One of the most important chess books ever written, reissued in celebration of a chess genius, Bobby Fischer. The American takes the reader through 60 of his games, describing his thoughts, the intricacies behind his and his opponent's strategies, the tactical justification of moves and the psychological battle in each one. You'll find beautifully simple positional play next to out-of-this-world combinations that are just breathtaking. Fischer played nearly all of these games as a grandmaster so they are at the very highest level, but his lucid commentary makes every move and idea both accessib

In 1972 a boy from Brooklyn broke the hegemony of Soviet chess. Bobby Fischer, the greatest genius the game had ever seen, completed his crusade against the 'commie cheaters' by defeating Boris Spassky in Reykjavik. The Match of the Century electrified the world. No one wanted to miss even the slightest detail about the struggle of Fischer against the superpower that for decades had exploited its superiority in chess as an irrefutable justification of communism. Almost a year before the first move was made at the board, the infighting started. The world looked on in anxiety as Bobby quarrelled

A legend on the road : Bobby Fischer's 1964 simultaneous exhibition tour by John Donaldson( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1964 Bobby Fisher wasn't a complete unknown, not with six U.S. Championships to his credit including a scintillating 11-0 in the 1963/64 affair. But U.S. chess players had never had a real opportunity to see him in action up close. During his 1964 exhibition tour, he barnstormed the U.S. and Canada from coast to coast, and his entertaining lectures, high level of play and personable manner won him many new admirers. This is a comprehensive look at the tour with newspaper reports, magazine articles, personal reminiscences and lots of games, many of which have never been published before. This second edition features new material including a recently rediscovered exhibition in Indianapolis, first-hand accounts from San Francisco, Little Rock and Pittsburgh, several games, plus photos and artifacts as well as corrections
