Fischer doesn't play 1.e4
Compiled by Penguincw
--*--

These are the 43 games in the database where Fischer has the white pieces and doesn't open with 1.e4. Fischer is known as an 1.e4 player, which, as he describes, is "Best by test".

When playing 1.e4, Fischer is +333,-73,=132 (399/532, or 75%). When Fischer doesn't open with 1.e4, he is +26,-6,=11 (31.5/43 or 73.3%). None of those games reached a king pawn game by transposition (ex. 1.d4 g6 2.e4 is basically the Modern Game).

Below is the breakdown for move choice:

1.Nf3 (20)
1. c4 (7)
1. b3 (5)
1. b4 (3)
1. d4 (3)
1. f4 (1)
1. g3 (1)

All 43 games can be found here: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches...

I am assuming that Fischer had 0 games with white that opened with something like 1.Nf3 Nc6 2.e4 e5 (technically not 1.e4, but transposing into a king pawn game, and being classified as so in the ECO).

Note: One game in the database (Fischer vs Spassky, 1972) was listed as among games that Fischer did not open with 1.e4, but are not included in this collection or the above statistics because it was a forfeited game (no moves were played). However, the game Fischer vs Panno, 1970, which opened with 1.c4 1-0, does count.
