14-year-old Bobby Fischer vs Dr. Max Euwe | The “Unpublished” Game | 1957

The is the 2nd of a 2-game exhibition match played at the Manhattan Chess Club New York, 1957 between 14-year-old talent Bobby Fischer, and Max Euwe, the 5th World Chess Champion. This game went unpublished for over 50 years until Frank Brady unearthed Fischer’s score sheet of it. Unlike the first game between Euwe and Fischer, this one was a closely contested fight which reached the final phase. Fischer had white, opening with the Ruy Lopez, and in reply Euwe selected an open system. Despite this open choice by Euwe, the game proceeded positionally, where imbalances in material and minor pieces soon surfaced. The game saw Fischer in the driver’s seat at the early to mid-game stage, but the Euwe found a way to fight back some in the final phase. What resulted in the end, was a surprise.
