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

Fischer - Hains San Francisco 1957

This game is the fourth round game in the US Junior Championship. Read a story about this tournament. Fischer in this game is up a full piece. Enough to easily win. Here his opponent resigns. See if you are good enough to convert the win as if Hains continued.

Fischer was 14 at the time of this tournament.

Remember these points:

  • Use your extra material to win a pawn and create a passed pawn.
  • Passed pawns must be pushed!
  • Outside passed pawns are strongest of all because they lure away black's defences.
