Fischer,Robert James
Sherwin,James
Sicilian Defense, 33 moves. The 14 year old Bobby
Fischer capitalizes on a few inaccuracies and
builds up a strong attack. Sherwin finds several
ingenious moves but fails to avert defeat against
Fischer's exact play. Fischer was world champion
f r o m 1 9 7 2 - 1 9 7 5 . 1.e4
Fischer almost always
began with this move. c5
The Sicilian Defense.
2.¤f3 Developing. e6 3.d3 More usual is 3. d4.
White's move leads to a closed game called the
King's Indian Reversed. ¤c6 A good developing
move. 4.g3 To place the bishop on g2 where it will
reinforce the pawn on e4 and put pressure on d5.
¤f6 5.¥g2 ¥e7 6.0-0 0-0 7.¤bd2 This is better
than Nc3 which would prevent White from moving a
p a w n t o c 3 . ¦b8 This allows the b pawn to move
forward without fear that White's bishop on g2 will
threaten the rook. Black is planning a queenside
counterattack to White's coming kingside attack.
8.¦e1 Placing the rook in the center and leaving f1
available for the knight which often, from there,
goes to e3 or even to g4 via h2. d6 This is more
passive than the more usual d5. 9.c3 Preparing to
play d4. b6 9... b5 would have given Black better
chances. 10.d4 White now has a strong positon in
t h e c e n t e r . £c7? In a few moves White will have
threats based on playing Bf4 and attacking both the
queen and the rook. 11.e5! The center pawns are

on the move. Black's best is now 11. .. dxe5 12.
dxe5 Nd7 although Black's position would be
cramped and his pieces would be in each other's
way. ¤d5 12.exd6 ¥xd6 13.¤e4 If 13... Be7
then 14. c4 Nf6 15. Bf4. If 13... cxd4 then 14. Nxd6
Qxd6 15. c4 Nf6 16. Bf4. c4 This is the only move
to avoid the loss of material. However, it takes the
pressure off of White's center leaving him free to
conduct a kingside attack. Black has no prospects
for a counterattack in the center or for a queenside
attack. 14.¤xd6 £xd6 15.¤g5 Beginning the
kingside attack. Although it weakens his kingside, it
turns out that Black should have played 15... h6
here. ¤ce7 Bringing the knight to the defense of
the kingside. 16.£c2 Threatening Qxh7#. ¤g6
17.h4
Threatening h5 and the knight can't move
because of the mate threat. ¤f6
18.¤xh7!
A stunning surprise. If 18... Kxh7 then 19. Bf4
winning the rook on b8. ¤xh7 19.h5 To drive
a w a y t h e k n i g h t a n d t h e n p l a y B f 4 . ¤h4!
Black finds an ingenious way to counterattack.
20.¥f4 £d8 If now 21. Bxb8? then 21... Nxg2 22.
Kxg2 Bb7+ 23. Kg1 Qxb8 and Black would have a
bishop and knight for a rook and would be in a
strong position. 21.gxh4
¦b7!
Helping in the
defense and tempting White to play 22. Bxb7 so
that after 22... Bxb7 White would have no piece to
defend his white squares. Black's queen and
bishop would be very dangerous on the a8-h1
diagonal. 22.h6! Continuing e attack on the king.
The best defense is now 22... g6 but White would
still have a far superior position. £xh4? 23.hxg7
¢xg7 24.¦e4 Threatening 25. Be5+ winning the
queen. £h5 25.¦e3 Threatening 26. Rh3 Qg6 (Or
26... Qa5 27. Qxh7+) 27. Rg3 pinning and winning
the queen. f5 Blocking the White queen's attack on

hopeless. If 33... Bd7 then 34. Qxe6+

FISCHER (Born 1943) Usually the style of a
chessmaster has to grow; it may take years before
one may speak of any style at all. As a rule the
young player begins with pure combination, and
then in the course of time finds that he must add
water to win. He learns the methods of positional
play, and develops endgame technique. It is quite
possible to begin as a combinative player - a
tactician - and yet in maturing to acquire an outand-out positional style of play. The exceptional
Grandmaster Fischer, however, is another and
almost unique story in modern chess. At the age of
twenty he already possessed a fully rounded style.
He is both tactician and strategist, an openings
expert without peer, and a virtuoso of the endgame.
The following game against Reshevsky is a good
example of his super-class, technical style 1.e4
