Fischer was the world's expert on Busting the King's Gambit.


Fischer only played against the Gambit once, in his encounter with Boris Spassky, and lost to it. Fischer pounded out an article entitled, "A bust to the king's gambit", an article so convincing that the King's Gambit disappeared from Grand Master play.


No one ever tried the King's Gambit against Fischer ever again in tournament play.


To this day, the score is:

King's Gambit:1

Fischer: 0


So the question remains.....


Did Fischer bust the King's Gambit.....or did the King's Gambit bust Fischer???
