The Best Fischer Clip Ever

I've Got a Secret - Bobby Fischer (3:10) • 'Chess champion Bobby Fischer appears on an "I've Got a Teen-Age Secret" special on March 26, 1958.'

'TEEN-AGER'S STRATEGY DEFEATS ALL COMERS!!' • Dick Clark: 'This strategy, did it make people happy?'; Mr.X: 'It made me happy!'


Later: About 2:30 into the clip, Bobby receives two tickets to Moscow to play in a tournament. This was the Interzonal in Portoroz (Portorose) that started August 1958. Moscow is a long distance from Portoroz, which is on the Adriatic coast of Slovenia. What's the story?
