Fischer's chess chair!

Chess news and chess trivia blog (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2010

Hello Everyone,

This is a nice video about Bobby Fischer's chair. A Daily Icon post has a short video by Vitra that refers to a historic event. Grandmaster Bobby Fischer had specifically requested the Time Life Lobby Chair designed by Charles and Ray Eames while he competed in the World Chess Championship in Reykjavik In 1972. He said he could concentrate well in the chair. When his opponent Boris Spassky saw it, he refused to play until he got one too. Here is the video. Enjoy!

P.S. Chair or no chair why does the heart skip a beat every single time you watch (the) Fischer at the chessboard?
