His chess fame was already high with six U.S. Championships to his credit including a scintillating, record breaking score of 11 out of 11 in the 1963/64 tournament.

The big chance to see Bobby up close was Fischer's 1964 exhibition tour. Following in the footsteps of such legends as Capablanca and Alekhine, Bobby barnstormed the U.S. and Canada from coast to His entertaining lectures, high level of play and personable manner won many new admirers.
