  5. Bobby Fischer for Beginners

    Bobby Fischer for Beginners

    Our Price: $16.95
    Bobby Fischer's lone fight against the Soviet chess powerhouse made him a global hero, also for people who did not play chess at all.

The memories of his successwere clouded by his anti-American and anti-Semite rants. Learn More
