Johnny Carson asked Bobby Fischer when he appeared on the Tonight Show shortly after he had become world chess champion, Bobby looked at Carson as if he'd lost his marbles and replied, dead earnest,'I play chess.Bobby Fischer's lone fightagainst 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 formerprodigy became a mystery.
