Karpov on Fischer - Bobby Fischer's Quest For the Crown

Fischer meets the Scandinavian Defense (1.e4 d5) with the sharp 6. Qf3 and then sacrifices his c-pawn to complete his development and gain the half open c-file. Once his own king is secure, Fischer gives Black the bishop pair with 11. Bxf6 and tries to blast open the center with 12. d5! Although black keeps the center closed with 12. ...e5, Bobby gives a textbook demonstration of play on the light squares (e4 and f5). Black manages to collect the white pawn on d5, but after 19. Rfd1! and 20. Nc3! the black defenses begin to crumble. The crushing exchange sacrifice 21. Rxd5! was followed by 23. Rb1 and penetration with 24. Rxb7. In the final position, Karpov explains why Black's king in the center is surrounded and doomed.

Anatoly Karpov the Twelfth Wolrd Champion discusses games he personally selected of the American Chess Legend Bobby Fischer (1943-2008). Thes games were played during Fischer's "Quest for the Crown" and prior to the 1972 "Match of the Century".
