American-born prodigy and chess writer Bobby Fischer is considered by many to be the greatest chess player of all time. By the time he was 15 years old, Fischer became the youngest grandmaster up to that time and the youngest World Championship candidate. He became the eleventh World Chess Champion when he won the match in 1972 against USSR’s Boris Spassky which was publicized as a Cold War confrontation. This event attracted more interest across the world than any other chess championship in history.
