20 amazing facts about the extraordinary life of Bobby Fischer

In honor of his birthday (March 9th 1943) we will uncover 20 interesting facts about Robert James Fischer, also known as ‘Bobby’ Fischer.

  5. At 15 Bobby Fischer was announced youngest Chess Grandmaster and World Championship candidate

  7. From 1957 to 1966 he won the US American Championship eight times in a row
  8. At 20 years old (1964) he achieved to win the US Championship with 11 out of 11 points – the only one to ever accomplish this task.
