Bobby Fischer wins with the Fischer-Sozin Attack in 17 moves

Bobby Fischer produced a chess miniature against Peter Dely in 1967. In reply to black’s Sicilian Classical variation, Fischer employed the Fischer-Sozin Attack. This game’s key element is time. Black wastes it, and Fischer quickly pounces, executing the main idea of the Fischer-Sozin Attack and forcing black’s resignation after only 17 moves.
