Game Of The Century Revisited
On October 17, 1956 , at the Rosenwald Tournement in New York, Bobby Fischer faced down Donald Byrne with the Black pieces.
At that time in history, Donald Byrne was one of the top ten players in the United States.
On his move Bobby played 17... Be6 !! , thus sacrificing his Queen and engaging in an intensive King hunt from that move on , which resulted in Mate for Donald Byrne.
I am presenting this game in Chess Flash vertical format, complete with annotations and comments made by Grandmasters at that time.....diamondback
N.B. just click on any annotations and it will highlight in red, then you can play out that variation on the board.
