The Amazing Bobby Fischer
It does not take a chessplayer to realize that Bobby Fischer is an absolutely amazing man. Aside from his numerous chess accomplishments, he has an astronomical I.Q. with an exceptional memory; in the world of chess, no player has ever proved to be as devoted as Bobby Fischer. Fischer is "generally acknowledged as the greatest chessplayer of all time" (Pandolfini 1). Robert James Fischer was born in Chicago, Illinois, on March 9, 1943. His parents were divorced in 1945, and his mother moved him and his sister to Brooklyn a year or so later. "At the age of six he acquired a chess set and soon became deeply absorbed in the game" (Hooper and Whyld 115). This was the beginning of a legend. In 1963 Fischer played in and won the New York State Open Championship at Poughkeepsie, New York. During the last round I was involved in a complicated ending with Frank S. Meyer . . . Fischer, on his way to the washroom, briefly paused at my board -for perhaps five seconds- and then walked on. A few months later, he visited me at my office . . . "How did that last round game turn out?" he inquired. I told him I had won, but with difficulty. "Did you play Q-B5?" he asked. I told him quite frankly I couldn't remember what I had played. He immediately set up the exact position to "help" me remember, and then demonstrated the variation I should have played to have secured a much more economical win. The main point is . . . he remembered not only the position but also his fleeting analysis as he had passed my board months previously. (VII)

The world's greatest Chess player Robert James Fischer was born in Chicago, Illinois at the Michael Reese Hospital by the banks of Lake Michigan on March 9th, 1943. His father Gerhardth Fischer was born in Berlin, Germany in 1909, he was a biophysicist. His mother was Regina Wender. They separated when Bobby was 2 years old, and Regina had custody of Bobby and his older sister Joan who was then 7 years old. She was a qualified registered Nurse and wanted to take a Master's Degree at New York University in Nursing Education. She decided to move to Brooklyn. It is there that the legend of the world's greatest Chess player begins. On May 1949, Bobby and his sister Joan learned how to play the game with a Chess set given to them as a present. Both, six and eleven, learned the moves from the instructions that went with the set. Even as a six-year-old, Bobby became increasingly fascinated with Chess and enjoyed enough success in solving its complexities. By age seven, he was so thoroughly absorbed that his mother became worried. "Bobby isn't interested in anybody unless they play Chess and there just aren't many children who like it" she once said.
She also attempted to place an ad in the Brooklyn Eagle inquiring whether there might be other children of Bobby's age who would come and play Chess with him. On January 17, 1951 Bobby played a game against master Max Pavey who was giving a simultaneous exhibition and Bobby lost in 15 minutes. A few weeks later Bobby joined the Brooklyn Chess Club, headed by Mr. Carmine Nigro, President of the Brooklyn Chess Club and for the next few years he rarely missed a Friday evening.

Chess is not just a mentally challenging game to play. It is also a game that generates examples and analogies relevant to a broad range of intellectual concerns. If you do a search for "chess" here at TCS, you will find, among other things, Arnold Kling's discussion of man-versus-machine chess, Lee Harris's illustration in chess terms of the difference between rational and irrational enemies , Iain Murray's likening of Russian global-warming policy to a knight's move, and a piece by me noting philosopher Daniel Dennett's evocation of chess computers in his argument for the compatibility of free will and determinism. I am a competent chess player (unlike Kling, that is), albeit no threat to the world's grandmasters. After falling off in participation for a few years, I have recently played frequently perhaps a bit too frequently aided by the ready availability of opponents at chess websites like

Come clean, and do what your suppose to do do as a human being. People do things all the time that they don't want to do, but they have to. Come back to us.

Maybe you'll get lucky and get a little respect back, and maybe not, but at least you got off your lazy ass and done something instead of whining all the time like a little kid. For someone who has an i.q. of 180 or whatever you show no common sense. Think about it. Wonder just how many letters such as this Bobby has read?

    Bitte beachten:
    • "Zweizügige Rochade": Einen Zug mit dem König, einen Zug mit dem Turm. "Platzwechsel-Rochade": König und Turm wechseln die Plätze. "König-Rochade": nur der König zieht. "Turm-Rochade": nur der Turm zieht.
    Beim FRC spricht man nicht von langer und kurzer Rochade, sondern von "a"-Rochade (entspricht 0-0-0 ) und "h"-Rochade (entspricht 0-0). Egal, wo König und Türme zu Beginn stehen, wenn sich eine Partei zur Rochade entschließt, finden die beiden Figuren ihr vertrautes Plätzchen: Bei der so genannten "a-Rochade" der Turm auf d1 (d8) und der König auf c1 (c8), bei der "h-Rochade" der Turm auf f1 (f8) und der König auf g1 (g8) Ansonsten sind aber die üblichen Rochade-Regeln zu beachten:
    Bemerkung: Beim FRC kann es vorkommen, dass nach der "a"-Rochade (0-0-0) auf den Feldern a1, b1 und e1 eine Figur steht, oder nach der "h"-Rochade Figuren auf e1 und h1 zu finden sind. Dies ist im klassischen Schach nicht möglich. Alle andere Spielregeln sind wie beim klassischen Schach.

    Robert (Bobby) Fischer 11th World Champion, 1972 - 1975 Robert James Fischer is considered by many to be the greatest chess player of all time. He was born in Chicago, USA in 1943 and brought up in Brooklyn where his mother moved after she was divorced in 1945. He learned to play chess at the age of 6 and soon became deeply absorbed in the game saying "All I want to do, ever, is play chess." At the age of 13 he became the youngest national junior chess champion in the USA and at the age of 14 he became the youngest senior US Champion. In 1958, at the age of 15, he became the youngest Grandmaster in the history of chess. He broke the Soviet domination of the World Championship when he became the first American to win the title by defeating Boris Spassky of the USSR in Reykjavik, Iceland in 1972. In 1975 FIDE refused to meet Fischer's conditions for a World Championship match with the Soviet Anatoly Karpov and Fischer refused to play. Consequently FIDE awarded the title of World Champion to Karpov. After this dispute Fischer vanished from public eye for twenty years and moved to Europe.

    USCF Plans to Expunge the name "Bobby Fischer" from Chess
    Shoeless Joe Jackson, probably the greatest player in baseball history, had his name expunged from baseball history for allegedly taking a bribe to throw the 1919 World Series, even though he batted .375 in that series and set several records which were not broken until years later. Since then, until recently, the name of Shoeless Joe Jackson was expunged. Generations of young men grew up, lived their lives and died thinking that Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb were the greatest baseball players in history, because they never got to hear the name of Shoeless Joe Jackson. Now, the United States Chess Federation Executive Board proposes to do exactly the same thing with the name of Bobby Fischer, even though the USCF President, John McCrary, has admitted that he has never heard the tape on which Bobby Fischer made his allegedly objectionable remarks and that he does not know exactly what it was that Bobby Fischer said.
    The USCF Executive Board has ruled: The book "Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess" shall henceforth be sold under the title "Blank Blank Teaches Chess".
    Here is a really good idea. Thank you Paul Rubin.

    Global Commentary
    For Mr. Bob Ellsworth "shame" is just a word in the dictionary
    It's business as usual for the Jewish liar, embezzler and thief Bob Ellsworth. For this hardened, heartless Jewish criminal robbing all of Bobby Fischer's belongings in storage was a"piece of cake." Like taking candy from a baby. Hardly worth losing any sleep over. As a Jew he is convinced of the superiority of his"race" and even more importantly he knows that the fix is on and that the police won't touch him!
    As you may recall in about late 1998 or early 1999 the U.S.government, Bob Ellsworth and Bekins Moving and Storage company(Pasadena, California branch) plundered all of Bobby Fischer's cash valuables and other belongings (including his gold and silver coin collections) which Mr. Fischer had kept in storage at the Pasadena, California branch of Bekins Moving and Storage company for many years.

    Date of publication: 08/11/1993 For cast, rating and other information, (click here) By Roger Ebert
    "There was a boy, a chess player, once, who revealed that his gift consisted partly in a clear inner vision of potential moves of each piece as objects with flashing or moving tails of coloured light: He saw a live possible pattern of potential moves and selected them according to which ones made the pattern strongest, the tensions greatest. His mistakes were made when he selected not the toughest, but the most beautiful lines of light." From The Virgin in the Garden, by A. S. Byatt
    Child prodigies are found most often in three fields: chess, mathematics and music. All three depend upon an intuitive grasp of complex relationships. None depends on social skills, maturity, or insights into human relationships. A child who is a genius at chess can look at a board and see a universe that is invisible to the wisest adult.
    This is both a blessing and a curse. There is a beauty to the gift, but it does not necessarily lead to greater happiness in life as a whole.
