Fischer Favorites
Compiled by atrifix
--*--

My favorite games from my favorite player.

The game that started it all.
D Byrne vs Fischer, 1956  
(D92) Grunfeld, 5.Bf4, 41 moves, 0-1

Sometimes, precise defense is required.
S Bernstein vs Fischer, 1957 
(B99) Sicilian, Najdorf, 7...Be7 Main line, 44 moves, 0-1

A brilliant, not altogether sound combination.
Fischer vs Rodolfo Cardoso, 1957 
(B90) Sicilian, Najdorf, 31 moves, 1-0

A fairly obscure KIA-it resembles Lasker more than Fischer.
Fischer vs J Sherwin, 1957 
(B40) Sicilian, 33 moves, 1-0

This game is simply brilliant.
Fischer vs J Sherwin, 1957 
(B90) Sicilian, Najdorf, 36 moves, 1-0

One of the earliest trials of 13. dxc5 and a well-played ending
Fischer vs C Kalme, 1958 
(C98) Ruy Lopez, Closed, Chigorin, 57 moves, 1-0

A simple dismantling of the ...Nxd4 Dragon.
Fischer vs Larsen, 1958 
(B77) Sicilian, Dragon, Yugoslav Attack, 31 moves, 1-0

Fischer's first forays into the KID on an international level.
Petrosian vs Fischer, 1958 
(A16) English, 67 moves, 1/2-1/2

His best trait-turning complex problems into simple ones.
Gligoric vs Fischer, 1959 
(B99) Sicilian, Najdorf, 7...Be7 Main line, 57 moves, 1/2-1/2

One of the first of Fischer's exquisite Spanish games.
Fischer vs Shocron, 1959 
(C97) Ruy Lopez, Closed, Chigorin, 40 moves, 1-0

An opening rarity, but fine positional play.
Denker vs Fischer, 1959 
(D38) Queen's Gambit Declined, Ragozin Variation, 40 moves, 0-1

Winning with Black against one of the best players ever.
Keres vs Fischer, 1959 
(B99) Sicilian, Najdorf, 7...Be7 Main line, 53 moves, 0-1

The early version of the Sozin. Fischer wrings out the win.
Fischer vs Pilnik, 1959 
(B88) Sicilian, Fischer-Sozin Attack, 33 moves, 1-0

Fischer's brilliance is apparent in all phases of this game.
Fischer vs Keres, 1959 
(C99) Ruy Lopez, Closed, Chigorin, 12...cd, 81 moves, 1-0

How-to on accumulating small advantages.
Fischer vs Jacobo Bolbochan, 1959 
(B45) Sicilian, Taimanov, 50 moves, 1-0

Fischer's KID begins to be a little more successful.
F Olafsson vs Fischer, 1959 
(E93) King's Indian, Petrosian System, 40 moves, 0-1

This looks like the game against Shocron...
Fischer vs Unzicker, 1959 
(C97) Ruy Lopez, Closed, Chigorin, 65 moves, 1-0

Very famous, but still fantastic.
Fischer vs Benko, 1959 
(B57) Sicilian, 27 moves, 1-0

A peculiar-looking Dragon that works out quite well.
Fischer vs Gligoric, 1959 
(B57) Sicilian, 32 moves, 1-0

A great example of Fischer's impeccable technique.
Fischer vs H Rossetto, 1959 
(B41) Sicilian, Kan, 37 moves, 1-0

Despite Keres' opening optimism, Fischer played well.
Keres vs Fischer, 1959 
(A48) King's Indian, 27 moves, 0-1

Very instructive. A boy of 16 dismantles the former WC.
Smyslov vs Fischer, 1959 
(B99) Sicilian, Najdorf, 7...Be7 Main line, 54 moves, 0-1

A near miss-this one just had to be included.
Fischer vs Tal, 1959 
(B87) Sicilian, Fischer-Sozin with ...a6 and ...b5, 52 moves, 0-1

The famous encounter with Spassky.
Spassky vs Fischer, 1960 
(C39) King's Gambit Accepted, 29 moves, 1-0

This stuff is beautiful.
A Gudmundsson vs Fischer, 1960 
(D95) Grunfeld, 27 moves, 0-1

Another fine endgame, another victory.
Fischer vs Euwe, 1960 
(B14) Caro-Kann, Panov-Botvinnik Attack, 36 moves, 1-0

Fischer strikes like lightning on a clear day.
Letelier vs Fischer, 1960 
(E70) King's Indian, 23 moves, 0-1

Fischer happily exchanges a bishop and wins easily.
Szabo vs Fischer, 1960 
(E70) King's Indian, 24 moves, 0-1

Tal escapes again, but this time only manages a draw.
Fischer vs Tal, 1960 
(C18) French, Winawer, 21 moves, 1/2-1/2

Fischer's formula: get a bishop vs. knight, equalize, then win.
Uhlmann vs Fischer, 1960 
(E79) King's Indian, Four Pawns Attack, Main line, 43 moves, 0-1

Fischer busts up a French Winawer.
Fischer vs K Darga, 1960 
(C19) French, Winawer, Advance, 30 moves, 1-0

Another famous game, but still worth mention.
