Bobby Fischer Games Collection
Robert Fischer single-handedly made Chess popular in the US when he won the world-championship match against Boris Spassky in 1972. It was the most-watched chess match in history and still is due it the match being at the height of the cold war with an American fighting against a Russian. Fischer has many achievements but probably the most incredible was with the US Championship with a score of 11-0. No-one has achieved this feat before or since.
