Fischer - Feuerstein New York 1957

In this game, Fischer is in the early rounds of the US Championship. He will go on to win this tournament. In this game, Fischer is up a piece. All he needs to do is use that extra piece to create a passed pawn and he is home free.

Fischer was 14 at the time of this tournament.

Remember these points:

  • In the opening position, look for a tactic that wins a pawn.
  • Use your extra piece to create a passed pawn.
  • Passed pawns must be pushed!
  • If you have a chance to trade one of your pieces for black's knight do it! When you are winning in material it is always good to trade pieces!
