Bobby Fischer's 21-move brilliancy 4.5
UCCDOQrpqLqKVcTCKzqarxLg

Bobby Fischer creates a chess masterpiece in only 21 moves against Robert Eugene Byrne, an International Master, at the 1963/1964 United States Chess Championship, held in New York. At 20 years young, Grandmaster Robert James Fischer was already among the world's very best chess players. In this brilliancy, Fischer demonstrates how to inject multiple imbalances into a highly symmetrical position, how to properly highlight these differences to benefit oneself, and how to accurately assess the true value of the pieces as they rest on the board.

I'm a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.

If my voice sounds worn to you in this video, good ear! It's football season, and I tend to be a vocal fan. :) I hope you enjoy this video. *This was the 1st comment to this video, somehow it got lost/unpinned.*

Did I think I would sit through 20 minutes of this guy's voice and a simulated chess match? No. Did I? Yes. I even paused twice when he told me to.

I still remember how happy my older brother looked when I started beating him in chess. He really is the best brother I could hope for still.

"Your e pawn moved 1 square, I'm gonna show you how to move an e pawn, I'm gonna move 2 squares..", lol, I'm sure that was what Fischer was contemplating.

Bobby was so advanced in his time and being far ahead of everyone else unlike today's chess GM's. Modern day players like Magnus, Fabi and Ding might be better than Bobby, but Magnus for example uses engines to study. Bobby didn't have engines, he was almost an engine himself (self made). He probably understood that F2 pawn and G2 bishop were not worth 4 points as we suppose. Bobby probably valued them as a queen because he knew after the wrong rook moved that he had the game in the bag.

Thank you for analyzing this beautiful game Jerry. Bobby Fischer had such an amazing mind and could literally see things others could not. R.I.P. Bobby.
