You have probably heard of Bobby Fischer's The Game of the Century, but can you exercise the same brilliance as Fischer did? Chess Review wrote: "The following game, a stunning masterpiece of combination play performed by a boy of 13 against a formidable opponent, matches the finest on record in the history of chess prodigies.". We will show you everything about the game. You will learn:
  • Moving the same piece twice in the opening wastes time: other pieces should be developed first.
  • Material sacrifices are likely to be effective against a king still in the middle and on an open central file.
