Bobby Fischer's About

[]

A chess prodigy, Bobby Fischer went on to become the greatest chess player of all time, bagging the World Championship title along with several others. What made Fischer a stark superior from his fellow contestants and arch rivals was his immaculate playing skills. His innovative combination of moves made him a star in his own right. At the age of 13, he bagged his first world title by becoming the winner of the US Junior Championship. He went on to become the youngest grandmaster and the youngest ever candidate for the World Championship. In July 1971, he became the first official World Chess Federation (FIDE) number-one-ranked player. He remained at number one position for a total of 54 months. Going on a self-proclaimed exile, he returned to playing chess against Boris Spassky for an unofficial match in 1992. Though he won the same, he spent the rest on his life in exile evading an arrest warrant by the US. Towards the end of his career, he patented a modified chess timing system - Fischer clock and a new variant of chess called Fischerandom (Chess960).
