    I liked this video: Fischers moves were so clear and simple, but asking us to find the moves ahead of time, underscores his mastery of the concept of light and dark squares and his mastery of dynamism. As GM R. Byrne once said, "... this is a mystery known only to Fischer." Even now this is very true. Mr Fischer understood these concepts without a computer program.

    nice presentation you're like the "Anti-Rensch" presenter ... calm, cool, collected ... nothing "over the top crazy"  just a clear straightforward explanation of this classic game!  Nice work.  Love Rensch but like you're style ... keep it up!

    I have looked at this game a number of times on youtube etc but this is the 1st time with such detailed analysis. Its all been said about Fischer but I never tire of seeing his creativity, co-ordination & insight. Thanks for the vid....

    Excellent presentation!! Exceptional use of learning dynamics. On a critical note, I recommend checking up on facts before making the video. Of course, this is a reference to the so called "21 games" comment which became, "to be safe, at least 10 games ..." Why not just run the info down? Still, the presentation was superior.

    Thank you, Charles. It is a classic lesson and helped me understand both the strategy around the c file but also all of that business about b b5. Your work is appreciated!

      Side note. The exact opening moves of this game had been played in Furman vs. Geller, 1970 including 14.Bb5. Efim Geller was Spassky's second during the 1972 World Championship and was reported to suggest the idea to Spassky about playing 14...Qb7. A pivotal moment in the game. Spassky was such a gentleman that he applauded Fischer's victory along with the audience.

    Fischer was playing a mind game with spassky, he lost the first on purpose after arriving 1 minute before he would be given a forfeit by capturing a pawn which trapped his bishop, losing later. He was trying to mix up his playing style as much as possible. Spassky later suggested that chemicals were being blown into the air, or the orange juice was poisoned, or there was something in his chair that was altering his mind, and he lost 12.5-8.5

    Good video. Charles, you sound just like Matt Damon.

    Love the way you talk about a piece and at the same time hover it over the board to emphasise it's movement.  That really helps beginner players, as opposed to just mentioning coordinates.   Many thanks.

    IMO, It's way overexagerated to considere Spassky/Fischer as "Match of the century"!

    Talk about Kasparov/Karpov instead!

    White player is always listed first so, R. Fisher is white and B. Spassky is black.
