Product Details

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.

It's is a treasure trove for every Fischer fan.
