  76. 0516) Larsen Fischer [3/28/67] The classic royal Indian, in which Fischer plays in a draw variation, creates a slightly better final and beats Larsen. This game can be seen as a drawing of Bobby’s overwhelming victory in the 1970 Candidates Matches.
  77. 0537) Fischer-Sofrevsky [8/67] Fischer shows that when given the opportunity, he can attack with the best of them. 15.Nd5 is a bolt that ends with a quick hit.
  78. 0540) Fisher-Miagmasuren [10/18/67] The attack of the king of the Indians shows a gradual increase of Fisher, as a result of which he makes a decisive sacrifice to the queen. A game to be played.

  85. 0574) Saidi-Fisher [1969] The only serious game Bobby played in 1969. It was awarded the “second best game of the first half” by the judges of the “Chess Informant”. Bobby uses the tactics of the boa restrictor on both sides of the board.
  86. 0575) Fischer-Petrosian [3/29/70] Bobby plays a previously considered harmless version of the Karo-Kann and kicks Petrosian off the board.
  87. 0598) Fischer-Georgiu [7/21/70] A perfect example of the combination of space, time and mobility, as Bobby puts it on the clamp. Each of the white figures is slightly better placed, and he squeezes out the victory in less than 40 moves.

  93. 0652) Fisher-Taiman [5/25/71] Fisher gathers another Bishop against a Knight finishing with Rook on the board. Bobby wins with another positional squeeze. Playing Black against Fischer at this stage of his career is torture. Bobby wins the match 6-0.
  94. 0655) Fischer-Larsen semifinal candidates match [7/6/71] in Denver. The first game stands out because Fischer finally caught up with the French winegrowers, winning the fight with Grandmaster Larsen on cuts and pushes. Bobby wins this match with a score of 6:0.
  95. 0661) Fischer Petrosian [9/30/71] Candidates match game one. Bobby wins after he is surprised by the opening novelty. It is an inaccurate game, but a good way to start the match with Petrosyan.
  96. 0667) Petrosian-Fisher [10/17/71] Candidates match 6th game. The score of the match was tied and this game broke Petrosyan.
