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.

A fascinating game by a 13-year-old -- it's remarkable that Fischer was already playing the Grunfeld at such an early age -- but "game of the century" is a reach. It is a tactical gem with little strategic content, set up by white's indifferent Qc5 and Bg5 rather than Be2. The game is basically over a dozen moves later. Rather than simply resign, Byrne gave Fischer the satisfaction of mating him, a generous gesture typical of him.

Something disheartening: being interested in something you have zero talent for

I think Fischer had this set up beforehand. It did not just come to him in a flash of brilliance at the tournament. There are just too many complications to analyze.

Why not capture the C6 Knight with the Queen?

Fischer was channeling Tal and his super-aggressive style. Ironically, it was Tal who would beat Fischer down the road. But both are geniuses.

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.

I think there's a bit of evidence that Byrne wasn't playing the absolute best move every time... perhaps underestimating Fischer a bit. From this video, we learn that his name is "BobbyFischer" and you have to say the whole thing every time. Plus, some of the analysis is pretty weak... 19:44 - consideration of Re8??? Come on...
