    Five in a Row (Renju) for Beginners to Advanced Players

  4. Bobby Fischer for Beginners

    Bobby Fischer for Beginners

    Our Price: $16.95

The Russians trembled before him, the Americans and the rest of the world cheered him on. Fischer's chess prowess and his will to win were unparalleled. But so were his eccentric behaviour and his paranoia. After he won the world title, Bobby Fischer vanished and the former prodigy became a mystery. The memories of his successwere clouded by his anti-American and anti-Semite rants. Learn More
