  1. I somehow predicted the knight sacrifice 2-3 moves earlier

  2. During the end game of any chess review by levy put it into 0.5 playback speed. It is so entertaining.

  3. Bobby during the game: “Oh no my queen”

  4. My favorite game of Fischer is the one against the other Byrne, Robert where they were all saying Bobby should resign right when Robert resigned. It was witchcraft.

  5. Interesting that two of Bobby Fischer's most spectacular performances were against both Byrne brothers (Robert & Donald). This one in 1956, the other (vs. Robert) in 1963, when Fischer was 20 years old.

  6. How about 17. …Nb1? If 18. Rxb1 then 18. ….Qxb1+ 19. Nd1 Qxd1# or if 18. Bxb6 then 18. …Nxa3 and black wins either Bishop for free.

  7. The most entertaining player in chess history

  8. It's moments like 11:24 with that testosterone-filled queen announcement that draws me to subscribe and watch for more moments like those. Excellent work Levy. Reminds me of the great WWE legend Randy Savage.

  9. bobby the type of person to dare someone to play mate in 1 and win.

  10. Why does Bobby Fischer look like blonde and anemic Andy Samberg?

  11. WithScience As My Sheperd I Sleep A Carefree Sheep says:

    That 12 move mate Fisher delivered… it's in the book of "100 great games" he played.
    Quite and amazing checkmate

  12. actually, donald bryne spoke to some of his guys there and asked them, if he should let bobby mate him. They said "Why not". That´s why the game fully was played out and not resigned

  13. All I will say is he was probably late in traffic

  14. Pov: stock fish is telling you the move is sacrificing all of your pieces, snd you don't k on why you should do it, but it's still stock fish, so you somehow still win

  15. Yeah the bishop moved.

    Fischer fianchetto’d and went Bg7 on move 3

  16. Bobby fisher was an antisemitic fuck you shouldn’t put the light on this lil mf

  17. What was the time duration of this game? From what I’ve seen, most games were quite long from those years

  18. Bobby fisher is legendary player this game is just amazing truly the best game of the 20th century

  19. 1 + 2 + 2 + 1 or was it 1 + 2 + 1 + 1? Anybody remember what this was from?

  20. I don't understand why Bobby didn't fork king and queen after Qa3 move, anyone explain please

  21. On move 8 and 9, the engines really want to see black play Qa5, then it says a6 and Qd8. Black spends 2 moves to get white to push the b pawn.
    I know there's more going on, but Engines are strange.

  22. Hey, would be nice to see some games of Mikhail Tal and some of his bizare strategies and ideas.

  23. I recently won against 1600 bot huge boost😂

  24. Actually the best game of the century is the game between Boobie Angler and Magnum Carlos.

  25. it’s a breath of fresh air to see mate in these high level games
