Sixteen-year-old Bobby Fischer suffers four defeats against Mikhail Tal during the Candidates' Tournament of 1959. He faces Tal again at Bled in 1961, this time things turn out differently, the boy has become a man and he demonstrates that he will not be intimidated. Fischer trades his Queen for Tal's two Rooks, the strategy proves to be successful. This is Fischer's first victory against the Soviet Titan.
