Since then, blindfold chess - the art of playing without sight of the board or pieces - has produced some of the greatest feats of human memory, progressing to the extent that the world record is 45 simultaneous blindfold games.

    The Most Famous Chess Player Explained

    Bobby Fischer's lone fight against the Soviet chess powerhouse made him a global hero, also for people who did not play chess at all. The Russians trembled before him, the Americans and the rest of the world cheered him on. Fischer's chess prowess and his will to win were unparalleled. But so were his eccentric behaviour and his paranoia. After he won the world title, Bobby Fischer vanished and the former prodigy became a mystery. The memories of his successwere clouded by his anti-American and anti-Semite rants.

    Bobby Fischer: My 60 Memorable Games - RUSSIAN EDITION
    With Introductions to the Games by International Grandmaster Larry Evans
    Catalog Code: B0282IS

    This is the infamous translation into Russian of the famous work by Bobby Fischer “My 60 Memorable Games”. This translation is famous because it was denounced vehemently by Bobby Fischer in his radio broadcasts because this translation was not authorized by him. However, he even more vehemently objected to the revision by the English publisher Batsford, as he had not given them permission to reprint his work even though they had a contractual right to reprint his work by virtue of an agreement they had with the original publisher, Simon and Schuster. To make matters much worse, the Batsford edition translated all the moves from Descriptive Notation as in P-K4 into Algebraic Notation as in e4. Batsford hired English Grandmaster Nunn to go through the book and correct any mistakes in Fischer's analysis. Unfortunately, in the course of “correcting” Fischer's “mistakes”, the English grandmaster made mistakes of his own, because one “correction” required an illegal move, as the piece was pinned, as otherwise the king would have been in check. So, in reality the correction was wrong and the original note by Fischer was correct.
