  1. italian glance senate ggwywa sales objective definitely poem ranch instructor forgive status.

  2. Fischer was not crazy he was a nice friendly guy that was nice to people that that didn't want to use him, he is the guy that did the most for USA in the Cold War, he beat the mighty chess machinery the Russians had, saying that nobody could beat them, but he had them analysing all the way to Vladibostok to find how he could take the poisoned pawn and get away with it. They were never the same after he beat them. Even if his own country didn't back him up as we should have done.

  3. awesome game to watch great sidelines too thanks

  4. What a beautiful game I remember playing the same game on others after my dad showed me when I was 6 or 7 years I was runner up NZ and Aussie school boy champ when 7-8years old the next youngest player was 16 he was the only game I lost. I beat the Aussie champ a 23year old varsity student we had one loss each but he won the championship on a count back I gave up playing the game at 12yrs. when my dad broke up with mum and I had no one to play and couldn't afford to play for the club. I started playing Rugby instead. The notation is completely different to when I played I could play a whole game blind folded and knew where every peace was the notation was like P-k4 P-k4 Kn-KB3 Kn-QB3 B-B4 B-B4 O-O etc.

  5. I have watched this multiple times, @20:32, why doesn't the White Queen just take the black Knight on C3? It protects everything except the White Rook on D1. That Knight on C3 is the main problem. Kill it. Then what happens? Black Queen takes C5, recapture with the pawn on D4, Black dark square bishop captures the White queen on C3, then Light Square bishop on C4 captures the black light squared bishop on E6, followed by Rook E8 to E6 to capture the light squared bishop. Play from there. The exchange leaves the pawn structure in shambles, but it's playable. White still probably loses down two pawns with black in total control of the dark square diagonals because of the remaining dark square bishop. But it is 2 rooks vs. 2 rooks, and a knight vs. a bishop, and 6 pawns vs. 4 pawns. Pretty bad, but playable. Anyway, I was yelling at a video that is 3 years old about a game that occurred over 60 years ago. So, who is the crazy one now?

  6. I really liked the analysis, the possible moves & counter moves, thats what these vids are for, its enjoyable and educational, if you gripe for a high speed version just get the game moves & play on your own board.

  7. Amazing considering Fisher was 13 years old.

  8. Very interesting and ingenious sacrifice strategy.

  9. Hi kingscrusher – you asked people on the CCCC chat to comment on this video. You could do a bit less commentary on the opening transpositions, since they aren't particularly relevant to this game.
    I like the much deeper coverage of the moves just before the shocker – most commententors seem to largely ignore them. I also like the coverage of most (all?) of the other plausible responses to N a4 and why
    they fail, plus how to push the advantage after Byrne's actual response. And all the rest is great. This game has been covered so many times – there isn't much point in doing the usual shallow analysis.

  10. I liked your proposed scenarios and option of moves but sometimes I just lost the thread of the game as there was too much of your time between the players moves.

  11. Like in real life !
    Lady Queen used as bait to trap men into submission…

  12. Probably my favorite game. Waitzkins first big win was a good one too. Sacs there too!

  13. the only time Bobby Fisher lost multiple games in a row,was twice under the age of 16!! he lost 4 strait to Spaasky and 4 strait to Mikhail Tal,all in Russia when a 15 year old Fisher ist came there in 1958, Tal later became world champ in 1960, an Spassky was at the time top of his game and a world contender. Fisher crushed both of them after 16 years old. bobby blanked Tal an beat him also in the blitz .Bobby crushed Spassky an won the world championship!!

  14. wen white played rook D1, in minut 4:10 and bishop G5 5:30 then you dont need to watch anymore becaus white shoud play bishop E2 and casel but he played oposit bishop and miss to castel
    after that robert use that and crush him becaus that was really bad and so bad move that i wen i wach it and put my self in white position i woulde imidiatly put my king on saifty

  15. I played just as good a game in my first adult tournament,but I lost the score of the game.

  16. Absolutely amazing,what a player,probably the best who ever lived,so dominant.

  17. Perhaps tint the entire board a light pink while strategizing? Then back to normal for actual moves by the players?

  18. There was no one better than Fischer..there will be no one better than him.. This guy is impossible to emulate.

  19. Really enjoyed this, cheers for posting

  20. Nice game. But the subtitling down is a little bit annoying, disturbing.

  21. You would think chess had been played for over 10,000 years with all these "games of the Century" titles.

  22. cook with Anoop #food #travel #shorts says:

    white should take the black knight

  23. cook with Anoop #food #travel #shorts says:

    black knight goes out on C 3 by white queen whats the problem in that

  24. Mind-blowing calculations from a 13-year old Fischer

  25. Great stuff, but 4 commercial breaks make your videos unwatchable… so annoying.

  26. if anyone found listening to the above video torturous, i advise playing at 1.5x

  27. And Fischer was only 13 at the time!!! Just W O W !!! The best of the best! That super successful "Queen's Gambit" tv series is based on what Bobby did back in 1970's when he crushed the whole Russian chess machinery. So Elizabet Harmon is actually Bobby Fischer!

  28. This chess art goes far back as I can remember back when my father bought an Apple II+. I'm saying literally the exact same design.

  29. wow indeed, that Q sac was a thing of beauty

  30. Thanks for the Breakdown and Commentary on this Game I believe I’ve seen it before who could forget watching the discovery checks by the knight as piece by piece picked off Board Brilliant I love Fischer’s games he and Tal Mikhail are my favorites they’re both very stylish players I find Magnus kind of boring and predictable at times I probably have to see more of his games I know he is very good at end games

  31. This video showed up again, can't stop watching it

  32. Lost the thread of what actually happened with all the conjecture and sidetracked speculation. Downvoted.

  33. Bullshit this was game of century, Byrne was a weak gm here😅😅😅
