    Fischer, Bobby (Robert James Fischer), 1943-, American chess player, b. Chicago. In 1958, he was the youngest player to then become a grandmaster. In the Interzonal and Candidates' matches in 1970 and 1971 he won an unprecedented 20 straight games to qualify to challenge Boris Spassky for the world championship. When he overwhelmed Spassky in 1972, he became the only American world titlist and, according to a consensus of grandmasters, the strongest chess player in history. From then until 1992, Fischer did not play a single game of chess in public. He forfeited his world title in 1975 and thereafter turned down lucrative offers to play again. In 1992, he was indicted for participating in a commercial match in Yugoslavia, against which the United States had an economic boycott.

    Best Chess Movie (are there any others?)
    Mar 01 '00 (Updated Mar 06 '00)
    Author's Product Rating
    Excellent family movie, deals with themes of love and acceptance and how to deal with fears, captures spirit of chess well
    Predictable fare, a few chess inaccuracies Full Review Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot I was feeling nostalgic tonight. I used to coach a chess team and play in tournaments, yet I knew that the game was more than a mere game it represented Life itself. Searching for Bobby Fischer knows this too. Based on the true life story of chess prodigy Josh Waitzkin, the film will appeal to non chessplayers as well. It contains family values at its core, as young Josh strives for a balance between competing to be the best while simultaneously seeking the love and acceptance of his father. Josh does receive unconditional love from his mother (Joan Allen), and unconditional acceptance from Vinnie (Lawrence Fishburne), a Washington Square chess hustler who teaches Josh wild, tactical chess. Contrast this with his father (Joe Mantegna), who wants Josh to excel and takes him on the chess tournament circuit, and with Bruce Pandolfini (Ben Kingsley), a chess master who teaches Josh solid, strategical chess.

    65. Bobby Fischer And His Horse
    Searching for bobby fischer. The movie was released in 1993, the year after hewas driven from the US for violating economic sanctions by playing chess in
    Bobby Fischer and his horse Bobby Fischer is probably not as well known to young Americans as the movie which used his name, "Searching for Bobby Fischer." The movie was released in 1993, the year after he was driven from the US for violating economic sanctions by playing chess in Yugoslavia. He can't come back for tax problems. He's little more than a movie title today because when Fischer emerged as the world's, and perhaps history's, best chess player many of us were more focused on keeping up with Sesame Street's 4th season than international chess. Chess is more complicated than is obvious at first blush. This is the reason it's taken nearly a century of computing science to build a machine or system that can play chess better than a chess master. If you figure the number of moves possible in a chess game, you come up with more moves than there are atoms in the universe. To play this game well requires a special focus and intelligence. To be the world master at this game requires, perhaps, a singular intellect. The ability to foresee millions of moves, to classify and categorize groups and strategies so that those nearly infinite possible paths can be contained by the finite neurons in a human skull. Bobby Fischer has, debateably, the greatest raw intellect a human has turned up with so far. So far to the edge that none of us could hope to match him, not with training and practice to the end of our lives, not with it from birth. You couldn't beat him. Never.

Instead of long, drawn-out chapters of theory and history, Mr. Fischer gives an introductory chapter of the basics, and then uses the rest of the book to teach by example. Each page contains a chess board with pieces in various positions. Your objective is to plot the next moves to achieve the goal outlined. The next page gives you the board with the correct move complete. As you go through the exercises, you will begin to "see" the moves as well as understand the theory behind them.

    March 9 ~  Making Good Moves Logical Chess: Move by Move "I don't believe in p s y c h o l o g y I believe in good moves." ~ Bobby Fischer Eccentric, but definitely someone with good moves, American chess master Robert James Fischer (1943-) was born on this day in Chicago, Illinois. He learned chess at six, then became the youngest ranking grand master at the mere age of 15. In 1972, Fischer was the first American to win the World Chess Championship, beating Russian champion, Boris Spassky. Fischer lost the first game , protested the presence of cameras and forfeited the second game. In the next four games, with confidence , astonishing moves, aggressive tactics, and brilliant combinations, he beat Spassky. At one point, Soviet security dismantled Fischer's chair to look for information-feeding electronic devices. Fischer's victory made him a legend and breathed life into the game of chess. "I like the moment when I break a man's ego," Fischer said. The game of chess was introduced in India in the year 531. William Shakespeare refers to the game at least 57 times in his writing . Throughout history the game has inspired imagination , logic, planning, intuition, and caution.

    by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat "The ultimate human work is the shaping of a soul."
    The process of shaping a soul begins in childhood as we listen to the voices inside us and cautiously pay attention to the words and deeds of our parents. We heed the imperatives of play and pleasure as we reach out to experience a wider world. Values and visions are tested, and we begin to express our own singular nature in a variety of ways. Searching for Bobby Fischer (1993) is based on a 1984 book of the same title about a seven-year-old chess prodigy, Josh Waitzkin. Written and directed by Steven Zaillian, this engaging drama offers a behind-the-scenes look at the fascinating world of chess tournaments and the widespread yearning within this community for a successor to appear on the scene with the genius, flair, and intensity of American champion Bobby Fischer.

I started by reading all the 1- and 2-star reviews posted here. Almost without exception, all these people wanted to do is complain about how many things were NOT covered in the book. Hello? Chess is a complex game, people! You can't teach everything at once (and you sure as hell wouldn't sell it for eight bucks if you could). Stop worrying about all the things that *aren't* in this book and look at what is. I think it's correct to teach simple one-to-four-move checkmating patterns early on. Checkmate is, after all, the object of the game, and most beginners do forget that. Many of the principles you learn this way can be adapted to other situations when you just want to capture material.

    Searching for Bobby Fischer: Are online games hoax or real thing? Tuesday, September 11, 2001 By Jonathan D. Silver, Post-Gazette Staff Writer Pawn hog. That pretty much sums up how Carnegie Mellon University professor Danny Sleator was feeling about British chess grandmaster Nigel Short yesterday. Short disclosed over the weekend that he believes his anonymous opponent in 50 games played online through Sleator's company, Internet Chess Club, was reclusive American chess legend Bobby Fischer. "To me, they are what an undiscovered Mozart symphony would be to a music lover," Short wrote of the games. Unfortunately for chess devotees, Short said he kept no record of the moves, ensuring no one else will be able to appreciate Fischer's genius if it is indeed Fischer. "It's frustrating," Sleator said. "He's hoarding it. He's not letting us hear the Mozart symphony."

        Justin's Rating: Grrr. . . OKAY! I LIKED IT ALREADY!
        Justin's Review: A movie about chess. Cough. Kill me now. String me up by my thumbs, force me to watch the entire lifespan of a fly and then trace his 28,000 decendents through day two... it might be a better thing. Don't get me wrong, I like to play chess, but a MOVIE about CHESS? Let's consider how you might make that interesting. My vision for Chess: The Movie goes like this. First, it'd have to be live-action. Make all the helpless pawns the most irritating Hollywood actors and actresses you can think of. Pauly Shore, Carrot Top, David Arquette, Fran Dreschner, Poochie the Dog, the Wayans Brothers, Jar-Jar Binks, and just for the heck of it, Julia Roberts. Then give the rooks long-range nuclear capacity. Then have the horsies be Mr. Ed and Babe. Make Samuel L. Jackson be one of the kings, and Mel Gibson be the other one. Have the bishops perform "Crouching Tiger" martial arts (running up the side of the board, skipping over the tops of the other pieces). Both queens should be ex-girlfriends on PMS. Then have the entire movie consist of long fight sequences, with derogatory remarks made about other, "lesser" board games. Knight: Go back to playing Scrabble, you Q-U-I-T-T-E-R!

    EL PASO, Texas (AP) Archie Waters
    Editor's note:
    There is an interesting story written by Tim Krabbé about Archie Waters' encounter with Ton Sijbrands, a world champion in draughts (checkers with 10X10 board) from the Netherlands.
    "When Sijbrands became World Champion for the first time, in 1972, he won a trip to Reykjavik, to see the World Chess Championship match between Spassky and Fischer. I hoped to find an opportunity in him to get to Fischer. Word was that Fischer was interested in draughts, and there was a little black guy from New York in his entourage, Archie Waters , who was said to be his ping pong partner, and a very strong draughts player. I could see myself and Archie Waters, envoys paving the way for a historic meeting. But when Sijbrands and Waters got together, it turned out Waters had never heard of him and also, he thought he was the World Championin another variant of the game. It was a moving sight to see my World Champion and this other world champion explaining their rules to each other."

    This film tells a story of the childhood of young chess champion in search of achievementalong the lines of the world famous chess champion bobby fischer.
    MOVIEPROP.COM'S MOVIE REVIEW PAGES Site Map Home TV and Movie Pages Reviews Searching for Bobby Fisher Bobby Fisher is best remembered as the preminent American chess champion. This film tells a story of the childhood of young chess champion in search of achievement along the lines of the world famous chess champion Bobby Fischer. The boy excels at chess but yet is pressured into competitions and events by his father. Throughout the movie people play chess in parks and in tournaments. To these people chess was a game of fun or skill. But to the boy, chess is made an obsession, partly by his father, and partly by himself. The film shows him competing as a child with timed moves and competitions with rooms of competitors. Such competitions can kill a boy's childhood or grow a man to excellence. What happened in this take on the history of a rising boy champion, involves a little of both of these things. The boy's mother says to her husband that their son "Is not afraid of losing, he's just afraid of losing your love." Such was a dramtic speech but somewhat detracts from the literal logical nature that chess ultimately is. In the films final match, the boy pulls a move combination he learned by another player and wins at the utter surprise of his childish competitor. The movie is definately for chess players and speaks about the inner struggles that occur in the mind's of those that strive for excellence which is never the easy path.

    Back to Players
    Bobby James Fischer, USA 1972-75
    Most people agree that Bobby Fischer was probably the greatest chess player of all time. They also agree that he was undoubtedly the most controversial world chess champion. He was born in Chicago, but his family moved several times before they finally settled in Brooklyn, New York. At age 6 both he and his sister learned how the chess pieces moved. His parents separated early, and when he was 17, his mother left the US to live elsewhere. After a simultaneous exhibition match that his mother took him to, he began playing chess all day, usually at the Manhattan Chess Club. His games were influenced most by Capablanca. He focused on the opening and became deadly with the king's Indian Defense and the Najdorf Variation of the Sicilian Defense. By age 15 Fischer had become US chess champion, and the youngest grandmaster in FIDE history. He dropped out of school and became a professional chess player. Fischer was notorious for dropping out of matches and for withdrawing from chess competition. But when he did play, he overwhelmed his opponents by amazing margins. For instance, he won the 1963-64 US championship by the incredible score of 11-0! He went on to win that title another six times. When Fischer met Spassky for the title match, the event was roiled in dispute. But the match went on, and Fischer won by a four-point margin, becoming the first American to win the FIDE world championship.
