One of my most favorite things!!

   This is a small album showing one of my most favorite things in this whole world. An exact replica of the set used by Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky in their epic 1972 World Chess Championship Match, produced by the House of Staunton. It arrived on 2/17/2011.

   My girlfriend Donna (RookedonChess) ordered it for me a few days ago and we're going to play a game to break the puppy in. I can't wait to see it. I'll be so excited I'll end up losing. Laughing  I'm going to write down the moves on paper so I can record them and put them up. Smile

    Something else that could be fun is to go over all the games in their world championship match on that board. Studying over world championship games is good in itself, but doing it on that board would add a little something.

    I have three different sets from the House of Staunton and three boards (all gifts, I could never afford them Smile) and they are gorgeous! You will enjoy them. I love the feel of wood opposed to plastic, so when I go to tournaments at our chess center, I bring the board and pieces (in a nice carrying bag) and use them instead of the plastic pieces and vinyl board provided. Enjoy!!!!
