FisCher in 1960..
Robert James "Bobby" Fischer (March 9, 1943 – January 17, 2008) was an American chess Grandmaster and the 11th World Chess Champion.. Many consider him the greatest chess player of all time..At age 13 Fischer won a "brilliancy" that became known as "The Game of the Century".. Starting at age 14, Fischer played in 8 US Championships, winning each by at least a one-point margin. At age 15, Fischer became both the youngest grandmaster up to that time and the youngest candidate for the World Championship. At age 20, Fischer won the 1963–64 U.S. Championship with 11/11, the only perfect score in the history of the tournament. Fischer's My 60 Memorable Games (1969) remains a revered work in chess literature..In 1972, he captured the World Chess Championship from Boris Spassky of the USSR in a match held in Reykjavík, Iceland, publicized as a Cold War confrontation which attracted more worldwide interest than any chess championship before or since..During the 1990s and early 2000s, Fischer lived in Hungary, Germany, the Philippines, Japan, and Iceland, and made increasingly anti-American and anti-semitic remarks on various radio stations..Possibly as a result, his U.S. passport was revoked..Unaware of the revocation, Fischer traveled to Japan, where he was arrested by Japanese authorities and detained for more than 8 months under threat of deportation..In March 2005, Iceland granted Fischer full citizenship, leading Japanese authorities to release him from prison.. Fischer flew to Iceland, where he lived until his darth..Magnús Skúlason reported Fischer's last words as "Nothing is as healing as the human touch"..For most of his career, Fischer was predictable in his use of openings and variations of those openings..Fischer was a master of playing with, and against, the Sicilian Defense..
