Bobby Fischer has "disappeared" to the bathroom and has asked you to take over...don't mess up! He might never come back!

Fischer - Di Camillo / Washington 1956

This game was played when Fischer was 14. In the current position his king is in check. In the real game, Fischer's opponent would resign one move after this. Get the king out of check and use your tactics to finish Di Camillo off.

Remember these points:

  • The passed pawn on the 7th file is your greatest weapon. Use it as a wedge to rip the king apart.
  • Look for powerful tactics.
  • Do not trade pieces without good reason.
  • Once you have a decisive material advantage it is great to trade pieces.
