Default Fisher's Queen sacrifice...


I was under the impression Fisher won one of the games against Spassky or
perhaps someone else in one of the chess championships by a queen sacrifice,
but I only see the reference to his queen sacrifice against Byrne, when
Fisher was 13. An overview of the 1972 tourny with Spassky does not
mention a queen sacrifice.
Any info on other Fisher queen sacrifices besides the one against Byrne?

I remember a pseudo queen sacrifice in game 13. Move 30.

Are you talking about the Botvinnik Fischer game from the olympiad?

I thought it was against Spassky, but now I'm interested in any that he
might have executed.

In game 11 Fischer lost his queen; that wouldn't really count.
