About a month ago, I wrote in an article that I had watched the trailer of the movie “Pawn Sacrifice”, which is about the World Chess Championship Match – 1972 between Fischer and Spassky, and that I liked the trailer and was happy to see chess in mainstream cinema.

Today, we’re going to take a ride into ‘Fischer’s pawn sacrifice’. 🙂 It was the tenth game of the World Championship 1972, where Fischer made a pawn sacrifice that transformed the entire position.

During the event, Spassky had all the support of the Soviet Union, what was then called the “Soviet chess machine”, while Fischer had a much less support.

But the essential thing that Fischer had was outstanding preparation.
preparationTo discuss this, and to analyse this beautiful piece of the game, IM Valeri Lilov has prepared a very instructive video for you. 🙂 It is to honour the famous pawn sacrifice that Fischer made in that game.

P.S. Many chess players complain that chess is not as popular as it should be. Now you can add your contribution to changing it for the better! I look forward to receiving your chess photos, questions for AMA, etc. 🙂
