I followed fischer bust to kings gambit 3. d6 a high class waiting move.The match was very evenly poised but managed to pull through a win.So fellas better to play kings bishop gambit rather than kings knight gambit as fischer would say kings gambit loses by force.
Fezzik did spassky play kings knight gambit or kigns bishop gambit .Because fischer bust is applicable for only kings knight gambit even fischer won a lot of games playing kigns gambit after he published the refutation.But in all those case it is kings bishop gambit.
Yes Spassky did defeat Fischer in the king's knight gambit.
ok will look out for the game .
White made more than one mistake above, so I wouldn't say this game is evidence of a bust.
FEzzik the game was so close but still spaskky did refute fischer bust to some extent
sure Fezzik have u read the fischer bust to kigns gambit?
He says about the move d 6 "This is the key move to a troublesome postition, a high class "waiting move." At Mar Del Plata, 1959, I played 3. ....g5 against Spassky but this is inexact because it gives white drawing chances in the ensuing ending (see variation). Another good try, but also inexact is the Berlin Defense starting with 3. ...h6 (see 2nd variation). Of Course 3. d5 equalizes, but that's all.
Spassky-Karpov very cool indeed!
"And black wins. Of course white can always play differently in which case he merely loses differently."
Well gosh, that's pretty simple. OK, let's all go home (show's over)....
4.Bc4 is not White's only alternative. Most GM's don't play it now, as better lines have been found.
Sorry, a mistake above ... most GM's don't play it now because they consider d6 inferior for Black and never give White the chance at his own inferior move of 4.Bc4.
PAth finder can you show a game how recent GM play kings gambit ?
Just one game?
FEzzik your observation was interesting.Nice to read.
For what it's worth - a quick search using the chessgames.com database, ignoring the players' ratings, looking at games from 2000 to present, the King's Knight Gambit yeilded:3...d620 wins White20 wins Black5 draws
3...g535 wins White37 wins Black26 draws3...d518 wins White11 wins Black21 draws
3...Be78 wins White10 wins Black3 draws
Wow bat girl that was impressive .Welcome to kigns gambit forum.
Yeah if a schisophrenic person like Fischer ever wrote something about anything, by all means keep reciting it like mantra.
Refutations aren't based on a several-decade-old analysis and and 1700 rated game.
Is there any chance that a 1300 rated player can beat a 2700 rated player?
