One Of Bobby Fischer’s Best Queen Sacrifices Ever

One Of Bobby Fischer’s Best Queen Sacrifices Ever
In this video I am analyzing a brilliant game played by Bobby Fischer against Rene Letelier. Letelier transgresses opening principles by neglecting his development in order to win material. But his plan fails, and he faces serious problems. After Fischer undermines White’s center, White finds himself overextended with his king still stuck in the center. Fischer rapidly organizes his attack and with a startling queen sacrifice finishes up the game.
