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

Fischer - Goldsmith / West Orange 1957

Here Fischer is up considerable material. He has traded his rook for black's two minor pieces which is considered wonderful for white, and he has an extra pawn to boot. Fischer shrugs and walks off and asks you to finish it thinking it is in the bag....but you must play accurately..

Key Points:

  • When castled on opposite wings of your opponent, a pawn storm is in order.
  • Activate all your pieces!
  • It is good to trade material when you are winning!
