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.
To 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.
