Chess on TV - for real!

Game Show Network (GSN) has been airing a documentary series entitled "Anything to Win." On April 9th at 8pm EDT look for the premiere of the next installment, "The Mad Genius of Bobby Fischer."

In addition to excellent Chess tactics, Fischer was known to utilize the element of intimidation and control in challenging opponents, organizations and governments. From using extreme psychological warfare to defeat Boris Spassky for the title of World Chess Champion, to defying the United States government in order to play a match on his terms, Fischer has proven he will do anything - rational or not - to win.
