I just saw "Searching for Bobby Fischer" ~ wow! It makes you feel like learning chess! I had no idea chess could be such a fast game ~ I love the scenes in Washington Square Park: what a great beginning to Josh's chess experience... And how fantastic that in real life he was good in many sports and merged his chess learning into his later study of Tai Chi and became exceptional at that too!
For following up on this.
