Last week, we posted here the video of Bobby Fischer's second visit to the Philippines in 1973. This video is a much earlier one, from his first visit to the country in 1967. A handsome young man of just 24. The sponsor of the tournament, the MERALCO, gave this collection of photo of Bobby Fischer as a gift to commemorate his trip. Amazing thing is, Bobby Fischer has yet to become a world champion when he visits the Philippines but look at the kind of reception he receives.
This one is a must see for all Filipino chess aficionados.
