May-06-09  ToTheDeath: Fischer's first KID in the database. Amazing how strong he was even at that age. Can you imagagine sitting across the board from some 12 year old kid and he thrashes you this bad?

Of course Black is winning here- maybe Bobby was in time pressure or just afraid of losing to an older opponent.
