The American Grandmaster Bobby Fischer (1943-2008) was chess World Champion 1972 to 1975 when he retired from chess,only to make a comeback in 1992.
He was to many people the best ever chess player.
HBO film makers have made a documentary film of his life,to be shown in England in July.
I give a game played by Fischer when he was just 13 years old.
It was this game that made Fischer known worldwide in chess,and marked him as a future Champion.
The game was against a top American player,this game was given the title of
"game of the century"
