$5 million dollar Sicilian, Rossolimo variation

Robert James Fischer vs Boris Spassky, 1992

1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bb5 g6 ......and they're off!

Spassky did not seem to be playing at grandmaster level (and Fischer playing a sort of risky, Russian style game as well--Kasparov said he was phoning it in). Black, assuming he knows the complexities of the sicilian defense, has a fighting game; the sicilian often seems like knife-dueling compared to the usual king or queen side games. Spassky may not have been up to par on the rossolimo-sicilian. Kramnik playing black usually slices up white with this opening, as he did with one of the Polgar sisters a decade or so ago.
