The 1972 Bobby Fischer – Boris Spassky, World Championship; inspired a whole generation of chess players who are just about ready to return to the chess world – this was GAME ONE in that match, in which Fischer playing the Black pieces suddenly allowed his Bishop to be trapped as if losing his mind. Maybe it was a psychological ploy or simply the pressure having got to Bobby; we shall never really know?


I am merely hoping to inspire a new generation of young people through the Greenlands Chess Academy, and thereby grab the hearts and minds of the next generation, just as Bobby Fischer challenging 50 years of Soviet World Chess Champions had caught my imagination all those years ago back when I was a 15 year old.
