Two masters at play

I will continue my tribute to both Bobby Fischer who passed away recently and Svetozar Gligoric who recently celebrated his 85th birthday by giving a win for each against the other. Bobby Fischer probably understood the Ruy Lopez better than any other player and the first game is a typical example of what can happen if the centre and queenside are closed and White gets a free hand on the kingside.

R Fischer – S Gligoric
Zagreb 1970

S Gligoric – R Fischer
Leipzig Olympiad 1960
