Fischer, Robert (Bobby)

(b. 1943)
   US chess master. Fischer won the US chess championship seven times running, and in 1972 took the world title from the Russian Boris Spassky after an extraordinary series of games in Iceland, which turned out to be as much a war of nerves as a game of chess. His displays of temperament made headlines everywhere.
