Bobby Fischer was a record-setting chess master who became the youngest player to win the U.S. Chess Championship at 14, and the first American-born player to win the World Chess Championship.
Bobby Fischer was born on March 9, 1943, in Chicago, Illinois. Fischer first learned the game of chess at age 6 and eventually became the youngest international grand master at the age of 15. In 1972, he became the first American-born world chess champion after defeating Boris Spassky. An eccentric genius, who was believed to have an I.Q. of 181, Fischer became known for his controversial public remarks in his later years. He was granted Icelandic citizenship in 2005, following legal trouble with the United States. He died on January 17, 2008.
Early Life
Robert James Fischer was born in Chicago, Illinois, on March 9, 1943. Fischer's parents divorced when he was a toddler, and he began learning chess at the age of 6 after his older sister Joan bought him a chess set. He continued to hone his skills as a youngster at the Brooklyn Chess Club and Manhattan Chess Club. Fischer had a strained relationship with his mother, who supported his chess endeavors, but preferred that he pursue other areas of interest.
A brilliant, highly competitive player who lost himself in the game, Fischer earned a place in the record books at age 14 when he became the youngest player to win the U.S. Chess Championship. Then in 1958, at 15, he became the youngest international grand master in history by winning the related tournament in Portoroz, Yugoslavia (now Slovenia).
Match of the Century
During the early 1960s, Fischer continued to be involved in U.S. and world championship matches, but was also making a name for himself with his erratic, paranoid commentary. After having a 20-game winning streak in the early 1970s, Fischer once again made chess history in 1972 with his defeat of the Soviet Union's Boris Spassky at the Reykjavik, Iceland world championships, thus marking the first time an American chess player had won the title. Fischer's defeat of a Soviet opponent, which became known as the "Match of the Century," took on iconic proportions in the midst of the Cold War and was seen as a symbolic victory of democracy over Communism. Fischer's historic win also made chess a popular game in the United States.

@agadmator I love the idea of Fischer seeing a move the engines didn't see but then as a technology person I thought the idea was far-fetched in this modern age. Don't you think taking with the rook on D7 is a mistake by Tigran? If he takes with the knight, he attacks the white rook on E5, meaning white can't immediately slip into the C file. And after white rook moves (probably taking the D5 pawn), now the black rook on A8 is free to grab the C file which changes everything. One pawn for one C file. I'd love to be wrong about this, but if black plays optimally is this move from Carlson really that strong?

Great comment at 2:30 (Now this Knight is a monster)

Why not Bb5 instead of Re1 at 1:43?

I guess they were not chanting “Ti-gran” after this game. Wow, Petrosian was a great player, but Fischer just turned it up a notch

#suggestion @agadmator can you cover this game, from utut adianto one of the strongest Indonesian grandmasters. I think you have enough subscribers from Indonesia, and also I think you have never covered an Indonesian chess grandmaster ... I think the beauty of this game is worthy of your coverage...

I am! The first thing I notice every time when I watch one of @agadmator's older videos is how much better his voice sounds in the newer videos. Is it just a new mic, or did he quit smoking?

After Qa4+ Qd7, why not Bb5 pinning the Queen? That wins the exchange(at least), doesn't it?
Sujoy Sen Gupta
I hope agadmator will address this in the remake of this video. :D
Sujoy Sen Gupta
Of course, there lies the difference between seeing three moves ahead and a 20 moves ahead. :D
Also, the Stockfish engine on chess.com gives White a +0.78, after black played ...Qd7. By going for Bb5, and the forced continuation, White somehow loses points because black counter-play is deemed sufficient for losing the exchange. Btw., Stockfish recommends White play either Le3, or Te1, which is Fischer's move.
Interesting. I thought you've must have missed something, but it turns out that white is guaranteed to win the exchange by Bb5. However, I put the position to Stockfish, and he does give some counter-play to Black, by continuing, 0-0, then d4, etc... you can try it yourself on chess.com. Maybe Fischer didn't want to complicate when he saw deep into the endgame, and knew he was winning.

How is bobby white in this one when he was white in game 5 too??

@مرتضى الدراجي yeah I see

agad blunder this is game 7 not 6

Bobby is white in game 6...but he was white in game 5?
Floyd Maxwell
I see that in the notes section now.
مرتضى الدراجي
this is game 7
at 6:00 why can't black push the pawn to a5?
Bennie Blanks
At 2:46 literally every one of Petrosian's pieces are tied down to defense of pawns.

I become less enamored with every video that I see. Personality does not make up for inadequate analysis. Given all the videos you make, and followers you have, one would think that you have the time to do it right. Make it happen.

1:16 Why didn't Petrosian take with knight so he wouldn't have an isolated D pawn??
Nghi Phan - Official Cubing Channel
because if Petrosian do so, Fischer would move the bishop D to E4 and pin that knight together with the A8 rook. Before that Fischer can move rook F to E1 check first. The D5 square has to many attentions but once the knight B to C3, white will win the exchange (a very big exchange involving every piece). Black bishop C to B7 won't be enough either. Take with the pawn is safer (so far)

Bobby Fischer deserves a posthumous Nobel prize for Chess. If you agree with me, click like on this comment. He was a bloody CHESS GENIUS.Thank you.

My friend (who do not know to play chess) gave the best definition of chess prodigies. He said - the supreme chess is just a form of autism. I agree with such statement, especially after reading biographies of Fisher and Tal, the most ingenious chess players so far (and watching interview with Carlsen during London sightseeing).

i love this. by creating isolated pawns in the middle game, one can create weaknesses in the pawn structure which will later affect the game in the end game. wow.

I love this game - it's ironically a lot like the Fischer-Tal game in round 13 of the 1959 candidates tournament. One player dominates the other so completely that you can see the iron logic of each move. (I personally like this game a little bit more because of 22.Nxd7!, and the descriptions of the reaction from the press room when they saw that move).

Why didn't Petrosian ever play a5? It would've given white a passed a pawn, but also would've freed his rook.

1:58 you explained Bc5 by saying he just wanted to exchange pieces and "go for the endgame" but considering he was Bobby Fischer and that he was white, I dont think this is correct. He more likely did it because you are supposed to exchange minor pieces when you are playing against a central isolated pawn
Joe Dorben
Joe Dorben 年 前
One of the largest reasons why I think Bobby Fischer is the greatest player ever is because of how he was consistently able to manhandle and actually defeat Petrosian, not many other players played as well against Petrosian on as consistent a basis as Fischer did
