Fischer Defense[edit | edit source]

Fischer called 3... d6 "a high-class waiting move." The idea of it is to avoid the Kieseritzky Gambit (1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf4 3.Nf3 g5 4.h4 g4 5.Ne5) and free the queen's bishop, as well as giving an extra space for the king to run to if necessary However, it also blocks the f8-bishop.
