Rare chess photos of Bobby Fischer!

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

You will simply love this collection of Bobby Fischer photos from 1943-2008!

Fischer visits Tal in hospital in Curacao, 1962.

The International Chess Tournament of Monaco is 
attended by prince Rainier (center) seen chatting 
with Fischer in March 1967.

There are hundreds of photos out there that you would love to flip through. Enjoy.

    According to reports I have read; Fischer was the only player from the tournament to visit Tal.

    fantastic. surely Fischer is someone who will never be forgotten in the world of chess no matter how many generations go by. i find a lot of similarities between fischer and carlsen. maybe carlsen is an improved version of fischer. i think they could be aliens maybe.

    truly what an amazing collection. In reference to @Jerry. BOBBY FISCHER INDEED WAS THE BEST - human and chess player. I wish he would return.
