How Bobby Fischer PUNISHES Bg4 Pins?

Perhaps in every other game that you play, your opponents might try to pin your knight with their bishop by playing Bg4 or Bg5, which is their attempt to start an attack against you.

And most players defend passively by placing their bishop behind their knight (Be2 or Be7) in order to unpin it. However, there are better ways to deal with such pins on your knights.

Today I’ll show you how to deal with pins on your knights aggressively. You will learn to brutally punish this pin by looking at the games of Bobby Fischer, one of the most brutal and aggressive chess players. In fact, very seldom did Fischer defend passively with moves like Be2 or Be7.
