Title says it all!
Fischer v. Spassky, WC Match, 1972, 6th match game (if memory serves, it was #6). Fischer for the first time played the Queen's Gambit in a serious game. And what a beautiful game! Every move had that quality of Fischer at his best: "simple and good." I remember playing over that game and saying, "My God, I understand this! I could play like this!" But of course I couldn't. But Fischer's play had that marvelous simplicity about it that draws you right into his games.
There was a standing ovation from the audience when this one ended - and Spassky joined in!
Are you able to post the game?
http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1044366 edit: Game #3 is a Benoni, Game #5 is a Nimzo, and those are Fischer's wins before #6, which is indeed a QGD.
1st game in Yasser Seirawan's "Winning Chess Brilliancies" book. Very well played by Fischer.
Does Garry Kasparov vs. David Letterman count?
As long as there's a grandmaster in it.
Capablanca called this, in his own words, his "most finished and artistic game." The march of the c and d pawns signals the start of trouble that ends with a devastating combination. Beautiful stuff.
You're right! A wonderful game.
