    What the hell?! The guy could get 10 years in prison, because he went to Yugoslavia to play a chess match?! The world is insane.

    Well he won quite a bit of money from that chess match too... funny how he'll get more prison time for playing a game of chess than martha stewart got for illegal trading :roll:

    Does that bug the hell out of anyone else? I hate some of the stupid laws that are out there. I love Texas, but I'll be the first to admit that we have some of the stupider laws ever created. For example, As of two years ago, it was still in the law books that any prisoners who finished their sentance is promised a horse and like $5 from the state. Funny! :D

    No way! That is so funny. I wonder if anyone took them up on that in the last couple decades...

    I don't think either of them should face jail time, sounds like plain vindictiveness in both cases and yes I think Martha's a B***H but compared with some other characters involved in the financial shenanigans she's an angel.
    I used to play a lot of chess way back and like many things it's lost it's appeal over the years but I well remember the Fischer/Spassky match, it was quite something at the time.
    Didn't know about his disappearance etc. until this article though Voods, thanks for the link.

    I played chess since I was 7 and I followed Bobby Fischer's matches along the years. As a matter of fact I have the Match of the Century book of all the matches played with Spassky.

    Yeah, I'm a chess nut... And what I'd like to see is Bobby playing the computer that Kasparov played.
