop involvement to the game you would typically see White Castle on the Kings side but in this case since Bobby Fischer decided to get his knighted ball to c3 and then his dark square Bishop and his Minor excuse me his major piece here to d2 more than likely Bobby Fischer in this case why it's going to be castling on the Queen side now from here men this does have a few options he could always try to bring his knight to c6 simple development move again hyper-modern trying to control the center of the board with his minor pieces he could even bring his Knight to d7 as far as opening book theory this is this is okay nowadays that a lot of people have gone over this Knight to d7 does play fairly well black could also castle on the Kings side again after he Fein kiddoes his Bishop to g7 this is a very safe defense for black and he does also have the option of kicking this bishop with pawn to h6 now this does come with a a tidbit of information anytime you start to push up pawns once you fee and keto to your Bishop your your King side does become a lot weaker so in this case the King side from black is much weaker so he's going to look to castle on the Queen side if he does have that option and he really wants to keep the Queen side much safer now since the King side you know it's kind of pushing forward this is not bad by any means but it does weaken the King set so something to keep along we're going to kind of be going over the strengths and weaknesses of both the king side in the Queen side but this is what men this plays he plays pawn to h6 and it kicks back the bishop here to f4 Bobby Fischer again bringing his Bishop back to f4 so we can put a lot of pressure on the center of the board still really trying to control the turn of the board but obviously he does need to retreat his Bishop back now blacks going to play pawn to c6 again from here black does need to be careful now pawn to c6 does give him some options you know later on he can bring his Knight to d7 he does open up the window for his Queen to come to a5 if he wants to make it he's still looking to castle on the Queen side he's also blocking this b5 square very important square if white ever wanted to develop his minor pieces his Bishop let's say to b5 get that involved into the game it is also you know defending the knight coming here to b5 it's definitely you know blocking this square here on b5 now Bobby Fischer castles on the Queen side is we had talked about before anytime you start to develop you do want to get your King to safety as soon as possible and black from here Menace plays Queen to a5 I'm starting to attack on the Queen side again any time your opponent kind of shows their hand to you and tells you what side they're going to have their King on the rest of the game in some way you want to start to attack that one way or another it could be early on into the game or you could build a tack later on into the game from here Bobby Fischer is going to play King to be one in you'll see this a lot obviously Bobby Fischer does have the night here on c3 defending this pawn on a1 but you never want to have your minor pieces tied down to a particular pawn our particular square your minor pieces really need to be controlling the center the board but later on you actually want them to be attacking and have your major pieces actually supporting those as well so you really don't want to have this night tied down to this pawn on a two so the King just is going to come over to be one and protect this pawn here on a two now from here blacks going to play pawn to g5 and I really like this because you know black does have the opportunity to castle on the Queen side later on and he's really starting to make a push on on the King side here there's not really a lot of options for the dark square bishop here for white so really putting a lot of pressure on white here to do something productive now Bobby Fischer decides to retreat his Bishop back to g3 and from here Menace plays Knight to h5 looking to exchange off his knight for this dark square bishop here on g3 there's not really a lot of squares the Bobby Fischer can now move his Bishop so typically you you will see a trade-off here for the night and the dark square Bishop most times at high level play early on into the games is you can open up the board very easily a lot more easily than you can close the game Bishop's tend to fare better a lot of people like a bishop pair especially when they can open it up so anytime a lot of it if a you know high-level chess player can trade off one of their nights for a bishop you typically will see that early on so if you're kind of curious why this Knights coming to h5 on the rim you know typically a knight on the rim is dim but in this particular case he's just going you know to trade off the night here on g3 white plays Bishop to c4 you know a lot of players get bogged down they say you know what I'm going to lose this Bishop here on g3 I'm going to trade it off you know what's really the best way to recapture and Bobby Fischer just he realized he's going to have to trade that off so he instead really starts to focus on what his you know attacks going to be and really start to develop his pieces one of the big things you always want to do in chess game is you want to develop your minor pieces and you want to develop them towards the center of the word this see Foursquare is very important square it's attacking the f7 square from black which is a huge weakness early on to the game it's the only square from black that's only defended by the King so no or the other none of the other pieces can defend the pawn early on into the game so huge weakness for black early on this f7 Square and that's exactly where Bobby Fischer places his Bishop here on c4 attacking this pawn here on f7 now from here black plays an interesting move that actually don't agree with and he plays pawn to b5 now the problem that I have with this is and I'll kind of go over some different variations right here's the King side from black is already weak and that's okay if the Queen side is strong and you can actually make a very strong push from the Kings side the problem right here is Bobby Fischer has a very very strong defense on the Queen side for his King and so if you look at black where is his King really going to go the Kings side is the king side is weak and now he's kind of opened up his Queen side here you know I think it would have been a much better play if instead of bringing his you know pawn down to b5 if he tried something you know Knight to d7 looking to get that involved into the middle of the board you know if he wanted to later on he could play pawn to e5 really start to push forward again trying to counter play in the center of the board try to take back the center of the board a very nice square from black right here on d7 but instead you know he kind of over extends he plays pawn to b5 you know seems logical trying to you know kick off this Bishop here on before but really does overextend himself now Bobby Fischer actually has two options here if you study any amount of Bobby Fischer's play he is he's so prone to just bring his Bishop back to b3 still lying down on this f7 square you know trying to eye down on this long diagonal Bobby Fischer actually made a mistake here though he did have the opportunity to actually just capture here on B five now as you can see the Queen there's a discovered attack on the Queen here on a5 so the Queen can't come and capture on b5 obviously you know white would recapture with his Bishop and he can also not take with his pawn here on b5 because again his queen is hanging here on a5 now if he does capture if he decides to capture right here and you say you know okay well you know men this could have now just taken the the night here on b5 this would actually be incorrect play as well because Bobby Fischer could have now brought his Bishop to d5 he would have taken this rook here on a8 there's no way to prevent this and white would be up a lot of material in this situation so you know Bobby Fischer dead he kind of let one go by here he definitely could have gone up in material but you know he kind of played it safer route he decided you know I'm gonna bring my bishop back to b3 I have a much better foundation as far as you know protection for my king you know he's probably played this situation many many times before and if he kind of looks at it he really doesn't have to be you know too aggressive black really is kind of divvying his own grave in the situation it's kind of overextending all his pawns without really doing too much damage to Bobby Fischer's entire structure so you know it shows us safe route and just played Bishop to b3 now after the bishop comes back to b3 med this now brings his Knight to d7 definitely good square he needs to get his knight involved into the action Bobby Fischer's almost complete as far as his development he does need to get this knight involved into the game and then he will correct connect his rooks a lot of time you as far as you know completing development you'll hear that you'll get all your minor pieces involved into the game get out your queen castle on one side and then connect your rooks you definitely want your Rex rooks connect into the game they have a lot more mobility and they definitely work well together so you know Knight to d7 blacks really looking to castle on the Queen side here again his King side is getting you know very very extended but you know again his queen side is as well bobby fisher' now plays pawn to f4 he starts to attack on the Kings side just to make sure trying to figure out exactly where memnos is going to castle he does still have the option to castle on the Kings side if he wants to but this f4 is a very aggressive move trying to push forward controlling the soon the board and really making sure that black kind of shows his hand as far as what he's going to do because if he gets rid of this pawn here on g5 it's going to be very difficult to castle on the Kings side because there's going to be a semi-open file on the G file from here black plays Knight takes on g3 I think it might have been a little better move to actually play pawn to b4 again if you're going to push on the Queen side you can't do it half-hearted you know pushing pawn to b4 making this Knight go somewhere obviously it can't come here to defy it would lose material you know would have to have a passive move like you know Knight to e2 so definitely putting a lot of pressure on white but instead you know he does the exchange that Bobby Fischer has kind of been waiting for for a few moves and he takes thereon g3 and white recaptures with his pawn on g3 opening up this semi open file for the rook here on h1 now black pushes forward with his pawn to g4 interesting move really trying to solidify these double pawns here on g4 and g3 again I think instead of you know pushing forward to g4 I think it probably would have been a good move for black to continue the pressure to play pawn to b4 he kind of has this you know possibility to play for a long time and he just really never takes advantage of it but instead he does play pawn to g4 and then Bobby Fischer pushes forward with pawn to e5 if you kind of look at the board Bobby Fischer really has both sides are equal in material but Bobby Fischer has a very very strong defense in front of his King and he can really start to attack the center of the board both the Queen side in the king side black are kind of weak so if you kind of have weaknesses on both side Bobby Fischer just decides that he's going to attack the middle and one of the sides is going to crumble one of the sides is going to have to kind of you know counter-attack with all their minor pieces and pawns and so he's going to be able to either attack on the Queen side or the King side so from here black decided to play pawn to d5 now I do think he did have some other options here instead of you know d6 again as we talked about he does have this pawn to b4 move if he wants to but instead you know he plays pawn to d5 Bobby Fischer plays pawn to f5 again really putting pressure on the center of the board and just pushing up his pawns his pawns are being supported you know by each other if he wants to he can always bring his rooks involved into the game to kind of support from the back so he's just kind of pushing forward putting a lot of pressure on black black starting to really lose a lot of space here there's not a lot of great squares for him to go his Queen over here on a five is kind of hanging out on its own it's really hard for black right now to strategize where he's going to go next menace in this situation decides to bring his knight to b6 really eyeing down on outpost on c4 if he wants to anytime there's an exchange here he can open up this B file really opening up a strong attack on the on the Queen side so that's kind of what Menace is looking for in this situation but instead you know white looks at this and sees kind of a lot of the material from black is shifted towards the Queen side Fischer feels pretty confident that his King is safe so he plays Queen to f4 really eyeing down on this pawn to g4 and Bobby Fischer you know really is just looking for pawn to come to h5 that's really all he wants right now the bishop here on g7 is defending this pawn on h6 so really Bobby Fischer's just bringing his Queen to f4 to kind of draw this pawn out kind of overextend it even more so that he can put a lot of Sharan it later on into the game but instead men displays an interesting move which which I'm going to consider a blunder you know the computer actually considers it a blunder as well simply because he just gives up material and he plays pawn to e6 definitely one of the significant pitfalls into the game because he's just giving up this pawn on g4 really not what you want to do against Bobby Fischer just give up material for absolutely no reason you know again he could have always pushed forward with before we've talked about this before but instead he plays d6 and Bobby Fischer is going to take this material right here you have to do keep in mind that Bobby Fischer is now attacking menaces Bishop here on g7 so the bishop will have to move and the bishops going to come back to f8 and then Bobby Fischer is going to take with his pawn on e6 and then black has to recapture with his Bishop now if you look at and you say you know why doesn't he capture with his pawn well if he does capture with his pawn then white can just bring his queen to g6 and then blacks in a whole lot of trouble black can no longer castle because he's going to have to move his King Black is down the material and you know Bobby Fischer can always bring his knight excuse me his rook over to the F file and just start to put a lot of pressure on the black King this rook here on a 8 would never get involved into the action so it'd definitely be really really hard for black 2 to finish so he does make the correct choice and he recaptures with his bishop here on e6 but as you can kind of tell this bishop is kind of tied down to this pawn here on f7 and also supporting this pawn here on d5 but he does capture with tempo the white queen from Bobby Fischer is gonna have to move back and he moves back to Queen to f3 now Mendes decides it's now time to castle so he castles on the Queen side you know again if you kind of look at it although he castled on the Queen side the Queen side is still very very vulnerable his all of his pawns are kind of extended very quickly so Bobby Fischer if you kind of look at kind what's I what both sides need to do in the situation now it's always good anytime you approach a chess situation is kind of look what's what material both sides kind of who's winning in material but also who's winning as far as development who's king is safe who's King isn't safe whose pieces are actually doing something whose are kind of tied back it's not always about you know how many people you have in the army it's about how many people in the army are actually fighting so if all your pieces are tied up that's not as important if you have you know four or five pieces actually fighting in the battle so if we can look at this Bobby Fischer has a good thing going form although his LightSquared Bishop here isn't doing too much his King is very very protected and as you can see you know black is his King side is not protected it's kind of discombobulated right now it's going to be very very easy for him to just you know protect his King on the Queen side and kind of make room and attack on the King side and eventually make his way over and attack the King here on c8 so from here white plays Knight to h3 again he does need to get his minor pieces involvement of the game he is yet to move his Knight to h3 and one thing the Bobby Fischer does better than anyone I've ever seen play chess is he really uses all this pieces together very very well anytime you know a lot of times people will play a piece or they'll move one of their minor pieces I mean it's what for one particular goal but Bobby Fischer typically is moving his pieces for multiple roles and goals typically he wants all of his pieces to be cohesive and work together so first thing he needs to do is get his knight involved into the game to h3 blacks going to now bring his rook to g8 anytime there is a semi-open file which this g file is you definitely want your rook on that file so definitely putting a lot of pressure on this file right here Bobby Fischer's always going to have to be looking at that with his queen or another one of his minor or major pieces or else he will be giving back that pawn that he got early on into the game so from here Bobby Fischer just brings his white queen back to f2 and menís decides to go and bring his Knight to c4 again as we talked about looking to exchange and then open up this B file for one of his rooks or some of his other pieces right now now Bobby Fischer we look at this white bishop right here on b3 is not doing anything and it's probably not going to be doing anything for a while so white in this situation decides to go ahead and trade off and black recaptures recapturing towards the center typically a good thing in chess getting ready to eye down on this B file right now the next room moves from white actually take the advantage that he does have and kind of brings it back to equality as far as both sides you know if we kind of look at it Bobby Fischer could easily play Knight to f4 start to really put a lot of pressure on black really start to push up on the King side for right now his King SOT excuse me his Queen side is safe defending the King here but again you know Bobby Fischer being 14 this is his first u.s. championship you know my guess is nerves probably kind of got to him he starts to play a little bit passive what black actually started to you know have this big attack start to come up on the Queen side so next couple moves Bobby Fischer starts to play a little bit passive it doesn't actually start to attack when he probably should have so Bobby Fischer in this particular place plays King to a 1 and black comes to d7 getting ready to bring his rook over to the b7 square and then really start to attack on the Queen side of white here Bobby Fischer now plays Knight to be one again a very very passive movie still could have brought his knight over to f4 if you wanted to pin start to put a lot of pressure on black here definitely a passive move and this kind of brought it back near equality white still has a a small advantage but black definitely has a strong attack coming up from here black decided to bring is rook over to b7 as we talked about any time there's a semi open file as this B file is you definitely want to attack that and you want to have your rook there especially with the opponent's queen on the able excuse me the king on the a1 square definitely targeting all your major and minor pieces on that it's definitely going to be a good thing now Bobby Fischer now plays pawn to c3 really allowing this Queen here on f2 to defend the pawn here on b2 and also defending this key square on b4 black does have this dark square bishop that can always come into the game if you wanted to and really just defending a lot of big dark squares this pawn from c3 actually very very good move from white now black does play an interesting move right here I think it kind of wastes some time he definitely does have some different options but he plays rook to b6 now the count look at this it doesn't really improve his position you know he was kind of attacking the same thing he was still you know has his rook on the semi-open b file really what he should have done is he needs to protect his king right now he needs to get his King on a dark square it's going to be very very hard to attack that dark square if he does bring his King over to let's say be eight at any given time if white were to take this bishop off of the e6 square then the Queen can always come to let's say f5 or you know g4 later on and attack these light squares but if he hasn't on b8 then his King is pretty much safe he could always if he wanted to bring it over to a8 it would be extremely safe but as you can see he's really starting a huge attack against the Queen side of white why it's kind of being passive right now kind of allowing black to do all this but instead he kind of wastes a move he plays rook to b6 doesn't really improve anything kind of the same situations we talked about you know he really wasn't thinking about his King at all any time you have a position whether it's yourself or it's the u.s. championship always think about what your objective is and what you need to do that and don't waste moves this pawn excuse me this rook from b7 to be six definitely could have been doing a lot more efficient things which with his moves now white plays rook to d2 again putting a lot of defense on this pawn to be two he probably doesn't need all this defense but again Bobby Fischer is still up in material so he's probably just trying to hold on to that trying to make sure that black doesn't sneak in for any crazy attacks here now black makes a huge blunder right here instead of going away from any potential attacks he actually brings his king closer to any potential attacks with King to d7 now he's probably thinking that he wants to get his dark squared bishop involved into the game and then he wants to swing his rook over into the action to the B file to support his other rook well that's all you know good it would have been much better if he would have brought his you know king over to b8 and then a eight it would have been much much harder for white to actually you know get over and attack that King you never want to bring your King into the middle of the game when your opponent has all of his major pieces and two of his minor pieces now once you reach towards the end game Queens are off the board you know there's not all the minor pieces and both the rooks on the board then you actually want to bring your King into the game he's actually a huge asset to your attack bringing him into this in the game but when your opponent has all these attacking pieces the center of the board is not where you want your King you actually want him protected in a corner somewhere just hiding out hoping that your opponent does not attack you now if there's one thing that Bobby Fischer does well it's he smells weakness and he attacks weakness so he realizes that Black has made a blunder here he's brought his King closer to the action and so he's going to attack that weakness so Bobby Fischer now plays Knight to f4 this is kind of the attack on the King side he's been waiting for he now has you know a strong defense with his King here on a1 he's kind of tucked in this corner and he's now going to start to attack black decides to bring his Bishop to e7 if we kind of look at it with this exchange here let's let's just move the pawn here to a6 after the exchange here you know the King could always come here to e6 and kind of become more out in the open but if the pawn takes here on e6 then the Queen can come up here to f7 check the king and then win this rook here on g8 so definitely wants to make sure that he can't just come up to f7 and check so one of the ways that he can do this is to early on bring his Bishop to e7 so that's exactly what he does here and then Bobby Fischer takes this pawn here on h6 so you know this Bishop here on f8 was protecting this pawn here on h6 but no longer so Bobby Fischer comes in and takes this also has a strong attack he now has another major piece involved into the game and again black has his King into the center of the board now blacks going to play a rook to f8 trying to control and protect this pawn here on f7 and Bobby Fischer is going to play Queen to f3 he really wants to make sure that his queen is on light squares anytime he's going to exchange off let's say with this Bishop here on e6 he definitely wants his Queen on a light square so if he wants to he can get involved into the action and attack at any given time with his Queen here on f2 it's kind of passive it's not doing a whole lot it's going to take a few moves for him to get involved into the action so he plays Queen to f3 again Bobby Fischer's Queen side is safe so all he's doing is trying to meticulously bring all this pieces together on the Queen's excuse me on the Kings side and mount an attack so from here black plays rook to a6 you know trying to come up with some attack on the Queen side attacking the White Queen excuse me the White King but all white has to do is play pawn to a3 and this pretty much just thwarts any attack that black has he does have the pawn that's protecting this he also has the night here they can also defend the square on a three Black is now going to bring his rook over to b8 again trying to try to find some way to attack but this rook here on b8 s not doing a whole lot it is attacking this pawn here on b2 but too little to bobby fischer's now going to take with his knight on e6 and after the exchange the King can't come right now to e6 because the rook there on h6 so he's going to take with his pawn here and then Bobby Fischer's actually going to sacrifice his rook here on e6 this Bobby Fischer does again any time he smells blood or weakness he's going to attack that so he's willing to give up this rook here on e6 now just kind of go over the variation you know like Kevin why can't he just take that definitely want to show you guys that if he does take the rook here on e6 then Bobby Fischer can just play white – you know Queen the g4 here the only possible move we can't come to d6 Midna scant come back to these seven you can't come to f6 his only move is King to f7 Bobby Fischer can now play pawn to e6 and now mid this has two options he can bring his King to e8 if he wants to or he can also bring his King to f8 e eights actually going to lose quicker so we'll kind of go over that variation if mid this plays King to e8 then after the Queen to g8 the bishop has to defend and then it's checkmate for Bobby Fischer now if he does move mid this does play King to f8 then all Bobby Fischer has to come in and play Queen to g6 and there is absolutely no stopping the Queen coming to f7 for checkmate now you know min this could have if you wanted to kind of you know slow up the game you could have come down and captured and then after the capture recapture and then he takes you could have even brought his rook down to be one if you wanted to after all the captures Dunnan kind of menaces given all the opportunities to delay the game you know it's still inevitable no one can stop the Queen coming to f7 so it's kind of curious you know Bobby Fischer's giving up that rook why can't the King just take that that is the exact reason so I think in this particular case mid this actually gets more flustered because he makes an even worse move so in this particular case black probably should have tried to bring his queen involved into the action you know maybe Queen to d8 he needs to protect you know his bishop there on e7 but he also needs to have a defender he needs to realize that his attack against the court against the white king is not going anywhere there's actually not enough pieces coordinated correctly to do an attack so he needs to come up with a better idea Queen to d8 is a better idea here but instead he plays Bishop takes on a three and Bobby Fischer recaptures with his knight again there's no great move for Midna s– to play in this situation the king is now going to capture with his king here on e6 and that's pretty much good game from here Bobby Fischer plays Queen to g4 the kings can come back to e7 and Bobby Fischer plays rook to f2 getting ready to come involved into the game you know again blacks just kind of wishing that something could happen on the Queen side but it doesn't so a few more moves comes brings his rook over to e8 which really doesn't do anything productive but it doesn't really matter Bobby Fischer now white plays Queen to g5 check the King goes back to d7 you know continue with the moves right here white plays f5 check King goes over to b8 white plays d7 and black in this situation actually resigned there's no way to stop Bobby Fischer coming to b7 checkmate now you know Midna sif he wanted to could have always delayed the game it could have brought his Queen involved into the game he could have if he wanted to Eve you know taking this night and then taking it with his rookie if you wanted to but you know in this situation he decided to just go ahead and resign so a very very exciting game from a 14 year old kid his first ever u.s. championship to come in place someone six years older than him and to win his very first u.s. championship very very exciting hope you guys enjoyed this hope you learned something as far as looking at different positions and thinking about what both sides can do different ideas that they can do an attack defending your own King and then focusing on other sides of the board or weaknesses that you see your opponent have so definitely leave comments let me go let me know what you guys think about it also if you have any questions for

    I noticed a lot of future thought in the move choices of the players. I know video length reduces commentary time but it could help others if those future attacks were mentioned. Some moves don't make sense unless the threat that developes 3 moves forward is revealed in the analysis. In any case, thanks for the replay and thoughts!

    "Get the Bishop involved into the game"–I've never heard this expression before. And I hate "thee" for "the" before a word that begins with a consonant. And I hate "ay" for "a" always. Not to mention the general verbal diarrhea.

    The American Chess Congress was the official sponsor of the BOBBY FISCHER INT’L CHESS PARK proposed to be built in Santa Monica to honor the only American to have won the World Chess Championship. Bobby had an impressive career and for many is considered the greatest in chess. He began to study chess at the age of six and became a voracious student of the game. Fischer won the United States Chess Championship at the age of fourteen and at fifteen became the youngest Grandmaster at that time. In two consecutive years, he won the United States Chess Championship with a perfect score and has held the title eight times. In 1972, he captured the World Chess Championship with a decisive lead. In 1975, the Soviets and the International Chess Federation [FIDE] claimed the title on forfeiture in what is still a controversial issue and thus began the FIDE World Chess Championship. In 1992, Fischer emerged to play a rematch for the real title and won in good fashion. He died in 2008.

    The chess tables at the foot of the pier in Santa Monica, California are known of internationally. It was the former site of the old Santa Monica Bay Chess Club. Bobby first played in Santa Monica during the Piatigorsky Cup [a strong international tournament] in 1966. When Fischer lived in Pasadena in the late eighties, he would delight many with his visits to the tables. For these reasons, the tables have been selected to honor a great American chess hero.

    I think the reason Bobby didn't take on b5 with his knight is because black would be moved his queen to b6, then move his knight, then get an open file on the queen side where black can attack him with his rook and his queen. 12:20
