Bobby Fischer at Age 15

The following video will appeal to some of the younger readers of this blog. Here is Bobby Fischer as a goofy 15 year old who was already the top chess player in the United States. In fact, he was soon to fly to Yugoslavia to play against the best of the world. Could you imagine yourself standing on the stage in Bobby's place? What would be your secret?

The video comes from the TV game show "I've Got a Teen-Age Secret" on March 26, 1958.
