In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov analyzes a game played by Bobby Fischer (Robert James Fischer) as White in a Simul Event in New York on May 24, 1964. Fischer played against 34 opponents in this Simul and he won against all of them!

In this game, he played the aggressive Bishop’s Opening which happens after the first moves: 1.e4 e5 2.Bc4. He played an aggressive variation 4.f4 which is similar to the King’s Gambit setup. He set a really cool trap and checkmated his opponent in just 16 moves!

  1. What happens if black plays Ng4 instead of d6?

  2. If I had a time machine I would go play those simuls with Fisher

  3. Nf3. Then after any move by black, Ng5. Mate is unstoppable.

  4. Great presentation probably the best attack i have seen so far!!

  5. Rh1, any move except Rg7,
    Qxh7, forced move

  6. 5:46 why you want to do Rf8, king can easily escape d2 -> c1 then after knight sacrifice at max, rest of the logic doesn't make sense. Also no one would keep bishop to c4 for such long, seeing these attack it can be easily eliminated, may be pushing pawn to d5 earlier

  7. Love the channel. I thought chess was a chess and then I watched this channel and gained a MASSIVE appreciation for it.

  8. After the Queen move to g3, I would consider poisoning the KNP with Qe7. After Qxg7, O-O-O whips up a counterattack, I have seen too many Frankenstein-Dracula Gambits to be interested in going after White's QR, Fisher may still beat me anyway but he has had some notoriously bad luck with poisoned pawns, especially with Kovacevic.

  9. who is black woh is white , only at second 0:04 the information was set, for hundert milliseconds.

  10. Its a delayed Vienna gambit. Just learn the Vienna

  11. I think that the temptation of Nxc2+ is always too great for a weak player like I.
    I see it as a mini-checkmate – a major piece for a knight or nothing, if you can get him out again. But if I'm fixated on it, my opponent will attack on the kingside.
    These are wonderful videos. Thank you.

  12. What happened to Black pushing pawn to G 6 ?

  13. Rh1

    Interesting since several other move orders don't work.
    If you give black 1 extra tempo, the king can slip away, however on-board black has no useful moves and MUST defend g7++ with the rook

  14. Robert Fischer? Never heard any call him Robert before =)

  15. Knight to G6, pawn must take knight ; Pawn to F7, Quen takes pawn, Rook takes queen…then no matter what black does the gig is up… Queen takes pawn H7 mate. Thank you ! It was fun.

  16. At 4:50, black can move the rock to G7, or even Queen F6, can they not? And then end up castling on the queen side.

  17. h3 was an innacuracy by Fischer! He could play fxe5 and force Bxf3 avoinding h3 and thus saving a tempo (if you do not take the night and instead you capture back on e5 then bxf7+ Kxf7 Nxe5 forking king and bishop).

  18. Игорь, вы не спрячете свой акцент. Я вам гарантирую)

  19. Love the sleeping cat in the background!

  20. Kindly provide white’s next move if after Knightf3 black responded with knight g5? I’ve been struggling to find out the best reply by white. Thank you very much, sir and more power.

  21. Thats a good open because youwin the horse if he takes your horse.

  22. You talk too much like an insane woman

  23. I love the timing on your vid and the recap at the end! Attention Spand for somebody like me it’s perfect. thanks man

  24. Taking the pawn on f4 (and just letting white get it back) and doing something like Be6 seems a bit better than trading with a knight…

  25. Try Ktf3 any move by black kt g5 and black has no reply?

  26. Puzzle:
    Knight e5 takes pawn g6. Pawn f7 takes Knight g6. Pawn f6 to f7…
    1) If Queen b7 takes the pawn f7. Rook g1 is ready to take Queen back. Any move black makes after that. Queen h6 takes pawn h7 and it’s checkmate.
    2) If Rook g8 moves to f8, then Queen h6 takes Rook f8 and it’s checkmate.

  27. 1. Nxg6+ fxg6 2.f7 Rf8 3.Qxf8# OR 2. f7 Qxf7 3.Rxf7 ( any random move for black ) Qxh7# OR 2. f7 (random move) 3. f8=Q RxQf8 4. Qxf8# plus you have even more possibilities which still end in an inevitable checkmate.

  28. Hi Igor, but here black lost the chance of forking the the knight and bishop in the 3. move of the game!

  29. Igor – thank you for the video. How does white prepare for black’s counterblow move after 4….Nxe4 , after 1. e4 e5; 2.Bc4 Nf6; Nc3 ?

  30. My problem is, im so bad that my opponents never play logical moves.

  31. 1-Rook to f4
    2-Queen take on h7
    3-Rook to h4 mate

  32. After this video I have felt like 1/100 of Fisher – God shine on his soul.

  33. 1.Nf3 2.Ng5 3.Q×h7 Mata.
    Rh1 doesn't work because of the pawn on e3. And N×g6 either because of the Queen on b2.

  34. After Qg3, what about G6? I would play this but can't be sure until I know what to do

  35. 4:30 black can castle which is the best move and after white plays fxe5 black plays knight h5 attacking the queen and balck is better

  36. Qxg7 then I play Kd7 I go for hand castles hhh

  37. Rh1-e2 or whatever black move
    Kg1 mate

  38. Instead of 3. Bc5? black can play 3. Nxe4! with advantage. For this reason most players choose 3. d3
