The title of this video is wrong; it should say Donald Byrne vs Bobby Fischer. The name of the player with the White pieces *always* comes first.

At 22:00 why didn't Fischer instead play BD6? He would have checked the King and attacked the Queen, and the Bishop would be protected by the knight. He would have gotten a free Queen if he did this. Is there something I'm missing?

16:50 why doesnt white horse take the black horse? He could've better trade and save that bishop (or whatever you call it)

Wouldn't it have been better if Fisher instead of sacrificing the Queen at 15:40 played black queen b1... this would allow to retake the rook then by his knight assuming that the white rook takes the queen, then the white queen at a3 would have been attacked... or am I missing something

At the end I would have moved the king to H-2. Would that be a good move? I haven't really played in a while, and back then I could only see 2 moves ahead. So yeah, its when the king starts to move into check at the very end.

wtf at 2:00 hes tower jumps into F 8 and king jumps to G 8 in the same move.. First of all king only moves one square. Tower had to move so that's a whole turn. The king then magically jumps over the tower.. And moves 2 squares instead of one.. Fixed game.

Why did he have to become a holocaust denying nutback in his later life? :( I guess like so many geniuses who go down in history, what they bring into their respective fields, they lack in a lot of other parts of their life. He was a quirky and weired guy even as a young man, but he really screwed up in his later life, being a jew-hating *sshole. I don't even hate him for what he said against jews (I'm not jewish, but German, and due to our history we are very sensitive when it comes to jew-hating) and about the holocaust (he was not allowed to live in the U.S. anymore), but I really pity him and try to seperate the brilliant chess player who made so many people happy from the disturbed man he became later. R.I.P. Bobby Fischer

Game of what century? Fisher has an interesting story and they once made a reasonably successful movie about him where they made him some kind of mystical hero figure. But by god did his reputation as a chess player get blown out of proportion. Game of the century my ass.

How many different scenarios can chess grandmasters anticipate within maybe 5 moves made in the game?

Bill: Hey Bobby Fischer, don't touch that! Ellie: Bobby who? Here you go Ellie.
