Episode 3, The Beautiful Game (Chess)

The work depicts a single game from the 1972 World Chess Championship, held in Reykjavik Iceland – Game No. 6, Sunday 23 July – Queen’s Gambit Declined: Tartaktower Defence Exchange Variation (D59).

The players were Robert Fischer (USA), white (the challenger) and Boris Spassky (USSR), black (the world champion).

Each picture details white’s move and black’s response. The titles corresopond to standard chess notation. (I.e. the move’s number, an abbreviation of the piece moved [unless a pawn], and its vertical file and horizontal rank destination coordinates.) When a piece makes a capture, an “x” is inserted immediately before the destination square.

Black resigns after White’s 41st move – Queen to f4.
