How I Used Fischer’s Rule To Defeat A Grandmaster

Today I’d like to share with you a powerful chess rule from former world champion Bobby Fischer that can help you easily win against intermediate and advanced-level players. This universal principle applies to all your chess games, not just specific positions.

You will learn the best way to defend when your opponent is mounting a strong attack. Beginners often learn the basics of defense through passive defense, but as you progress, this approach becomes counterproductive. The main drawback of passive defense is that it allows your opponent to maintain the initiative and continue attacking.

That’s why it’s crucial to understand the concept of active defense, or counterattack. As I like to call it, “Offense is the best defense.” Instead of retreating and playing passive moves to fend off your opponent’s attack, you should look for opportunities to counterattack whenever possible.

Mastering this technique will transform your chess thinking system and enable you to defeat strong players, including grandmasters. In fact, I used this Fischer’s rule several years ago to defeat a grandmaster.

Watch the full lesson to learn this invaluable principle and see how it can elevate your chess game!
