Perhaps the greatest chess player in history, certainly the most controversial chess player of the 20th century, Bobby Fischer has been in custody in Japan for the last six months, fighting deportation to the US. Why? Fischer is accused of violating US sanctions when he played a rematch in Yugoslavia in 1992 against longtime rival and 10th World Champion Boris Spassky. During this re-match of the 1972 World Championship, Fischer won and took home $3.5 million in prize money. Fischer's been trying to renounce his American citizenship for years and has been a man without a country for over a decade. Last night, Iceland (where the 1972 World Championship was played) granted Fischer a residency. He still has some challenges getting out of prison in Japan, but I, for one, would love to see him a free man again. I was 2 years old when Bobby became the 11th World Champion and his games are still a source of inspiration for me and as beautiful as any great artwork. Check out this game he played against Donald Byrne when he was 13 YEARS OLD.
