Be3, 7. Qd2 and 8. f3. With the thematic 10. g4! and 12. g5! Bobby gains space on the kingside and drives the key defensive knight from f6. The star move 15. Nb6! allows Fischer to exchange off his weak knight on a4 and eliminate a black defender. The White kingside attack was in full stride with 19. h5, 21. Rdg1 and 22. g6! so Spassky tried to hide his king in the corner with 22. …Bf6 and 23. …Kh8, but Fischer’s 24. Bg5! and 27. Rhg1 followed by 28. Rxg7 opened the g-file. Fischer took a timeout on the queenside for the precautionary 30. b3! and then tripled on the g-file with 32. Qg2! As the clever clearance pawn sacrifice – 33. Rg8+ and 25. h7! was preparing a devastating blow, Spassky realized Fischer was going to open the h-file and therefore resigned.
