The Geek Picture of the Day played the game of the century.
In this June 21, 1957 photo, fourteen-year-old chess sensation Bobby Fischer starts to make a move with his queen during a tournament match with Charles Saxon at the Manhattan Chess Club in New York.
Fischer lost the match, but just over a year later he became the youngest grandmaster ever. He died in 2008, and is considered one of the game’s greatest players.

Bears some resemblance to Carlsen. From the chessic point of view Bobby was magnificent!
