Game Six

Chess Champion Bobby Fischer

I mentioned Game six of the Fischer -Spassky duel in my last post and it is a truly beautiful game. These days there are many good online resources and I personally enjoy watching some of the many excellent youtubers.

Inevitably many have focused on this historic game and I have watched several but my favourite account is shown below – if you enjoy the video you might even subscribe to watch more of the ChessNetwork.

I love the way that Fischer exercises control over his opponent with such simple moves. There is a strong element of prophylaxis where he prevents Spassky from creating any counterplay.
