This game analysis by IM Alex Astaneh is from a game that was played at the Rosenwald Trophy Tournament in 1956. The young 13-year old Bobby Fischer played the Gruenfeld Defense opening against the strong opponent Donald Byrne, who was 26 years old. The game was nicknamed as the “Game of the Century” and is one of the most memorable games ever played. In this game, Fischer offered a queen sacrifice which led to an unstoppable attack.

A really beautiful game by a 13-year old Bobby Fischer and this game marks one of the many early signs that Bobby Fischer would become one of the greatest players of all time.
