This is one of my favorite games. It's nice to hear it clearly explained by a Fide Master. Thanks.

As the author, FIDE Master Lilov, points out -- This game was one of Bobby Fischer's finer moments (at the age of 14 no less). Of course the Grunfeld theme is continued with flare, and we see the instructive idea illustrated: Just because you have the center, doesn't mean it is an advantage. In many cases in fact, your extended center may become a target itself...

IM Valeri Lilov
Valeri feels fortunate to have learned to play chess from his father when he was only three, immediately becoming seriously engaged. By the age of seven he was able to play blindfold chess in several games at the same time. At the age of eight, he achieved a record-breaking ELO of 1985, and subsequently became the European Individual School Chess Champion U10 in Moscow, Russia. He has won over 30 medals in national and international competitions, and in 2008 achieved his highest rating of 2443 and in 2013, the title of International master.
